Green plastic watering can
In the fake plastic earth
She bought from a rubber man
Town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself
Wears her out
Wears her out
Wears her out
Wears her out
She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
Used to to surgery
For girls for girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins
Wears him out
Wears him out
Wears him out
She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
Can't fight the feeling no
Could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run
Wears me out
Wears me out
Wears me out
Wears me out
If I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted all the time all the time
