Barbie Girl Lyrics

Hi Barbie
Hi Ken!
Do you wanna go for a ride?
Sure Ken!
Jump In...

I'm a barbie girl, in the barbie world
Life in plastic, it's fantastic!
you can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation
Come on Barbie,...

    This song is pretty much making fun of the idealistic Barbie that so many young girls adore and want to own and be just like.

    I've looked into it, and from everything I've read, I gather that this song is actually about a book from 1938. The book, "Angels of the New World Order: Caregivers of Deaths Manifestation", written by Archibald T. Higgs, outlines a plan by big industry to set up a domino effect of events designed to disorient and confuse a nation of non poet children drearily marching towards a destiny of servitude and slavery in factories and gray stucco suburban castlettes in order to passify them on this journey. "Barbie" is an icon of this death march and is the greatest symbol of a generations self mutilation and narcissism.

    This song is basically about the fake girls who think they're perfect and like barbie. It's also about them having sex and giving in. "kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky." hanky panky means sex.It also says bimbo and plastic quite a few times, so you can assume they are referring to the girl as a blonde, fake, dumb girl.

    Considering this one takes heavily from Video Killed the Radio Star, I really think it is somewhat a parody.

    Sure, there have been pop star swooning icons since Elvis to the Cassidy's and so on and on which the tele has contributed a tremendous amount to that "glory."

    Both the hidden humor along with the similarity to the above mentioned song really drive home that often times it is the gliz and glam that truly take away the raw beauty of real music and compounds the irrelevance of the historical impact.

    Music is very much a part of the human experience and can be linked to.the missing link in our ancestory, I believe.

    Just like a plastic barbie doll warps the minds of everyone expecting life to be real, so does the video...for the the symbolism of both deviates from what music is!

    this song is just showing how she's willingly giving herself away like she's some sex toy skank.

    From what I can tell, it's a spoof (obviously). It's saying, "As long as a guy tells you he loves you, it's okay to let him do whatever he wants to you." 'This isn't Aqua's want, more of a way to tell kids it isn't right while still letting little kids think it's just a fun song about a Barbie.

    Pretty much that's what Barbie is about though. It teaches girls and boys to be pretty/masculine and because of these reasons (and these alone) we'll be happy.

    Short version: It's okay to be a slut as long as he likes you. :3 (Don't think that this is true please! :P )

    There is nothing existential about the content of this song. It is not satire conveying the diluted youth or any of that.

    It is a fine example of how the 90s pop culture utilized the already preprogrammed mind sets of a Barbie retired generation that wants to reunite with their youth. As well as the current Barbie fan base.

    It is Aqua's only claim to fame.

    "I'm a Barbie Girl..." is just another sticky slogan of the 90s.

    I believe the song has undertones of BDSM talkignabout how she is willing to be perfectly submited to him

    Make me walk, make me talk, do whatever you please I can act like a star, I can beg on my knees Come jump in, be my friend, let us do it againHit the town, fool around, let's go party You can touch, you can playYou can say I'm always yours

    Basically this is a song about how Barbie is a really big slut and Ken is her pimp of sorts. It talks about her going on her knees, dress up in tight clothes, hanky panky, fool around with guys, "party". It's basically just saying Barbie is actually a huge slut.

    Its about about falseness and our ability to fall for tacky, trashy feelgood messages. Its also about a dirty old man enjoying his blow up dolly. In this respect is a joke, but presumably Aqua have made a lot of money out of it.

    This song is talking about the role and how women are treated in society - as a toy, something to be played with and something fake. It also talks about how girls idolize said treatment

    The melody is nice but the lyrics aren't a good example for little girls. I heard the weird al version "ugly girl". It was so funny xD

    Basically it's about barbie and how perfect she is with a perfect body, boyfriend, and life.
