"Paper Cup" as written by and Jimmy L. Webb....
Here inside my paper cup
Everything is looking up
On one comes in, no one goes out
Nothin' to get hung up about
I'm free and it's so easy to get by
Cause I don't try

In my paper cup
I have installed a shower stall
Across the hall
Running water and a den
It's looking just like home again
I'm free and I've installed refrigerated air
You'd have to look inside
Before you'd know that I was there
And everybody says I'm quite insane
And someday I'll be going down the drain
I know they're right
But I feel no pain

Here inside my paper cup
Everything is looking up
On one goes out, no one comes in
It's lookin' just like home again
I'm free and it's so easy to get
The things I've always wanted
Cause I don't really want 'em anymore
Living ain't so bad without a rudder
Life is kind a groovy in the gutter
If you know how, and I do
So if you'd like to come along
We'll sing a little paper song
About a lonely paper plate
Who couldn't find a paper mate
I'm free, yes, I'm free
And my life is looking up
From inside my paper cup
And I'm always looking up
From inside my paper cup
