Bobs – Plastic Or Paper lyrics

I got a bunch of bananas and a bottle of bleach
Five cans of cat food, a chicken, and a peach
I had enough trouble picking out all this food
I can't stand decisions, I think it's so rude
That you ask me if I want Plastic or Paper

I don't know... Just a bag!
Oh, plastic sounds ok, just put in a bag
And let me go home
Or, well, maybe paper's better... I don't know how
To make a decision about this...

Well, then the clerk, he says to me:
"Mr. Consumer, please pause to reflect
The choice that you make can have a global effect
On lumberjacks and turtles, politicians and fish
Would you like a paper bag, is that your wish?
On the other hand I offer a bag that won't leak
And besides, it's got handles! "

Well, ok, give me a plastic bag,
Make it a plastic one
Ooooh, no, maybe I'll have... Maybe...
Maybe a Paper Bag!
Yeah, it's such a big decision, I've got a bunch of a bananas
And a bottle of bleach,
And what am I gonna put it in...?
Plastic or paper
Plastic or paper
