Underwood, Carrie - Little Girl Don't Grow Up Too Fast Lyrics

Little princess, summer flowers in her hair
Playing Ring Around The Rosie in a picture there
Tiptoeing 'round the house in her mama's shoes
Coloring her lips red in her bedroom

Prom queen wants to be like the magazines
Thinks she found her king, barely seventeen
Too much that the world's wanting you to do
When you're still just a child in your mama's shoes

Little girl, little girl, don't grow up too fast
'Fore you know it, you'll be wishing you could just go back
Don't you know there'll be plenty of time for that
Somewhere down the road?
Yeah, it's all gonna fly in the blink of an eye
You can't slow down this thing called life
So take your time and let it last
Little girl, don't grow up too fast

Sometimes I feel like I'm hanging on by a thread
Climbing ladders trying to get to the next step
Working hard, always wanting something more
Missing how things were simple like it was before

Cause it's hard to know just what to do
When I still feel like a child in my mama's shoes

Little girl, little girl, don't grow up too fast
'Fore you know it, you'll be wishing you could just go back
Don't you know there'll be plenty of time for that
Somewhere down the road?
Yeah, it's all gonna fly in the blink of an eye
You can't slow down this thing called life
So take your time and let it last
Little girl, don't grow up too fast

Sometimes I wish I could just go back and say
"Take your time and let it last, little girl"

Yeah, it's all gonna fly in the blink of an eye
You can't slow down this thing called life
So take your time and let it last
Little girl, don't grow up too fast
Little girl, don't grow up too fast

Underwood, Carrie Little Girl Don't Grow Up Too Fast Comments
  1. Amber Bickel

    Hitting the replay button

  2. Ari D

    My biggest fear is to grow up.

  3. Margaret Sweet

    Was forced to grow up to soon. Want to go back

  4. Brencyn Gillettr

    I'm only 11 and o want to back but only cuz then half of my family would still be alive and my parents don't look so depressed and be happy again...😔😔

  5. Luciano Jr

    this made my bro Gf break up with him fuck this song i swear .Fuck this song

  6. sareeya lol

    Graduated from middle school today... I’m not ready for the future😩🤧😭

  7. Arisha Mehmood

    I graduate high school in what 4 months, and my final exams are in 3 months time. I turn 16 in 6 months and I'm not ready to do any of those things; go to college or start work I just wanna go back to when I had no worry's whatsoever and my problems were so little and things I could tell my parents about. If I was annoyed or upset I could climb into my momma's lap and she would cradle me in her arms, and promise me that she'll make everything okay!

    God, I don't wanna grow up!

  8. Harley Quinn

    I'm going to sing this to my daughter when I have one but I have a feeling I'm having a girl I'm 8 weeks pregnant and my boyfriend is so happy

  9. Corey Klaustermeier

    I’m getting mixed messages here. This song tells you to take life slow because you’ll have plenty of time to do what you wanna do, but she also has Clock Don’t Stop which tells you not to waste time because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Lol

  10. That Nova Gal

    I'm 20, and I wish I could be a little girl again.

  11. Brooklyn Welch

    I'm 13 and I love this song but to be honest I don't think I'm growing up fast enough I go to my dads every other weekend and I love it there but the rest if my time I'm with my mom and sisters and my mom doesn't treat me like a daughter at all more like a babysitter and a house keeper I can't wait to be 18 and moved out

    Movin On

    Do not think for a minute that life on your own, moved out at 18, is going to be easier or better than living with a Momma who loves you. Even if she has to rely on you for baby sitting.

    Listen to the song. Don't rush out into the world, because there are decisions in life that you make that you cannot undo.

    Pray, and try to look at life through your Momma's eyes sometimes. Hint: she is scared to death that she is going to fail you, but cannot show that to you.

  12. Zoe Suzy

    This song plays on my debut 😮 'A princess is now a Lady'

  13. AnonymousOcean

    I hate it when people say they love carrie underwood and they dont even know this song

  14. Jayne Coppola

    Y’all always think how your mom actually feels about you growing up too fast until you feel the lump on your throat when she gives a little talk about it😞😿

  19. Dorotea Teisler

    Kenzi story?

  20. madison barron

    my baby cousin is 7 months old, and I’m gonna remind her of this 😂 I don’t want her to grow up she’s my favorite :)

  21. Tammy Smith

  22. Natalia Lara

    This song made me cry, so true...if I had the chance for telling me something as a child...it would be that phrase

  23. Samara Takvorian

    I’m 12 and I really want to grow up, I wanna wear high heels,wear makeup , date, drive ect. My mom is always telling not to rush my life away but I really do.when hearing this song it made me cry.

  37. Lovatic4life Xx

    This is what I want for my little cousin soon to be cousins because I dealt with bullying at a young age which pushed me to grow up fast and I don't want that for my cousins once only 5 and one isn't even here yet but I want them to enjoy there life as they are and not worry about the future

  38. Brianna Elizabeth

    When I was 7, I wanted to be a teenager so bad. All my cousins are older than me, I wanted to be like them so bad. Now that I’m a teenager I just want to be 7 again. Everything is so hard now, and I know it will get harder as a I get older.

    I turn 29 in less than a month it seems like yesterday I was a little girl fishing with my daddy. I wish I stayed liked that instead of becoming a typical teenager. I moved away at 18 and never went back only go to visit about once every few months now use to be once a year but now im in the same state. Im now married with 2 little girls ages 7 and 5 and a 6 year old little boy and I am proud to say I keep the tradition of taking them fishing and will take them fishing as long as they will allow me. hopefully they don't grow up to fast.

  58. Julia G

    Parentification kills your innocent dreams and thrusts you into the world in which unbearable weights crush you. And somehow you need to make them look like a pair of wings.

  59. Rainbooming

  63. Lillian Stanton

  64. Ashley Jackson

    I'm going to be a 7 grader next year.And I would love have told my younger self this because I was always ready to grow up

  65. Midget Sloan

    How can you not grow up fast when the education system makes you chose your future when your 13? We pick our subjects and that decides where we go from there.

    Miss MusicalOutcast

    Yeah,i’m 12 , not even a teenager yet but it feels like yesterday i was 11, and the day before i was 10

    Clumsy Program

    Yeah im 14 and i have pick a job and all that

    Creative Writer

    What country are you'all from..?
    I'm so confused...

    Movin On

    In European countries like the UK and Ireland, to qualify for university you need very high grades in very specific subjects. To take those tests you need to begin a schedule of coursework that begins at around 8th grade. So in most subjects you must have your college career decided by age 14 or so.

    College is "free" in many of these places, but you cannot switch majors unless your previously completed coursework happens to also satisfy the second degree choice.


    I so wish I could be that sweet innocent perfect little girl like it was prior to all of the bad things my abusive adoptive family done to me but I know I can’t ever get her back myself no matter what I still wish I was still her as well as I am now 17 myself too!

  67. Shelby Moore

    It feels like one day I am 4 the next thing I know I am picking electives for high school.

  68. Alyssa Trobaugh

    So true

  69. Nicholai Barak

    Great message! I love Carrie Underwood & I wish that this song was on the regular "Storyteller" album!

  70. Brooke Elizabeth

    my first question is why have i never heard this song before?? i needed it about a year ago when my life seemed to be moving so quickly and still is. Absolutly amazing song. very inspiring 💕💕💕

  71. Beauty Within

    This song is for my husband and i future daughter 😘😍

  72. Kristine Shaner

    I am a freshman this fall and I wish I could tell my 6 year old self this. I've definitely grown up too fast. Growing up really does suck. I want to be a kid again.

  73. Winter Millhouse

    21y/o about to have a baby of my own, wondering where my childhood went, wish I could back and tell my self not to take it to fast just enjoy it

  74. Jennifer Lund

    Almost 17 an I feel like time is just going way to fast, I look back on all the little kid things I loved and how I didn't have that much to worry bout how I wish I could just go back to that an do things over again 😭😭

  75. Camogirl warrior

    I'm gonna be a freshman this coming fall and its kinda scary it was so simple when we were kids

  76. SportsLuvr

    I know people have said so, but I forget which one. Isn't there a guy version of this song? I'm a guy btw, if you couldn't tell and damn, some of these comments makes me feel so old. I'm 25.5 now and high school feels like such a blur to me now. Everybody, don't wish to grow up, enjoy the life you are living right now because you will be old before you know it and wonder where has all the time gone. Life goes by too fast so cherish the moments you have right now, cause you'll never get them back.

    I'm not really a country fan but Carrie Underwood is like the only country singer I will listen to. Part of the reason I like her is her love for sports, haha.

  77. Jenna Johnson

    They should put this song on Spotify

    Natalie West


  78. Alyssa Rojas

    Just yesterday I was turning 7...

  83. tailor denwalt

    Ill be turning 17 in June and this song makes me so emotional.

  84. emily brown

    I'm a freshman in college and I'm still in shock! What happened?!?! I remember playing with my little sister when we were in elementary school without a care in the world. Those of you in high school, as boring and annoying as high school may be enjoy it!!!! The next year after graduation will be filled with confusion, stress, exhaustion, hours of just pondering life, and a lot decisions you don't feel you are ready to make.

  85. K 7

  90. Hailey Michael

    I wish I could've heard this when I was 6 because I felt like I had to be 15 when I was only 8 and now here I am 15, just started high school and everything feels like too much and I don't want to grow up anymore

  91. Midnight Wish

    I'm in middle school next year i'll be in 7th grade and i wish i could say this to my 5 year old self

    Kenzie Teague

    Midnight Wish There’s gonna be a lot of things you wish you could go back and say to your old self, trust me, I know, but have no regrets! Our mistakes make us who we are. Just remember and hold onto the little things in life. One day you’ll be like me and getting ready to graduate and won’t have time to still be little...

    Stupid Idiot
