Shabby Doll - Elvis Costello & The Attractions

1, 2, 3, 4
Giving you more of what for
Always worked for me before
Now I'm a shabby doll
What's going on behind the
Green elevator door
With just a shabby doll
There's a hit man facing
A compromising situation
With just a shabby doll
And a very neat line
In character assassination
She's just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
She's putting him off and putting you on
She's just the shabby doll
She's just the shabby doll
You're swearing upon you know in your heart
She's gone you know in your heart
She's just a shabby doll
There's a girl in this dress
There's always a girl in distress
She's just a shabby doll
She's so sure she's self-possessed
Then again she's half undressed
She's just a shabby doll
The boy that I used to be
Showed no sign of sympathy
For just a shabby doll
I have betrayed you and me
And paid for my own bribery
With just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
She's putting him off and putting you on
She's just the shabby doll
She's just the shabby doll
You're swearing upon you know in your heart
She's gone you know in your heart
She's just a shabby doll
He's the tired toy that everyone enjoyed
He wants to be a fancy man
But he's nothing but a nancy boy
He's all pride and no joy
And being what you might call a whore
Always worked for me before
Now he's a shabby doll
Untie the gag the cat's out of the bag
But won't show his claws
He's just a shabby doll
She said you must be joking
Some things are best unspoken
You're just a shabby doll
He's lying limp and soaking
He was openly broken
By just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
She's putting him off and putting you on
She's just the shabby doll
She's just the shabby doll
You're swearing upon you know in your heart
She's gone you know in your heart
She's just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
She's just a shabby doll
