Why don't you wake me
(Yeah) shake me (yeah)
Don't let me sleep too late, no
Gotta get up in the morning
About a quarter to eight

(Don't you know I'm bound)
I'm bound to my job (my boss)
My boss is a big, fat slob
Can't even be a minute late
Or the boss will blow his gate

(Why don't you) wake me
(Yeah) shake me (yeah)
Don't let me sleep too late
Oh, gotta get up in a minute
About a quarter to eight

(Don't you know I'm bound)
I'm bound to my garbage truck
(I got a lot) got a lot
Of cans to pick up
Can't even be a minute late
Or the boss will blow his gate

(Why don't you)
Wake me, shake me
Gotta get up in the morning time
About a quarter to eight

I had a dream (had a dream)
I had a dream (had a dream)
I said I looked over yonder
What did I see
I said two big garbage trucks
I said coming after me

Picking up trash
I said side by side
Why don't you swing down
Sweet garbage truck and
Let your buddy ride

Wake me (yeah) shake me (yeah)
Don't let me sleep too late, no
Gotta get up in the morning
About a quarter to eight

(Don't you know I'm bound)
I'm bound to my job (my boss)
My boss is a big, fat slob
Can't even be a minute late
Or the boss will blow his gate

(Why don't you)
Wake me, shake me
Gotta get up in the morning time
About a quarter to eight

(Why don't you)
Wake me, shake me
Gotta get up in the morning time
About a quarter to eight...
