Miss Polly Had a Dolly
Traditional Children's Song

This song, along with an instrumental version is available on 
Teaching English Through Songs and Games


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 he said “Miss Polly, put her straight to bed!”
He wrote on a paper for some pills, pills, pills
“I’ll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill.”



Pretend to be holding a rocking a baby

Hold a phone to your ear and make the “come here” motion with either your finger or your hand.
Hold a bag and touch your hand to your head to indicate a hat.

Make a knocking motion.

Shake your head.

Shake your finger at “Miss Polly” as though
reprimanding her.
Write with an imaginary pencil on your palm.
Hold the same paper out on the words “bill, bill, bill”.
