Little Girl Blue and Summertime.... Janis Joplin


Sit there, hmm, count your fingers.
What else, what else is there to do?
Oh, and I know how you feel,
I know you feel that you're through.
Oh ah-wah-ah sit there, hmm, count,
Ah, count your little fingers,
My unhappy, oh, little girl, little girl blue, yeah.

Oh sit there, oh count those raindrops
Oh, feel'em falling down, honey, all around you.
Honey, don't you know it's time?
I feel it's time,
Somebody told you, 'cause you got to know,
That all you ever gonna have to count on,
Or gonna wanna lean on,
It's gonna feel just like those raindrops do,
When they're falling down, honey, all around you.
Oh, I know you're unhappy.

Oh sit there, ah, go on, go on
And count your fingers.
I don't know what else, what else,
Honey, have you got to do.
And I know how you feel,
And I know you ain't got no reason to go on,
And I know you feel that you must be through.
Oh honey, go on and sit right back down.
I want you to count, oh, count your fingers,
Ah, my unhappy, my unlucky
And my little, oh, girl blue.
I know you're unhappy,
Ooh ah, honey, I know,
Baby, I know, just how you feel.

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living's easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton's high, Lord, so high.
Your daddy's rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She's looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
No, no, no, no, don't you cry.
Don't you cry!
One of these mornings
You're gonna rise, rise up singing,
You're gonna spread your wings,
Child, and take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.
Until that morning
Honey, n-n-nothing's going to harm you now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don't you cry,
Don't you cry,
Cry.
