Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Little Kids

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1965 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1993.

Little kids drive me out of my mind,
Out of my mind.
They're so great.
They're as full of potential
As an acorn is of oak tree,
They can be anything at all,
A dancer, a prophet,
A lover, a singer,
A dreamer, a refuge,
A bird on the wing,
Anything, depending where they fall,
A madman, a drunk in a dirty doorway,
Or the chairman of the board of the First National Bank.

Malvina Reynolds songbook(s) in which the music to this song appears:
---- The Muse of Parker Street

Malvina Reynolds recording(s) on which this song is performed:
