Baby Doll House is an unreleased track recorded on 28 September 1986, at Prince’s Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (recorded in sequence with One and Two, the day before Three, Four and Five).

The track is based around a sample of Susannah Melvoin speaking the phrase "baby doll house". The same sample was later used in the Madhouse track Eleven.

It is not known if the track was considered for use on the Madhouse album 8, and it is likely the title would have been changed had it been used. The track remains unreleased.
