Polly

Ray Davies, released on single, © Davray Music/Carlin Music Corp. 1968

.

Polly wouldn't listen to her Mama,

Polly wouldn't listen to her Papa.

She tried to make the swinging city scene,

And now there's not a place that Polly hasn't been.

.

Polly, pretty pretty Pollyanna,

Pretty pretty Pollyanna,

Pretty Polly Garter

Oh, I think that pretty Polly should have stayed at home.

.

Pretty Polly, dressed as jolly as can be,

She's so darling, all the fellas do agree,

And half a million people can't be wrong,

Oh, I think that pretty Polly should have stayed at home.

.

Polly wrote a letter to her Mama,

Polly made confessions to her Papa.

Mummy's proud 'cause Polly's still in chains

She's happy now her baby's coming home again.

.

Pretty Polly, she learned that life is just a game,

She is sorry, she just had to break the chains.

And Mama knows, 'cause Mama was the same

Oh, she's happy now her baby's coming home again.

.

Polly, pretty pretty Pollyanna,

Pretty pretty pretty pretty Pollyanna,

Pretty Polly Garter

Oh, Polly, pretty pretty Pollyanna,

Pretty pretty pretty pretty Pollyanna,

Pretty Polly Garter

I think that pretty Polly should have stayed at home.
