|F D7 G7 C7
||F ( C7 to chorus)
- 8-beat intro. Play 4-beats
for each cell, reading from left to right.
- I guess I had a million
dolls or more, I guess I've played the doll game o'er and
I just quarrelled with Sue, That's why I'm blue, She's
gone away and left me just like all dolls do.
- 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 fall again, 'Cause
this is what I'll do?
- I'm gonna buy a Paper Doll
that I can call my own, A doll that other fellows cannot
And then the flirty, flirty guys with their 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
I'd rather have a Paper Doll to call my own, Than have
a fickle-minded real live girl.
