Does Elvis Really Hate Waste Imports?

The NO WASTE research staff was locked up in the laboratory late one night doing some quantitative analysis of some strange Canadian liquids in containers with labels such as "Molsens," "Labatts," etc. The staff, with impeccably current tastes in music, was listening to a scratchy old Elvis record when the song "Return to Sender" came through the speaker. Now, I'll bet you thought the song was about returning a love letter, but the staff didn't hear it that way that night. Fortunately, Research Manager Beavis grabbed a pen and transcribed what he heard:

RETURN TO SENDER

I wrote a letter this morning
Sent it special D
Addressed it to Toronto
It said you better listen to me.

I wrote upon it...

Return to sender
Address unknown
Don't want your trash here,
So keep it home.

No need to quarrel
No need to have a spat
But if Canada sends us its trash,
We'll just sent it back.

Send us bacon and hockey
Beer and curling, too
But if you send us your garbage,
We'll send it right back to you.

And write upon it...

Return to sender
Address unknown
Don't want your trash here,
So keep it home.

No need to quarrel
No need to have a spat.
But if Canada sends us its trash,
We'll just send it back.

Now Toronto, don't worry
Here's what you need to do.
Reduce, reuse, and recycle.
That's our advice to you.

Return to sender
Address unknown
Don't want your trash here,
So keep it home.

Repeat chorus

So the answer is YES, Elvis does hate waste imports!
