"FM Doll" as written by Catherine Jane Garside, Crispin Gray and Peter Howard....
I turned my back on my mother's milk
But I want it back
It was already spilt
I can't get me behind me
'Cause the devil is on my tail, so to speak
I said, somebody's going to jail

Take my doll put on her pretty clothes
Don't you soil her dress
Brush her hair, paint her lips like a rose
Cover up your mess

Strip, baby, strip, cause your daddy is watching
Strip, baby, strip, JonBenét
Strip, baby, strip, cause your mother knows nothing
Strip, baby, strip, JonBenét

Someone said the doctor is my friend
The bruising is his cause
My soul to save a smoking gun in bed
Behind closing doors

Strip, baby, strip, for the soul of your brother
Strip, baby, strip, for his wife
Strip, baby, strip, cause you know she's not willing
Strip, baby, strip, by the knife

I lost my doll, put on my pretty clothes
I won't soil my dress
I brush my hair, paint my lips like a rose
I cover up my mess

Strip, baby, strip, for the soul of your mother
Strip, baby, strip, for her life
Strip, baby, strip, cause you know you're worth nothing
Strip, baby, strip, by the knife

Strip, baby, strip, cause your daddy is watching
Strip, baby, strip, JonBenét
Strip, baby, strip, cause you know you're worth nothing
Strip, baby, strip, JonBenét

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite QA songs....sigh...

    This song is about JonBenet Ramsey, the six-year old American beauty queen who was murdered on Christmas day in 1996. Her brother and both of her parents were suspected in turn for her death.

    By the way, does anyone know what Katie Jane sings between the lines "Bruising is his cause" and "behind closing doors"?

    General CommentIt goes:

    Someone said the doctor is my friend
    For bruising is his cause
    My soul to save a smoking gun in bed
    Behind closing doors

    General CommentBeyond the obvious meaning and reference to the JonBenet Ramsey murder case, this song screams to me about a girl who feels (or is) worth nothing more than sex. "Pretty" (of "pretty clothes") seems to have a shallow connotation as does "paint her lips like a rose" (roses die and therefore can represent empty beauty in this case).

    And obviously "strip, baby, strip cos you know you're worth nothing" speaks pretty clearly...

    Just my thoughts...

    P.S. The lyrics posted here are incorrect, but the corrected ones are posted next to it on the list of Queen Adreena songs. :)
