=========================================================


        You know it's hard for me
        I cannot use the phone
        and in the shade of publicity
        no relationship is born
        And I feel like a Hercules
        who's recently been shorn
        but I have always loved my baby sister

        Pick me up at eight
        you'll see me on TV
        I know I don't look well
        time's not been good to me
        But please believe me
        the blame is all on me
        and I've always loved my baby sister

        Remember when, we were younger when
        you would wait for me at school
        teachers, friends and brazen sins
        and I was often cruel
        But you always believed in me
        you thought I was the best
        and now that I've got you alone
        let me get this off my chest

        Pick a melody
        then count from one to ten (eight, nine, ten)
        I'll make a rhyme up
        and then we'll try again
        To laugh or cry, or give a sigh
        to a past that might have been
        and how much I really loved my baby sister
        And how much I really loved my baby sister
        and how much I really loved my baby sister

        Pa-pa-pa-pa, pa-pa-pa-pa
        pa-pa-pa-pa, pa-pa-pa-pa
        Pa-pa-pa-pa, pa-pa-pa-pa

"Little Sister"


You know it's hard for me
I cannot use the phone
And in the shade of the...
No relationship is born
And I feel like a Hercules(?)
who's recently been shown
But I have always loved my baby sister

Pick me up at eight
You see me on t.v
I know I don't look well
Times not being good to me
But please believe me
The blame is all on me
I've always loved my baby sister

Remember when, we were young and when
you would wait for me at school
Teacher's friends and...
and I was often cruel
But you always believed in me
you thought I was the best
And now that I got you alone
Let me get this off my chest

Pick? a melody then count from one to ten
I'll make a... and then we'll try again
To laugh or cry or give a sigh
to a past that might have been
And how much I really love my baby sister

(repeat)

@SONG:  Little Sister

You know it's hard for me
I cannot use the phone
In the shape of publicity
No relationship is born 
I feel like a Hercules who's recently been shorn
But I have always loved my baby sister

Pick me up at eight 
You'll see me on tv
I don't know I don't look well
Time's not been good to me
But please believe me
The blame is all on me 
I have always loved my baby sister

Remember when, we were younger when
You would wait for me at school
Teacher's friends and brazen sins
And I was often cruel
But you always believed in me
You thought I was the best
And now that I got you alone
Let me get this off my chest

Pick a melody 
Then count from one to ten
I make a rhyme up 
Then we will try again
To laugh or cry or give a sigh 
To past that might have been
And how much I really love my baby sister
And how much I really love my baby sister
And how much I really love my baby sister

ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba
