China dolls, China dolls
Lined up against the walls,

Pick one, pick one
Perhaps you’ll get a quick one,

Take one, take one
Maybe you could break one,

Black hair, black hair
Swishing through the cool night air,

Red lips, red lips
See how they swing their hips?

Dark eyes, dark eyes
Watch as you tell them lies,

“Love you, love you
Never ever leave you.”

Oh dear, oh dear
You whisper, whisper in their ears,

Pick one, pick one
She’s a slim, small, slick one,

Take one, take one
I think you’re gonna break one,

Black hair, black hair
Almost too much to bear,

Red lips, red lips
Oh, how her sweet dress rips,

Dark eyes, dark eyes
As the life in them dies,

“Love you, love you
Kiss and hug you, hurt and tug you.”

Oh dear, oh dear
You’ve gone too far, she cannot hear,

Picked one, picked one
She was a pretty quick one,

Took one, took one
Looks like you’ve broken one,

China dolls, China dolls
All broken up against the walls.
