    Lyrics

    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.
