Sesame Street A Face lyrics album cover


Balladeer They called it Dirty Gulch, and this is how it got its name Everyone who chewed some gum or ate a candy bar
Would throw the wrapper on the ground and leave it lyin' thar
Citizens: Aye oo, Aye aa
The dirtiest town in the west
Ooh ooh ooh
Balladeer: Soon the people of the town all started turning mean.
They swore:
Citizens: This is the yuckiest place that I have ever seen!
(Man: This is terrible!)
Balladeer: But still they dropped their newspapers, (?), and rags.
Banana peels and pop-top tabs and empty paper bags.
Citizens: Aye oo, Aye aa
The dirtiest town in the west
Ooh ooh ooh
(A stranger comes riding into town on a horse.)
Balladeer: Then one day a marshal came a'ridin' o'er the hills.
He said:
Marshal: My name's McClean, and I am here to cure your ills!
Balladeer: Then from his mighty steed he jumped. He said:
McClean: I have a plan.
We'll pick the garbage off the ground and put it in a can.
Citizens: Aye oo, Aye aa
He's gonna put the trash in a can.
Ooh ooh ooh
Balladeer: The marshal pushed his sleeves up high and grabbed his trusty broom.
He said:
McClean: This trash is ugly, and it's unhealthy, too!
Balladeer: Soon the people of the town joined in and did the same.
And then the town of Dirty Gulch had to change its name.
Citizens: Aye oo, Aye aa
The cleanest town in the west
Ooh ooh ooh
(McClean: Okay, people, and I want you to keep this town this way. Don't forget!)
