LIITLE GIRL FROM LITTLE ROCK, A Jule Styne (m) Leo Robin (l) 1949 from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" musical 1949 New York sb Carol Channing & film 1953 sb Marilyn Monroe & Jane Russell Marilyn Monroe & Jane Russell We're just two little girls from Little Rock, We lived on the wrong side of the tracks, But the gentlemen friends who came to call, They never did seem to mind at all, They came to the wrong side if the tracks! Then someone broke my heart in Little Rock, So I upped and left the pieces there! like a little lost lamb I roamed about, I came to New York and I found out That men are the same everywhere! I was young and determined To be wined and dined and ermined, And I worked at it all around the clock! Now, one of these days, in my fancy clothes, I'm a-goin' back home and punch the nose Of the one who broke my heart, The one who broke my heart, The one who broke my heart in Little Rock, Little Rock, Little Rock, Little Rock! I'm just a little girl from Little Rock, A horse used to be my closest pal! Though I never did learn to read or write, I learned about love in the pale moonlight, And now I'm an educated gal! I learned an awful lot in Little Rock, And here's some advice I'd like to share; Find a gentleman who is shy or bold, Or short or tall, or young or old, As long as the guy's a millionaire! For a kid from a small street, I did very well on Wall Street, Though I never owned a share or stock! And now that I'm known in the biggest banks, I'm a-goin' back home to give my thanks To the one who broke my heart, The one who broke my heart, The one who broke my heart In Little Rock!
