  • I knew when I first saw you
    On the show room floor
    You were made for me
    I took you home
    And dressed you up in polyester
    Princess of my dreams
    Emotionless and cold as ice
    All of the things I like
    The way you look
    The way you move
    The sounds you're making
    In Ultrachrome, latex, and steel

    [Chorus]
    I plug you in
    Dim the lights
    Electric Barbarella
    Your perfect skin
    Plastic kiss
    Electric Barbarella
    Try to resist
    Then we touch
    Hallucinate and tranquilize

    (She's so fine)
    (She's all mine)

    Our private life is subject to investigation
    No time to waste
    People say they heard about our deviation
    But you never looked so good
    Wear the fake fur fake pearls for me
    And put on your mystery
    The way I feel you know
    I never keep you waiting
    In Ultrachrome, latex, and steel

    [Chorus]

    [Chorus]

    Princess of my dreams
    Princess of my dreams
    Majordomo plasticomo Barbarella
    (She's so fine)
    Pro genetic your Electric Barbarella
    (She's all mine)
    My pretty pretty
    Pretty pretty
    Barbarella
    Barbarella
    Barbarella
