Lyrics verse:
I GUESS
I'VE HAD A MILLION DOLLS
OR MORE,
I GUESS
I'VE PLAYED THE DOLL GAME
OVER AND OVER,
I JUST QUARRELED 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.

Chorus:
I'M GOING TO 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.
