You see that little
porcelain doll
way up high
on that tall shelf?

Her eyes are glassy
as if to see
the future
that is such a mystery

Her hair is perfect
kept locked tight
her lips are small
blood red against her pale face

Many people
stop to gaze
upon this girl
that looks so mysterious
in that glass box

There is a sign
below the box
"Please don't touch"
she's precious to someone

And I hear a little girl
tell her mother in truth
that the dolly looks sad
in that glass cage.
