lyrics

I see you walking, girl, on that path down by the river,
With a black garbage bag clenched in your pretty fists.
It’s such a heavy load for such a little lady.
We love your kind down here, my love, we love your kind down here.

You’re kicking off your shoes and taking off your dress now.
One step into the lake and your gooseflesh starts to show.
And then, in a flash, you and that bag go under.
We love your kind down here, my love, we love your kind down here.

I’ve never known someone to hold their breath for half an hour.
Just us bottom feeders know exactly what you did down there.
And then like a toad, you spring out of the water.
We love your kind down here, my love, we love your kind down here.

You look much happier now that your load is lifted.
A big grin on your face, and a new spring in your step.
But wasn’t it your husband’s turn to take out the garbage?
We love your kind down here, my love, we love your kind down here.
