''Originally the title of the song was ''Rag Time''. Y’know, 'Rag Time’— rags, like my scarves. But Tim Collins said ''No one will understand this''. He got Holly Knight to come up and we brainstormed for three days in Vancouver. Nothing. Finally we’re going through it again and Holly reads my lyrics— “I’m rip- pin’ up a rag doll/Like throwing away an old toy” — and she says, “Hey! Call it ‘Rag Doll.’ Along with that, and changing a few other words, I gave her credit on the song.'' - Steven Tyler
