Mother: Soups on! Come and get it! Dinner everyone! The Table is set and the foods about done. Dad: Where’s Danny? Melissa: Up in the shower. Dad: He’s been in that shower for almost an hour. Billy: Taking long showers wastes water yes indeed. A five minute shower is all you really need. You’ll have to pay the piper, somewhere down the road for this over, over, over, over, OVER, OVER-LOAD.
Danny: Here I am gang! I’m sorry I’m late. Come on Mom how about some chow on this plate? Dad: What’s this noise I’m hearing? Sounds like some far off rhyme Melissa: Danny left the T.V. on, he does it all the time Danny: Look who’s talking huh I’m not the only one who’s wrong! Melissa left the lights on in the bathroom all night long Billy: Never turning lights off and leaving on TV is a downright flagrant waste of electricity. You’ll have to pay the piper somewhere down the road, For this over, over, over, over, OVER, OVER-LOAD!
Melissa: Put a muzzle on it genius, who’re you tryin’ to be? the world’s youngest expert on saving energy? Danny: Uh oh! Something’s burning! Can you smell it, Dad? Dad: It’s coming from the oven, and smelling pretty bad! Mother: Oh no! The phone’s been ringing, I was racing all about. I forgot to shut the oven off and take the pizza out! Melissa: Never mind, Mom, we really don’t mind. Charbroiled pizza’s our favorite kind.
Billy: When you leave the oven on hour after hour, you’re wasting lots of energy not to mention power. You’ll have to pay the piper, somewhere down the road, for this over, over, over, over, OVER, OVER-LOAD! Melissa: Let’s skip dinner and go right to dessert Mother: I guess for one night it’s not gonna hurt. Dan, go to the freezer and bring the ice cream here. Dan: All right! Melissa: Sounds great! Billy: What a good idea!
Danny: Someone left the freezer door open just a hair. The ice-cream’s turned to mush and now there’s water everywhere. Billy: This family’s really hopeless, as hopeless as can be. I’m afraid you all get F’s in saving energy. Dad: I guess you’re right, at ecology we fail. We’ll just go out to dinner, but first let me check the mail. Garbage, advertisement…What’s this I may be ill! Mother: What is it dear? Dad: It’s the electric bill!
All: It’s time to pay the piper, he’s collecting what he’s owed, for this over, over, over, over, OVER, OVER- LOAD!!!!!!!!!!
