"Modern Things"

One extra post right before the weekend. This 80's Flashback Friday tune is for the *Wallpaper design-decor crowd. Extra points if you can help us decipher some of the missing lyrics under the cut.

"Immaculate photography
Everything looks brand new

They cost a lot
And they're awfully hard to locate

I always wondered who buy these things
And what those people are like
I know I'd like to have these things
And nothing...

TVs
Ashtrays
Flatware
Modular systems and packaging
Product design"

Beautiful things from Paris

Beautiful things from Berlin
All over the world

Why doesn't everyone like these things
When they're part of our time?

It's not imitation anything
It's real plastic!
