Toy was the Israeli entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon performed by Netta Barzilai. It is a song about female empowerment.

Although sung in English, the song contains some words and phrases in Hebrew, namely "Ani lo buba" which means "I'm not a doll" and "stefa" which is a slang for wads of cash.

It qualified from the first semifinal in first place. In the final, it was performed 22nd following Hungary and preceding the Netherlands. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 529 points, giving Israel its 4th win overall and first in 20 years.

It was subsequently covered by Verka Serduchka in the 'Switch Song' interval act in the grand final of the 2019 contest.

Lyrics

(I’m not your)
(I’m not your)

Look at me, I’m a beautiful creature
I don’t care about your modern time preacher
Welcome boys to my show, I will teach ya
Drum drum ah ooh, drum drum ah ooh

Hey, I think you forgot how to play
My teddy bear’s running away
The Barbie got something to say, hey
My smartphone says leave me alone
I’m taking my Pikachu home
You’re stupid just like your smartphone

Wonder Woman don’t you ever forget
You’re divine and he’s about to regret
He’s a bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck-mhm boy
Bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck
I’m not your bucka-mhm-buck-mhm-buck-mhm

I’m not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)
I’ll take you down now, make you watch
We’re dancing with my dolls on the motha-bucka beat
Not your toy (Cululoo, cululoo, cululoo cululoo)

I-I-I-I Ani lo buba
I-I-I-I Ani lo buba

(Cululoo, cululoo) Wedding bells ringing
(Cululoo, cululoo) Money men bling-bling
I don’t care about your Stefa, baby
Drum drum ah ooh, drum drum ah ooh

Wonder Woman don’t you ever forget
You’re divine and he’s about to regret
He’s a bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck-mhm boy
Bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck
I’m not your bucka-mhm-buck-mhm-buck-mhm

I’m not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)
I’ll take you down now, make you watch
We’re dancing with my dolls on the motha-bucka beat

Not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)

I’ll t-t-t-take you now
W-w-w-with me now, boy

(I’m not your toy)
You stupid boy
I’ll take you down now, make you watch me
Dancing with my dolls on the motha-bucka beat

(I’m not your toy) Look at me, I’m a beautiful creature
(You stupid boy) I don’t care about your modern time preacher
(I’m not your toy) Not your toy, not your toy, not your toy, toy
I’m not your toy, not your toy, not your toy, toy
