MY WUBBA DOLLY
Ella Fitzgerald


My mommy told me
If I was goody
That she would buy me
A wubba dolly

So don't you tella
I kissed a fella
Or she won't buy me
That wubba dolly

I know
I've been up to tricks
Oh-oh
I'm in a fix

I want that dolly
Indeed I do-o
But what a fella
I want him too-o

(band members:
Is it the fella or the dolly or the dolly or the
fella or the fella or the dolly for you?
Is it the fella or the dolly or the dolly or the
fella, what are you gonna do?)

I'll be a goodie
Just watch and you'll see
And she will buy me
A wubba dolly

(male voice, sounding like an imitation Louis
Armstrong:
Oh yes I'm sorry
About the dolly
Because we told her, woo-hoo
About this feller)

Boo-hoo
Oh why did you?
Oh boys
I wouldn't do it to you

Why did you tella
I kissed a fella
Now she won't buy me
A wubba dolly

(instrumental break)

(band members, with children's voices:
We didn't tella
You kissed a fella)
Oh goody-goody - and now she'll buy me
That wubba dolly

Oh look here comes my mommy
And just look what she's got me
My mammy bought me
A little bitty wubba dolly

(male voice, same as before:
She sho' did, she sho' did!)
