shirley temple dancing


No words to express my love for this video. The cuts and timing are right on the money.


When I am twenty-one I wish that I could look
Like the picture that I saw in a pretty story book;
Little girls were standing there much tinier than me
And they all carried baskets, they looked happy as can be,
Every one was smiling and having lots of fun;
I wish that I could be like that when I am twenty-one.

Shirley Temple performs ‘When I Grow Up’ in Curly Top, 1935.
