Just a little girl who'd suit me to a T

She don't have to wave her hair
Or dress in fancy clothes
And I wouldn't even care if she don't wear silken hose

I need a little girl, that certain kind
The kind you read about but never find
Just a little girl who'd fall in love with me
Just a little girl who'd fall in love with me
