Barbie Nation
Randy Stonehill

Intro:   C    G  Am  F  Fm

        C                 G
She was told when she was young
          Am
Ah - that blondes always have more fun
        C         G         F
Lie lie lie dirty lie du du dumb
        C            G
Perfect hair perfect waist
       Am                 D              F
With a perfect prom queen smile upon her face
         G
For everyone

             F            C
But it's all right, it's okay
         G                                     F    C
Now your self-respect is the only price you'll pay
      F               Am
It's okay, that's all right
           F            G      Am
You're the queen of the Barbie nation
F            G      Am
Queen of the Barbie nation
F            G      Am       D
Queen of the Barbie nation tonight
  G
Tonight yeah

        C          G
Romance books, magazines
     Am
T.V. shows and the movie screens
             C         G          F
They lie lie lie dirty lies empty dreams
       C               G
It's a shame you bowed down 
       Am       D            F
To the deity of Helen Gurley Brown
     G
So obscene

       F            C
It's alright, it's okay
     G                                F   C
Just don't forget you're always on display
      F             Am
It's okay, that's alright
           F            G      Am
You're the queen of the Barbie nation
F            G      Am
Queen of the Barbie nation
F            G      Am       D
Queen of the Barbie nation tonight
  G
Tonight yeah

       D        /C#        /C          /B
You're sexy and driven and doomed to succeed
       D            /C#           /C          /B
You'll get what you want but it's nothing you need
    C             G                Am
And echoed in the heartache you conceal
             F               Fm
Is something good, something real

        C                G
She was told that in the end
      Am
Every Barbie gets her Ken
        C           G           F
Lie lie lie no such guy just pretend
            C                 G
We pull the strings, wind the doll
   Am                   D               F
We create the myth that she can have it all
       G
It's a sin

           F            C
But it's alright, it's okay
            G                             F     C
Though your dignity is all that's left to trade
      F             Am
It's okay, that's alright
           F            G      Am
You're the queen of the Barbie nation
F            G      Am
Queen of the Barbie nation
F            G      Am       D
Queen of the Barbie nation tonight
  G
Tonight yeah
