Song: I Want A Little Girl

Written by Billy Moll, Murray Mencher

I WANT A LITTLE GIRL, written by Billy Moll and Murray Mencher, has been performed by countless legendary vocalists and musicians. Jazz pianist Count Basie liked the song so much that he recorded it 16 separate times from 1940 to 1972! More recently, blues/rock veteran Eric Clapton released I Want A Little Girl on his 2001 Reptile album. Other outstanding performances include those by Benny Goodman (1958), Nat King Cole (1958), Louis Armstrong (1946) and blues great T-Bone Walker, who recorded the song several times. I Want A Little Girl was featured in the acclaimed film Jammin' The Blues and also appeared on the soundtrack album (along with two other great SB songs Indiana and Way Down Yonder in New Orleans).
