Bee Gees - Paper Mache, Cabbages & Kings Lyrics




Na na na na na na na na na
Paper mache and telegraph poles
Things go dead in the night
Make enough noise to make enough noise
to make you want to jump with fright
Elephant's tusks and autograph books ,people you don't meet
Haven't got a bed to lay my head , shoes to fit my feet

Don't be scared
You're better off then nothing
You're answering to no one
Paper mache

Paper mache and telegraph poles
Thing go dead in the night
Make enough noise to make enough noise
to make you want to jump with fright
Elephant's tusks and autograph books, people you don't meet
Haven't got a bed to lay my head, shoes to fit my feet

Don't be scared
You're better off then nothing
You're answering to no one
Paper mache

All of a sudden it happened
When you did what you said you'd do
And you broke my heart in two
Like paper mache
All of a sudden it happened, oh...
You came into my life
Like paper mache you broke my heart
Like paper mache, paper mache
Like paper mache

Paper mache and telegraph poles
Things go dead in the night
Make enough noise to make enough noise
to make you wanna jump with fright
Elephant's tusks and autograph books
People you don't meet

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Jimmy had a bomb and the bomb went bang
Jimmy was everywhere

Jimmy had a bomb and the bomb went bang
Jimmy was everywhere

[repeat last two lines and fade out]

    What is Paper Mache,?

    Mark Reid

    It's moldable paper and plaster.

  6. David Hitztaler

    Barry.... Maurice.... Robin.....love it....!!!

  7. Daniel Micheli

    Every time that Robin from the tops of his lungs it reminds me of Roger Daltrey. Superb singers, both of them...

    kurtmorr

    I must confess that I'm not a fan of Robin's singing when he tries to belt out (force out) those notes, I'd prefer he just crescendo a bit at his normal voice.

    Martin Peters

    It's exactly what I came here to hear.....

  8. musisKat

    Supposedly the only hit on this album was "Run to Me", but I think this one is pretty good too.

    Robin Willoughby

    Sweet song of summer was great also,but this whole album is great

  9. Broeddenhert

    RIP Jimmy
