(For A World)

w & m John D Loudermilk
1965 Acuff-Rose publ.co.
as sung by Sue Thompson

A paper pack of sugar, a plastic spoon and knife
A paper cup, a paper plate
A dif'rent boy each night

I'm gettin' tired of a paper and a plastic world
One that's not a lasting world
That's how I feel
I'm looking for a silver and a crystal world
Not an artificial world, but one that is real

Shiny plastic flowers, 'lectronic steeple chimes
Seem to be becoming the symbols of our times
But I'm looking for
A simple, sandy suntan world
Not a handy sunlamp world, but one that is true
I'm searching for the kind of honest joy
That I'll find in a boy
Like you
