We rub; we scrub
But the filth; the dirt of mankind never goes.
Clean up the waste
Rinse, ‘n flush and fumigate
Cleanse and sponge and ventilate
Sanitize, deodorize, dehumidify, and purify
Sweep away, wash away the grime
Scour away, disinfect the slime.
Garbage, garbage….lavish waste and rubbish
Carnage, carnage….cruelty and anguish
Over, over, over consumption….under, undercover corruption
High-browed conceit…. lowdown deceit…
those who mistreat, scheme & who cheat
Nastiness & wickedness; greediness & naughtiness;
dirtiness & grubbiness; sloppiness & filthiness
Too much garbage…we rub
So much carnage….we scrub
Over consumption…we rub
Undercover corruption….we scrub
Clean it up!....But the filth, the dirt: never goes.
So disgusting!…dirty, dirty
Reeking and putrid!…dirty, dirty
The filth, the dirt never goes
We rub ‘n scrub ‘n rub ‘n scrub
The filth, the dirt never goes.
