One Inch Tall
If you were only one inch tall , you'd ride a worm to school.
The teardrop of a crying and would be your swimming pool.
A crumb of cake would be a feast
And last you seven days at least ,
A flea would be a frightening beast
If you were one inch tall .
If you were only one inch tall , you'd walk beneath the door ,
And it would take about a month to get down to the store .
A bit of fluff would be your bed,
You'd swing upon a spider's thread ,
And wear a thimble on your head
If youwere one inch tall .
you'd surf across the kitchen sink upon a stick of gum
you could't hug your mama , you'd just have to hug her thumb .
you'd run from people's feet in fright ,
To move a pen would take all night ,

Cause I'm just one inch tall )
