Hey! Little Girl
Del Shannon Lyrics

Last night I walked through the streets of my town.
I saw the shadow of a girl I had known.
And through the shadows I could see many tears,
And so I walked up and I said,

"Hey, little girl,
Let me fix your broken heart.
I'll replace each broken part that's gone.
Because I know I could try,
Hey, little girl, my heart's been broken too."

"Do you remember last September
When I met you at a dance?
You were with a guy named Joe
And all at once he said you had to go.
I never even caught your name!"

"Hey, little girl,
I've been searching everywhere,
Here, there, everywhere for you
Because I have cried for you
Hey, little girl, I'm so in love with you!"

"Hey, little girl,
I can see that he was mean.
He shattered all the dreams you had.
So come with me and see
Hey, little girl, I'll make all your dreams come true!
Come, little girl, I'll make all your dreams come true!"

I sure miss having this multi-talented man in the world still today. Everything he did is so much better than the garbage going around now


This song needs to be in a Quentin Tarantino movie!

The great Del Shannon. First heard this record in 1963 in a dance hall. Since then I became a fan of this wonderful singer. When I ever listen to this record, I’m straight back to the early 1960’s.

One of my favorite songs by Del; such an underappreciated classic!


Long live the memory of the late, great Del Shannon.

This song reminds me when I saw my ex Tessa at a Scottish dancing party and she was with another guy and it was so good to see her.
