The girl makes a sign, puts a tablecloth on the table, and gets the straws ready and then patiently waits for customers. Up the street comes a Chinese woman and her young son. The little girl tells them that lemonade is 50 cents per glass. The woman open her wallet and all she has is foreign currency. The girl says that they accept Hong Kong dollars too.

Lemonade 50 cents. I take Hong Kong dollars.

Thank heaven for little girls 
For little girls get bigger every day 
Thank heaven for little girls 
They grow up in the most delightful way 
Thank heaven for them all 
No matter where, no matter who 
Without them what would little boys do? 
Thank heaven 
Thank heaven
