Paper Mache
Rita Calypso(리타 칼립소) Lyrics


Twenty houses in a row
eighty people watch a TV show
paper people, cardboard dreams
how unreal the whole thing seems

Can we be living in a world
made of paper mache
everything is clean and so neat
anything that's wrong
can be just swept away
spray it with cologne
and the whole world smells sweet

Ice-cream cones and candy bars
swings and things like bicycles and cars
there is a sale on happiness
you buy two and it costs less

Can we be living in a world
made of paper mache
everything is clean and so neat
anything that's wrong
can be just swept away
spray it with cologne
and the whole world smells sweet

Read the papers keep aware
While you're lounging in your leather chair
And if things don't look so good
shake your head and knock on wood

Can we be living in a world
made of paper mache
everything is clean and so neat
anything that's wrong
can be just swept away
spray it with cologne
and the whole world smells sweet

Like paper mache

My mom used to play this on the car radio when I was young. I just found it, sounds as great as it did 16 years ago!

I listened to this 54 years ago.

Hermosa canción, una de mis preferidas en la voz de mi admirada Ana Laan

Nice to hear a new version of this underated Burt Bacharach and Hal David song. Outside of Dionne Warwick I think only Rita Reys has sung it on disc, although there are a few instrumental versions out there by the likes of Frank Chacksfield and Ronnie Aldrich.
