“I'll be here tomorrow
Alive and well and thriving
I'll be here tomorrow
It's simply called surviving
If before the dawn
This fragile world might crack
Someone's got to try
To put the pieces back. pic.twitter.com/8eQbccBqXW

Little made her TV debut in 1974, appearing on the high-rating daytime program The Mike Walsh Show, which was then airing on Network Ten.
