Intro

Hey! I’m Little Minnie,
A little girl living in the big city.
Open up your eyes; ’cause I’m small-sized,
Face it: I could hula-hoop with a bracelet.


Do you know about Little Minnie?
A girl so small; she’s tiny, really.
Little Minnie is small like a little bitty kid,
Smaller than that, she isn’t big.
If there were a prize or award
For the world’s smallest girl, "I’d win!" I’m sure.
Little Minnie will never settle down,
Calm down or stay in the same town.
Always been on the move, she’s never lazy,
Ever since she was a baby.
Some think she’s from the center of the Earth, the core,
I don’t know; I’m not sure.
Doesn’t take big bites, Little Minnie nibbles,
Takes little bites; yep, it’s simple.
She plays the violin; it’s a little bitty fiddle,
She’s little, she’s smaller than a pickle.

Hey! I’m Little Minnie,
A little girl living in the big city.
Open up your eyes; ’cause I’m small-sized,
Face it: I could hula-hoop with a bracelet.


She needs a little bit of fuel in her little bitty car,
Fuel is like gasoline to make you go far.
It gives power to the motor, the engine,
The thing that makes her car move.
Did I mention? Did I already say the girl is mini?
Small as a kitty, and she’s pretty.
She’s got a little gap between her teeth,
A little space between her teeth. "You see?"
She’s wealthy; that means she has money,
She has a saddle and she rides on a bunny.
She named her bunny "Mummy"—isn’t that funny?
When she gets sick, her nose gets runny.
She’s a little bit of this, a little bit of that,
Little Minnie’s got what Little Minnie has.
A little bitty comb, a little bitty phone,
"Knock! Knock!" Who’s there? "Little Minnie’s home!"
She’s grown, but she didn’t grow much,
So small, she fits in the middle of a doughnut.
So what? She loves being mini,
A little bitty girl living in a big city.

Hey! I’m Little Minnie,
A little girl living in the big city.
Open up your eyes; ’cause I’m small-sized,
Face it: I could hula-hoop with a bracelet.
