Lyrics

Plastic Spoons & Paper Plates

VERSE I
Oh so young and Naïve
that?s what her daddy said to me
No one thought this union would last

80 dollars to my name
When we tied the knot that day
We were in love and just knew love would last (we had)

CHORUS
Plastic spoons and paper plates
bowed our heads when we said grace
Drank drug store wine from Dixie cups
A simple life?. Mixed up with love

All our luxuries
Were always found in the you and me
You and me??.. with Plastic Spoons & Paper Plates

Last time
Ah we mixed it up, a simple life, mixed it with love
We had Plastic Spoons & Paper Plates mixed sweetly with love


VERSE II
Became a father overnight
My sweet daughter had her mama?s eyes
Worked a blue collar job and sometimes one at night

Months and years slipped away
But memories still resonate
When I reflect back on that early life (with)

VERSE III
On our front porch I gazed one night
Weighed down from daily life
My young bride of 20 years said come inside? its supper time

With a kiss she reminded me
That each other is all we need
Then led me to a feast and to my delight (we ate with)
