"Small Fry" as written by Hoagy Carmichael and Frank Loesser....
Here comes that good for nothin' brat of a boy
He's such a devil I could whip him with joy
He's been carousin' at the burleycue
Just watch me teach him with the sole of my shoe
Small fry, struttin' by the pool room
Small fry, should be in the school room
My my, put down that cigarette
You ain't a grown-up high and mighty yet
Small fry, dancin' for a penny
Small fry, countin' up how many
My my, just listen to me
You ain't the biggest catfish in the sea
You practice peckin' all day long to some old radio song
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes
You better listen to your Paw and someday practice the law
And then you'll be a real success, yes
Small fry, 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 got your feet all soakin' wet, you'll be the death of me yet
Oh me, oh my, small fry
