lyrics

These dolls are all wearing mini skirts
Fishnet stockings and see through shirts
Was the toymaker a pervert?
Well now he’s just hitting pay dirt
And dad wants to do all the good deeds
Including buying his daughter everything she needs
She knows her nagging will succeed
Provided the begging is consistent and on repeat
Eventually dad will concede
And reach for his wallet, guaranteed

A plastic toy tells her how a young boy likes girls to show
A little bit of their naked skin
Is it for the common good that magazines tell boys that they should
Spend another hour at the gym
The budget is gigantic and the adds turn parents manic, well
Is this industry out on a limb?
Then another wave of media hits your home with movie stars
And you hope to god your kids can swim

Will this body image forever stay in the newborns eyes
Eyes that are opening this wide for the very first time
Opened with a sharp surgical knife on which the blade reflects a child
Living a life where everyone has to strife, where the fittest survive

A plastic toy tells her how a young boy likes girls to show
A little bit of their naked skin
Is it for the common good that magazines tell boys that they should
Spend another hour at the gym
The budget is gigantic and the adds turn mommy manic, well
Is this industry out on a limb?
Then another wave of media hits your home with movie stars
And you hope to god your kids can swim
