About Thank Heaven for Little Girls

"Thank Heaven for Little Girls" is a 1957 song written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe and associated with Maurice Chevalier, its original performer. It opened and closed the 1958 film Gigi. Alfred Drake performed the song in the 1973 Broadway stage production of Gigi, and in the 2015 revival, it was sung as a duet between Victoria Clark and Dee Hoty. The Chevalier version is often regarded as the definitive version of the song; he recorded it in 1958. In 2004, it finished at #56 on AFI's 100 Years. ..100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema. In the mid-1990s, a contemporary take on the song was recorded by the Seattle-based alternative band Ruby for a Mountain Dew commercial in the United States. This recording later was repurposed by PepsiCo for its Pepsi Max brand in the United Kingdom. Bing Crosby recorded the song for his radio show in 1960 and it subsequently was released on the CD Songs I Wish I Had Sung the First Time Around... (2014). It has been performed by Rosemary Clooney, Perry Como, Gérard Depardieu, Merle Haggard, Hugh Hefner, The King Brothers, Ed McMahon, and in his faux French accent, Peter Sellers. In the Happy Days season 5 episode "Be My Valentine" (February 14, 1978), a then-18-year-old Scott Baio sang it as part of a series of musical numbers commemorating Valentine's Day. In the 1997 film Wag the Dog, the song performed by Chevalier is used as backdrop for an election campaign ad.

Each time I see a little girl
Of five or six or seven
I can't resist a joyous urge
To smile and say
Thank heaven
For little girls
For little girls get bigger every day
Thank heaven
For little girls
They grow up in the most delightful way
Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
One day will flash and send you crashing
Through the ceiling
Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all
No matter where
No matter who
Without them
What would little boys do?
Thank heaven
Thank heaven
Thank heaven for little girls
Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
One day will flash
And send you crashing through the ceiling
Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all
No matter where
No matter who
Without them what would little boys do?
Thank heaven
Thank heaven
Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for little girls
