Keb' Mo' Lyrics


"Don’t Throw It Away"

Leo B. had big idea
Somethin’ that would last for a million years
You see, someday we will all disappear
But the big idea will still be here
You gotta use it again
Baby, don’t ya throw it away (Don’t ya throw it away)

Who could imagine everything it would bring
You can turn that plastic into any ol’ thing
It’s so convenient, you just can’t beat it
‘Til it gets into the ocean and the fish start to eat it
You gotta use it again
Baby, don’t ya throw it away (Don’t ya throw it away)

Well now a turtle can’t swim and a bird can’t sing
When they’re stuck in the hole of a six-pack ring
We got bottle and bags, caps and cups
We got too much stuff, we gotta clean it all up
You gotta use it again
Baby, don’t ya throw it away (Don’t ya throw it away)

Well the face of this planet, as far as I can see
It could use just a little plastic surgery

Leo didn’t know he was starting a mess
How it all turns out is anyone’s guess
I use it all the time, I must confess
But if I care a little more, I’ll use a little less
You gotta use it again
Baby, don’t ya throw it away (Don’t ya throw it away)
‘Cause it’s a beautiful world
Baby, don’t ya throw it away
