The Lyrics

I don't know how but Tim Hall did the same title to the same song, I guess it's different but I may be breaking some rules here. Anyway, his is here If Not For Glue by Tim Hall you can decide.
If not for glue
Then I couldn't even mount 'The King'
It's needed for my scrapbooking
No more blue-suede shoes
If not for glue

If not for glue
Think I could be selling my knick-knacks?
If held together by thumbtacks?
They'd look funny too
If not for glue

If not for glue
Wallpaper'd fall
Stain would show right through
Adhesiveness would be nowhere at all
Wouldn't stick
If not for glue

If not for glue
Clips would then be all the rage
Books then all be loose-leaf paged
I just don't know what we'd do
If not for glue

(Sticky Solo)

If not for glue
Fake fingernails
Card board boxes too
There'd be no shoes for sale down at the mall
Be barefoot
If not for glue

If not for glue
Have no way to scare the horse
Overrun me in due course
Lose the power of a boo
If not for glue

If not for glue

Thanks Alvin. If you think glue is important, you should see the list for plastic.. I think someone could redo "We didn't start the fire" with just products plastic is used in.

Thanks Tim, Stuart and John. Stuart, the horse scaring was actually the first line I wrote, it just seemed best to put it last.
