"Power & Control"

"Su-Barbie-A" is a standalone song by MARINA, focused on the archetype of the perfect American housewife. The song was used as part five in The Archetypes video series released alongside Marina's sophomore album, Electra Heart. The song uses the instrumental of "Valley of the Dolls".

The audio samples "You look fantastic, hey hey hey" of the video "I Feel Fantastic" by Jon Bergeron, a viral YouTube video from 2009 and one of the most iconic videos in the Creepypasta culture. The audio also uses snippets from doll commercials (mostly because the name of the video is "Su-BARBIE-A"), and clips from The Stepford Wives (1975) to tie into the housewife theme.


Who are those great-looking dolls?
It's quick curl-Barbie and mod-hair Ken!
But what do I do with my old Barbie?

S-U-B-A-R-B-I-E-A, S-U-B-A-R-B-I-E-A
Yeah, Su-Barbie-A

If you're going to tell me you don't like this dress
I'm sticking m-m-my head right in the oven that hold me
You look fantastic, hey hey hey

The fact, it is: You'd be here expecting more
At the age that you are
Having the body that you have
Having the face shape that you have
Tell me, tell me, tell me, what you, what you...?

Now, here you are, a hot doll
Look at this hair, look at this dress
Honestly, I feel like I'm celebrating Barbie
(Fine) You dance horrible

Doll, ha ha ha!
I love your wives, They're so uh, fuzzy fuzzy cute cute!
Barbie's changed, Barbie's new and different!
The Stepfords!
I don't like tea, I like gin
Even if they don't like me, they all know me

Be who you wanna be, girl
These B-A-R-B-I-E
Tanner wants a treat!
So cute! Oh excuse us!
You potty trained Tanner, Barbie!
Barbie girl
