 Her tainted smile
Stuck for a while
While her death grin shined all day

Her melancholy manner
Stuck like artificial tanner
In almost every way

She looks just like a Barbie Doll
Place her up against that wall
We'll make some cash and have a ball
"They'll use me dry until I fall"

She slowly dies inside
A monumental lack of pride
"I am fine" is all that she can say

Lost in a psycho globia
A heart filled with ev'ry phobia
And all that she does is pray

She looks just like a Barbie Doll
Throw her up against that wall
We'll steal her cash and have a ball
"They'll use me dry until I fall
Down. Down. Down to the bottom
Of the six foot pit they dug"

She's trapped as theirs
As if they care
As they all get her pay

With her famous smile
She wants to run for miles
Disappear and Reappear somewhere far away

She is just a Barbie Doll
Chain her up against that wall
Need a face? Give her a call
"They've used me dry and now I fall

Down. Down. Down into the bottom
Of the six foot pit that they
Generously dug

Down. Down. Down in the bottom
Of the six foot pit that they
Happily ever dug"
