Honey dear, Want you near, Just turn out the light and then come over here;
Nestle close, Up to my side,
My heart's a fire, With love's desire.
In my arms rest complete, I never thought that life could ever be so sweet
'Till I met you, some time ago,
But now you know, I love you so.
Oh! you beautiful doll, You great big beautiful doll!
Let me put my arms about you, I could never live without you.
Oh! you beautiful doll, You great big beautiful doll!
If you ever leave me, how my heart will ache, I want to hug you but I fear you'd break,
Oh! oh! oh! oh! Oh! you beautiful doll!
