We Love You Miss Hannigan

Well, we knew a whole week in advance what the theme would be for today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. Many many songs have run through my mind on the theme of: GIRLS

Please feel free to join in the fun by posting a song of your choosing on this theme and adding a pingback to the original post from Helen Vahdati, the creator of This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time:


My choice this week is from the musical “Annie”. Miss Hannigan singing the “Little Girls“:

Little girls
Little girls
Everywhere I turn I can see them
Little girls
Little girls

Night and day
I eat, sleep and breathe them
I’m an ordinary woman
With feelings
I’d like a man to nibble on my ear
But I’ll admit no man has bit
So how come I’m the mother of the year?

Little cheeks
Little teeth
Everything around me is little
If I wring
Little necks
Surely I will get an acquittal

Some women are dripping with diamonds
Some women are dripping with pearls
Lucky me! Lucky me!
Look at what I’m dripping with

Little girls
How I hate
Little shoes
Little socks
And each little bloomer
I’d have cracked
Years ago
If it weren’t for my
Sense of humour
Some day
I’ll step on their freckles
Some night
I’ll straighten their curls
Send a flood
Send the flu
Anything that You can do
To little girls
Some day I’ll land in the nut house
With all the nuts and the squirrels
There I’ll stay
Until the prohibition of
Little girls.

Lyrics: Marin Charnin

Music: Charles Strouse


And who inspired Miss Hannagan’s wailing about LITTLE GIRLS?
