Track Name: I'm Real
I’m Real:

I ain't no doll no baby I’m real
I talk when you didn’t mean to pull the string
Still there’s no point you don’t seem to hear
I don’t ever look like a walking coat-hanger
I turn my back on all that glamour
And if I get stuck in the cupboard all day
I cry and say I want attention
I ain't no doll no baby I’m real
I’m not on display just to show you where you’ve been
Like the other trophies on the mantlepiece
By now you must have heard the news
There’s someone here who’s been misused
Then you come home with a great idea
I am not going to move to Stepford
I ain't no doll no baby I’m real
I’m so real, that’s how I feel, so real
You’ve got to do your best to please me
Because you see I ain't no doll
I don’t think you’ve really noticed that I ain't, I ain’t no doll
I don’t have to put up with this because you see I ain't no doll
I ain’t no baby I’m real
But still you paint my face and dress me up
You can’t put me away now I’ve burned my box
Snap your fingers and you want me to come
To lift you up when you feel glum
Pick me up put me down I’m just a toy
For you to use and then put aside
That’s what you think?
Goodbye...

Track Name: I Don't Want Your Attentions
I Don’t Want Your Attentions:

So you think you’re pretty smooth and you think you’re out of sight
You’re going to try to pick me up because you want a good time tonight I’m stuck here in this dead end job but that doesn’t make me fair game I’ve had enough of this macho stuff every place I work it’s the same
You come and sit on the edge of my desk you’re breathing down my neck You lean forwards and you’re far too close; you make me want to retch You can see that I’ve gone so tense all I’m thinking is “I hate you”
Then you laugh and you walk away because it’s all a huge joke to you
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I happen to work here and that’s as far as it goes
Just because you pay my wages
Doesn’t mean you can put your hand inside my clothes
So one day you might find someone who’s bored out of her mind
You’ll tell your wife that you’re working late
And maybe she’ll believe you sometimes but
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t have to put up with this you’ve pushed me near the edge
When I see you I want to get away, I just wish you were dead
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
I don’t want you attentions, I don’t want you hanging round me
