Verse:
You love to flirt and you don't mean to hurt, But you leave those who love you to sigh,
Each heart's a flow'r that you want for an hour, Then for -get like a gay but -ter -fly.
But -ter -flies play in the sum -mer sun, But are they gay when their day is done?
 
Chorus:
Tell me why you keep fool -ing, Lit -tle co -quette?
Mak -ing fun of the ones who love you.
Break -ing hearts you are rul -ing, Lit -tle co -quette
True hearts ten -der -ly dream -ing of you,
Some day you'll fall in love as I fell in love with you.
May -be some -one you love will just be fool -ing,
And when you're all a -lone with on -ly re -gret
You'll know Lit -tle Co -quette, I loved you.
