2. It makes me mad

People walk down the street and drop litter at your feet

Everybody throws away things they bought yesterday

Don’t worry about the waste from your factory

You can throw it into the sea

It makes me mad, it makes me angry

When I think of all the things that we could do

To make the world a better place for the human race

City streets are full of cars trying to find a place to park

And juggernauts with heavy loads drive along our country roads

They’ve got to get there today

So let’s build another motorway

It makes me mad, it makes me angry

When I think of all the things that we could do

To make the world a better place for the human race

To make the world a better place for the human race

World a better place …

 Words and tune by Ken Wilson

Musical arrangement and instrumentation by Richard Vranch

Vocals and lead guitar: Matthew Devitt

 This is a topic-based song, which highlights two environmental problems – waste and traffic/road building.

Key vocabulary – litter, waste, juggernaut.

The word juggernaut can refer to a powerful force, but also to a large heavy vehicle, especially an articulated lorry, which is the case here.
