“Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny” By Dolly Parton

"Makin' Fun Ain't Funny" available with Dolly Parton's "Coat of Many Colors"

Dolly Parton includes a new song, “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny” with the newly released version of her children’s book, “Coat of Many Colors.”

An exclusive download of “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny” is included with the purchase of Dolly’s picture book, “Coat of Many Colors” with all-new illustrations by Brooke Boynton Hughes from Grosset & Dunlap, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers.

The handmade, patchwork coat which once kept a little school girl warm has woven its way into the hearts and lives of countless Dolly Parton fans. Now, it has inspired another original song with an equally strong anti-bullying message.


An earlier version of Dolly’s book, “Coat of Many Colors” has been used by educators to teach children about bullying in schools. In this new song, Dolly appeals to anyone who may be tempted to hurt others with words or actions encouraging them to make the right choice.

All proceeds from the book’s sales will benefit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. To purchase a copy, use this link – “Coat of Many Colors
