ROCK THE GARBAGE

« Fresh Garbage », une chanson sur les ordures par le groupe californien « Spirit », enregistré en 1968 sur leur premier album, appelé lui aussi « Spirit ».

Fresh garbage . . .
Fresh garbage . . .

Look beneath your lid some morning,
See those things you didn’t quite consume
The world’s a can for
Your fresh garbage . . .

Look beneath your lid some morning,
See those things you didn’t quite consume
Your fresh garbage . . .

Fresh garbage . . .
Fresh garbage . .

« Toxic Garbage Island » par le groupe Métal français Gojira, de leur album « The Way of All Flesh » (2008). Le groupe, très connu par les fans du Hellfest et de la musique métal extrême, reprend souvent des thèmes écologiques dans ses chansons.

Mysterious form, soul in the dark
Under this heavy sealing concrete waves
Followed by servants, funeral cortge
This pale ghost is gathering his strength

Ghost, pale, the procession is crawling

Plastic form dead things, it is now so clear
How could I fail to understand
Cities are burning, the trees are dying
My heart awake but still
Pain is killing me, pain is killing me

Take this pestilent destruction out of my way
The great pacific garbage patch is exhausted
And the world is sliding away in a vortex of floating refuse
With the sacred one you have lost

GARBAGE MAN

I wanna tell you about my baby,
Yeah…, she run off with the garbage man.
I wanna tell you about my baby,
Yeah…, she ran away with the garbage man.

She better come back quick,
Come back and empty my garbage can.

I don’t know where she’s been,
And I don’t know where she going.
I don’t know where she’s been,
And I don’t know where she going.

Please, come on back baby,
My trash can is really over flowin’.

You know babe,
She spend all my hard earned cash.
You know babe,
She spend all my hard earned cash.

She better come back this morning,
or a shotgun is bringing her back
