Little girl, little girl,
Growing up takes a short while
That feels like a long while for
A little girl, little girl —
Enjoy your Circus Days of
Kaleidoscope legs,
Carefree laughs and
Careless motion,
Trapeze swinging and
Trampoline tumbling,
Disco dancing and
Hula-hooping,
Juice box juggling
And grandpa taming.

The Big Top leaves town
Before you know it
And you will be
A big girl, a big girl —
Growing up,
Leaving home,
Grandpa left
Wondering
Where’s my
Little girl, little girl?
