If I were Jenny Appleseed,
In this day and time,
I'd have a special job to do,
And this would be mine.
I'd get a great big loading truck
To carry such a load,
And I'd travel through this country
On ev'ry travelled road.
Watch what you're doing,
Please watch what you do,
I can't go on forever
Picking up after you.

I'd pick up every bottle,
I'd pick up every tin,
I'd pick up every carton
And I'd pile them all in.
From every bit of countryside
So green and so fine,
I'd pick up all the clutter left
By my human kind.

And when it was a mountain high
And all it could hold,
I'd paint a sign upon the sides
In letters big and bold:
"Oh all you jolly eaters
Of canned chicken stew,
You soda pop drinkers,
You beer drinkers, too,
Please watch what you're doing,
Please watch what you do,
I can't go on forever
Picking up after you."
