Matilda the Musical - This Little Girl Lyrics

(Performs - Miss Honey)

Stop being pathetic, Jenny.
Stop pretending, Jenny,
That you are going to march in there
And give them a piece of your mind.
Leave it alone, Jenny.
The more that you try,
The more you'll just look like a fool.
This is not your problem.
You've not got the spine.
You are a teacher;
Just go back to school!

But this little girl...
This miracle...
She seems not to know
That she's special at all,
And what sort of teacher would I be
If I let this little girl fall through the cracks?
I can see this little girl needs
Somebody strong to fight by her side.

Instead she's found me,
Pathetic little me,
And another door closes,
And Jenny's outside.

[Thanks to Georgie & for lyrics]
