The Drifters – When My Little Girl Is Smiling lyrics

Ev'ry time my baby and I have a quarrel,
I swear I won't give in.
Then my baby starts to smile at me,
and I know, I know I just can't win.

When My Little Girl Is Smiling
There's nothing more I can Say.
I see those big bright eyes
and then I realize
that girl is gonna get her way

When My Little Girl Is Smiling
I can't stay mad at her for long.
Why should I want to fight
when I can hold her tight?
I just don't care who's right or wrong.

When My Little Girl Is Smiling
it's the greatest thrill there can be.
She gets her way it's true,
but I know I won't be blue
as long as she just smiles for me.
