Coin operated boy, sitting on the shelf He is just a toy but I turn him on and he comes to life Automatic joy that is why I want A coin operated boy
Made of plastic and elastic He is rugged and long lasting Who could ever ever ask for more? Love without complications galore
Many shapes and weights to chose from I will never leave my bedroom I will never cry at night again Wrap my arms around him and pretend
Coin operated boy All the other real ones that I destroy Cannot hold a candle to my new boy And I'll never let him go
And I'll never be alone And I'll never let him go And I'll never be alone, go And I'll never be alone, go
And I'll never be alone, go And I'll never be alone, go And I'll never be alone Not with my coin operated boy
This bridge was written to make you feel smitten And with my sad picture of girl getting bitterer Oh, can you extract me from my plastic fantasy I didn't think so but I'm still convincible
Oh will you persist even after I bet you a million dollars That I'll never love you and will you persist even after I kiss you Goodbye for the last time will you be trying to prove it, I'm dying To lose it, I'm losing my confidence
I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it I want to, I want to, I want to, I want to I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you I want a, I want a, I want a, I want a coin operated boy
And if I had a star to wish on for my life I can't imagine any flesh and blood could be this match I can even take him in the bath Coin operated boy, he may not be real experienced with girls
But I know, he feels like a boy should feel, isn't that the point That is why I want a coin operated boy With a pretty coin operated voice saying That he loves me, that he's thinking of me Straight and to the point that is why I want a coin operated boy

"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
