about

A love song about recycling.

lyrics

Friends of the Earth

You saw me today and lets be frank
I was down at the bottle bank - With Hank
I put in my glass - and Hank made a pass

I won’t deny that it don’t mean a thing
Cos I was out recycling - With Jim
I kissed him again - and again and again and again

You were keen to make romantic plans
But I was happy just crushing cans - with Hans
He’s from Germany - and he showed me his wormery

I hang around with loads of new men
Who are non sexist and are into Zen
you tried to show me what your love was worth
But I ran away… - With the Friends of the Earth

You wanted to go out on a date
But I’d already gone out to demonstrate - With Jake
He was on a mission – to ban nuclear fission

you asked me out for a candlelit meal
I said no thanks cos I don’t eat veal - With Neal
He runs a crèche - and he was getting fresh

I don’t want a relationship with you
So I blew you out for a lentil stew - With Lou
Yeah I can be a vegan - If he can

Chorus

You sat at home waiting for my call
But I was out at the green peace stall - With Saul
He had some old chat up line - about showing me his wind turbine

But I guess you realised it was over
The day you caught me buying Ecover - With Rover
Cos Rovers a Dog - Yes, I prefer that dog to you

Cos Rovers the dog that I set free
The night I raided the laboratory - With Lee
Cos Lee’s a cool cat - He even wears a fake fur leopard skin pill box hat
