The Dresden Dolls Sex Changes Lyrics

Dear Mr. and/or Mrs. sender

We’re pleased to inform you that your applications been accepted

Starting from the time you get this letter

Your life will be one never-ending

“hope you’re feeling better”

You get your choice of an aesthetic

We’ll need to chop your clock off (tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock)

It might not be what you expected

There is no money back once you’ve been ripped off

Today’s a very special day

The boys’ll murder for it but what will the neighbors say

It leaves you feeling pretty hollow

It might be nice to look at

Don’t forget you’re stuck with it tomorrow (and tomorrow, and tomorrow…)

You’re big enough to stop pretending

You’ll start to really show within a week or so

So don’t go saying it’s just come to your attention

You’ll get more than you’re asking for without the right protection

Today’s a very special day

And how you’d love to have a little thing with which to play

But love wont get you very far

Today be still your beating heart

You’ll have to keep on feeding it tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

Boys will be boys will be boys will be boys will be boys will be boys will be girls with no warning

Girls will be girls will be guys will be boys that don’t cry over toys that they use to beat girls they

Despise by the morning

They always said that sex would change you…

No second thoughts the knife is nearing

You’ll never hear the little pitter patter pitter patter

Of this little feat of engineering

Of course I love you and of course it’s what’s inside that matters

But I think the whole charade is ending

It seems to me to be the only way to keep from getting

Caught up in a long life of regretting

The doctors said that once you get a taste for it you’ll keep on cutting

But while you happen to be here

Why don’t you whisper all those sweet forevers in my ear

Stiff upper lip for all this sorrow

Hurry up and stick it in

You never know when it will end

Tomorrow or tomorrow or tomorrow…
