William's Doll Lyrics - Free To Be...you And Me - Marlo Thomas & Friends

When my friend William was five years old 

He wanted a doll, to hug and hold 

"A doll," said William, "is what I need 

To wash and clean, and dress and feed 

 

"A Doll to give a bottle to 

And put to bed when day is through 

And any time my doll gets ill 

I'll take good care of it," said my friend Bill 

 

A doll, a doll, William wants a doll 

Don't be a sissy said his best friend Ed 

Why should a boy want to play with a doll 

Dolls are for girls said his cousin Fred 

Don't be a jerk, said his older brother 

"I know what to do," said his father to his mother 

 

So his father bought him a basketball 

A badminton set, and that's not all 

A bag of marbles, a baseball glove 

And all the things a boy would love 

 

And Bill was good at every game 

Enjoyed them all, but all the same 

When Billy's father praised his skill 

"Can I please have a doll now," said my friend Bill 

 

A doll, a doll, William wants a doll 

A doll, a doll, William wants a doll 

 

Then William's grandma arrived one day 

And wanted to know what he liked to play 

And Bill said, "Baseball's my favorite game 

I like to play, but all the same 

 

"I'd give my bat and ball and glove 

To have a doll that I could love" 

"How very wise," his grandma said 

Said Bill, "but everyone says this instead" 

 

A doll, a doll, William wants a doll 

A doll, a doll, William wants a doll 

 

So William's grandma, as I've been told 

Bought William a doll, to hug and hold 

And William's father began to frown 

But grandma smiled, and calmed him down 

 

Explaining, William wants a doll 

So when he has a baby someday 

He'll know how to dress it, put diapers on double 

And gently caress it to bring up a bubble 

And care for his baby as every good father 

Should learn to do 

 

William has a doll, William has a doll 

'Cause someday he is gonna be a father, too
