Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for the doctor to come quick, quick quick
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And said "Miss Polly, put her straight to bed"
He wrote on a paper for a pill, pill, pill
"I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill".

The last line sometimes goes "I'll be back in the morning yes I will, will, will," or "That'll make her better, yes it will, will, will".

Last line DD now sings is "I'll be back in the morning, yes I will will will"


If you don't know the tune - go to Cbeebies site, and go to Tweenies songtime. Under M it should be there

We also sing Miss Molly - 'cos of DD's name!

TraceyP Mon 27-Sep-04 10:20:09

Wow, I only went to the loo. Cheers everyone.

TraceyP Mon 27-Sep-04 10:29:19

AH, but now you need the actions ...


Miss Polly had a dolly [rock an imaginary dolly] who was sick, sick, sick
So she called [dial imaginary phone] for the doctor to come quick, quick quick
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat [knock imaginary door]

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head [needs no explanation really]
And said [wag finger as if telling off dd] "Miss Polly, put her straight to bed"
He wrote on a paper [yes, write on imaginary paper with imaginary pen] for a pill, pill, pill
"I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill".

I wish I'd never asked for the words. I've got the flaming song going round and round in my head!!!!

ernest Mon 27-Sep-04 19:46:44

I always thought the doctor said "I'll be back in the morning yes I will will will"

Bit kinder than turning up brandishing a bill, but I guess that is more realistic these days

I dont get wthy on five littel ducks theya rare super ducks who can s wim OVER a hill!

codswallop Mon 27-Sep-04 19:49:04

I thought it was " wrote out a paper" ( ie script)

I bought a book of this song as it was my favourite when I was at playschool (it's about all I can remember of my pre school years!). However, I had remembered the line as

"He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And he said 'Miss Polly she will soon be dead'"

But I knew that somehow this probably wasn't the right version (or were things much tougher in the 1970s?)
