"Trash Monster"

Songwriters - Monty Harper & Will Rogers Elementary School 4th & 5th Graders

This song was created during a Monty Harper songwriting residency at Will Rogers Elementary School in Stillwater, Oklahoma in February 2013.

Trash Monster grew from trash
Things we all threw away
Trash Monster towers 110 feet high!
Trash Monster hurts the Earth
With heat, floods, famines and storms
Trash Monster makes us sick and he needs to die!

Mother Nature’s in trouble
Trash Monster’s a curse
Everybody recycle
Or it’s gonna get worse

Trash Monster grows and grows
Every time we feed him trash
Plastic bags, bottles, and cans are at his command!
Mother Nature’s on the run
From Trash Monster’s evil plan
It’s a trash tornado and it’s filling up the oceans and land!

Mother Nature’s in trouble
Trash Monster’s a curse
Everybody recycle
Or it’s gonna get worse

Kids know whenever we throw out less trash
And we recycle instead
Trash Monster shrinks just a little bit more
Together we’ll recycle him dead!

Mother Nature’s in trouble
Trash Monster’s a curse
Everybody recycle
Or it’s gonna get worse
Everybody recycle
Or it’s gonna get worse
Trash Monster’s a curse
