"Cartoon World" as written by Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul David Hewson and Larry Mullen....
Mr Bourke is off to work
He carries papers in his carrier bag
Mr Postman takes his bag back
Those angry dogs, those angry dogs

It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world

Mrs Brown is off to town
She carries shopping in her shopping bag
Mr Brown is working hard
For some degree at university

It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It really is
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world

Uncle Tony hates a drag
He didn't give me a lot of time, dear
Jack and Jill go up the hill
They dropped some acid and popped some pills

It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon world
It's a cartoon

    General CommentI don't know if it's an original U2 song, but this was performed live before 1980, maybe afterwards (an't say). It appeared on the disc II on the remastered "Boy".

    About the meaning, I think it's about everyday life.
