Plastic Fantastic Lover Lyrics - Jefferson Airplane



Review The Song (3)


Her neon mouth with the blinking soft smile
Is nothing but an electric sign
You could say she has an individual style
She's part of a colorful time

Super-sealed lady, chrome-color clothes
You wear 'cause you have no other
But I suppose no one knows
You're my plastic fantastic lover

Your rattlin' cough never shuts off
Is nothin' but a used machine
Your aluminum finish, slightly diminished
Is the best I ever have seen

Cosmetic baby plugged into me
And never ever find another
And I realize no one's wise
To my plastic fantastic lover

The electrical dust is starting to rust
Her trapezoid thermometer taste
All the red tape is mechanical rape
Of the TV program waste

Data control and IBM
Science is mankind's brother
But all I see is drainin' me
On my plastic fantastic lover

So true even this day | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/13

Though this song was composed in sang in another era , so true that it resonates to this day , more appropriate to our current day obsessions internet , mobile phone and its various applications ,meterialistic mentality most of us possess >>>>>>>>>>>

Signs of the Times | Reviewer: Bob Wyman | 5/30/11

It was the end of the 1950's and the term "Space Age" was used by media everywhere. Everything had to be "modern" and it was made from plastic. The computer was taking shape and the electron tube that powered so many items was replaced by a tiny transistor. It was soon to be made even smaller and planted in a microchip. When all these sights and sounds are blended with the effects of psychedelic drugs being used by so many people including the Jefferson Airplane then "electrical dust" makes sense. "Data control" perhaps refers to the first computer hard drives, 10 megabytes of storage and as big as a kitchen stove. "IBM" was the leader in all things computer at the time and in second place was Burroughs Adding Machine Company which was founded ironically by the great grandfather of beat poet William Burroughs.

Marty's Hard Rock Protest Song | Reviewer: pbierre | 4/27/08

PFL is one of the Airplane's all-time bests. In it, you can clearly follow the thread of ambivalence toward progress voiced by earlier beat poets and Dylan, but unprecedented in its mean, biting, hypnotic rock trance. What it says so perfectly fit the times, then and now - you can't live with it but you can't live without it. Balin as poet chronicler took the time to look around once in a while, and his scribblings in this case leave us with a vivid tapestry of easy seduction by the shiniest object in view. Not exactly a Barry McGuire song, but Marty is nonetheless sending us an urgent warning to look deep inside the things we're attracted to. So easily manipulated are we.
