New York Dolls

The New York Dolls is an American rock band, formed in New York in 1971. The band's protopunk sound prefigured much of what was to come in the punk rock era; their visual style influenced the look of many new wave and 1980s-era glam metal groups, and they began the local New York scene that later spawned the Ramones, Blondie, Television and Talking Heads. more »

Well if you don't like it
Go ahead, find yourself a saint
Go ahead now
Try to find a boy
Who's gonna be what I ain't

Now what you need is
A plastic doll with a fresh coat of paint
Who's gonna sit through the madness
And always acts so quaint
Said yeah yeah yeah

With your new friend
You're really making a scene
And I see you bouncing around
From machine to machine

And you know
They're never real, they're
Never what they seem
And you can try to generate some warmth
And you see just what I mean
I said yeah yeah yeah

And If I'm acting like a king
Well that's cause
I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
Don't you know that I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream
Baby baby baby yeah
I'm a human being
And when it gets a bit obscene (wooah)
I'm a human being

And I've just got to go around
With my head hung down
Just like a human, babe,
An unknown human being
And I can hold my head so high
'Cause I'm a human, a riff raff human being

Why won't you give me a little sip
Why don't you try me on a drag of that cigarette
Why don't you try to give me something that
I will never ever forget

But now don't you blow it all
On a million dollar bet
Because you're liable to lose it
On the best lovin' you've had yet
I'm beggin' yeah yeah oh yeah

And If I'm acting like a king
Well that's cause I'm a human being
I want too many things
Don't you know that I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream I said well,
I'm a human being
And when it gets a bit obscene (wooah)
I'm a human being

And I've got to go around
With my head hung down
Just like a human, babe
An unknown human being
And I can hold my head so high
'Cause I'm a human, a riff raff human being

In fact I'm talking about the human race
You're trying to cover up the big disgrace
I said yeah yeah yeah,
Oh see'mon see'mon see'mon
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah

Well I may think that this whole scene is
Just a too appalling for me
Or I may be the type who's just a mad about
Every little thing that I see
Well I can color that with mystery
Or make it just what I want it to be
While I'm blowing my change on the fan magazines
With all the Hollywood refugees, screaming
Yeah yeah, oh yeah

And If I'm acting like a king
I said well, I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
Don't you know that I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream
Baby baby, I'm a human being
And when it gets a bit obscene (wooah)
I'm a human being

And I've got to go around With my head hung down
Just like a human being
We're all just human being
And I can hold my head so high
'Cause I'm a human, a first class human being

I'm a human being
I'm a human being
I'm a human being
I'm a human being
