(Woo oh oh oh)
I'll take you for a ride
On my garbage truck
Oh no!
I'll take you to the dump
'Cause you're my queen

Take you uptown
I'll show you the sights
You know you want to ride
On my garbage truck
Truck truck truck

We'll pass our engines by
Drive right through the needle's eye
My garbage truck
Oh my my my my

I got a stereo
You just got to turn the knob
And baby we'll go
As far as we can
I'll be your garbage man

And I'll take out your junk
And I'll crush it down
Jesus in the rearview
And the highway patrol is up ahead
In my garbage truck truck

I'll never throw you away
When you're old and grey
Just roll it away

    Lyric CorrectionYou're sure it's not "We'll pass emissions by"
    instead of "We'll pass our engines by?"
    I swear that's what it sounds like, and it still makes sense.

    Song MeaningThe song was literally meant to be bad. As stated by Beck in LA Times, they made the song to be complete noise. I'm sure the song being about garbage is supposed to signify that as well. As stated, the originals of the song were even more noisier and more obnoxious than the performed version in the movie.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a guy who doesn't have much to offer other than his love. His garbage truck isn't much, but he'll drive her around, play music, and love her forever. It's really sweet actually, and love really shouldn't be about possessions, i.e. what you can buy a person or what fancy car someone drives
