Little Eva, at the break of day
I see a tear so I wipe it away.
When I see the light play upon your face
I know the world is a better place
Little Eva, you haven't slept all night
I wish you could tell your daddy why you cry
Was it something in your dreams that fell or tumbled?
When I opened the door that disturbed your slumber
Oh Eva if you only knew,
The road I have travelled to be with you
Oh Eva if you only knew, the road I've travelled for you
Little Eva at the close of day
I hear you sing and I watch you play.
If I had a wish and wishes aren't safe
I'd wish it was like this always
