Your A Little Too Small

Cat. #0142 (MFH #728) - As sung by Mrs. Molly Babcock, Fayettville, Arkansas on June 21, 1958

VERSE 1
I'm one of th jolliest young fellows you know
Who always enjoys a good time
I pay up my debts wherever I go
I'm willing to spend my last dime

VERSE 2
I've one great misfortune tho' I'm not to blame
Because that I don't grow tall
I think it's a weak anbondible shame
For to say, I'm a little to small

VERSE 3
O yes, your a little too small, young man
You never would suit me at all
Your young, I know and perhaps you may grow
But at present your a little too small

VERSE 4
One eve while out walking by chance I did meet
A lady, a schoolmate of mine
While escorting her home, of course it was agreed
I took her that evening to dine

VERSE 5
I ask her if I might be at her escort
And at her home I might call
She said, I'll ask ma but I surely believe
She say, your a little too small

VERSE 6
O yes, your a little to small, young man
You never would suit me at all
Your young, I know, and prehaps you may grow
But a present your a little to small

VERSE 7
I had a rich uncle and when he died
Of course I come in for my share
And these were th very last words he said
My boy, your a young millionaire

VERSE 8
With congratulations so early next morn
Th ladies upon him did call
O, ladies, excuse me, I'm sorry to say
But a present your a little to tall

VERSE 9
O yes, your a little to tall, young girls
You never would suit me at all
Your young, I know, and perhaps you may grow
But at present your a little to tall
