Garbage Can Ballet

Living in a garbage can can be a lot of fun,

It has its ups

Do de do doo

And downs.

For paper cups

and coffee grounds

la la

Living in a garbage can can be a lot of fun

Especially if you meet the perfect on-yun.

Oh the great garbage can is just full of good stuff

All the discarded refuse of man.

Like a half used banana

Whose girlfriend is Ana

Who shout "Let us out of this can!"

Wa wa Woe said the poor brussel sprout

Dibby di die

If only me and the banana can get out.

With wine and asparagus

Would stand up and marry us

But the first thing to do is get out.

Wa wa wa wa wa wa wa

Now an old piece of ham is in love with some lamb

But a young head of lettuce is too

Now said the ham to the lettuce

The lamb will forget us

As soon as he learns I love you

Woe woe woe the great garbage can

It's a tribute to the ingenuity of man.

Where corn and tomatoes

All mixed with potatoes

And thrown in together with ham.

Where a brussel sprout and a saurkraut

Can get together and have it out.

And no one seems to care about the plan.

And a succotash and a piece of hash

Can get together and have a bash

For life is always equal in the can.
