All those plastic people, where do they all come from?
All those plastic people, where so they all belong.

Curtain’s drawn in the children’s room,
the floor is covered with toys.
Baby’s sleeping save and sound,
but suddenly you hear a whispering noise.
He-Man wakes up Barbie doll and says:
“Hey lets go to work!
While the kids are sleeping tight,
we gonna slip into their dream world!”
“Listen Baby, listen what I say!
When you grow up you wanna be like me.”
Then Barbie smiles her plastic smile,
and the power of suggestion creates this unbreakable tie.
“Give yourself up, don’t make no plans,
You have no choice, you’re in our hands!”


So girls grown up to be like dolls,
and boys become muscle machines.
Six packs, Botox, hair wax and boob jobs
make their bodies look nice and clean.
This suits you perfect
You’re looking great
This is awesome
You’re sweet as cake
They chat away day in day out
Everything’s good. There is no doubt.
Hey lovey-dovey
You sugar pie
You’re my angel
Damn girl you look fly.
