2. Little Girls Are Fun

Little girls are nice
and I adore ‘em
I love their giggles
and their tears
I can’t get enough of ‘em
I know I couldn’t even
if I lived a million years
Every little girl is a challenge
The way they like to kiss and run
I don’t understand ‘em
I just love ‘em and brand ‘em
‘Cause little girls are fun

Little girls were made
for me to love ‘em
Their just as cute
as they can be
I can’t get enough of ‘em
I’m happy only in their company
Every little girl is a honey
I’d like to marry everyone
I don’t understand ‘em
I just love ‘em and brand’em
‘Cause little girls are fun

Little girls are fun
Little girls are fun
Little girls are fun
Little girls are fun

3. My Girl

I’ve got sunshine
on a cloudy day
When it’s cold outside
I got the month of May
Well, I guess you’ll say
What can make me feel this way
My girl
Talkin’ ‘bout my girl
(my girl)

I’ve got so much honey
the bees envy me
I’ve got a sweeter song
than the birds in the tree
Well, I guess you’ll say
What can make me feel this way
My girl
Talkin’ ‘bout my girl
(my girl)

I don’t need no money,
fortune or fame
I’ve got all the riches baby
one man can claim
Well, I guess you’ll say
What can make me feel this way
My girl
Talkin’ ‘bout my girl
(my girl)

(Talkin’ ‘bout)
My girl
Talkin’ ‘bout my girl (my girl)
(talkin’ ‘bout) My girl
Talkin’ ‘bout my girl

4. Mama'd Know What To Do

Take the sunshine of her smile
Add the wisdom of her heart
And in just a little while
Shadows will all depart

I learned about her
when I was small
How she’d come running
when I would fall
Even at that age
somehow I knew
Mama’d know what to do

When I was heartsick
and when I cried
Who’d always be there
right by my side
Who could I count on
to get me through
Mama’d know what to do

Take the sunshine of her smile
Add the wisdom of her heart
And in just a little while
Shadows will all depart

All of the love
that she gave to me
Will always live in my memory
My whole life long
I’ll tell myself
when things go wrong
Mama’d know what to do

Take the sunshine of her smile
Add the wisdom of her heart
And in just a little while
Shadows will all depart

All of the love
That she gave to me
Will always live
in my memory
My whole life long
I’ll tell myself
when things go wrong
Mama’d know what to do

5. Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear

Baby let me be
Your lovin teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
(Oh let‘em be)
Your teddy bear

I don’t want to be your tiger
‘Cause tigers play too rough
I don’t wanna be your lion
‘Cause lions ain’t the kind
You love, you  love enough

I just wanna be, your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
(Oh let’em be)
Your teddy bear

Baby won’t you let me be
Around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be
(Oh let’em  be)
Your teddy bear

I don’t want to be your tiger
‘Cause tigers play too rough
I don’t want to be your lion
‘Cause lions ain’t the kind
You love, you love enough

Just wanna be, your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
(Oh let’em be)
Your teddy bear

Oh let me be
(Oh let me be)
Your teddy bear

I just wanna be your teddy bear

Side Two

1. Long Haired Lover From Liverpool

I'll be your long haired
lover from Liverpool,
and I'll do anything you say.
I'll be your clown, or your puppet,
or your April Fool,
if you'll be my sunshine
daisy from L.A.

I'll be your leprechaun and
sit upon an old toad stool,
I'll serenade you till I'm old and gray.
I'll be your long haired
lover from Liverpool,
you'll be my sunshine
daisy from L.A.

You'll be my lovely daisy
on a mountainside,
there are lots of other flowers, too.
But all the other flowers
hung their heads and cried
because the loveliest of
all of them was you.

But you were evidently
the exception to the rule,
I picked you quickly then I ran away...
'Cause I'm your long haired
lover from Liverpool,
you were my sunshine
daisy from L.A.

I'll be your long haired
lover from Liverpool,
and I'll do anything you ask,
I'll be your clown, or your puppet,
or your April Fool,
cut my hair, or even wear a mask.

I'll be your Valentine,
and you'll be mine
and things will be cool.
We'll move along together every day.
I'll be your long haired lover
from Liverpool,
you'll be my sunshine
daisy from L.A. , you'll be my sunshine daisy from L.A.

2. If My Dad Were President

If my dad were President
how happy I would be
‘Cause he knows just
how it goes with personality
If my dad were President
he’d fly me to the moon
To the stars and maybe Mars
in a great big blue balloon

I got rock candy mountains
and ice cream piles galore
Toy guns and piles of horses
but never any war
Think of school
 the kids would rule
and summer all the time
All sorts of games
with funny names
and playing is no crime

If my dad were President
the world would soon agree
He’s the best and all the rest
would love him just like me

In my great big new balloon
I’d travel more and more
More buttermilk and gingerbread
and hot dogs by the score

My girl would be so close to me
and every star would play
From dusk to dawn
while hanging on the
good old milkyway
If my dad were President
he’d fly me to the moon
‘Cause he knows just how
it goes with personality

But I know it’s all a dream
and that’s okay you see
‘Cause since he’s not I’m glad I’ve got
him here at home with me
‘Cause since he’s not I’m glad I’ve got
him here at home with me

3. Tweedlee Dee

4. Mother of Mine

Mother of mine,
you gave to me
All of my life
to do as I please
I owe everything
I have to you
Mother, sweet Mother of mine

Mother of mine,
when I was young
You showed me the right
way things should be done
Without your love
where would I be
Mother, sweet Mother of mine

Mother you gave me happiness
Much more than words can say
I pray the Lord that he may bless you
Every night and every day

Mother of mine,
now I am grown
And I can walk straight
all on my own
I’d like to give you
what you gave to me
Mother, sweet Mother of mine

Mother you gave me happiness
Much more than words can say
I pray the Lord that he may bless you
Every night and every day

Mother of mine,
now I am grown
And I can walk straight
all on my own
I’d like to give you
what you gave to me
Mother, sweet Mother of mine.
Mother, sweet Mother of mine

Just a rubber ball

(Rubber ball, I’ll be
bouncin’ back to you)
