Listen to Paper Doll, performed by Peter Forêt
and The Moonlight Band

An original arrangement of The Mills Brothers classic hit song.

chorus:

I’m goin’ to buy a paper doll that I can call my own
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
And then the flirty, flirty guys with the flirty, flirty eyes
Will have to flirt with dollies that are real

When I come home at night she will be waiting
She’ll be the truest doll in all this world
I’d rather have a paper doll to call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl

verse:

Well I must have had a million dolls or more
And I must have played that doll game o’er and o’er
I just quarreled with Sue
That’s why I’m blue
She’s gone away and left me like all dolls do

And I’ll tell you boys it’s tough to be alone
And it’s tough to love a doll that’s not your own
I’m through with all of them
I’ll never ball again
Hey boy what’cha gonna do
