One of my favourite songs of all time.
Dedicated to all the women who have been, are, were abused.
janis joplin, little girl blue, 1969.
Sit there, count your fingers.
What else, what else can you do?
Oh and I know how you feel,
I know you feel like you’re through.
Oh sit there, count,
Ah, count your little fingers,
My unhappy oh little girl, little girl blue, yeah.
Sit there, go on, go on count those raindrops
Don’t you feel ’em falling down, oh honey all around you.
Don’t you know it’s time,
I feel it’s time
Somebody told you ’cause you got to know
That all you ever gonna have to count
Or gonna wanna lean on
It’s gonna feel just like those raindrops do
When they’re falling down, honey, all around you.
Oh, I know, I know you’re unhappy.
Sit there, go on, go on and
Count your fingers.
I know what else, what else
Honey have you got to do.
And I know how you feel,
And I know you ain’t got no reason to go on
I know you feel that you must be through.
Go on and sit right back down,
I want you to count, count your fingers,
My unhappy, my unlucky
But my little, little girl blue.
I know you’re unhappy,
Ooooh, honey I know,
Baby I know just how you feel.
