Did You Evah?


American Character's 10 1/2-inch Toni doll was due to have some fun. With the reissuing of Tonner's Little Miss Revlon, Dolldom decided to give the smaller set the opportunity to show what made them so popular in the late 50s, this time around dressed by Retros, purveyors of the very best in cocktail wear. Accompanied by Vogue's Jeff, two Toni gals enjoy a cocktail of happiness or two to the tune of Cole Porter's "Did You Evah?" sung by Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop.


MIKE:
I have heard among this clan,
You are called a forgotten man.

DEXTER:
Is that what they're sayin'?
Well, did you evah!
What a swell party this is!

MIKE:
And have you heard the story of
A boy, a girl, unrequited love?

DEXTER:
Sounds like pure soap opera!

MIKE:
I may cry!

DEXTER:
What a swell party this is!
What frills, what frocks!

MIKE:
What broads!

DEXTER:
What furs, what rocks!

MIKE:
They're beautiful!

DEXTER:
Why, I've never seen such gaiety!

MIKE:
Neither did I!

DEXTER:
It's all just too, too swellegant!

MIKE:
This French champagne...

DEXTER:
Domestic!

MIKE and DEXTER:
So good for the brain!

MIKE:
That's what I was gonna say!

DEXTER:
You know you're a brilliant fellow?

MIKE:
Thank you!
 
MIKE:
Have you heard that Mimsy Starr...

DEXTER:
Oh, what now?

MIKE:
She got pinched in the Astor Bar!

DEXTER:
Sauced again, hey!
Well, did you evah?

MIKE and DEXTER:
What a swell party this is!

MIKE:
It's great!

DEXTER:
Ah, it's great!

MIKE:
It's grand!

DEXTER:
So grand!

DEXTER and MIKE:
It's wonderland!

DEXTER and MIKE:
Have you heard?
It's in the stars
Next July, we collide with Mars.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party, swell party, swellegant, elegant party this is!
