  • Rag doll, livin' in a movie
    Hot tramp, daddy's little cutie
    You're so fine, they'll never see ya leavin' by the back door, mam
    Hot time get it while it's easy
    Don't mind come on up and see me
    Rag doll baby won't you do me like you done before

    I'm feelin' like a bad boy
    Mm just a like a bad boy
    I'm rippin' up a Rag Doll
    Like throwin' away an old toy
    Some babe's talkin' real loud
    Talkin' all about the new crowd
    Try and tell me of an old dream
    A new version of the old scene
    Speak easy on the grape vine
    Keep shufflin' in a shoe shine
    Old tin lizzy do it till you're dizzy
    Give it all ya got until you're put out of your misery

    Rag doll, livin' in a movie
    Hot tramp, daddy's little cutie
    You're so fine, they'll never see ya leavin' by the back door, mam
    Hot time get it while it's easy
    Don't mind come on up and see me
    Rag doll baby won't you do me like you done before

    Yes I'm movin'
    Yes I'm movin'
    Get ready for the big time
    Tap dancing on a land mine
    Yes I'm movin'
    Yes I'm movin'
    Old tin lizzy do it till you're dizzy
    Give it all ya got until you're put out of your misery

    Rag doll livin' in a movie
    Hot tramp Daddy's little cutie
    You're so fine they'll never see ya leavin' by the back door, mam
    Hot time get it while it's easy
    Don't mind come on up and see me
    Rag doll, baby won't ya do me, baby won't ya do me,
    Baby won't ya do me like you done before

    Yes I'm movin'
    Yes I'm movin'
    Get ready for the big time
    Get crazy on the moon shine
    Yes I'm movin'
    I'm really movin'

    Give it all ya got until you're put out of your misery
