Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – Solution For Pollution lyrics

The first thing I said this morning
It's nice to be alive
But at the rate we're going
How long can we survive

The first thing I saw this morning
Was polluted skies
Some people walking round
With tears in their eyes

What's the solution for pollution
Brain wash, mouthwash
Soda pop, Banana squash
All the money we got
A chicken in every pot

I went downtown at noontime
Meet my girl for lunch
There was people gathered round
All in a rush

Someone was making promises
That he would see us through
Raises the taxes a little higher
And I'll take care of you

[Repeat chorus]

All I want's to live in peace
Lord, a place to lay my head
And the freedom to roam this Earth
Until the day I'm dead

I want all the things for my kids
I'm not able to spare
The one more thing I wish for all of us
Is just a little too much fresh air

[Repeat chorus]
