"OSCARs JUNK Band" was performed by OSCAR THE GROUCH & his JUNK Band. The song was performed when Bob was about to throw out an old broom handle, till OSCAR rescues it for his washtub bass, leading to a song about recycling. Bob compliments their environmental message, but OSCAR simply tells him he does not care.










LyricsEdit

OSCAR:
I know a lot of folks who are extremely loyal
To a banjo or a nice guitar
But I prefer a greasy can of olive oil
With a broken broom handle by far
Some people think the sound of a trombone's divine
But I think wet paper & a comb are fine
So blow the soda bottle, let the soup cans crash
Cause 1 guys treasure is another guys TRASH

OSCARs JUNK Band:
In OSCARs JUNK Band, OSCARs JUNK Band
Stamp your MUDDY feet & clap your DIRTY hands
Were gonna play the JUNKiest tune you can stand
Come on & hear OSCARs JUNK Band

OSCAR:
Some music fans appreciate the pedal steel
Or a clarinet or violin
But me I LOVE the sound of dried up orange peel
When you shake it in a sardine tin
You keep your tuba give me paper tubes to play
Don't want a glockenspiel, I want an ice-cube tray
We like it rusty, dusty, busted, bent or old
Cause 1 gals GARBAGE is another gals gold

OSCARs JUNK Band:
In OSCARs JUNK Band, OSCARs JUNK Band
Stamp your MUDDY feet & clap your DIRTY hands
Were gonna play the JUNKiest tune you can stand
Come on & hear OSCARs JUNK Band

OSCARs JUNK Band:
Were OSCARs JUNK Band, OSCARs JUNK Band
Stamp your MUDDY feet & clap your DIRTY hands
Were gonna play the JUNKiest tune you can stand
Come on & hear OSCARs JUNK Band
Come on & hear OSCARs JUNK Band, oh yeah!
Come on & hear OSCARs JUNK Band
