"Hate Paper Doll" as written by and Mould....
Hate paper doll
You never get cut, but you're looking at me
Hate paper doll
You never get back what you never could see

Paid for it all
Cut from a sack that you got on TV
Paid for it all,
Taking it back 'cause you wanted it free
Wanted it free now
You wanted to be just like me now, I say

Hate paper doll
You never get cut, but you're looking at me
Hate paper doll
You never get back what you never could see, I said

Hate paper doll
Hate paper doll
Hate paper doll
Hate paper doll

Taking it off, now
Cut from a sack that you got on TV, yeah who
Paid for 'em all
Taking it back, wanted it free
Wanted it free now
You say you wanted to be just like me, now, I said

Hate paper doll
You never get cut, but you're looking at me
Hate paper doll
You never get back what you never could see, I said

Hate paper doll
Hate paper doll
Hate paper doll
Hate paper doll

Hate, paper doll
Hate, paper doll
Hate, paper doll
Hate, paper doll
Hate paper
Hate paper ho

    My OpinionThis IS an excellent Husker Du song. The song is an admonishment of a jealous friend. "Cut from a sack that you got on TV" doesn't make sense to me, but I love the way Bob sings it.

    What the heck is a "hate paper doll"?

    I don't know! I came up with the melody and cadence of the syllables (DAH-DAH, dah DAHHHH), then I guess I just fit some words into the sounds. Jon Wurster is always at me to play that song!
