Little Girls from Annie is featured in Lights Out, the twentieth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Sue.
Blaine suggests to Sue that she should come back to McKinley and fix whatever occurred in Shooting Star. She sits in the school bleachers as she watches her enemy, Coach Roz Washington, train the Cheerios as Becky greets her, out of uniform, complaining about Coach Roz's teaching skills. Becky begs Sue to come back because she misses her, even though what Sue did was to protect Becky. But Sue admits that it's the best thing that has ever happened to her. When Sue tells Becky that she has spent most of her life training these Cheerios, she says she doesn't want to return back to that person.
The song begins as she gets up, closer to the Cheerios training, she pushes and throws Cheerios out of the way as they squeal while chucking their pom-poms. Despite that, some continue training. In the McKinley High School hallways, it's dark due to the power outtage but Sue sings as she tries to walk through, being pushed several times by Cheerios, then throwing another student who was talking to a girl. In the girls' bathroom, she opens cubicals and sings in one where a Cheerio is making out with a guy, and then into another one where one is waiting for her pregnancy test results. Eventually she sits in one, and when she shuts the cubical door, she's back at the bleachers as all Cheerios are lying around, as if they are dead or exhausted as she completes the performance. It seems though that it was all a hallucination as she's back where she and Becky were seated.
Everywhere I turn I can see them
Night and day
I eat, sleep and breathe them
I'm an ordinary woman
I like a man to nibble on my ear
Though I'll admit no man has bit
So how come I'm the mother of the year?
How I hate
And each little bloomer
I'd have cracked
If it weren't for my
Sense of humor
Some women are dripping with diamonds
Some women are dripping with pearls
Lucky me! Lucky me!
Look at what I'm dripping with
Everything around me is little
If I wring
Their little necks
Surely I would get an acquittal
I'll step on their freckles
I'll straighten their curls
Send a flood
Send the flu
Anything that You can do
To little little little
Little little litt... uhm, little
Oh, little girls
Some day I'll land in the nut house
With all the nuts and the squirrels
There I'll stay
