Well, I took my
Baby to the carnival
And I heard that barker yell
(Hey, hey)

Come on and win yourself
A pretty kewpie doll
All you gotta do is ring the bell

Well, I swung the hammer
Just as hard as I could
And you should've heard
The wild applause (hurray)

When bong went the bell
And the man said, well
I guess the kewpie doll is yours
(Yeah, yeah)

(CHORUS)
I said, give me a doggie or a teddy bear
Or a high school banner for my wall
Cause I got me a real live kewpie doll
And she's the cutest one of them all

(Kew, kew, kewpie doll
Kew, kew, kewpie doll...)

Then we walked down the midway
Til we saw a crowd
And the man said try your skill

Five shots for a quarter
Make a duck hit the water
And give your little baby a thrill

Well, my baby smiled
And she kissed me once
And I felt I was nine feet tall

Oh, five shots crashed
And five ducks splashed
And the man gave me
A kewpie doll

(CHORUS)

(Kew, kew, kewpie doll
Kew, kew, kewpie doll...)

Then my baby said
Honey, let me try my luck
And knock the milk bottles
Off of the shelf

You should've seen this chick
She was a deadeye dick
Hey, I couldn't do better myself

And then my face got red
And my chest swelled up
And my eyes bugged
Outta my head

Cause when the prize turned out
To be a kewpie doll
This is what my baby said

She said, give me
A doggie or a teddy bear
Or a high school banner for my wall
Cause I got me a real live kewpie doll
And he's the cutest one of them all

I said she's the cutest one of them all
She's the cutest one of them all
She's the cutest one of them all
