Doll

I once had a pretty doll
Her big eyes and lips in a bow
Painted so pretty her used to grow
A present from mummy a long time ago
I loved her and dress her and took her to tea
Bounced her and cuddle her upon my knee
We used to go for walks mother and me
and take her with us down by the sea

But i lost my doll by the brook one day
I cried for a week
But the pain wouldn’t go away
Down to the stream to look everyday

Years later i was walking by the brook
And i had to take one last look
Lying there in a bed of tangle hair
Was my dearest dolly fair

But i lost my doll by the brook one day
I cried for a week
But the pain wouldn’t go a way
Down to the stream to look everyday
Now my dolly here to stay
Now my dolly here to stay
