No such thing as waste

When I was a little kid
I liked to catch the rain
While my friends around the town
let it flow right down the drain

But our tiny house in the trees
Had one thing that we drank
Every drop that we had saved
In our rainwater tank

Cos there's no such thing as waste
Only stuff in the wrong place
No there's no such thing as waste
When we treasure every trace

Moved to the city, rented a house
On my way to buy a bed
Saw one lying on the side of the road
So I took that one instead
And I also found a fridge, a couch
And a big old sewing machine
In the biggest pile of thrown-out stuff
That I had ever seen

But there's no such thing as waste
Only stuff in the wrong place
No there's no such thing as waste
Better save it just in case

Well, we've gotta refuse, reduce, reuse, repair then renew
Refuse, reduce, reuse, repair then renew

You can get cool things out of the bin
You can compost every crumb,
Save all the seeds, eat garden weeds
and give the rest back to your mum

It's time we thunk about all our junk
to keep our planet clean
That W word is so absurd
In a world of blue and green.

But there's no such thing as waste
Only stuff in the wrong place
No there's no such thing as waste
Only opportunity to be embraced
