Plastic Spoon

[TTTO “Paper Moon”, Seanan McGuire]

I like to cook, not eat down in the mall
I don’t want to eat in the dirty bars
But washing dishes is just not my goal
Wait I think I hear something — it’s her car
But that doesn’t mean that I’ll stop for good
If I can get away with it, I surely would
So tell my lover, it’s not ending soon,
Because I’m stirring tea using a plastic spoon

I don’t want to live by another’s rules
I’m not just gonna change, no matter how you sneer
Your boundaries seem to not much like my tools
But there ain’t no way that I’m stopping, dear
But just because she gets her way,
It doesn’t mean I won’t go back some day
So tell my lover, it’s not ending soon,
Because I have some rice and a plastic spoon

[Chorus]
Plastic spoons and paper bowls
Paper towels, rolls and rolls
Though the dinner looks like it’s in a mall
I won’t wash dishes, that’s my goal

I do the dishes when she says “goodbye”
I like paper towells, so I’ll take my chance
To dry the dishes with a good 2-ply
I do not really care if some will look askance
Though I’m somewhere off the beaten track,
I can guarantee that I won’t go back.
So tell my lover, it’s not ending soon…
I need to eat the soup with a plastic spoon

[Chorus]

I like to cook, not eat down in the mall
I don’t want to eat in the dirty bars
But washing dishes is just not my goal
Wait I think I hear something — it’s her car
But that doesn’t mean I’ll stop for good
If I could get away with it, I surely would
So tell my lover if she won’t come soon,
I will eat my soup with a plastic spoon,
I’ll consume the rice with a plastic spoon
She won’t see me using a plastic spoon

[Chorus]

Give me plastic spoons and paper bowls,
Paper towels, rolls and rolls
