New Lyrics: Goosepond Wasteland



Goosepond Wasteland
Parody of The Who’s song, Baba O’Riley (Teenage Wasteland)
by, Melissa R. Mendelson

Out here in the Goosepond,
The water is really green.
I stick my head in, diving deep.
My wings won’t take flight.
My legs are glued tight.
I feel like I am sinking.

The town won’t break the algae apart.
All this green is breaking my heart.
The land we’re forced upon.
At least there, we could enjoy the sun.

You walk by.
Don’t even bat an eye.
It’s only Goosepond wasteland.

If only I could sue,
But geese don’t know what to do.
It’s just another ordinary day.
Even the fish don’t won’t to stay,
But the algae remains.
Won’t you do something, please?

Hey you!
Don’t walk your mile.
My flock,
Don’t give me a smile.
Look down
At the water surrounding me.
We have nowhere to go.
We are at your mercy.

You walk by.
Don’t even bat an eye.
It’s only Goosepond wasteland.

The kids are laughing, chasing us.
We hiss and make a fuss.
We can’t stand on the land for too long.
All this algae is why we’re singing this song.

Won’t you take a stand?
Don’t you understand?
The grass isn’t greener,
And the streets are getting meaner.
Things are getting worse.
This algae is ready to burst.
This is our home.
We can’t do this on our own.

Goosepond wasteland
Goosepond wasteland
Goosepond wasteland
It’s only Goosepond wasteland
Goosepond wasteland
It’s only Goosepond wasteland
Goosepond wasteland
It’s only Goosepond wasteland
Time’s a wasting!
