I'm Real 02:37 video
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... ©Armstrong =========

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 ©Armstrong =========
