Katy Perry – Mannequin Song Lyrics

About Katy Perry: Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), known professionally as Katy Perry, is an American singer, songwriter, and television judge. After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful.

Lyrics:

How do I get closer to you
When you keep it all on mute
How will I know
The right way to love you Usually the queen of figuring out
Breaking down a man is no work out
But I have no clue
How to get through to you  Oh oh oh
I wanna hit you just to see if you cry
I keep knocking on wood
Hoping there’s a real boy inside (Chorus)
‘Cause you’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel
That my love is real
But you’re not a man I wish I could just turn you on
Put a battery in and make you talk
Even pull a string
For you to say anything But with you there is no guarantee
Only expired warranty
A bunch of broken parts
And I can’t seem to find your heart Oh
I’m such a fool
I’m such a fool
I’m such a fool
This one’s outta my hands
I can’t put you back together again (Chorus) ‘Cause you’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel
That my love is real
But you’re not a man You’re just a toy
Could you ever be a real, real boy
And understand
But you’re not a man If the past is the problem
Our future could solve them baby
I could bring you to life
If you let me inside baby
It’ll hurt
But in the end
You’ll be a man…. (Chorus)
