Lyrics

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.
So she phoned for the doctor to be quick, quick, quick.
The doctor came with his bag and hat,
And knocked at the door with a rat tat tat.

He looked at the dolly and shook his head,
And said "Miss Polly put her straight to bed".
He wrote a pad for a pill, pill, pill.
I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Miss Polly

The origin and history of this song are both unknown.

It is an old nursery rhyme about Miss Polly who had a sick doll. It has been sang to children who are ill. It has been used in the classroom in similar instances, and to help to teach rhythm and listening skills, along with rhythm recognition.

During the lyric "Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick", children can make the motion of holding and rocking a baby in their arms.

In the lyric, "So she called for the doctor ti cine quick, quick, quick", children in the class can hold their hand to their ear like a telephone and make the motion of "come here", as if to tell the doctor to come over.

In the song when the doctor knocks on the door, children should act as if they are knocking on a door to see Polly.

In the line "he looked at the dolly and shook his head", children should shake their heads while singing this.

Finally, in the song when the doctor writes a prescription for the sick dolly, children should act as if they are writing on an imaginary pad of paper and pretend to hand it to the child who is portraying Polly.

Lyrics to avoid talking about pills:

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat tat tat.

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
He said miss Polly put her straight to bed
He wrote on a paper for his bill, bill, bill
I'll be back in the morning yes I will, will, will.

This is a different version of the song. Instead of Polly the name in the song is Molly.

Miss Molly had a dolly
Who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for the doctor
To come quick, quick, quick
The doctor came
With his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door
With a rat-a-tat-tat.

He looked at the dolly
And he shook his head,
And he said 'Miss Molly,
Put her straight to bed. '
He wrote on the paper
For a pill, pill, pill
I'll be back in the morning
For the bill, bill, bill. '.

Miss Molly had a dolly
Who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for the doctor
To come quick, quick, quick
The doctor came
With his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door
With a rat-a-tat-tat.
