The Little Things

(Donna Beasley)
Home Canned Beats (SESAC)

It’s shopping together in the grocery store

Buying stuff we didn't need

It’s firing up the backyard grill

Cooking enough burgers to feed the whole neighborhood

It’s a day spent working on your old car

It was always leaking oil

And finding a used one for your birthday

Sneaking around trying not to spoil the big surprise

 

It’s a little house with a little fence

A little yard I used to mow

A little dog I used to walk

Down by a little church where we used to go

A little boy who tries to act like a man

A little girl who tries like me to understand all of this

Yeah, it’s the little things I miss

 

It’s the catch I didn't play

The I love you's I didn't say

The stories I didn't read

The advice I didn't heed,

It’s the time I didn't take

The love I didn't make

When I had the chance

 

And a little house with a little fence

A little yard I used to mow

A little dog I used to walk

Down by a little church where we used to go

A little boy who tries to act like a man

A little girl who tries like me to understand all of this

Yeah, it’s the little things I miss

Yeah, it’s the little things I miss

Yeah, it’s the little things

Aw, the little things

It sure is the little things I miss
