Little Girl

Little girl, why are you crying?
Is everything not going fine?

Your life
Your life so far has been a dream
And your childhood a blessing;
And you have nearly everything
That a girl would want, it seem.

Little girl, why are you crying?
Are you not happy, are you not fine?

Your wishes
Your wishes have nearly all been granted
And you are given nearly everything you wanted;
Right now, another wish is coming true –
What is it that you so rue?

Have you not always wanted to
Grow up, little girl?

Cry no more, little girl -
You now have to learn to suck it up;
You now are a grown up.

Cry no more, little girl,
Cry no more;
You are now a grown up –
A little girl no more.
