Little Children Billy J Kramer and The Dakotas
[D]Little children, you better not tell on [C]me, [A]I'm tellin' you,
[D]little children, you better not tell what you [C]see. [D]
[D]And if you're good, [G]I'll give you candy and a quarter,
[A]if you're quiet, [F]like you oughta [E]be, and keep a secret with [A]me.
[A7]I wish they would go [D]away.
[D]Little children, now why aren't you playin' [C]outside, [A]I'm askin' you,
[D]you can't fool me, cause I'm gonna know if you [C]hide, [D]and try to peek.
[G]I'm gonna treat you to a movie, [A]stop your gigglin',
[F]children do be [E]nice, [A]like little sugars and [D]spice.
[F]You saw me kissin' your [G]sister, [F]you saw me holdin' her [G]hand,
[G]but if you snitch to your [A]mother, [G]your father won't [A]understand.
[A7]I wish they would take a [D]nap.
[D]Little children, now why don't you go, bye-[C]bye, [A]go anywhere at all.
[D]Little children, I know you could if you [C]tried, [D]go up the stairs!
[G]Me and your sister, we're goin' steady,
[A]how can I kiss her, [F]when I'm ready [E]to? [A]
[A7]With little children like [D]you [G]around.[A]
I wonder what can I [D]do [G]around, lit[A]tle children like yo[D]u? [C] [A7] [D]
