Lyrics


Darling Little Sister

I never thought I’d have the time to tell you this.
I never thought you had a care in the world.
You see, Miss Holly’s got a picture in a little book
And she says you’re such a pretty little girl.
I returned all my dreams at the counter.
I cashed in all my pride for the sleep.
Even Luka got a name for you, mama;
He said that he could sell it to you for a small fee.

And I never meant to look when you called me.
I never meant to look at the past.
But the truth won’t hurt when you pull it off really fast.

Darling little sister, where you gonna run to now?
You hear the parade’s been passing and you got your hand stretched out.
You hear the drum line coming, and baby that won’t be long.
Oh, come on, little mama, and bring your love back home.

Little Ricky got lost on the double date,
He took the congregation with him too.
They say he’s got something special in his back pocket
Ever since he learned to tie his little shoes.
Now I’m grasping at the frame for the picture.
I’m gonna ship it overseas somewhere.
They can stamp it with a pretty little accent
Sell it to all the kids over here.

Well I never meant to be such a pushover,
I never meant to be such a tease.
And the truth won’t hurt when you tell it to me from your knees.

Darling little sister, where you gonna run to now?
You hear the parade’s been passing and you got your hand stretched out.
You hear the drum line coming, and baby that won’t be long.
Oh, come on, little mama, and bring your love back home.
