At first listen I thought, holy shit, he said "balls."

On second (and umpteen subsequent listens), it sounds to me like they overdubbed "dolls" and "toys" at the same time, but only said "boys" and not "balls" on the other side of the line.

"you should be here"

You should be HOME...

Some old angelfire website gives it as dolls/heart, which is obviously wrong. I hear dolls/baws (i.e. Scottish prnunciation of balls).

Love this band, their concept album "Violation" is better than any Kiss album

Had no idea these guys were known for anything other than "Cherry Baby" and being fronted by Rex Smith's bro.

Why did all these 70s/80s rock bands sing about teenage girls??

You have to ask?

Contemporary bands more self-conscious about blowing their own cover

six years pass...

According to the book I'm reading about 70s rock, They Just Seem a Little Weird, the rhyming lyrics are "dolls" and "balls".
Glad to settle this seven-year debate.
