  • Well, all I want is a party doll
    To come along with me when I'm feelin' wild
    To be everlovin' and true and fair
    To run her fingers through my hair

    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    I'll make love to you, to you
    I'll make love to you

    Well, I saw a gal walkin' down the street
    The kind of a gal I would love to meet
    She had blonde hair and eyes of blue
    Baby, I'm a-gonna have a party with you

    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    I'll make love to you, to you
    I'll make love to you

    Ev'ry man has gotta have a party doll
    To be with him when he's feelin' wild
    To be everlovin', true, and fair
    To run her fingers through his hair
    To run her fingers through his hair

    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    I'll make love to you, to you
    I'll make love to you

    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    Come along and be my party doll
    I'll make love to you, to you
    I'll make love to you
    Ooh
    Ooh

  • Barry from Sauquoit, Ny"When our schools and centers stoop to such things as Rock And Roll tribal rhythms, they are failing seriously in their duty"...
    On March 3rd 1957, the above words were uttered by Samuel Cardinal Stritch of Chicago, and at that time he also banned any form of Rock and Roll {music and/or dance} from the diocese's Catholic schools.
    At the time there was only four so-called rock related songs on Billboard's Top 20 chart; "Party Doll" by Buddy Knox at #13, "Blue Monday" by Fats Domino at #14, "Love Is Strange" by Mickey & Sylvia at #15, and Steve Lawrence's cover version of "Party Doll" was #20.
