Oh dear! What a beautiful Doll
My sister has bought at the fair!
She says I must cal it "Miss Poll",
And make it a bonnet to wear.
O pretty new Doll! it looks fine;
Its cheeks are all cover'd with red;
But, pray, will it always be mine?
And, pray, may I take it to bed?
How kind was my sister to buy
This Dolly, with hair that will curl!
Perhaps, if you want to know why,
She'll tell you I've been a good girl.
