about

Inspired by Max Temkin’s ‘Plastic Spoon’ artwork (www.maxistentialism.com/about/) The album artwork is his poster (a bit squished as it's a rectangular poster in a square space) - check out his website!

And didn't the world need an environmental sea-shanty about plastic spoons?

lyrics

SPOON

This spoon is dirty, oh what shall I do?
(You could wash the damn spoon!)
I’ll make me another that’s shiny and new
(Or you could wash the damn spoon!)

Wash the damn spoon, wash the damn spoon
Or you could wash the damn spoon!

Dig me a well that goes all the way down...
That’s where the black stuff is generally found...
Bring it ashore in a jolly big boat...
If she should founder the oil will float...

Wash the damn spoon, wash the damn spoon
Or you could wash the damn spoon!

Get it refined so it knows to behave...
Mould it and melt it to the shape that I crave...
Pack it in boxes with ten thousand more...
Drive for a week to they get to the store...

Wash the damn spoon, wash the damn spoon
Or you could wash the damn spoon!

Ring up the price that it says on the tag...
Carry it home in a nice plastic bag...
Takeaway chicken and noodles for two...
Now my spoon’s dirty and what shall I do?

Wash the damn spoon, wash the damn spoon
Or you could wash the damn spoon!
