There's a little girl 
In our neighborhood
Her name is Charlotte Johnson 
And she's really looking good

I had to go and see her, 
So I called her on the phone
I walked over to her house, 
And this was going on

Her brother was on the sofa 
Eating chocolate pie
Her momma was in the kitchen 
Cutting chicken up to fry

Her daddy was in the backyard 
Rolling up a garden hose
I was on the porch with Charlotte 
Feeling love down to my toes

And they were swinging 
Yeah they were swinging
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in this swing
Just a-swinging

Now Charlotte's she's a darling, 
She's the apple of my eye
And when I'm on the swing with her it 
She makes me almost high

And Charlotte is my lover 
And she has been since the spring
I just can't believe it started 
On her front porch in this swing

A-just a swinging, just a swinging
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in this swing
Just a-swinging

Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in this swing
Just a-swinging

Yeah we were swinging
I see him swinging
Just swinging
