"Garbage Cans" as written by and Leslie David/reny Howe....
I watch my neighbors next door
The Mr. and Mrs. at war
He lost his arm back in Nam
And they both drink like fish

They used to swap fluids at night
But now all they swap is a 911 fight
And fading plastic garbage cans
Waiting for the garbage man

To all the junk I'm waving goodbye
Fading plastic garbage cans
Full of things that lost their relevance
I wonder if there's treasure inside?

The flies have made friends on the curb
Just like their buddy dead bird
Cancel the picnic the love nest is swarming with bees
Their yelling is at razors edge

Suddenly silence the lights have gone dead
Fading plastic garbage cans
Waiting for the garbage man
To all the junk I'm waving goodbye

Fading plastic garbage cans
Full of things that lost their relevance
I wonder if there's treasure inside?
For days it's been quiet

I only see Mr. Neighbor
And garbage day's here now
I wonder where the Mrs. could be?
They used to swap fluids at night

But now all they swap is a 911 fight
Fading plastic garbage cans
Waiting for the garbage man
To all the junk I'm waving goodbye

Fading plastic garbage cans
Full of things that lost their relevance
I wonder if there's treasure inside?
Garbage cans, garbage man

Garbage garbage garbage garbage cans
Is there treasure inside?
