I wanted to write a playful children’s song, inspired by a Woody Guthrie vibe. I imagine Woody and Oscar the Grouch singing it together.
(Chorus) Treasure Trash, it’s everywhere. Treasure Trash, we all can share…
People throwing things on the street
We’re kicking gold with our feet
The things that we throw away
We all know they’re here to stay
Paper, Plastic, Wood, and Metal
Styrofoam.. and all these chemicals
If you’re wondering what to do with these things
Just throw it in the right bin
Don’t throw away what you just ate
In the same place you dumped the paint
treasure trash, we can use it again
but only if it’s in the right place
We can fix things that are broken, with treasure trash and some imagination
we can have a beautiful world with treasure trash.. you can build your own stash when you don’t spend money using treasure trash.
