​Little Girl

This song is by Reba McEntire and appears on the album Sweet Sixteen (1989) and on the live album Reba Live (1989).

Daddy used to tell me
If I ran too fast, I'd fall and hurt myself
But the ice cream man would ring his bell
And I'd get there before anyone else

I'd see a puppy in the window
And I'd run and press my face against the pane
And Daddy'd say, "Slow down, girl"
After all these years, I guess nothing has changed

That little girl I knew
Ran after you
But she fell this time
And broke her heart in two
Hey, that's just like a little girl I knew

Back home there stands an old house
With a picket fence beneath a big oak tree
I can almost see the backyard
And a little girl with freckles
That was me

And there were dreams of toys and storybooks and
Lord, it seemed I wanted them so bad
Now twenty years have come and gone
And I'm still chasing things that I can't have

That little girl I knew
Ran after you
But she fell this time
And broke her heart in two
Hey, that's just like a little girl I knew

Yes, I'm still that little girl

Daddy, I still haven't slowed down yet
