Why Do Little Girls (为什么小女孩) (LP版) - Harry Chapin

Written by:Harry Chapin

 

Why did the little girls grow crooked

 

While the little boys grow tall

The boys were taught to tumble

The girls told not to fall

 

The girls answered the telephone

The boys answered the call

 

That's why little girls grew crooked

While the little boys grew tall

 

Why did the little girls grow crippled

While the little boys grow strong

 

The boys allowed to come of age

The girls just came along

 

The girls were told sing harmonies

The boys could all sing songs

That's why little girls grew crippled

While little boys grew strong

 

Why did the little girls come broken

 

While the little boys came whole

And the little boys were set aflame

And the girls told to fan the coals

 

The boys all told to be themselves

The girls were told play the roles

That's why little girls came broken

 

While little boys came whole

 

Why were the little girls all frightened

To be just what they are

 

The boys were told to ask themselves

How high how far

The girls were told to reach the shelves

While the boys were reaching stars

That's why little girls were frightened

To be just what they are

 

And still they bled for us all

 

As the moon rode the sky

 

They carried our seed

 

When our need ran high

 

They fed all our children

In the night as they cried

 

Womankind wept

As mankind died

 

Why were the little girls left hurtin

When all the boys were done

And the girls left in the moonlight

When the boys went to meet the sun

And when the girls were open

Why had the little boy all won

 

That's why little girls were hurtin

When the little boys were done

 

Why did the little girls grow crooked

While the little boys grew tall

It's maybe because the little boys

Didn't ever have to grow up at all
