Lit - tle pain - ted la - dy with your love - ly clothes,  Where are you bound for, may I ask?
What your dia - monds cost you, Ev -'ry - bod - y knows.  All the world can see be - hind your mask.
All dolled up in glad rags,  To - mor - row may turn to sad rags,
They call you Glad Rag Doll.
Ad - mir - ed, de - sir - ed,  By lov - ers who soon grow tir - ed,
Poor lit - tle Glad Rag Doll.
You're just a pret - ty toy they like to play with;
You're not the kind they choose to grow old and gray with,
Don't make this the end dear,  It's nev - er too late to mend, dear,
Poor lit - tle Glad Rag Doll.
