Little Eva

(M. Roberts / G. O’Reilly)

I.M.R.O. / M.C.P.S.


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
