My Doll Dressed in Blue

I have a doll all dressed in blue,
With white stockings and a blue hat.
I took her to the plaza and my doll there fainted.
I took her home, and on my way the doll died.
Climb the ladder to Heaven, for I don't know how.
Count for me the steps for I don't know how to count.
Two and two are four and four and two are six.
Six and two are eight and eight are sixteen steps to heaven.
