Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

If You Were Little

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1975 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2003.

If you were little,
I'd put you in my pocket,
I'd take you home and rock you
In my old rockin chair.
I'd tell you funny stories,
And feed you strawberry shortcake,
Without too much sugar,
And wash you in the bath tub,
And brush your crinky hair.

If you were little,
No bigger than a kitten,
I'd tuck you in my pocket
And carry you around.
I'd feed you strawberry shortcake
Without too much sugar,
And when my special friends came by
I'd even let them hold you,
Because I am so proud.
