Little girl, little girl, you’ve tried
Where other little girls haven’t dared,
We know you’ve been sad and you cried,
Though you smiled and said you hadn’t cared.
You were brave to have journeyed from your home
To a city you knew nothing about.
But it’s comforting to learn you’re not alone
And that others, like yourself, are quite put out.
There are thousands, - many thousands who aspire
To have their picture on every movie screen,
But their struggle never seem to get them higher,
And record of their work is seldom seen.
Yet, day by day in every way,
You think the while you toil
That through some chance, someone may say,
