Lyrics
Written by: Patti Scialfa

Baby take a walk in toy land
Be my hero play the part
I'm falling down hard from salvation
Come protect this china heart
Though my party dress is torn
I still walk and talk and cry and crawl
And I've got no one on my arm
Well I am just a rumble doll

Now some girls are just born lucky
Yeah they're lucky that's for sure
Well in my soul I've never felt that clean though I
I know my heart is pure
Sometimes I feel like I know too much - and
Sometimes I feel like I don't know nothing at all
But I can still be soft to the touch
Well I am just a rumble doll

Now I don't know how to unlock the door
To those forgiving words - no I
I just don't understand
'Cause every time I try to turn that key
It leaves a dark stain in my hand
So measure my intentions against my sins
And if you think my name it should be called
I'll be on the outside somewhere looking in
Well I am just a rumble
I am just a rumble
Well I am just a rumble doll

So baby take a walk in toy land
Be my hero play the part
I'm falling down hard from salvation
Come protect this china heart
