Letra y composición: Lorenz Har y Richard Rodgers
Interpretación: Janis Joplin
Sit there and count your fingers,
what else is there to do?
And I know how you feel,
I know you feel that you're through,
Sit there and count your little fingers,
my unhappy little girl, little girl blue.
Sit there, count those raindrops,
don't you feel 'em falling down all around you,
don't you know it's time,
I feel it's time,
somebody told you 'cause you got to know
that all you ever gonna have to count on
or gonna wanna lean on,
It's gonna feel just like those raindrops do
when they're falling down all around you.
I know, I know you're unhappy.
Sit there, go on, go on,
count your fingers.
I know what else, what else have you got to do.
and I know how you feel,
and I know you ain't got no reason to go on,
I know you feel that you must be through
go on and sit right back down,
I want you to count, count your fingers,
my unhappy, my unlucky,
and my little, little girl blue.
I know you're unhappy,
I know, I know just how you feel.
Janis cantó este famoso tema en numerosos conciertos y presentaciones entre 1968 y 1969, interpretaciones que fueron recogidas en muchos de los LPs y selecciones musicales elaborados tras su fallecimiento, en 1970.
