Paper or plastic lyrics

Kurt: Roaming the aisles

Looking for smiles all day long

Little kids shove me

Hear how I squeal with my wobbly wheels

How could anyone love me

Carrie: I'm a soup of tomato

Not a potato

I'm a delicate type

I'm red and I'm plump

With a dent in my rump

How long could I ever stay ripe

Kurt: Now that I found you

My love will surround you

Carrie: I know I never grow

Kurt: It's very fantastic

Both: Paper or plastic

Together we found a new home
