I WAS A GOOD LITTLE GIRL
 
div
 
When I was young and innocent you stole into my heart
You taught me things I now repent whenever we're apart
You taught me that the world was wide, a bit too wide for me
And now I am not satisfied with just a cup of tea.

Chorus: I was a good little girl
You sent my head in a whirl
My poor heart too
Oh how you told me the tale
You always do
I was a good little girl
Till I met you.


I never stayed out late at night, well, never after ten
To men I was indifferent quite until you came and then
You took me walking in the park, you talked like Romeo
And when you kissed me in the dark, poor me, I did not know.

Chorus:

So now you buy my frills and frocks, and things I dare not tell
Quite frequently I darn your socks and other things as well
I know some things I never knew in all my single life
You've taught me quite a thing or two since I became your wife.

Chorus:
