Miss Dolly Mae, Miss Dolly Mae
I want you to fix my baby’s hair for me Miss Dolly Mae, Miss Dolly Mae
I want you to fix my baby’s hair for me I want you to give her one, don’t cope wit' no curl
That would last her about two or three week
I want you to curl it in the top
And have to curls hangin' down
I want you curl in the front
And have those curls hangin' down
I know my baby’s goin' to be lookin' good
Lord, when I drive back in her town

Now Miss Dolly Mae, can curl hair
Better than anyone in her town
Miss Dolly Mae can curl hair
Better than anyone in her town
Now she have peoples comin' from Memphis
And other long distance towns around
Miss Dolly Mae, now please don’t forget
I want ya to do just what I say
Miss Dolly Mae, please don’t forget
I want ya to do just what I say
Now that I may get you to fix my baby’s hair
Miss Dolly Mae, very near ev’ryday
Fare you well, if I never see you any more
Fare you well, if I never see you any more
Well now even some sayin' about Miss Dolly Mae
Way up here in Chicago.
