Goodbye Dolly

He’s been my little baby doll
Since the birthday that I turned two.
Back then he had all of his hair;
I hugged him and I named him Sue.

Tonight, before I went to bed,
I threw my little doll away.
I threw him in the garbage pail
And told him he would have to stay.

Listen, did you hear him whimper
Or was that me that I heard cry
When I knelt there beside the pail
So I could say my last goodbye?

Mother said I should be brave
But Dad just sadly shook his head.
Mom always kisses me goodnight
And Daddy tucks me into bed.

Tonight he whispered in my ear,
That he was proud as he could be,
And maybe now my college friends
Would all stop making fun of me!
