Cold Chisel – Painted Doll lyrics

Painted Doll
Cold Chisel
(Twentieth Century)

Painted doll, on a painted stage
Painted doll, on a painted stage
She's just a one-man Punch and Judy show
For caliphs twice her age
Painted doll, on a painted stage

The more they look at her
The less I see
The more they look at her
The less I see
It's a tricky situation when some
Parasite has got my painted doll
And she's got me

Lookin' down Sydney Harbour in the rain
My pretty baby's slappin' up another vein
If this is gonna be her final wage
My heart may never see this world again

She's my little sick salome
And it's breakin' me in two
Painted doll
I've got a deal for you
