Pat Green — Baby Doll lyrics

She stops and checks her reflection in a car parked on the corner
She says it's hell on me this working down at the diner
Some people say man she was hot back when she was younger
Yeah well she was a dancer when she lived in la

Well she was someone's baby doll
A beauty queen to someone long ago
For the midnight show

And if you close your eyes
You can hear the music playing
You can see her dancing underneath the spotlight
And when she sleeps she dreams she's back in Hollywood
Back when all the world was young
She was someone's baby doll

She stops and checks her reflection in the bathroom on her lunch break
She says "I still look good for someone half of my real age"
Some people say "Man I bet she still makes love like an earthquake"
Yeah but man she ain't easy - she ain't letting you in my friend, my friend

Its time to wake up baby doll
Put your best dress and your high heals on
And dream your gone

When you close your eyes
You can hear the music playing
You can see her dancing underneath the spotlight
And when she sleeps she dreams she's back in Hollywood
Back when all the world was young
She was someone's baby doll

She stops and calls an old friend from the payphone at the subway
She says I feel like I'm just sitting here wasting my days away
It's time to move on baby doll
And walk away just like you did before - when you wanted more

When you close your eyes
You hear the music playing
You can see her dancing underneath the spotlight
And when she sleeps she dreams she's back in Hollywood
When she was a younger girl - a pretty heart in a tainted world
Not sure who you wanna be
Your daddy's little drama queen
I hope that when you find yourself
You're more than just a baby doll
