Lyrics of 'The Buggles – Living In The Plastic Age'

Everyday my met­al friend
Shakes my bed at 6 AM
Then the shiny ser­vant clones
Run in with my telephones

Talking fast I′ll make a deal
Buy the fake and sell what's real
Oh what′s this pain here in my chest?
Maybe I should take a rest

They send the heart police
To put you under car­di­ac arrest
And as they drag you through the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the…

Living in the plastic age
Looking only half my age
Hello Doctor, lift my face
I wish my skin could stand the pace

In my bed I read my mind
Remember how the mice were blind
I watched them fight­ing in their cage
Could this be the plastic age?

They send the heart police
To put you under car­di­ac arrest
And as they drag you through the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the…

Plastic age!
Plastic age!
Plastic age!

They send the heart police
To put you under car­di­ac arrest
And as they drag you through the door
They tell you that you′ve failed the test

Living in the…

Plastic age!
Plastic age!
Plastic age!
