Little Little Man

Little Little Man

Little little man, little little man,
Set free your canary that wants to fly.
I am that canary, little little man,
Leave me to fly.

I was in your cage, little little man,
Little little man who gave me my cage.
I say “little little” because you don’t understand me
Nor will you understand.

Nor do I understand you, but meanwhile,
Open for me the cage from which I want to escape.
Little little man, I loved you half an hour,
Don’t ask me again.
