She's a babe Just a babe Still cavorting in her crib Eating breakfast with a bib With her baby teeth And all her baby curls She's a tot Just a tot Good for bouncing on your knee I am positive that she Doesn't even know that boys aren't girls She's a snip Just a snip Making dreadful baby noise Having fun with all her toys Just a chickadee who needs a mother hen She's a cub, a papoose You could never turn her loose She's too infantile to take her from her pen Of course, that weekend in Trouville In spite of all her youthful zeal She was exceedingly polite And on the whole a sheer delight And if it wasn't joy galore At least not once was she a bore, That I recall No, not at all Ah! She's a child A silly child Adolescent to her toes And good heaven how it shows Sticky thumbs are all the fingers she has got She's a child A clumsy child She's as swollen as a grape And she doesn't have a shape Where her figure ought to be, It is not! Just a child A growing child That's so backward for her years If a boy her age appears I am certain he will never call again! She's a scamp and a brat Doesn't know where she is at Unequipped and undesirable to men Of course, I must confess That in that brand new little dress She looked surprisingly mature And had a definite allure It was a shock in fact to me The most amazing shock to see The way it clung On one, so young! She's a girl, A little girl! Getting older, it is true Which is what they always do Till that unexpected hour When they blossom like a flower! Oh no Oh no But, but, There's sweeter music when she speaks Isn't there? Could I be wrong? Could it be so? Oh where, oh where Did Gigi go? Gigi! Am I a fool without a mind Or have I merely been too blind to realise? Oh Gigi! Why you've been growing up before my very eyes Gigi! You're not at all That funny, awkward little girl, I knew Oh no! Over night there's been a breathless change in you Oh Gigi! While you were trembling on the brink Was I out yonder somewhere blinking at a star? Oh Gigi! Have I been standing up too close Or back too far? When did your sparkle turn to fire? And your warmth become desire? Oh what miracle has made you the way you are? Gigi! Gigi! Gigi! Oh no! I was mad not to have seen the change in you Oh Gigi!
