A LITTLE BIT'S A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN NONE AT ALL
 
div
 
Under a chestnut tree sat Sammy Small and Sally Lee
'You are the one that I can't see
You're just a trifle small for me,' said she
I must wed a man that's tall, six foot tall or none at all
You're such a little bit I fear.
Then Sammy said, 'Look here, my Dear,

Chorus: A little bit's a whole lot better than none at all
If you can't get the big things here, don't overlook the small
For it's better to love a short man than never have loved at all
A little bit's a whole lot better than none at all.'


Underneath this same old tree, said Sammy Small to Sally Lee
'I've ten millions cash I guess,
Now you can have it all if you say Yes'
Sally dropped her head so shy, winked her eye, and said so sly,
'Ten million ought to last awhile and then she added with a smile.

Chorus: A little bit's a whole lot better than none at all
If you can't get the big things here, don't overlook the small
For it's better to love a short man than never have loved at all
A little bit's a whole lot better than none at all.'
