Thank Heaven For Little Girls

  • Each time I see a little girl
    Of five or six or seven
    I can't resist a joyous urge
    To smile and say
    Thank heaven for little girls
    For little girls get
    Bigger every day
    Thank heaven for little girls
    They grow up in
    The most delightful way.
    Those little eyes
    So helpless and appealing
    When they were flashing
    Send you crashing
    Through the ceiling
    Thank heaven for little girls
    Thank heaven for them all
    No matter where,
    No matter who
    Without them
    What would little boys do
    Thank heaven
    Thank heaven
    Thank heaven for little girls. Writer/s: ALAN JAY LERNER, FREDERICK LOEWE
