I've got a girl in a box,
Keep her under my bed, it sure must get hot in the summertime.
I get her out when there's nothing else to do.
When there's nothing on TV, when I can't see you.
Wife don't mind if I give her a child.
My wife don't mind, she thinks it's pretty wild.
I've got this girl in a box, I got a girl in a box.

I'll keep her 'till the day,
I'll keep her 'till the day,
I'll keep her 'till the day that I die

And I hope I die in the nighttime
With my TV on and a beer in my hand and you by my side.

I got a girl in a box,
We play games, I'm anything I'm not,
But I wanna' be, yeah, I wanna be.
She'll be a slut, or a dirty little whore
Or the girl next door or my bride instead
Or I'll cut off her head,
If I want to, yeah, I want to.

I'll keep her 'till the day,
I'll keep her 'till the day,
I'll keep her 'till the day that I die.
I've got a girl in a box.
I've got a girl in a box.

    General CommentIt was based on the abduction and kept in a box built into some guys bed. Her name was Carol Smith I think. This song is yet another example of how the Blake Babies pair very dark lyrics with very sweet harmony.

    General CommentI thought it was about a blow-up sex doll, but I'll take BlackQ's word.
    Great song - melody, vocal delivery. But geez - such creepy lyrics.

    General Commentanother interpretation of the song, which i think is especially poignant, is that the singer was born male but doesn't feel conforming to that gender but rather that she needs to repress that part of herself. so that the "girl in the box" is in fact her own femininity that she feels she needs to hide and objectify.
