Step lightly, step quickly

Step lightly, step quickly
Bring Polly back a cookie
Papa won’t know
‘Cause we won’t tell
Mama’s too busy
She won’t care
Step lightly, step quickly
Oh, how pretty blue looks on you
Step lightly, step quickly
Bring Polly back a cookie
Step quietly, quietly
So papa won’t hear
Step quietly, quietly
So mama won’t know
Step quietly, quietly
Bring Polly back a cookie
The basset hound loves you
He lies at your side
Drooping eyes and ears
Step lightly, step quickly
Bring Polly back a cookie
The water will dry
The crimson won’t stain
Step lightly, step quietly
Bring Polly back a cookie
To the loft, in the barn
Lying cold and blue
Step lightly, step quickly
Step quietly, quietly
Step lightly, step quickly
Bring Polly back a cookie.
