Crossing Guard

I look left


I look right


Not a car in sight.

Oh I look long


I look hard


I’m the crossing guard. 

I’m the boss when you cross the street

I’m the dude when you move your feet

I’m the king of the boulevard


I’m the crossing guard.

 I look up

I look down


Not a car around.

 Oh I look near

I look far


I’m the crossing guard.

I’m the boss when you cross the street

I’m the dude when you move your feet

Plumbers

 Last night I was bathing

And oh what a pain


My sweet rubber ducky

Got stuck in the drain.

When I told my mother, told my mother

She let out a moan


She gave me a towel


And picked up the phone.

La da da


La da da


La da da


The plumbers again.

La da da


La da da


The plumbers again.

This morning quite early


I got up to drink


Somehow my sweet blankie


Got washed down the sink.


When I told my mother, told my mother

She let out a moan

She gave me a towel


And picked up the phone.

La da da


La da da


La da da


The plumbers again.

La da da


La da da


The plumbers again.

The plumbers again

The plumbers again.

 

 

 Garbage Truck

 When that lovely garbage truck is close

That’s the time of week I love the most

As it comes down the street


My heart just skips a beat

When that lovely garbage truck is close

When that lovely garbage truck is here

I jump out of bed and give a cheer

Each time they dump the trash


I break out in a rash

When that lovely garbage truck is here.

 CHORUS:

Crashing


Banging


Crunching


Clanging


Hear the grinding of the gears?

It’s all music to my ears!

 When that lovely garbage truck goes by

I get little tears in inside my eye


Those guys ride off with pride


Just hanging from the side

When that lovely garbage truck goes by.

 CHORUS:

Crashing


Banging


Crunching


Clanging


Hear the grinding of the gears?

It’s all music to my ears!

 When that lovely garbage truck is close

That’s the time of week I love the most

As it comes down the street


My heart just skips a beat

When that lovely garbage truck is close.


When that lovely garbage truck is clo-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-ose!
