Shabby Doll [*]
- 65 Views
Giving you more of what for Always worked for me before Now I'm a shabby doll What's going on behind the green elevator door With just a shabby doll There's a hit man facing A compromising situation With just a shabby doll And a very neat line in character assassination She's just a shabby doll She's just a shabby doll She's putting him off and putting you on She's just the shabby doll You're swearing upon you know in your heart She's gone you know in your heart She's just a shabby doll There's a girl in this dress There's always a girl in distress She's just a shabby doll She's so sure she's self-possessed Then again she's half undressed She's just a shabby doll The boy that I used to be Showed no sign of sympathy For just a shabby doll I have betrayed you and me And paid for my own bribery With just a shabby doll [Chorus] He's the tired toy that everyone enjoyed He wants to be a fancy man but he's nothing but a antsy boy He's all pride and no joy And being what you might call a whore Always worked for me before Now I'm a shabby doll Untie the gag the cat's out of the bag But won't show his claws He's just a shabby doll She said you must be joking Some things are left unspoken You're just a shabby doll He's lying limp and soaking He was openly broken By just a shabby doll [Chorus]
