Song Lyrics:
Well, a little bitty termite, he come a-knockin'
Knockin' on my front door
Well, he walked right in, sat right down,
And started nibblin' on the kitchen floor
Well, he chewed on the walls, on the ceilings and the halls...
Lord knows he tried
But he kept gettin' thinner; never got no dinner
Finally, he sat up and cried

He said, "It's plastic!
I know it's plastic!
Well, you know, it ain't no wood
And it can't do me no good
Because it's plastic!
I said, it's plastic!"
Everything's gonna be plastic by and by!

Well now, early one day in the month of May
I went down to the beach
There were cuties and beauties in little bathin' suities
And all of them within my reach
Now a 38-24-36 miss just happened to be walkin' my way
I said, "Please don't think me nervy but you look so very curvy
Tell me how you got that way"

She said, "It's plastic!
Oh, yes, it's plastic!
It's as pretty as can be,
But you know that it ain't me
Because it's plastic!
I said, it's plastic!"
Everything's gonna be plastic by and by!

They say that, someday soon, we'll have a plastic moon
Shining through the plastic trees
There'll be plastic ladies with plastic babies
Bouncin' on their plastic knees
Now, you may not agree that it's all gonna be
And this record may make you sore
But if you have a desire to throw it in the fire
Or smash it down on the floor...

Remember, it's plastic!
I say, it's plastic!
Now, you can boil it, fry it or bake it...
Yeah, you know you just can't break it!
Because it's plastic!
You know it's plastic!
Everything's gonna be plastic by and by!
