Turn Around

I’ve mentioned the barbershop group that I admire so called The Buzz. My budding quartet and I are wanting to learn a song that they have performed so I was flipping through their CD and came across a very pretty intro to a song I hadn’t really paid attention to anymore. The song made me cry, and my daughter isn’t even here yet. It’s sweet and beautiful, and you may have heard it before. Here are the lyrics.

Where are you going, my little one, little one
Where are you going, my baby, my own?
Turn around and you’re two, turn around and you’re four
Turn around and you’re a young girl going out of my door

Turn around, turn around
Turn around and you’re a young girl going out of my door

Where are you going, my little one, little one
Pigtails and petticoats, where have you gone?
Turn around and you’re tiny, turn around and you’re grown
Turn around and you’re a young wife with babes of your own

Turn around, turn around
Turn around and you’re a young wife with babes of your own

Turn around, turn around
Turn around and you’re the young girl going out of the door
Where are you going, my little one, little one
Where are you going, my baby, my own?
