Silcone Sally

A song inspired by the pressure on some women (and some men) to resort to plastic surgery to the point of addiction (see video below – you can see my love of manga!)


SILICONE SALLY

~~~~

Silicone Sally lives all alone

In the ideal hues of her ideal home

I hear her howling on the ‘dog and bone’:

It’s a heart to heart with the dialling tone

Silicone Sally, you’re so unreal

Why won’t you tell me just how you feel?

Silicone Sally, you’re so unreal

~~~~

C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, Sally!

Tell me how you feel! Won’t you keep it real?

C’mon, c’mon, Sally!

Won’t you tell me the truth now?

Won’t you tell me the truth now?

Because there’s more to this

Than your synthesis!

Your cut-glass face:

It just cuts me to the bone!

~~~~

Silicone Sally, where do we start?

Venetians blind you with their perfect art

I hear you howling at the Lonely Hearts

It seems they’ve found you all your perfect parts!

Silicone Sally, what did you steal?

Why can’t you tell me just how you feel?

Silicone Sally, you’re just unreal

~~~~

SOLO OVER CHORUS

~~~~

When Silicone Sally met Hologram Harry

Their horror-scopes told them they should marry

So Harry takes her by her surgeon’s hand

To lead her to her Synthesised and Promised Land

~~~~

… So Sally still lives alone

Her surgeon’s made her such a perfect clone

Poor Harry’s howling in his comfort zone

He found her heart was the hardest stone

~~~~

Silicone Sally, what is your deal?

Why can’t you tell him just how you feel?

Silicone Sally, you’re so unreal

~~~~

C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon now, Sally!

Why won’t you tell him how you feel?

Tell him how you feel!

Won’t you tell him the truth now?

Won’t you tell him the truth now?

Or are you just a CGI who’s programmed not to feel

Just make it real; tell him how you feel (FADE)
