Lyrics ANNIE'S GOT
AN AUNT FANNIE.
ANNIE'S GOT
AN AUNT FANNIE.
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE,
AUNT FANNIE,
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE,
AUNT FANNIE,
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE,
AUNT FANNIE,
SHE ALWAYS GETS
MY NANNY.

I SENT HER
TO THE STORE
FOR CANDY.
I SENT HER
TO THE STORE
FOR CANDY.
BUT SHE CAME RIGHT BACK
SO DANDY
BEFORE I COULD CUDDLE
WITH MY ANNIE.
THERE SITS
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE.
SHE ALWAYS GETS
MY NANNY.

SHE'S IN MY WAY
EV'RY DAY.
WHAT CAN I SAY,
HOW CAN I PLAY?
SHE WON'T
LET ME BE.
OH!
CAN'T YOU SEE?
I'M GOING TO
CHASE HER AWAY -
SHOO!

ANNIE'S GOT
AN AUNT FANNIE.
ANNIE'S GOT
AN AUNT FANNIE.
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE,
AUNT FANNIE,
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE,
AUNT FANNIE,
ANNIE'S AUNT FANNIE,
AUNT FANNIE,
SHE ALWAYS GETS
MY NANNY.

Lyrics THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE...

WHILE I'M FAR AWAY
FROM YOU MY BABY,
I KNOW IT'S HARD
FOR YOU MY BABY,
BECAUSE IT'S HARD
FOR ME MY BABY,
AND THE DARKEST HOUR
IS JUST BEFORE DAWN.

EACH NIGHT BEFORE YOU GO TO BED
MY BABY,
WHISPER A LITTLE PRAYER FOR ME
MY BABY,
AND TELL ALL THE STARS ABOVE,
THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.

LIFE CAN NEVER BE
EXACTLY
LIKE WE WANT IT TO BE.
I CAN'T BE SATISFIED
KNOWING YOU LOVE ME.
THERE'S ONE THING
I WANT YOU TO DO,
ESPECIALLY FOR ME
AND IT'S SOMETHING
EV'RYBODY NEEDS.

EACH NIGHT BEFORE YOU GO TO BED
MY BABY,
WHISPER A LITTLE PRAYER FOR ME
MY BABY,
AND TELL ALL THE STARS ABOVE,
THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.

THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.
THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.
THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.
THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.

Lyrics WELL,
I DON'T WANT MUCH,
JUST WANT A LITTLE BIT.
DON'T WANT MUCH,
NO,
JUST WANT A LITTLE BIT.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.

EARLY IN THE MORNING,
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
LATE IN THE EVENING,
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
'ROUND ABOUT MIDNIGHT,
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.

WON'T YOU WALK WITH ME,
JUST A LITTLE BIT?
TALK TO ME,
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.

TURN THE LAMPS DOWN LOW,
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
LOVE YOU SO,
LOVE ME
A LITTLE BIT.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.

TURN YOUR LIGHTS DOWN LOW,
AND KINDLY SLIP ME A KISS,
TURN YOUR LIGHTS DOWN LOW,
I JUST CAN'T RESIST.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT OF YOUR LOVE.

I WANT YOU FOREVER,
NOT JUST FOR PIECE OF MIND.
PLEASE, SAY
YOU'LL NEVER LEAVE ME,
NOT 'TIL THE END OF TIME.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.

I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.
