It was first recorded by Dante & His Friends; The Beach Boys recording for their 1962 album Surfin' Safari is much better known. The song is known by various names, including "Miss America" and "Little Miss America".
"Little Girl" is a simple song about a teenager's infatuation with a girl. Unlike the other Beach Boys covers from this era, Brian Wilson changed the form of the song quite a bit, making adaptations and rearranging the song to make it more suited to The Beach Boys.
