(*same as verse 1*)

I'm jealous of shopping carts 
And all of their brand new things 
I want to fondle their labels 
In hopes one'll rub off on me

(*same as Verse 1*)
I spend my days indoors 
Doing like ding-dongs do 
Perfectly preserving 
Myself for you 

I take things out of their boxes 
Take out my note pad and pen 
Study carefully 
With childlike fascination 

'Cause everybody wants to feel brand new 
Like they do

I would surely be one very hungry girl 


(*same as verse 1)
I approach china cautiously 
If there's cracks I deny it 
I ingest only perfect things 
Into my visual diet 

And at night I undress myself 
In front of your favorite things 
Your brand new hand-tied blue bass fishing lure 
And in the corner your money clip sings
