(Verse 1 - Sinatra version)
When you were very young,
the world was younger than you,
As merry as a carousel,

(Verse 1 - Fitzgerald version)
When I was very young,
the world was younger than I,
As merry as a carousel,

The circus tent was strung
with ever star in the sky,
Above the ring you loved so well.

(Bridge - Sinatra version)
Now the young world has grown old,
Gone are the silver and gold,

(Bridge - Fitzgerald version)
Now the young world has grown old,
Gone are the tinsel and gold,

(Chorus:)
Sit there and count your fingers,
what can you do,
Old girl, you're through.
Just sit there and count your little fingers,
unhappy little girl blue. [Fitzgerald version: Unlucky...]

Sit there and count the raindrops
Falling on you,
It's time you knew,
All you can count on are the raindrops
That fall on little girl blue.

No use, old girl, you might as well surrender,
Your hopes are getting slender,
why won't somebody send a tender
Blue boy
to cheer up little girl blue.

No use, old girl, you might as well surrender,
Your hopes are getting slender,
why won't somebody send a tender
Blue boy
to cheer up little girl blue.
