It is time for another episode of You’re So Vain! Weeeee!! Today we have a lovely tune from The Mills Brothers called “Paper Doll”
I guess I had a million dolls or more
I guess I’ve played the doll game o’er and o’er
I just quarreled with Sue, that’s why I’m blue
She’s gone away and left me just like all dolls do
If you are unfamiliar with this group than you are missing out. Go get a greatest hits collection IMMEDIATELY, don’t make me smack you.
This video made ME want a paper doll of my own, mostly because I could always use more friends and as an extremely short person I would find it amusing to be a GIANT and supreme being over my paper doll minions. (also go watch Time Bandits now that I think about it – cause SUPREME BEING). I found some amazing paper doll resources online to get your own to:
Lots of vintage and reproduction paper dolls – I will FIGHT you for this Carol Channing paper doll set! Go There! Buy Stuff!
The Paper Doll Collector – Blog – There are some very cool vintage and handmade paper dolls on this blog. I can already see another hobby I do not need forming. DANGER
