歌詞

Artist:suzanne vega

Songs Title:machine ballerina

 

Am I an afternoon's pastime

A thing on a string

To be thrown and retrieved

Like a phone call received

On somebody's birthday

To tease and delight

And then say goodnight

And then just say goodbye

 

Am I a toy on a tray

A soft piece of clay

Queen or clown for the day

Machine ballerina

Soldier of tin

Standing so loyal

While you sit so royal

 

Then I'm put away

 

For your approval

 

Perusal

And your possible

Refusal

I'm amusing

I'm a puppet for your play

 

Am I your Mad Magazine

Skin trampoline

Pin-up pinball machine

Your fantasy girl

Of puzzling parts

But none fits or starts

We match wits but not hearts

I'm heard but never seen

 

For your approval

Perusal

And your possible

Refusal

I'm amusing

I'm a puppet for your play
