Little Girl (a spoof)

Updated: Feb 20, 2022

Not too long ago, I was having this major push and pull with the little girl inside me. (Oh man, I'm not the inner child type! everything in me was screaming.) And yet, I had to face (am still trying to face) the fact that I'm going to have to somehow make peace with her existence if I ever want to get out of this rut.

And suddenly Miss Hannigan of Annie fame just started singing endlessly in my brain. Her song, with a few little changes, just summed it up!

Sing along, if you dare!

Little girl, little girl

With every move I make I can feel her

Little girl, little girl

Night and day I eat, sleep and breathe her

I’m an ordinary woman with feelings

At least so I’ve learned this past long year

And I'll admit, since this bug has bit

This little girl, she's brought me to tears

A little heart, little eyes

The mirror even shows that I’m little

But if I stuff my ears, deny it all

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… the tears of this girl

How I hate little demons, little fears

They grow with me like tumors

When I travel back to years ago

I completely lose my sense of humor

Someday I'll look in her sad eyes

Some night I’ll hold her deep pain

But now I cannot face her needs

Every time I try it’s simply in vain

Oh no - it seems I must enter the nuthouse

With all my nutty parts and some squirrel

Tucked away with my inner child

And finally dare to face…. this little girl
