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.
Informant's mother taught this to her in Toledo about 1947 or 1948. She used to sing it often.
