Toxic Transport Tune - Green Like Me

By Paul Spencer, Songwriter

Iím an ethical consumer, thatís a 90ís thing to be,
So itís hydrocarbon aerosols instead of CFCs,
And now that Maccaís uses those recycled paper trays,
My care for our environment can last for days and days.

I was going to start a compost but I couldnít stand the smell,
So I put it in the garbage with the glass and cans as well,
I know I should recycle but I just donít have the time,
To be sorting through the garbage can with a hectic life like mine.

You say I shouldnít drive to work, but go by bus or train,
And have me waiting half an hour each morning in the rain,
My mobile phone would get all wet, my hair spray would dissolve,
Iíll be environmental if discomfortís not involved.

Now itís great to save our forest but I think itís fair to say
That if someoneís job is threatened then the forests must give way,
Well we canít live without money, just look at those who do,
From their hair and clothes itís obvious they havenít got a clue.

Itís not that I hate ferals, or people who are queer,
In fact I have a friend who has two earrings in one ear,
Itís just they tend to smell a bit or so the rumours go,
But Iím just being prejudiced Ďcause I really wouldnít know.

I took some re-used bags once when I did the weekly shop,
But I felt a little foolish so that practice had to stop,
I still buy all the packaging I used to buy before,
But now I feel guilty so that counts as doing more.

What do you mean - inactive? Iím PC and up to date,
I buy dolphin-friendly tuna and I think Greenpeace is great,
I use unleaded petrol in my brand-new Commodore,
And Iím boycotting my French class and the local French bread store.
