There’s one big mistake for which I’m not to blame
‘Tis the reason I didn’t grow tall
And it makes my cheeks blush for to hear the girls sing
My man you’re a little too small
You are a little too small young man
You would not suit me at all
You’re young I know perhaps you may grow
At present you’re a little too small.

One day when out walking I chanced for to meet
A wee girl a school pal of mine
I asked her if she would be my wife
And if at her house I would call
She says I’ll ask mother but really I think
You’re a little too small
You‘re a little too small young man
You would not suit me at all
You’re young I know perhaps you may grow
At present you’re a little too small.

A few weeks ago my rich uncle died
In which I came in for a share
And these were the words my lawyer said
My man you’re a young millionaire
Congratulations the very next day
The girls at my house did call
Excuse me young ladies but really I think
I am a little too small
I am a little too small young girls
I would not suit yous at all
I am you know perhaps I’ll grow
But at present I’m a little too small.
