Birdeatsbaby – China Doll lyrics

He wakes up to shave with a rusty razor blade
That dim reflection says that he's a man today and not a boy
Which until previously had been employed
By those who know

It's a pleasure
And oh you're a treasure
I feel better
With just a measure of

Poison for the lady who's expecting his dear baby
And it's only a matter of time

Till he wakes up face down on the bedroom floor
And his wallet is gone and it's almost four
He meant to meet the girl
But it seems that someone else

Took initiative
In fulfilling this
And you won't forgive
Such a sensitive

Subject for her slim physique
I wish to hold my tongue but speak, cause

It's not a baby, It's a china doll
You've got some nerve - you're never here at all

She tells you maybe just to make you fall
But she's no lady she's just mean and

Cruel to be kind
And saintly inside

Now I need to lay my head down to rest
This situation's gone from a mockery into a mess
She's not your type I understand

It's not that easy to let it go
And you'll never know
How to take it slow
And be comfortably

Blind to all her cruel convictions
Shame that you can't see that
She's playing you all for a fool

She's got a bone to pick with everyone I know
So stop Your crying there below, cause

It's not a baby, it's a china doll
You've got some nerve - You're never here at all

She tells you maybe just to make you fall
But she's no lady she's just mean and
Not my problem
