Well, we can't take it this week
And her friends don't want another speech
Hoping for a better day to hear what she's got to say

All about that
Personality crisis, you got it while it was hot
But now frustration and heartache is what you got
(That's why they talk about personality)

But now you're tryin' to be some no you got to do some
Want to be someone who cow, wow, wows
But you think about the times you did they took every ounce
When it sure got to be a shame when you start to scream and shout
You got to contradict all those times you were butterflyin' about
(You was butterflyin')

'Bout personality crisis, you got it while it was hot
You know it's hot, you know, it's
Frustration and heartache, what you got
I said I'm talking about personality, yeah, yeah, yeah

And you're a prima ballerina on a Spring afternoon
Change on into the wolfman, howlin' at the moon, hooowww

Got a personality crisis you got it while it was hot
You know it's hot, you know it's
Frustration and heartache is what you got

Now with all the crossin' fingers that mother nature says
Your mirrors get jammed up with all your friends

That personality everything starts to blend (not like moi)
Personality when your mind starts to blend
Got so much personality impression of a friend of a friend
Of a friend, of a friend, of a friend
Personality wonderin' how celebrities ever met
(Look and find out on television)

Personality crisis you got it while it was hot
You know it's hot, you know it's frustration and heartache is all you got
Oh, don't you worry
Personality crisis please don't cry
It's just a personality crisis, please don't stop

Because you walk a personality, talk a personality

    General CommentIf you have ever gone out one night - gotten wasted and ended up having a conversation with someone and feeling passionate about something which you know little about or normally don't care about - then you should be able to identify with these lyrics! There are plenty of layers to this song's great lyrics. It's about someone suffering from Fregoli delusion (look it up). Also touches on being absorbed in current events and pop culture to an unhealthy extent where the subject can no longer tell if their thoughts and ambitions are really their own anymore. It's suggesting that culture as a whole is controlling you and making you miserable. A layer of guilt exists in the lyrics as well, of the subject doubting, being unhappy, and or not identifying with their past actions.

    General CommentThe New York Dolls were one of the best proto-punk/hard rock bands ever to come out of anywhere. this song is outstanding. Its just basically about someone's personality being conflicted and fucked up things in generall. by the way, they shit all over BSB, slipknot britney spears and all that crap

    General Commentproto-punk/GLAM rock, if i may. They were the best. No one will ever beat them. And you got the right meaning anal_cunt.

    "(Look and find out on television)" is totally wrong! The real line is: Lookin' fine on television

    General Commenti think this song is about someone with a personality crisis, because, they repeated it a lot, and i think they are a girl, because they said balerina, so a balerina with a personality c risis met them so they wrote a song about a balerina with a personality crisis, and she had a crisis regarding her personality and she was a balerina, so ...yeah MARRY ME AJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BSB ROX SO DOES BRITNEY SPEARS AND SLIPKNOT
