Reba Mcentire — Little Girl lyrics

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
An 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
Ain't that just like a little girl
I knew
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/reba-mcentire-little-girl-lyrics.html ]
Back home there stands an old house
With a picket fence
Beneath a big ol' tree
I can almost see the backyard
And the little girl with freckles
That was me

There were dreams of toys and storybooks
And lord it seemed I wanted them so bad
Well twenty years have come and gone
And I'm still chasin' 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
Ain't that just like a little girl
I knew

Guess I'm still that little girl
Daddy I still haven't learned to slow down yet
