玩偶 Doll – Wang Lee Hom 王力宏


作詞:王力宏 崔惟楷
作曲:王力宏

當司機 搬東西 幫你開車門
隨傳隨到陪你逛街 希望你認真
你跟別人玩耍 叫我在家楞
餵你的哈士奇 還聽他說我笨

我不想讀你的腳本
不想讓你動我的嘴巴
我不想往身上綁線
不想當你的玩偶~玩偶~

送你禮物鮮花 幫你修電燈
帶你上山陪你烤肉 還解不了悶
每天每天痴等 是我太遲鈍
想做你的情人 可是感覺像光棍

我不想讀你的腳本
不想讓你動我的嘴巴
我不想往身上綁線
不想當你的玩偶~玩偶~玩偶~

我不想照你的規則
在你的指間 No
我不想當你的玩偶

我不想讀你的腳本
不想讓你動我的嘴巴
我不想往身上綁線
我不想當你的玩偶~玩偶~

玩偶~玩偶~
