Would you be my favorite doll?
You don't have to think or talk at all
But when I pull your string you'd better sing
There's a good girl, now here's the thing
Listen to me good and don't you fight
Don't do as I do, just do as I might
Be my typewriter be my mental health
and if you won't, I'll put you right back on the shelf

Would you be the trick up my sleeve
when I'm looking to commit a little Adam & Eve?
We can beat around the bush if you catch my drift
and if you tear at the seams, maybe I'll get you fixed
Oh, baby be bad, baby break my back
Yank off my arms, have my legs for a snack
Stare me down with your button eyes, turn me to stone
Put my head in a box and I'll moan, moan, moan

Would you be my favorite doll?
I'll bet you don't have the gall
It's a full-time occupation both night and day
and if nobody does it I might go insane
So patch up your faults and stitch up your pride
Ready the ring, here comes the bride
Pin your willing effigy upon my wall
and then you can be my favorite doll
