Hank Thompson Paper Doll Lyrics

Writer Johnny Black


I'm gonna buy a paper doll to call my own
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
And then those 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 the 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 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
Say boy, whatcha gonna do?

Repeat Chorus
