  • LITTLE ANNIE MCCAY

    AT THE END OF THE STREET LIVES LITTLE ANNIE MCCAY
    SHE'S ABOUT 5 1/2, GIVE OR TAKE A DAY
    SHE'S FRECKLED & BLONDE WITH APPLE GREEN EYES
    SHE'S VERY CUTE BUT SLIGHTLY SMALL IN SIZE

    SHE'S OFTEN OUTSIDE, WITH JUMP ROPE AND JACKS
    WALKING HOUSE TO HOUSE AROUND THE CUL-DE-SAC
    'CAN YOU COME OUT TO PLAY?' SHE'D ASK DOOR TO DOOR
    SADLY SHE'D SIGH, 'NO ONE PLAYS ANYMORE'

    'I DON'T UNDERSTAND. IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME?
    I'M ALWAYS HAPPY AND I EASILY AGREE
    I'M THOUGHTFUL & KIND, AND I'M TOLD THAT I'M BRIGHT
    I DON'T UNDERSTAND...IT MUST BE MY HEIGHT!

    IT'S BECAUSE I AM SMALL THAT NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY
    'YOU'RE MUCH TO LITTLE!' THEY WOULD OFTEN SAY
    'BUT WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE MYSELF GROW?
    I'M TOLD THAT I DO, BUT IT'S MUCH TOO SLOW!'

    SHE TRIED TO STRETCH BY SWINGING FROM A TREE
    BUT OF COURSE YOU KNOW, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE
    FOR 3 MORE INCHES, SHE'D WEAR HER MOM'S SHOES
    BUT SHE OFTEN FELL DOWN GETTING A SCRAPE OR A BRUISE

    AS EVERYDAY WENT BY, SHE'D TRY SOMETHING NEW
    BUT SHE FINALLY GAVE UP. THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT SHE COULD DO
    SHE STOPPED PLAYING JACKS AND SHE STOPPED SKIPPING ROPE
    SHE NO LONGER LOOKED FOR FRIENDS, AND SHE STOPPED HAVING HOPE

    LITTLE ANNIE MCCAY WAS NOW A LONELY LITTLE GIRL
    HER SAD FACE LOST SOME FRECKLE AND HER HAIR LOST SOME CURL
    SHE DIDN'T SEEM LIKE HERSELF, THE LITTLE ANNIE WE ALL KNEW
    SHE WAS SO BUSY BEING UPSET, SHE DIDN'T REALIZE SHE GREW!

    IT WAS ONLY A LITTLE, EVEN LESS THEN AN INCH
    SUCH A SMALL AMOUNT THAT YOU COULDN'T PINCH
    NO ONE COULD SEE IT FROM ONLY A GLANCE
    THERE WAS NO VISIBLE GROWTH IN HER SHIRT OR HER PANTS

    BUT SHE KNEW INSIDE THAT SHE WAS BIGGER THEN BEFORE
    AND THAT IT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING, SHE WOULD GROW EVEN MORE
    SO SHE WENT BACK OUTSIDE WITH HER JACKS AND ROPE
    WITH HER SMILING FRECKLED FACE AND HER REGAINED HOPE!

    SO USE WHAT ANNIE LEARNED TO SAVE YOURSELF TEARS
    IF YOU'RE A LITTLE UNDERSIZED OR SHORT FOR YOUR YEARS
    PATIENCE, YOU'LL SEE, IS A TRAIT TO BEFRIEND
    YOU WILL EVENTUALLY GROW AND BE HAPPY....
    THE END!
Working...
