Please help me find what song this is!

It was described to me as "a girl singing in a whinning voice asking for a doll for christmas"

My co-worker's daughter wants the CD but doesn't remember the artist. I was thought I (okay, YOU) could help. I've tried searching everywhere but have no clue.

Thanks.

Hmm, and it's not "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas"?

Is it a recent song?

My first thought was "Santa Baby" by Madonna from the Very Special Christmas album. She has a whiny voice in that song, but I checked the lyrics and she doesn't ask for a doll. Hmmm...

BTW, why does she want it now? Does she have her holidays mixed up?

Is it an old comedy song?

"The Pretty Little Dolly can plead.
The Pretty Little Dolly can beg.
and she screams in realistic pain when you break her leg!

Heavy drinking,
gets her stinking.
On her back you can turn a key
and she goes through puberty!"


"The Pretty Little Dolly" by Mona Abboud

What station did she hear the song on?

Was it recently or over the holidays?

Can you provide a few more lyrics?

I'm thinking this will go to Jessica Simpson, Xtina Aquilera or No Doubt.

I'm just as confused.

It seems that this was heard on B96 here in chicago and yes it was a holiday song. Why she wants this now is beyond me. Thanks for all your help. Some additional lyrics are something along the line of being extremely upset and she would do mean things if she did not get this doll.
