  1. To the dark, dark seas

    Comes the only whale

    Watching ships go by

    It's the day we try

    It doesn't know, it's a Casio on a plastic beach

    It's a Casio on a plastic beach

    It's styrofoam deep sea landfill

    It's styrofoam deep sea landfill

    It's automated computer speech

    It's automated computer speech

    It's a Casio on a plastic beach

    It's a Casio

    Did they haul you out

    On a really hot day?

    When the call got made

    You've gone away

    It doesn't know, it's a Casio on a plastic beach

  2. Let's all of us create NEW jobs for folks to do cleanup and focus on getting companies/cruise lines and others to recycle to keep off the beaches and out of the water. WE CAN DO THIS. Jobs and new employment for everyone in every country.
