Two Little Girls From Little Rock
(From: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes)

[Marilyn & Jane Russell]

We're just two little girls from Little Rock,
We lived on the wrong side of the tracks,
But the gentlemen friends who used to call,
They never did seem to mind at all,
They came to the wrong side of the tracks!

[Marilyn alone]

Then someone broke my heart in Little Rock,
So I up and left the pieces there,
Like a little lost lamb I roamed about,
I came to New York and I found out,

[Marilyn & Jane Russell]

that men are the same way everywhere!
I was young and determined,
To be wined and dined and ermined,
And I worked at it all around the clock!
Now one of these days in my fancy clothes,
I'm going back home and punch the nose,
of the one who broke my heart, the one who broke my heart,
the one who broke my heart, in Little Rock! Little Rock!

[Jane Russell alone]

I'm just a little girl from Little Rock,
A horse used to be my closest pal,
Though I never did learn to read or write,
I learned about love in the pale moonlight,
And now I'm an educated gal!

[Marilyn alone]

I learned an awful lot in Little Rock,
And here's some advice I'd like to share,
Find a gentlemen who is shy or bold,
or short or tall, or young or old,
As long as the guy's a millionaire!

[Marilyn & Jane Russell]

For a kid from the wrong street,
I did very well on Wall Street,
Though I never owned a share of stock!
And now that I'm known in the biggest banks,
I'm going back home and give my thanks,
To the one who broke my heart, the one who broke my heart,
the one who broke my heart, in Little Rock! Little Rock!
