Ba Ba Ba
Ornaments of Life, ornaments of life
There's your brand new car, sir, here's your hat and gloves
There's your pretty wife, sir, whom you almost love

There's your color TV set and your impressive pad
There's your little baby girl you're almost glad you had
Such a pretty dress, miss, such a graceful walk
Bubbling femininity, authoritative talk
There's your man he's prominent; treats you like a queen
All your little secrets kept, your reputations clean
The proper ornaments of life.

Gotta have status
Have a paid vacation,
Have an intellectual education
Ornaments of life
Proper ornaments of life

Fur coats, jewels and laces,
bright red lipstick, big cars, money, tuxes and top hats
Hide behind the mask of clothes and makeup: ornaments
There's your brand new car, sir, here's your hat and gloves
There's your pretty wife, sir, whom you almost love
There's your color TV set and your impressive pad
There's your little baby girl you're almost glad you had

What's behind that countenance
What's behind the lace,
What is in your mind and heart
That's hidden by your face
Behind the ornaments in your life?

Ba, ba, ba.
