Words and Music by Mrs. Carrie Jacobs-Bond.

I've dropped Dolly, broke her head-some one tells me Dolly's dead;
Tell me, Dolly, is it true, I can no more play with you?

Dolly girl, whose eyes were blue, you're the one I love most true;
You're the one I had at first, but, just see, you look the worst:
Both eyes gone, no more you'll see, yet, sweet girl, do stay with me;
Little Dolly, don't say no; stay with me, I love you so.

Nothing left but curly hair; never mind, dear, I don't care;
I will put a veil on you; if you're covered, you will do.

Dolly girl, whose eyes were blue, I'm your friend, I will be true;
Though your face no more I'll see, how I love you; stay with me:
Should you lose your hair as well, jusl keep covered, don't you tell;
Little Dolly, don't say no; stay with me, I love you so.

Some dolls live without their eyes-yes, you wonder, with surprise.
But I know, And so do you, dolls with no heads live, 'tis true.

Dolly, girls for children poor have been made of cloth, I'm snre;
Tied-up pieces, made of rags, these called dolls, yet look like bags;
Yet for playmates they will do: lots of children say so, too;
Love them truly, yes, they do, just the same as I love you.
