Everettsville: Music

"Just Too Young" (lyrics)

(Don Everett Pearce)
(c)(p) 2011 Don Everett Pearce

This one’s about a little lady that I’ve been spending a lot of time with while my wife’s at work.


In the early morn
She’s up ‘fore she oughta to be
I try to get right back to sleeping
But it’s not to be
Then she cracks the blinds
And the sun streaks to the floor
She’s tugging at my sleeve
Pointing to the door


She is just too young
Everything’s a thrill
She will not remember this…but I will


Got a zig-zag walk
On the sidewalk and the lawn
She’s got a twig and a rock to take home
Show ‘em to her mom
In the restaurant
In her summer hat and curls
She’s drawing all over the mat
in manic swirls


She is just too young
And she can’t sit still
She will not remember this…but I will


When the evening comes
And it’s time to wind her down
Gotta raise the blinds and show her
A full moon is out
Little diamond stars
Little arms toward the sky
That’s the moon and she knows
That it’s time to say goodnight


She is just too young
Got her whole life still
She will not remember this day
But I sure will
