  • Pretty Polly what have you done to your hair
    Keeping it in rollers won't get it nowhere
    Neither will it turn you into what
    Your mother prescribed when your father forgot
    Don't you think the boys could be looking at you
    After all you've got what it takes for them too
    Plus a little extra which I feel sure
    Will knock every knocker of Diana's door
    It isn't funny I know
    But what's the point me hanging around
    When all I get from seeing you
    Is browned off, browned off, browned
    Pretty Polly don't be so anxious to smile
    We don't want the male population run wild
    All we ask is will one sweet young man
    Be anxious enough to take you off my hands
