The Lyrics

Cruising down the highway
It's just myself and I
Got a really big car
Cause I'm showing off
I don't have somewhere to go
My sole intention's to show
That I'm rolling in dough
To some folks I don't know

I've been cutting down trees
To light fires at night
Since I'm too close to broke
To pay for a flashlight

But I'll light a cigar
And the smoke is so thick
I don't turn off my car
Sometimes when I don't use it
The air I abuse it
And I don't know

Why I can't turn
Off the A.C.
When I am not home

Producing necessities
Like plastic accessories
Cause so much more harm than me
I know they're the ones to blame
For the acid in the rain
I think of their deeds and sigh
Cause I miss the night sky

Going out to stargaze
Because Mars should pass by
But I can't see a thing
Cause of all the smog
I'll throw out my telescope
Since there's not any hope
Of me seeing stars, nope
There is not any hope

Although the air is free
The clean kind is quite rare
The kind here makes me choke
I should move someplace where

Everything is pristine
Well it will be until
I start using machines
Since I would go insane, man
Living like a caveman
There is no

Way I could live
The clean air would go

I'd bring in for industry
Would produce necessities
Like plastic accessories
Progress is a natural force
I'd be free from blame of course
I would breathe and wheeze and sigh
And miss the night sky

Can't remember the original well enough to post a vote, but from what i've read this is impressive stuff. You've chosen a serious subject (pollution), and you've managed to incorporate humour into it. If I can get hold of the original version, i'll vote...

(ABC05) DKTOS. Your environmental message is quite clear (unlike the sy).

(I-05) Not really funny but well-written and a good wake up to pollution/environmental issues.

ABC--I know I totally dig the OS when I hear it...but for some reason, I cannot summon it out of my brain...=( Sorry...

(ABC) I remember in The Simpsons, Lisa was trying to see the night sky thru her telescope but the concert lights from a stadium gave off light pollution ("Thanks, surviving Beach Boys!") Well done. Tri-Fives.

(ABC) My wife studied astronomy in college and loves to be able to star-gaze when we are far, far away from city lights, so I understand this parody's sentiment, Ethan.

(ABC) DKTOS. Well written commentary there...

(I) DNKOS, but heartfelt message. Reminds me why I camp at 10,000 feet in Colorado every summer. The stars are so close you can almost touch them.
