Coin Operated Boy
G                                 D
Coin-operated boy, sitting on the shelf he is just a toy
               Am                 C
But I turn him on and he comes to life
          D                         G             G F# G G#
Automatic joy, that is why I want a coin-operated boy
Am              C            G            D
Made of plastic and elastic, he is rugged and long-lasting
Am             C            G   D
Who could ever ever ask for more
Am              C            G   D
Love without complications galore
Am              C                       G            D
Many shapes and weights to choose from, I will never leave my bedroom
Am           C             G   D
I will never cry at night again
Am            C                G   F D
Wrap my arms around him and pretend
G                                D
Coin-operated boy, all the other real ones that I destroy
              Am
Cannot hold a candle to my new boy and I'll
              D          
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
                                     G
And I'll never be alone, not with my coin-operated boy
C               D          Bm            C
This bridge was written to make you feel smitten-er
C           D          Bm           C
With my sad picture of girl getting bitter-er
C         D             Bm         C
Can you extract me from my plastic fantasy
C        D            Bm           C
I didn't think so but I'm still convincible
C           D         Bm      C
Will you persist even after I bet you
  C       D            Bm         C
A billion dollars that I'll never love you

    C           D         Bm      C
And will you persist even after I kiss you
    C           D              Bm          A
Goodbye for the last time will you keep on trying
   C             A         C            A
To prove it, I'm dying, to lose it, I'm losing
C              A          C          A          C      
My confidence, I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it
A           C           A           C
I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you
A           C           A           C
I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you

    Am         C               G             D
And if I had a star to wish on for my life I can't imagine
Em                               C
Any flesh and blood could be his match
Em                         C     F D
I can even take him in the bath
G                                D
Coin-operated boy, he may not be real experienced with girls
              Am                      C
But I know he feels like a boy should feel
               D             
Isn't that the point, that is why I want a
G                                  D
Coin-operated boy, with his pretty coin-operated voice
               Am                           C
Saying that he loves me, that he's thinking of me
                    D          
Straight and to the point, that is why I want a
G                D G
Coin-operated boy

About the artist behind Coin Operated Boy:

The Dresden Dolls[1] are an American musical duo from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 2001, the group consists of Amanda Palmer (vocals, piano, harmonica, ukelele) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion, guitar, vocals). The two describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", a phrase invented by Palmer because she was "terrified" that the press would invent a name that "would involve the word gothic."[2] The Dresden Dolls are part of an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early 1990s.
