It's A Funny Business


Street Sweeping Parody Song #1

by Ranger Kidwell-Ross

Editor's Note: I originally wrote this for a performance at Schwarze's Roundup 2000. Here I offer an adapted version made more generic to street sweeping in general.

"Sweepin' With Style" parody by Ranger Kidwell-Ross is based on, and intended to be sung to the music of, the song "Born to be Wild" by Steppenwolf

Sweepin' With Style

8 measure instrumental introduction

Verse #1:
Get your sweeper runnin', on parking lots or highways.
Get it on the curbside, pickup whatever comes your way.

Pre-Chorus 1:
Street sweepers make it happen,
Sweep the world, take the dirt away.
We sweep debris all up at once and,
then we cart it awaaaaayyy.

Goes right into:

Verse #2: Sweepers are the best way,
to keep your highways hummin'.
Put that sweeping head down,
suck up everything that's under.

Pre-Chorus 1 Repeat:
Street sweepers make it happen, Sweep the world, take the dirt away.
We sweep debris all up at once and,
then we cart it awaaaaayyy.

Pre-Chorus 2:
Street sweepers have style,
we can run them many miles.
With suction power so high,
any surface they can plyyyyyy.

Chorus: Sweeeee--ping with styyyyyle.
Drums: bump bada dump bada dump bada dump
Sweeeee--ping with styyyyyle.
