I Lost My Little Girl
   ------Paul McCartney

By Paul McCartney

Recorded live at the Limehouse Television Studios, London for MTV's 'Unplugged', 25 January 1991


-"Now...gonna play a song which, eh, I, it was the first song I ever wrote, when I was fourteen.
Eh...we've done an arrangement on it, you see. You take a 'G' and you take a 'G7' and then the 'C'.
That's all there is really. A bit of 'F', I must admit."

WELL, I WOKE UP LATE THIS MORNING,
MY HEAD WAS IN A WHIRL,
ONLY WHEN I REALISED I LOST MY LITTLE GIRL.
AH-HAH-HAH-HAH-HAH.

WELL, HER CLOTHES ARE NOT EXPENSIVE,
HER HAIR DIDN'T ALWAYS CURL.
I DON'T KNOW WHY I LOVE HER
BUT I LOVE MY LITTLE GIRL.
AH-HAH-HAH-HAH-HAH.

WELL, GATHER 'ROUND PEOPLE,
LET ME TELL YOU THE STORY
OF THE VERY FIRST SONG I WROTE.
WELL, GATHER 'ROUND PEOPLE,

AH-HAH-HAH-HAH-HAH.

THAT'S IT!


-"Thank you, thank you!
We never did it because of that line...eh..."Her hair wouldn't always curl".
Couldn't handle that line."
