As you keep trying to spin me
aroundandaroundandaround,
just give me an explanation

I want to be what you need:
I need to be what you want

But I am incapable,
a jack-in-the-box that won't pop;
a top that refuses to spin

So, you turn my handle
overandoverandover
and spin me around

Trying to force me into working.
If you could just subjugate me,
maybe I'd be worth the effort.

Don't you know I'm trying?
I don't want to disappoint.
I need to be your princess doll.

Please, just tell me my mistakes;
let me read the instructions
so I know what to do.

I want to be what you need:
I need to be what you want
