From "Photographs From The Shoebox"

lyrics

(Words/music: The Dead Milkmen)

I've got a kid, his name is Scott
He's going blind and his blood just will not clot
The doctors line in rows
To stick tubes up Scotty's nose

There is the field
Where Scotty used to play
Until Ortho-Orange Number 42
Was dumped in it one day

I think it's so funny, I laugh until I cry
Just me and God, watching Scotty die
Just me and God, watching Scotty die

The chemical plant across the street
Leaves off steam that colors our white sheets
It's been happening for years
Now I'm crying rainbow tears

One day my dog went out to play
Instead of gray, he came back colored yellow
The chemical men said, "Stay mellow"
It happens all the time
Now Scotty's skin is lime

I think it's so funny, I laugh until I cry
Just me and God, watching Scotty die
Just me and God, watching Scotty die
