G                                 D
Coin-operated boy, sitting on the shelf he is just a toy
               Am                 
But I turn him on and he comes to life
          D                         G              G/F# G [ch]G/G#[/ch]
Automatic joy, that is why I want a coin-operated boy


Am                           C 
Made of plastic and elastic, he is rugged and long-lasting
Em                          G    C
Who could ever ever ask for more
Em                           G   C C/G C/F# C/G 
Love without complications galore
Am                                      C
Many shapes and weights to choose from, I will never leave my bedroom
Em                         G    C
I will never cry at night again
Em                             G   F D
Wrap my arms around him and pretend


G                                D
Coin-operated boy, all the other real ones that I destroy
              Am                   
Cannot hold a candle to my new boy and I'll
              D          
Never let him go and I'll never be alone
And I'll never let him go and I'll never be alone, go
And I'll never be alone, go
And I'll never be alone, go
And I'll never be alone, go
                                     G
And I'll never be alone, not with my coin-operated boy


C              D          Bm            C
This verse was written to make you feel smitten-er
C           D          Bm           C
With my sad picture of girl getting bitter-er
C         D             Bm         C
Can you extract me from my plastic fantasy
C        D            Bm           C
I didn't think so but I'm still convincible
C           D         Bm      C
Will you persist even after I bet you
  C       D            Bm         C
A billion dollars that I'll never love you
    C           D         Bm      C
And will you persist even after I kiss you
    C           D              Bm          A
Goodbye for the last time will you keep on trying
   C             A         C            A
To prove it, I'm dying, to lose it, I'm losing
C              A          C          A          C      
My confidence, I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it
A           C           A           C
I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you
A           C           A           C
I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you
A
I  want a
C
I  want a
A
I  want a
C               G
I  want a       coin-operated boy

Am   C   Em   G C 
Am   C   Edim C

Am                             C
And if I had a star to wish on for my life I can't imagine
Em                               G    C
Any flesh and blood could be his match
Em                         G   F D
I can even take him in the bath

G                                D
Coin-operated boy, he may not be real experienced with girls
              Am                      
But I know he feels like a boy should feel
               D             
Isn't that the point, that is why I want a
G                                  D
Coin-operated boy, with his pretty coin-operated voice
               Am                           
Saying that he loves me, that he's thinking of me
                    D          
Straight and to the point, that is why I want a
G                
Coin-operated boy
