lyrics

(Schwartz)

Upstairs in the middle of my room
Lies a scrap of paper that you could consume
If you had to

Though I doubt that you picture it that way
Just a packet of instructions that you will not save
Though they helped you

Don’t give no thanks don’t say no word
Throw the paper away now with its duty served

And don’t say thank you
Mr. Paper, meet my friend
The garbage disposal service
He’ll take you away

Out back in my old playing yard
Lies a trinket that I would discard
If not for Mommy

But is is better that it’s here now?
Does it keep the same meaning all through the years?
I’m so forgetful

Don’t give no thanks don’t say no word
Won’t throw the trinket away now though its duty served

And don’t say thank you
Mr. Paper, meet my friend
The garbage disposal service
He’ll take you away

Thank you Mr. Paper, meet my friend
The garbage disposal service
He comes every Tuesday to my house
Then he goes where I won’t follow, no
Way down the road
To a dump I will never see
