8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I've danced to many tunes that people have raved about, But here's a melody that I couldn't do with out.
The one I'm telling you of, cannot be beat, It runs around my brain and tickles my dancing feet.
It's not a jazzy tune, nor is it a symphony, Just hear it once or twice I know you'll agree,
It's most original, It's most unusual, And just as cute as it can be.
What a peculiar tune, Thrilling me night and noon, What a peculiar tune.
Has such a funny swing, It's such a catchy thing, Makin' me like a loon.
It teases me, Pleases me, It's in the air, It's evrywhere,
It's haunting me, taunting me, What a refrain, play it again,
Makin' me want to dance, Makin' me want to prance, That melody so queer.
Makin' me want to twirl, Keepin' my brain awhirl, Rhythm is all I hear.
The Doll Dance is it's name. It's gonna drive you insane,
Such a peculiar tune, You're gonna hum it soon, What a peculiar tune.
