"Paper Planes" as written by and Emanuel Fredrik Lundgren....
Surrounded by strangers
Their sounds and their changes

There's a big old man
In his underpants
He plays the clarinet every night
And trying hard to figure it out

In the flat above
They are making love
I guess they'll have a beautiful son
Practicing as much as they've done

Paper planes
Folding paper planes
Throwing paper planes
To clear my head

In the flat below
There's the Cosby show
And Theodor is screaming at Bill
Claire is mad and Ruby is ill

There's a cat out there
Running everywhere
Chasing all the girls in the park
I wish that I could see in the dark

Paper planes
Folding paper planes
Throwing paper planes
To clear my head

Paper planes
Folding paper planes
Throwing paper planes
And go to bed

I'm surrounded by strangers
Their sounds and their changes
I'm surrounded by strangers
Their sounds and their changes

    General Comment I love this song. And it makes me laugh that they call the Huxtible family's youngest child Ruby and Rudy. I wonder if the name was changed to Ruby for the dubbed over version in non-English speaking countries!

    General CommentLove this song! I can totally relate to sitting quietly in your apartment and hearing the rest of the world around you and unintentionally eavesdropping on the neighbors you don't really know. Also, I laughed at the Ruby/Rudy thing when I first heard it, too. :)
