Don't be so hard on yourself You gave it all you had It's something inside you Petrified you Try not to feel so bad
Don't be so hard on yourself The game is cruel and tough You had a straight And a couple of aces But it wasn't quite enough
That's the way it goes Some you win and some you don't Some you sing and hearts get broke Like china dolls, like china dolls Delicate and beautiful
Look at their purple, look at their purple eyes Your stepfather's on the phone He wants to know if you're coming home He's sick of you always getting stoned With your china dolls And your china dolls Delicate and beautiful
Don't be so hard on yourself We know that you tried Gave 'em some love And a couple of doves But they didn't wanna fly
And that's the way it goes Some they fill your heart and soul Some they treat you so damn cold Like china dolls, like china dolls Delicate and beautiful
Look at their devil, look at their devil eyes The police are on the phone They want to know if you're coming home God, I wish that your mother had never sold Those china dolls, those china dolls Delicate and beautiful Oh, your china dolls and your china dolls China doll, oh china dolls

John Lennon wrote "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" about Richard Cooke, a hunter he met at the Maharishi's camp in India. Cooke hasn't shot anything since the camp, except with his camera - he became a freelance photographer for National Geographic.
