If You Were Only One Inch Tall

(instead of six-foot 'n' all ...)

 

Uncle Bob's Homage to Shel Silverstein

Hear and read the original.

If You Were Only One Inch Tall

If You Were Only One Inch Tall,
How would you get to school?
Would your micro-mini thumb land you
In a micro-mini carpool?

I  Y  W  O  O  I  T,
How would you read a book?
Would you wait for nosy Nancy to come
And steal a next-page look?

I  Y  W  O  O  I  T,
What would you do for sports?
Would you vault with a yellow number two,
Or wait to grow into your shorts?

I  Y  W  O  O  I  T,
How would you make a friend?
Would you keep your head and shoulders high
And ask kids end on end?

I  Y  W  O  O  I  T,
How would you find a date?
Would you seek a two-centimeter pal
Or risk a six-foot mate?

If you were only one inch tall,
Would it really matter ... at all?
