A A/G# A/G D(Riff 1)
A man lives at the corner of the street,
A A/G# A/G D(Riff 1)
And his neighbors think he's helpful and he's sweet,
D7(riff 2) G G/F# E
'Cause he never swears and he always shakes you by the hand,
A A/G# A/G D(riff 3)
But no one knows he really is a........plastic man.
A A/G# A/G D(Riff 4)
He's got plastic heart, plastic teeth and toes,
He's got plastic knees and a perfect plastic nose.
He's got plastic lips that hide his plastic teeth and gums,
And plastic legs that reach up to his.......plastic bum.


[D]Plastic [C]man [G]got no [D]brain,

He's got plastic flowers growing up the walls,
He eats plastic food with a plastic knife and fork,
He likes plastic cups and saucers 'cause they never break,
And he likes to lick his gravy off.......a plastic plate.
He's got a plastic wife who wears a plastic mac,
And his children wanna be plastic like their dad,
He's got a phoney smile that makes you think he understands,
But no one ever gets the truth from .....
