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

woodpops Mon 27-Sep-04 10:25:14

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

codswallop Mon 27-Sep-04 19:48:48

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)

fisil Mon 27-Sep-04 19:51:54

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?)

codswallop Mon 27-Sep-04 19:52:28

how old is she?

KatieMac Mon 27-Sep-04 20:09:54

The five little duck went swimming one day over the DAM and far away......

codswallop Mon 27-Sep-04 20:10:47

even more amazing!

nikkim Mon 27-Sep-04 23:13:48

while we are on the topic does anyone know the words to
Horsey Horsey don't you stop...

keep starting it with dd and then realising I don't know it!!

tiptop Mon 27-Sep-04 23:21:59

Horsey, horsey, don't you stop,
let your little feet go clickety clop,
let your tail go swish and your wheels go round,
gee gee up, we're homeward bound!

I think!

Fran1 Mon 27-Sep-04 23:22:37

Horsey Horsey don't you stop,
Just let your hooves go clippety clop,
Your wheels go round and your .................
Giddey up its homeward trot

Thats what i sing and i have to hum to fill in the gap!!
I'm sure someone else will know the proper version

Fran1 Mon 27-Sep-04 23:23:14

LOL posts crossed, and tip tops version looks much better than mine

Hulababy Tue 28-Sep-04 15:08:09

Our version is:

Horsey Horsey, don't you stop
Just let your feet go clippitity clop
Yours tail goes swish and your wheels go round
Giddy up, we're homeward bound

We ain't in a hurry, we ain't in a flurry
So don't go tearing down the road
We ain't in a hustle, we ain't in a bustle
And we ain't go a very heavy load

So....

(Repeat first verse again)

codswallop Tue 28-Sep-04 15:11:58

how odl is the horse then
i reckon miss polly about 48

Hulababy Tue 28-Sep-04 15:14:19

48, with a baby? Possible I guess but I'd have had her more in mid to late 20s, maybe early 30s TBH.

nellyk Wed 20-Oct-04 07:36:13

does anyone know the words to a song about horseys, that goes something something

"... just like an Indian rajah"

I can't find the whole lyrics in any book I've come across maybe it's not PC anymore?

codswallop Wed 20-Oct-04 07:42:47

"Rumpety-bumpety-bumpety-bump
Here comes the galloping major
Rumpety-bumpety-bumpety-bump
Just like an Indian rajah"

WigWamBam Wed 20-Oct-04 08:29:57

Rumpety-bumpety-bumpety-bump
Here comes the galloping major
Rumpety-bumpety-bumpety-bump
Just like an Indian rajah

All the girls declare
He’s a grand old stager
Rumpety-bumpety-bumpety-bump
Here comes the galloping major!

Hausfrau Wed 20-Oct-04 08:44:24

another 2nd verse of Horsey Horsey

Horsey, Horsey we're on our way
we've done this journey many a day
yor tail goes swish and your wheels go round
Giddy up we're homeward bound

Miss Polly

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
He 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.

Miss Polly’s other dolly had a pain pain pain
The doctor had to come again gain gain
Where does it hurt
In your foot or your ear
Dolly said my tummy hurts here here here
He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
He said, 'Miss Polly put her straight to bed'
He gave her some pink stuff
And before too long
Dolly’s tummy ache was gone gone gone

Miss Polly’s little teddy felt sore sore sore
The doctor had to come once more more more
Where does it hurt
In your knees or your toes
Teddy said I’m blocked in my nose nose nose
He looked at the teddy and he gave a smile
He said, 'Miss Polly he’ll be fine in a while
Tuck him up nicely with a glass of warm honey
Soon Teddy’s nose will be runny runny runny

Miss Polly had a Dolly

Miss Polly had a Dolly that was sick, sick, sick
So she phoned 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 he said, Miss Polly, put her straight to bed.
He wrote on his paper for a pill, pill, pill.
I’ll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill.

Miss Polly's little dolly soon got out of bed,
So she called out the doctor and she said, said, said,
I don't think that dolly really was that ill,
So I don’t think that I’m going to pay your bill.

The doctor was angry and he said look here,
If you waste my time, then you must pay, I fear.
Miss Polly went as pale as a ghost, ghost, ghost,
And said I’ll put a cheque into the post, post, post.

Hope that helps smile
