Polly, sometimes mislabeled as Pretty Polly, is a song by British rock group The Kinks. It was released as the B-side of their 1968 single "Wonderboy".[1] "Wonderboy" peaked at number 36 on the UK Singles Charts, becoming the first major Kinks single since 1964 to be a relative commercial failure. It also peaked at number six in The Netherlands.[2]

"Polly" later appeared as a bonus track on the 1998 and 2004 CD reissues of Something Else by The Kinks.[1]
