These hand me downs I am wearing
Are worn at the knees, color faded...hey
All the little children are laughing.
I'm trying to find a reason to keep from cryin'...hey

I'm just a little girl,
I'm Rageddy Ann
Making Believe I'm happy, hey...Rageddy Ann
Falling apart at the seams.

The tears that I covered with patches
Red & yellow paterns, nothing i own matches, hey
Where I have them sewn with black stiches
Remain exposed to be soiled and tattered, hey.

I'm just a little girl
I'm Rageddy Ann
Making believe I'm happy, hey...Rageddy Ann
Falling apart at the seams...

So when did I get so broken?
I wouldn't notice...
Everything just breaks away from me.
Hey! When did I get so broken?
I wouldn't notice...
Everything important leaving me.
Falling apart at the seams.

All the busy people keep walking away
Like they can't see me or anything.. hey
Everyday it gets a little harder to believe in magic & people, hey.

I'm just a little girl
I'm Rageddy Ann
Making believe I'm happy, hey...Rageddy Ann.
Falling apart at the seams.

    General CommentThis song almost made me cry...because i felt like that doll. I was broken and falling apart, while everyone around me enjoys life i suffer. I loss faith in magic and more so people everyday
