Fake like plastic
Blonde as could be
Perfect as an angel
Am I the only one who sees?
That Barbie isn’t
Who she pretends to be

She claims to have
A straight edge
But her frame is ragged
Party girl on Saturday
Church girl on Sunday
And school girl on Monday
She can be whoever she wants to be
Because her name is Barbie

Why does everyone adore her?
It’s because they believe her
They believe she is beautiful
They believe she is nice
The believe she is sweet
Oh how I wish they could see
That Barbie’s are only for pretending.
