Catterwalling and wailing,
screamin loud at me.
I can take 'bout anything,
except her misery.

I am not her slaveboy,
scapegoat or dog.
Trashy mouth from the South
go back to your bog.

Fine China and whiskey,
somethings just don't mix.
Everytime she has too much
she does her plate throwing tricks.

Double wide trailer,
she was born and raised.
Beautiful as a Barbie Doll,
but cut's like a razor blade.

Penthouse apartment
at the top of L.A.,
looking down at that town
just makes her crazy.

Taken from her family
when she was just a kid,
She had a voice, but had no choice
in doing what they did.

They wanted her to be rich
live the life of a star.
She went and made millions,
but that only goes so far.

Starlets and Bankers,
all on the carpet of love.
Put her flesh in the sidewalk
and never rise above.

Doomed to be beautiful,
talented and unwise.
She made some stupid choices
and broke some valuable ties.

Now she's in her penthouse
sitting all alone.
Except for me, pills and whiskey,
and the sound of the ringing phone.

I have always been there
and never had a say.
Always watching everything
each and everyday.

I'm not her guardian angel,
lover or a friend.
I'm just a toy,
her bear named Roy.
I'll be here till the end.

Joseph Wraith
