It's A Funny Business


Street Sweeping Parody Song #2

by giblet o'sarcasm

Editor's Note: I found this on a song parody website called amiright.com, which is dedicated to archiving parodies of well-known songs and lyrics that are commonly mis-heard. Here's what one parody lyricist had to offer about a street sweeper.

"Street Sweeper" Parody by giblet o'sarcasm is based on, and intended to be sung to the music of, the song "Dream Weaver" by Gary Wright

A 'tribute' to the unsung heroes of our cities, who work late at night to keep our streets looking good.

(MUSICAL INTRO, STREET SWEEPER SOUNDS)

I just plug my ears at night
Trying to block the street sweeper noise
Windows are useless against that rumbling hum
Louder than my neighbor's toys

CHORUS: Ooh Ooh Street Sweeper
Can't believe how you sweep our streets so clean
But Street Sweeper
I wish you drove a quieter machine

Working late beneath the starry skies
Brushing up the asphalt plain
Rattling my windows and nerves each night
Driving all of my pets insane

CHORUS: (REPEAT)

Gone forever the good old days
When street sweepers used brooms
If the lesser of two evils I could choose
I'd rather hear sonic booms

Ooh Ooh, Street Sweeper
Can't believe how you sweep our streets so clean
But I'm a light sleeper
Can't they give you a quieter machine

Street Sweeper
Street Sweeper....(echo and fade)

(CLOSING MUSIC, STREET SWEEPER SOUNDS)
