Song to Barbie by Bevlyn Khoo

Just discovered this song quite recently, sung by a Singaporean singer named Bevlyn Khoo.  Aside from its catchy rhythm and smooth tune, I love the message that she's trying to imply -- that looks aren't everything

Don't just aspire to be eye-candy because having a mind of your own is a valuable asset that will never fade.



Song to Barbie
Bevlyn Khoo

Girl, you dress yourself like christmas lightings,
The fashion words that you keep spouting,
Can't you see.  I'm bored to tears.

When you flash your bags or boots so proudly,
Like you stamp your name and soul so shiny,
The glittering, don't mean a thing.

When you come by to me crying,
Not knowing how to fight life wisely,
Then you'd wish, you'd known more things.

Well, just stay on being pretty,
But read your papers daily,
All you read, will set you free.

The boys will chase the pretty,
But wits will win the witty,
So hey barbie, take your pick.

So don't just be eye-candy,
'Cause what a waste of energy.
What will shakespeare say to thee?

When time can't hold the mercy,
And we are old and wrinkly,
What's your caption, girl, what you want to see?

Yes, I love the way your eyes are batting,
And i see the fake eyelashes extending,
then we freeze, do you say a thing?

All the male accesories you're wearing,
Do you know which is the one for keeping?
A to Z, what's worth your esteem?

When you come by to me crying,
Not knowing how to fight life wisely,
Then you'd wish, you'd known more things.

Well, just stay on being pretty,
But read your papers daily,
All you read, will set you free.

The boys will chase the pretty,
But wits will win the witty,
So hey barbie, take your pick.

So don't just be eye-candy,
'Cause what a waste of energy.
What will shakespeare say to thee?

When time can't hold the mercy,
And we are old and wrinkly,
What's your caption, girl, what you want to see?

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.  J
