Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across, you turn 'em don't be slow
Now chain 'em back and turn the girl you know
You join your hands and make a ring
Circle left and hear me sing
Allemande left the corner, then you dosado your own
Gents star by the left, she will be waiting
You'll swing the sweetest girl in all the world, and promenade
I'd rather have a paper doll that I can call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two couples forward, come on back, star thru
Square thru 3/4 round, your corner swing
You swing that lady round and round,
Allemande left and weave the town
You weave it in and out around you go
When you meet that girl you dosado her
Left allemande, come back and promenade
I'd rather have a paper doll that I can call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl

Paper Doll
 
 

I'm gonna buy a Paper Doll that I can call my own
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
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 world
I'd rather have a Paper Doll to call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl

I guess I had a million dolls or more
I guess I've played the doll game o'er and o'er
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 ball again
Say boy, whatcha gonna do?

I'm gonna buy a Paper Doll that I can call my own
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
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 world
I'd rather have a Paper Doll to call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl

Lyrics by Johnny S. Black.
Recorded by The Mills Brothers (1942).
