Bubby`s Doll:
Well one day mamma told me it was time
We’d finally leave this place far behind
But papa couldn’t come along
‘Cause he was big and strong
And the wind it carried on
Its saddest song

We knew that it was time for us to leave
Papa would be brave and we’d be free
And ‘cause he knew how it would be
‘Fore the ship had left to sea
Papa gave me a little doll to take with me

She was the prettiest doll I’d ever seen
And when I held her tight she reminded me
That Papa said, before you go
Don’t you know I love you so
With every passing day, with every tear
I’d hold her close, I’d keep her near
‘Cause Papa said, before you go
You’re in my heart and in my soul.
And though now I don’t know when,
I know someday we’ll be together
Again

Well one day sitting on the deck at the bow
I held my doll but lost my grip somehow
And when she fell from my arms
I knew she won’t be saved
And I watched her slowly
Sink beneath the waves

She was the prettiest doll I’d ever seen
And when I held her tight she reminded me
That Papa said, before you go
Don’t you know I love you so
With every passing day, with every tear
I’d hold her close, I’d keep her near
‘Cause Papa said, before you go
You’re in my heart and in my soul.
And though now I don’t know when,
I know someday we’ll be together
Again

Well someday came and someday went
Papa’s arrival felt heaven sent
And finally we were safe and sound
And life went on as life goes on
And we found a way to carry on
But my little doll still sank beneath the waves

But then one day I looked and I could see
Sitting there in front of me
My little girl and little boy
She had a doll he had a toy
And our family grew with each passing day
And soon my grandchildren would come to play
And they would ask me why
I loved every doll I’d buy
And they listen as I told
About the prettiest doll a girl had ever known

‘Cause she was the prettiest doll I’d ever seen
And when I held her tight she reminded me
That Papa said, before you go
Don’t you know I love you so
With every passing day, with every tear
I’d hold her close, I’d keep her near
‘Cause Papa said, before you go
You’re in my heart and in my soul.
And though now I don’t know when,
I know someday we’ll be together again

And someday we`ll be together again
