Modern things from Germany
Modern things from Japan
Modern things from Italy
Françoise Sagan...

Beautiful things from Paris
Beautiful things from New York
Beautiful things from Berlin
All over the world

Tape decks
Lounge chairs
Beatle boots
Turbo

You can see them in magazines
"An An" and "Elle Japon"
Immaculate photography
Everything looks brand new

They cost a lot
And they're awfully hard to locate

I always wondered who buy these things
And what those people are like
I know I'd like to have these things
And nothing...

TVs
Ashtrays
Flatware
Modular systems and packaging
Product design

Why doesn't everyone like these things
When they're part of our time?

It's not imitation anything
It's real plastic!
