Garbageman Blues

DuPree, Merritt

Ooh, I’ve got some teardrops – Been cryin’ the whole night through

First you say you love me - Then you tear my poor heart in two

Well, I got to clear my head - Try to figure out your point of view

 

Cause I just don’t understand – No, I just don’t understand

How come you treat me like a Hot Dang Garbage Man

 

 

How many times have I hung my head – Tryin’ to justify the pain

Could have gone on down the street – Now I’m goin’ steadily insane

I can’t figure the reason why – I’m givin’ all this love in vain

 

And I still don’t understand – No, I still don’t understand

How come you treat me like a Hot Dang Garbage Man

 

Now you say you love me – Well, I don’t believe that’s quite true

You say you been too good to me - But I been pretty good to you

Yeah, I’m gonna find me a brand new Baby – To give all my lovin’ to

 

One who’s gonna understand – Really, really understand

And don’t want to treat me like a Hot Dang Garbage Man
