IntroE....A....E....A.Verse 1E No one ever told you it would be like thAis
E That you keep on getting older, but you fAeel just like a kid
E Now they treat you like a lady
A Sometimes all you want is to cEry like a baby
In your mAama's arms

ChorusHold on, little big F#girlA
Hold oEn...A....E....A.Verse 2E See her in the mirror in your mAake-up case
E Who's that little girl with the lAines on her face
E Painting on the eyes of a grAown woman
And the smEile of a child Atrying to please someone
E You look like your mama when you smAile that way
E Standing in the kitchen at the eAnd of a working day
E Children on her mindA, wine on her breath
E Finishing the dishes in the dAarkness
ChorusHold on, little big F#girlA
Hold on, little big F#girlA
Hold on, little big F#girlA
Hold F#onBridgeHold on a minute, mAom
Tell me why
F# How come I feel so smaAll sometimes?
F#I thought by now I'd have it aAll figured out
Well I dF#on't
How come you never tAold me?Verse 3E You grow up by mistake
A Grow up by surprise
E Grow up underneath the gaze of Amany grown men's eyes
E Try to act your age now, but you Adon't know how it's done
EAll grown up and somehow still afrAaid to disappoint someone
E Let him have his way instead of saAying what you want
Hold Eon
Tell him it's okay instead of tF#melling him what's wrong
Hold oEn
How come you're ashamed to show your fAace without your make-up on?
E Maybe you should face that you're ashameAd to not be youngPre-ChorusEStanding in the kitchen
A..With a ticking clock
And you caEtch your own reflection
In the wAindow in the dark
And for a mEoment, it's your mama
A Coming home from work
E Tell her you love her
AT ell her you're herChorusLittle F#big girlA, hold on
Little F#big girlA, hold on
Little F#big girlA, hold oEn...A....E....A.
Hold Eon..A....E.
