"Little James" as written by and Liam Gallagher....
Little James, we're all the same
They always seem to look to us
But we weren't meant to be grown ups
Thank you for your smile
You make it all worthwhile to us

You live for your toys, even though they make noise
Have you ever played with plastercine
Or even tried a trampoline
Thank you for your smile
You make it all worthwhile to us

I'm singing this song for you and your mum that's all
'cause it won't be long before everyone is gone

Sailed out to sea, your mum you and me
You swam the ocean like a child
Life around us was so wild
Thank you for your smile
You make it all worthwhile to us

I'm singing this song for you and your mum that's all
And it won't be long before everyone is gone

    General CommentI heard this song was Liam singing to his stepson or something. Can anyone clarify that?

    General CommentThis song goes to prove that this guy is absolutely rounded and the best musician since John Lennon in my opinion, Little James is the son Patsy Kensit & Jim Kerr of well known Scottish Band Simple Minds where he was lead vocalist, Jim was also married Chrissy Hynd of the Pretenders before that,. So little James has had a few masters teaching him the way----- we watch this space James. Oh aye I think the song is brilliant and that it rings a lot of similar bells globally-thanks Liam

    General Commentas the boys of Oasis have always done they sometimes borrow from the Beatles. This song seems to be heavily influenced by "Hey Jude".

    General CommentThis song just stinks. I love Oasis but the main songwriter of Oasis was, is and will always be Noel Gallagher. Liam can't really write songs -I agree with Eatcarpet-. The only decent song that Liam brought us was Songbird from HC and it's not as good as the main highlights in the album -composed, obviously, by Noel-. In Don't Believe The Truth Liam seems to have improved his songwriting skills but it's still too far from Noel's skills. The best non-Noel song of DBTT is Andy Bell's song: Turn Up The Sun, a great rockin' song. It has the same opening effect in DBTT that the song "The Hindu Times" has in the album Heathen Chemistry.

    General CommentThis song is not junk! It's not the best song ever, but it's enjoyable. Stop getting your opinions fed to you. It's great.
