"Dolly" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler....
See my dolly she's over there, see her grooving on down
Dressed in thought she is real yeah, her real hair is what counts
Taught my baby the alphabet, abc don't let you down
Dressed in thought we are set in jet, the jet set messed us around

[Chorus:]
I'm so so down
Are you never coming round
So so down
Are you never coming round

See my dolly on three wheels yeah, see her grooving on down
Dressed in thought she is real yeah, her real hair is what counts
Bought my baby an ambulance, driving her mad around town
She'll take the hand of a lucky man, in dog shit land

[Chorus]

So so down
Are you never coming round?
Never coming round

    General CommentThe band apparently don't like this one much, but I've always loved it. 'Dolly' is one of the most comical Suede songs - not that there are many - but really... singing a tribute to a 'love doll' is pretty hilarious. "Her real hair is what counts"... This one and "My Insatiable One" have a connection; "...and he was my inflatable one" suggesting a dubious fascination of Brett's?

    I love how raw it sounds - practically a demo - and its one of the songs that truly captures their wild energy as a live band in the early years.
