edited version
Sit there
And count your fingers
What can you do
Little girl you're through

Sit there
Count your little fingers
Unhappy little girl blue

Sit there
Count the raindrops
Falling on you

It's time you knew
All you can ever count on
Are the raindrops
That fall on little girl blue

Ain't no use old girl
You might as well surrender
Cos your hopes
Are getting slender

Why won't somebody send
A tender blue boy
To cheer up little girl blue
