Neat Junk © 2009 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

Here I'm piling my collection - my neat junk - all my nifty stuff
My mother is disgusted with my neat junk - all my nifty stuff

Pink Plastic Ballerinas
held candles on countless kids’ cakes
Old menus from sleek shiny diners
with placemats and match books that match
Feeling blatantly materialistic
Mermaid shaped swizzle sticks
lagoon creature model kit
Dolls dressed like nuns and brides
Jetson view master slides
Crackerjacks - prize inside.

When those pharoahs had enough
they got buried with their stuff
Well I guess I can relate to them
check out this mess I’m in
If I’d a’ been Tutenkhamen’s kid
I’d get me my pyramid

What a heavenly storage space
I swear none would go to waste
Space stations and robots
with tin tummies all filled with bright gears
50’s aprons with poodles and polkadots
those dutch decals add
such kitchen kitsch
Feeling blatantly materialistic

All Three Stooges float inside a pen
Action figures of aliens
Torn tickets from the movie “Help”
Souvenir pennants - faded felt
Beldar conehead is accessorized
next to Frankenstein’s lovely bride
45 of the Duke of Earl
keychains with hula girls Gyroscope hypno-twirl

Queen of usage - Lame excuses
that someday I will do collage
Sculptures or mirror frames
Funky icons still amuse me
so ignore half of what I say
The truth is I love to play

Ya gotta love those Addams Family Colorforms
Morticia tangoing with Cousin Itt
GI Joe in flippers and scuba gear
with small snorkel and wet suit that zips

Throw it in a pile. Throw it in a pile
Throw it in a pile - I won’t see it for a while
Save it - store it- hoard it - now I can’t even ignore it
Obsession with possession - this disorder must be catching
When those pharoahs had enough - they got buried with their stuff
Buried with their ... stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff


Genre: funk, dance, rock, swing, pop
