America Sucks.

Plastic people
You gotta go
(Ya ya ya ya ya ya)

Plastic people
You gotta go

Fine little girl
She waits for me
She's as plastic
As she can be
She paints her face
With plastic goo
And wrecks her hair
With some shampoo

Plastic people
You gotta go
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Plastic people
You gotta go

Take a day
And walk around
Watch the nazis
Run your town
Then go home
And check yourself
You think we're singing
'Bout someone else . . . but you're

Plastic people
You gotta go

Plastic people
You gotta go

This is the rock & roll part of the song
Baby, baby, baby

Me see a neon
Moon above
I searched for years
And found no love
I'm sure that love
Will never be
A product of
Plasticity

Plastic people
You gotta go

Plastic people
You gotta go
I said
You gotta go
You gotta go . . .
You gotta go
Bye-bye, bye-bye
You gotta go
You gotta go . . .

FZ: (King Kong . . . Kong . . . )
