When I was just a little boy so high
A pretty little girl came dancing by
She said hello to me and smiled so tenderly
And asked me what's ny name

[CHORUS]
And she wore petticoat white
And summer sky blue
The sweetest little thing
I ever, ever knew
Petticoat white and summer sky blue
The sweetest little thing I ever knew

I never will forget the early years
The way we shared the laughter and the tears
And our first precious kiss
Oh, how I clung to this when she moved away

[Repeat CHORUS]

Someday I'll marry and I'll settle down
I'll see my girl there in her wedding gown
It will recall to me, our childhood memory
As she walks down the aisle

'Cause she'll wear petticoat white
And summer sky blue
The sweetest little thing
I ever, ever knew
Petticoat white and summer sky blue
The sweetest little thing I ever knew

'Cause she wore petticoat white
And summer sky blue
The sweetest little thing
I ever, ever knew...
