Lyrics

ECO BLUES


Eco, eco: eco, eco,
Eco, eco: eco, eco,
Eco, eco, eco, eco –
(I got the Eco Blues!)

Life was so simple,
life was so plain;
then the government told me
that I had to change,
‘cos the world was dying –
pollution and acid rain:
it was all my fault;
yeah: I got all the blame.

So I spent all my money
on solar-panel frames,
but they just don’t work
in the dark or the pouring rain:
and my new wind-turbine
is killing all the birds;
it makes so much noise
our voices can’t be heard!

Eco, eco: eco, eco,
Eco, eco: eco, eco –
I got the Eco Blues!

I got the Eco Blues!

Now I spend all my time
sorting out my trash;
they won’t collect it
until it’s neatly stashed.
I’ve got a bin for my foodstuff,
a bin for glass
and one for the paper
I use to wipe my arse!

A bin for plastic,
and a bin for my tins –
if I don’t recycle
it’s (called) a deadly sin!

Eco, eco: eco, eco,
I got the Eco Blues!
Eco, eco: eco, eco –
I got the Eco Blues!

I got the Eco Blues!

They tell me I can’t blow-off
because my greenhouse gas
will melt the polar ice-caps
and turn on the tap
of rising seas – that will flood all the towns;
yeah: my bad wind has got to stop
or else we all drown!

Oh: Eco, eco: eco, eco,
I got the Eco Blues!
Eco, eco: eco, eco –

(I tried to walk
down to the bar
because they told me
not to use my car:
but it proved to be
just a step too far
as by the time I got there
they’d gone and shut the bar.)

Oh: Eco, eco, eco, eco,
Eco, eco, eco, eco –
Eco, eco, eco, eco
I got the Eco Blues!

Now I spend all my time
sorting out my trash;
they won’t collect it
until it’s neatly stashed.
I’ve got a bin for foodstuff,
a bin for glass
and one for the paper
I use to wipe my arse!

I got the Eco Blues!

I got the Eco Blues!
I got the Eco -
I got the Eco -
Eco, eco, eco, eco –
I got the Eco Blues!

(Repeat and fade)
