Eddy Arnold - "Little Girls and Little Boys" lyrics

(Bob Tubert)

Often cry over broken toys
Little girls and little boys
But tears which fall like gentle rain
Little girls and little boys
Wash away the hurt and pain.
They learn that life's a hurting game

When they grow older change their toys
But never know who's to blame.
No more a child is the saddest line

No more can they wash away the fears.
Ever written in the sands of time

No matter how heavy the tide of tears
Try but can't go back again
Pretty women grown up men
And they're lost like all the toys
They had as little girls and boys.

(Everything's lost like all the toys)
They had as little girls and boys...
