  • Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll
    Got to do my best to please her just 'cause she's a livin' doll
    Got a roamin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul
    Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' doll

    Take a look at her hair, it's real
    If you don't believe what I say, just feel
    I'm gonna lock her up in a trunk so no big hunk
    Can steal her away from me

    Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll
    Got to do my best to please her just 'cause she's a livin' doll
    Got a roamin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul
    Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' doll

    Take a look at her hair, it's real
    If you don't believe what I say, just feel
    I'm gonna lock her up in a trunk so no big hunk
    Can steal her away from me

    Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll
    Got to do my best to please her just 'cause she's a livin' doll
    Got a roamin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul
    Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' dollWriter/s: Lionel Bart
