Plastic Jesus
The Flaming Lips Lyrics

I don't care if it rains or freezes
Long as I got my plastic Jesus
Sittin' on the dashboard of my car
Comes in colors, pink and pleasant
Glows in the dark, it's iridescent
Take it with you when you travel far

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestone, settin' on a
Pedestal of Abalone Shells
Goin' 90, I ain't scared
'Cause I got the Virgin Mary
Assuring me that I won't go to hell

One of the most soothing yet eeriest songs I’ve ever heard


Much respect to the FL! awesome !!

Keelan Gibson

It's hard to rival Paul Newman
But this gets close....


This always reminds me of that King Crimson song, The Great Deceiver. Both the songs were probably written with a very similar image in mind.
As the Crimson song goes, "Cigarettes, ice cream, figurines of the Virgin Mary".
Check them out if you haven't yet - they have been a huge influence for most modern psychedelic and progressive bands, such as the Lips.


It’s a cover song. It’s a folk country song from the 50’s.

Crimson is the greatest. .obsessed ...swallowed all their music ... john Weston was a genius...all of the incarnations...going to see them again in 2019..seen em in 2017 in jersey

For anyone who doesn't know, this song is featured in a movie from 1967 called "Cool Hand Luke" and has been around a really long time before the Flaming Lips covered it.
