Ever since I was a little girl
I was enamoured with little dolls
Ever since I was a little girl
I was consumed by little guns

Now it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
Now it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls

I can't sleep and I can't eat
With the contemplation of these things
My psychic warned me all about
The complications that these things bring

But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls

Now my parents are so ashamed
And all my friends are so afraid
It vexes me to be this way
But I can't help but stay the same

Intervention didn't help
Where they sent me, I got out
Lord knows that I have tried
To change my ways to change my life

But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls

    General CommentI was thinking about this song this morning, and it occurred to me that this song could be about a woman consumed by American culture's fixation on violence (guns) and sex (dolls). There are at least two ways to read the reaction of her friends and family:

    1) She's just SO into these things that it's starting to scare even other, more moderate members of this culture;

    or

    2) She's from a different culture that does not value these things in the same manner, if at all, thus they are terrified by her serious fixation.

    It's not a perfect interpretation, but it just crossed my mind this morning.
