Today was booster shot day, so my Buddy and I got to enjoy a rare morning nap. It was during this nap that I became inspired to write a song to my Trash Man, in honor of his service.
To the tune of Mr. Sandman, I give you Mr. Trashman
Mr. Trashman, you ruined my dream
Family nap until you came on the scene
You hopped the curb, ran over the clover
Hit the recycling bin- know it’s all over!
Mr. Trashman… I know it’s hard
A stinky job, no matter whose yard
Please turn off your bright high-beams
The baby just let out a big scream!
Mr. Trashman, (Yeeeees?) I need you so
But you’re so loud I cringe ‘til you go
Your truck is louder than thunder and lightning
Thinking you hit the house is very frightening!
Mr. Trashman, I’m all alone
Stay-at-home Mom cleaning up all alone
Thank you for taking the stinky diapers away
But if you make a mess, can you please, please stay?
Mr. Trashman, thanks for all you do
Without your help, I’d be in a stew
Though shortened nap- times make it tough
No mother ever sleeps enough!
