When you were a young girl, you had a rag doll
The only doll you ever owned
I love you just the way you love your rag doll
But only now my love has grown
Oh and it gets stronger
Talkin’ every day

Lead me to the door
Gotta go gotta go anyway
Get me to the floor
Gotta take you everywhere I go yeah
Gotta take you down downtown
