"Mr. Small" Words and Music by Glenn Page, Copyright 1997.
I know a man who knows it all He's not much more than three feet tall He's always looking down Even though he's on the ground That's why they call him Mr. Small
He's got a wife to call his own He calls her lots of things at home But in the real world His voice is seldom heard And so they call him Mr. Small
Living on a dead end street Judging all the folks he meets Even though he meets no one at all
He wants to buy some real estate As if somehow that compensates He'll crawl into his hole Where there should be a soul And dwell on all the things he hates
La la la la la la la la
Mr. Small, life ain't fair No one seems to know you're there And the world - they don't care at all
He'll say that I'm not worth a damn 'Cause I don't make 100 grand He might think I'm poor But I've got so much more Than Mr. Small can understand I'm trying hard to be a man I'm happy just the way I am
