Anne Z. and possibly another person captioned this picture "trash panda heading for the promised land", and suggested I write the song. Good idea, that. :D

lyrics

Hangin' off the back of a garbage van,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
Takin' my place in the heavenly plan,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.

Well, I’m a raccoon, and you know, I know
There’s a special place that I’ll get to go.
When my time is come I’m gonna make that jump
To that big truck headed for the city dump.

Hangin' off the back of a garbage van,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
Chicken McNuggets in my hand,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.

Can’t wait to see all my forest friends,
They’ll be nibblin’ on carrots and bread loaf ends
Rotisserie chicken bones, old Big Macs,
And dropped ice cream cones just for snacks.

Hangin' off the back of a garbage van,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
Saint Peter’s runnin’ the hot dog stand,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.

Pigeons and seagulls and street rats, too,
It’s an animal delinquent petting zoo.
There’s nothin’ to worry ‘bout, nothin’ to fear,
But we’d appreciate you bringin’ that sandwich here.

Hangin' off the back of a garbage van,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
No more fightin’ with a bag or a can,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.

Well, I’m goin’ there up on that mighty day,
Where the streets are paved with Chick-Fil-A.
They’ll be Five Guys waitin’ to take my hand,
And a kiss from Wendy in the promised land.

Hangin' off the back of a garbage van,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
Take my place in the heavenly plan,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.

Hangin' off the back of a garbage van,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
Take my place in the heavenly plan,
Trash panda headed for the promised land.
