Plastic Factory lyrics

[alert_box type=”info”]Originally appeared on Safe As Milk[/alert_box]

Phos’phrous chimney burnin’
Mortal man’s a’ learnin’
Time n’ space a’ turnin’
Motor’s n’ men a’ churnin’
fac’trys no place f’ me
boss man, let me be

Wind n’ waves a’ blowin’
Mountain ‘n sky a’ showin’
Bee n’ flower growin’
Boy n’ girl a’ glowin’
fac’trys no place f’ me
boss man let me be

Mind n’ sight a’ goin’
Muscle n’ bone a’ showin”
One thing sure I’m knowin’
Get a fire goin’

fact’ry’s no place for me
boss man let me be
boss man let me be
boss man leave me be

(1967)
