LYRICS:

Sun Green started makin' waves
On the day her Grandpa died,
Speakin' out against anything
Unjust or packed with lies.

She chained herself to
    a statue of an eagle
In the lobby of Power Co.
And started yelling
    through a megaphone,
“There's corruption
    on the highest floor.”

Suits poured out of elevators.
    (“You're all dirty.”)
Phone-heads began to speak.
    (“You can't trust any of them.”)
Security couldn't get her down,
She was welded to the eagle's beak.

Sun Green leaned into that megaphone,
And said, “Truth is all I seek.”
Security brought in some blow torches.
News cameras recorded her speech.

“When the city is plunged into darkness
By an unpredicted rolling blackout
The White House always
    blames the governor,
Saying the solution is to pull him out.”

On top of that great bronze eagle
Sun's voice was loud and clear.
She said, “Power Co's working
    with the White House
To paralyze our state with fear.”

It was a golden moment
In the history of TV news.
No one could believe it
It just got great reviews.

“Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean."

The Imitators were playing
Down at John Lee's bar.
When Sun went down to see 'em
Someone followed her in a car.

Now when she goes dancin'
She has to watch her back.
The FBI just trashed her room
One of them kicked her cat.

Damn thing scratched his leg
So he had to shoot it dead.
And leave it lyin' in a puddle of blood
At the foot of Sun Green's bed.

“Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean."

John Lee's was rockin'.
The Imitators drove it home.
Sun was dancin' up a heat wave.
For awhile she was all alone.

When up walked a tall stranger,
Shadowed her move to move.
In perfect unison,
A supernatural groove.

He took her by the hand
And the room began to spin.
He said, “I'm Earth.  Earth Brown.
You know the shape I'm in."

“I'm leavin' tonight for Alaska
And I want you to come in the spring.
And be a goddess in the planet wars,
And try to save the living things.

“I'm ready to go right now,”
Sun Green told Earth Brown.
“Let's go back to my place,
Pick up my cat, and
    leave this town behind.”

“Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
"Hey, Mr. Clean."

Next day Sun Green was busted for pot
And it made the headline news.
But then the charges all got dropped
And the story gets confused.

She'd still like to meet Julia Butterfly
And see what remedy brings.
And be a goddess in the planet wars
And try to save the living things.

But that might not be easy
Livin' on the run.
Mother Earth has many enemies.
There's much work to be done.

“Hey, Mr. Clean, you're dirty now, too."
