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.
