Well, you're a waste of space
No natural grace
You're so bloody thin
You don't even begin

To interest me
Not even curiousity
It's not animosity
Just don't interest me

Well, you're an energy void
A black hole to avoid
No style, no heart
You don't even start

To interest me
Not even curiousity
It's not animosity
Just you don't interest me

Oh, come on!

You're a disgrace!

Tell me
Why don't you tell me?
Why don't you tell me?
Why don't you tell me?
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh, oh, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh, oh, oh, oh, tell me
Why don't you tell me?
Tell me
Why don't you tell me?
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (la-la, oh, oh)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh, oh, oh, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Last time, now
Tell me
Why don't you tell me?

    General CommentSorry people you're all barking up the wrong tree this song was written in '77 let's remember, back at the roots of Punk they're having a pop at the fashion industry

    Punk is (was) anti-fashion but now it has become fashion, which is why PUNK IS DEAD

    Nothing to do with when people piss you off or fake people you despise, or attacking any particular individual. Thin = shallow, btw. The clue's in the title - "Mannequin", geddit?
