I

Whose dolly is you?
Dearie me! I declare
Your eyes are tipped up and they've pulled out your hair,
And your snub little nose, and your fingers and toes
And your curious clo'es
Kind of frighten me, too!
Whose dolly is you?

II

Whose dolly is you?
Dearie me! Can it be
They are tired of dollies, 'way over the sea?
Does nobody care for a baby  out there,
But cuddles a bear
Or a doggie or two?
Whose dolly is you?

III

Whose dolly is you?
Did they send you to me
'Cause they know I'm as lonesome as lonesome can be?
I'd like to have dollies like me, for a while
But I've gone out of style--
I'm nobody's, too!
Whose dolly is you?
