Jonathan Richman
Chewing Gum Wrapper

I saw the chewing gum wrapper,
saw it after lunch;
Faded little cruddy thing,
I picked from among the bunch.
Cruddy little chewing gum wrapper,
My eyes would not let go;
Saw the little thing that I liked so.
Loved the faded colors like would end up at the dump,
My heart goes bumpety, bumpety, bumpety bump.

Cruddy little chewing gum wrapper,
Faded by the rain;
You got to see it for yourself,
My words just can't explain.
Cruddy little chewing gum wrapper,
dried up by the sun;
Someone else got to feel this way, I can't be the only one.
Who loves the faded colors like would end up at the dump.
My heart goes bumpety, bumpety, bumpety bump.

Faded plenty and corroded some,
I saw the chewing gum wrapper,
I picked it up just like a bum,
Cruddy little, cruddy little, cruddy little thing;
Full of dirt and it was full of grit,
I saw the chewing gum wrapper;
But colors like that you can't git,
Cruddy little cruddy little cruddy little cruddy little.

Well, cruddy little chewing gum wrapper,
My heart would not let go;
The colors hypnotize me, and I love them so.
Cruddy little chewing gum wrapper,
This I must say;
These colors move me more than most or what I see today.
I love the faded colors like would end up at the dump,
My heart goes bumpety, bumpety, bumpety bump.

I saw the chewing gum wrapper,
When I was on a walk;
I saw the faded green
And I could barely talk.
Cruddy little chewing gum wrapper
When I was on a roam
I was the faded yellow
And wanted to take it home
Cruddy little chewing gum wrapper.
