Shiny Toys

by Joni Mitchell   Printer-friendly version of this lyric

Shiny toys right on time
Shiny toys right on time
Shiny toys

I'm reading people rags in the checkout lane
Look, here's a hunk here's a honey
Celebrated people and their claims to fame
Here's a boy and his money
And pictures of the winners in the latest
Ratepoll games

Whatever makes you "Yahoo"
Whatever makes your time feel satisfyin'
Whatever makes you
"Oh I'm so excited"
Whatever makes you feel
like you're right on time

Party night
Good bands all over town
(good good good)
Mega lights and supersonic sounds
(good good good)
Flashy boys and girls that really play
(good good good)
Shiny toys when it's over don't you
hate to have to put your toys away

Shiny toys "I love my Porsche"
Shiny toys
Shiny toys "I love my Porsche"
Shiny toys

Simple joys
Walking on the beach at the end of the day
Between the sand and the seagulls
Watching the glorious sun setting on the bay
Here comes a boy and his beagle
Walking with a man in a toupee
and a man with his head shaved

Whatever makes you "Mmmm, mmmm"
Whatever makes your time feel satisfyin'
Whatever makes you "Mmmmm, mmmm"
Whatever makes you feel like you're right on time

Party night
Super bands all over town
(good good good)
Super lights and supersonic sounds
(good good good)
Flashy boys and girls that really play
(good good good)
Shiny toys when it's over
don't you hate to have to put your toys away

Shiny toys right on time
Shiny toys right on time
Shiny toys right on time
Shiny toys right on time
