Little girl, little girl,
Growing up takes a short while
That feels like a long while for 
A little girl, little girl — 
Enjoy your Circus Days of
Kaleidoscope legs,
Carefree laughs and 
Careless motion,
Trapeze swinging and
Trampoline tumbling,
Disco dancing and 
Juice box juggling
And grandpa taming.

The Big Top leaves town
Before you know it
And you will be 
A big girl, a big girl —
Growing up,
Leaving home,
Grandpa left 
Where’s my 
Little girl, little girl?
