Barbie

first there was Barbie then there was Ken
picture perfect Americans
big hair, big boobs and a hardbody tan
Lady Liberty's back-up plan
worked for her, sucked for me
everything's right with the world

when I was a little Indian boy
my GI Joe was my favorite toy
when I landed in Baltimore with my Dad
we both pledged allegience to the flag
worked for him, sucked for me
everything's right with the world

hey I got issues too
a stranger to my skin
here's the gospel truth
I'm never fitting in

then one night in a dream I had
I shrunk myself to an eight inch man
Barbie and Ken got me high on hash
then I fucked GI Joe right up the ass
worked for him, worked for me
everything's right with the world
