I dreamt that Barbie sold the ‘vette, & gave the cash to charity,
she told me she has no regrets to leave the lap of luxury,
+++ on a train that doesn’t stop, you can’t get off unless you jump, well
+++++ everybody’s out there, lookin’ for a new pill to make them happy,
+++++ like the old pill used to do..

sugar, sleep, and cigarettes could manage all my little moods,
and you could get me over her, but who would get me over you?
+++ on a road that doesn’t turn, you wonder if we’ll ever learn,
+++++ everybody’s out there, lookin’ for a new pill to make them happy,
+++++ like the old pill used to do..
+++ all my favorite analgesics, anything to numb these feelings,
+++ turning on the television just might be my last decision,
+++ as the lemmings start to scurry, is there one in back going,
+++++ “what’s the hurry, guys,.. what’s the hurry?..”

I dreamt that Barbie cut her hair, & gave it all to charity,
she no longer cared about the whims of high society,
+++ you ride a train that doesn’t stop, you can’t get off unless you jump,
+++++ everybody’s out there, lookin’ for a new pill to make them happy,
+++++ like the old pill used to do,
+++++ everybody’s out there, lookin’ for a new pill to make them happy,
+++++ like the old pill used to do…
