I Think You Dropped This

By Susan Salidor

in Little Voices in My Head by Susan Salidor



I live in the city and I like what it's got

Parks, museums and people -- there's really a lot

But we've got a lot of garbage, it's sad but true

I don't want to be a litterbug, how about you?



I think you dropped this! Oh yeah you dropped this!

I saw it slip right out of your hand

Oh yes you dropped this

You know you dropped this

Right over there is a garbage can.


My mom and I find garbage around

In front of the house, on the ground

We can't understand why people people would throw

Their banana peels and chip bags on the bright clean snow?




Sometimes when I'm out walking the town

Hanging with friends, playing around

We see people enjoying a snack

But afterwards they leave a mess -- A LITTERBUG ATTACK!




So when you go walking down the street

And your friend gives you some gum to eat

Chew the gum, enjoy the treat

But throw the wrapper in the can and not in the street!


Chorus until last line, then:

Right over there is a garbage can.

We've got to do whatever we can.

So be smart and use a garbage can!
