Dreamer's Holiday ~ circa 1960
Kewpie Doll
 
Well I took my baby to the carnival 
an' I heard that barker yell ( Hey! Hey! )
"Come on an' win yourself a purdy Kewpie Doll, 
all you gotta do is ring the bell!"
Well I swung the hammer just as hard as I could, 
an' you should have heard the wild applause . . . ( Hooray! )
When "bong" went the bell and the man said, 
"Well, I guess the Kewpie Doll is yours!"( Yeah Yeah! )
 
I said, "Gimmie a doggie or a teddy bear 
or a high school banner for my wall,
'cause I got me a real live Kewpie Doll
an' she's the cutest one of them all!"
 
( Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! 
Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! Kew Kew Kewpie Doll!  )
 
Ah then, we walked down the midway 
'till we saw a crowd an' the man said "Try your skill,
five shots for a quarter, make a duck hit the water 
an' give your little baby a thrill"
Well, my baby smiled an' she kissed me once 
an' I felt I was nine feet tall
Oh! five shots crashed and the five ducks splashed 
an' the man gave me a Kewpie Doll! 
 
I said, "Gimmie a doggie or a teddy bear 
or a high school banner for my wall,
'cause I got me a real live Kewpie Doll
an' she's the cutest one of them all!"
 
( Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! 
Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! Kew Kew Kewpie Doll!  )
 
Ah then, my baby said, "Honey, let m try my luck 
an' knock the milk bottles off the shelf!"
You should have seen this chick, she was a dead-eye Dick 
Hey! I couldn't do it better myself!
An' then my face got red and my chest swelled up 
an' my eyes bugged outta my head
'cause when the prize turned out to be a Kewpie Doll 
this is what my baby said, SHE SAID . . . 
 
"Gimmie a doggie or a teddy bear 
or a high school banner for my wall,
'cause I got me a real live Kewpie Doll
an' he's the cutest one of them all!"
 
I said, "She's the cutest one of them all!" 
An' she's the cutest one of them all!
( Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! )
An' she's the cutest one of them all!
( Kew Kew Kewpie Doll! )
An' she's the cutest one of them all!
