I want a little girl, she may not look like the kind in a story book, But if she can cook she'll suit me to a tee! She doesn't have to wave her hand, Or dress in fancy clothes, And I wouldn't even care If she didn't wear none at all! I want a little girl to have a lot, I would give her anything I've got For a little girl to fall in love with me. She doesn't have to wave her hand, Or dress in fancy clothes, And I wouldn't even care If she didn't wear silken hose! I want a little girl to have a lot, I would give her anything I've got For a little girl to fall in love with me. (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2009)
