Little Arrows
(Hammond/Hazelwood)
Recorded by Brendan O'Brien & The Dixies
1968 - Pye 7N17591 / City Of Tears

There's a boy a little boy shooting arrows in the blue,
And he's aiming them at someone but the question is at who?
Is it me or is it you? It's hard to tell until you're hit
But you'll know it when they hit you 'cause they hurt a little bit.

Here they come floating out of the blue
Little arrows for me and for you;
You're falling in love again
You're falling in love again

Little arrows in your clothing, little arrows in your hair
When you're in love you'll find those little arrows everywhere;
Little arrows that will hit you once and hit you once again
Little arrows will hit everyone every now and then

Some folks run and others hide but there's nothing that you can do
And some folks put on armour but the arrows go straight through;
So you see there's no escape, so why not face it and admit
That you love those little arrows when they fall a little bit.
Originally recorded by Leapy Lee, 1968
