The Lyrics

Hannah Marie
Was a gal filled with life
And I thought she would
Make a wonderful wife
So, I bought a diamond,
Knelt down on my knees..
She said, "I'm sorry,
Your package don't please.."

So short, It's been good to know ya'
Too short, It's been nice to know ya'
Real short, it's been good to know ya'
But, about time for me to roam..
Gonna' find me somebody who's long

I latched with another
From dating on-line
We got together
And things seemed just fine
Until late one night when
Some romance began,
She said, "I want deep love
Not your wee three inch span!"

So short, It's been good to know ya'
Too short, it's been nice to know ya'
Real short, it's been good to know ya'
But, about time that I went home,
Gotta' find me somebody who's long..

Needless to say
I had given up hope
And felt like a guy
At the end of his rope
But then, I met Esther
Now, our love life clicks
She's my mighty midget
A mere three foot six..

She says, it's so good to know me
She thinks, it's so nice to know me
She stays..on top, not below me
We make love each night here at home
And to her, I'm somebody who's long
