Small Fry   Lyrics: Frank Loesser, Music: Hoagy Carmichael. Performers: Bing Crosby and Johnny Mercer, Hi-Lo's

Small fry, struttin by the pool room
Small fry, should be in the school room
My, my put down that cigarette
You ain't grown up high and mighty yet

Small fry, dancin for a penny
Small fry, countin up how many
My, my just listen here to me
You ain't the biggest catfish in the sea
You practice peckin all day long to eome old radio song
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes
You better listen to your (maw, pay)
and someday practice the law
and then you'll be a real success

Yes, small fry, (you) kissed the neighbor's daughter
Small fry, (should) stay in shallow water
Seems I should take you cross my knee
You ain't the biggest catfish in the sea
You've got your feet all soakin wet
You'll be the death of me yet
Oh me, oh my, small fry
