A LITTLE GIRL AT HEART (Bob Merrill (m & l) ) As sung as released by Rosemary Clooney on a 78 rpm disk (orchestra conducted by Jimmy Carroll) Darling, even though you're grown up Please don't be afraid to own up That you're just a little boy at heart Then if you get scared inside You can just forget your pride Always run to me and hide In my arms. I'll bring sunshine to your skies Be an angel in your eyes Make you think that I am wise And very smart. And some day you may discover That you're great big grown up lover Really is a little girl at heart. (bridge) Darling, even though you're grown up Please don't be afraid to own up That you're just a little boy at heart. Then if you get scared inside You can just forget your pride Always run to me and hide In my arms. I'll bring sunshine to your skies Be an angel in your eyes Make you think that I am wise And very smart. And some day you may discover That you're great big grown up lover Really is a little girl at heart. Notes: Rosemary Clooney, Kentucky USA born, was one of America's distinguished woman singers from the 1950s forward. She also appeared in a number of films and TV specials. She performed right up until her death in 2002. Clooney started singing first with her beloved sister Betty in 1945 and advanced upward in the music industry, eventually working with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and others. Ultimately she had her own TV show. In her lifetime, she received a litany of awards for her work. Interestingly, the actor George Clooney was a nephew of hers. Bob Merrill was an American composer and lyricist. He should not be confused with Robert Merrill, the great operatic baritone who was born a few years before him. Some of his iconic hits were Patti Page's HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW Eileen Barton's IF I KNEW YOU WERE COMIN' I'D'VE HAVE BAKED A CAKE Jimmie Roger's HONEYCOMB and Streisand's PEOPLE A LITTLE GIRL AT HEART was also released as a 'B' side single on a 45 rpm disk in 1955. The 'A' side was THE KEY TO MY HEART (Transcribed by David Story- April 2014)
