Why do they leave me all by myself? Why do they use me and bring me down? Why do they hurt me, why do they leave me? Why doesn't anybody stick around?
Why doesn't anyone stay here? Why do they leave me? Don't they realize I'm a porcelain doll Small, unsure, beautiful, breakable?
If I sit here, waiting to be wanted Something good will pass me by Many people look through the windows But seldom do they ever look in my eyes
Why doesn't anyone stay here? Why do they leave me? Don't they realize I'm a porcelain doll Fragile, helpless, unwanted, breakable
They can't tell that I am sweet They can't tell I'm like a porcelain doll Beautiful and demure But played with one too many times
Why am I not numb to this? Why can't I let it all outside my mind? Don't let me sit here collecting dust But please be careful, please be kind
Why doesn't anyone stay here? Why do they leave me? Don't they realize I'm a porcelain doll Lost, alone, unsure, kind, demure, small Fragile, helpless, breakable, breakable

The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
