Bigger Isn't Better Song Lyrics

 
Barnum Cast
Barnum Soundtrack - Musical, 2002
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Bigger Isn't Better Bigger isn't better
Taller isn't braver
Stronger isn't always wise

Smaller isn't necessarily the lesser
Guts can come in any size



Lady luck can favor
Just a little shaver
Over one who's 6-foot-3

Brains in any tussle
Mop the floor with muscle
Bet your life I'm glad I'm me

(Chorus:)
Bigger isn't keener
Larger isn't bolder
Higher might be low inside
When you need to lean upon a friendly shoulder
Narrow's just as good as wide
See the mighty lion sittin there and crying bitten by a tiny flea
Mammoth was colossal what's he now? A fossil!
Bet your life I'm glad I'm me

What strong and hope they lag along
Get brains and heart
That handsome hunk might be a Lilliputian medley,
Proven consequently...
Though he shows his shoulders twice as big as boulders
If his brain's a tiny pea
When your in a pickle
He ain't worth a nickel
Bet your life I'm...Bet your life I'm glad I'm me

(Spoken)
Ladies and Gentlemen together for the first time
Mister PT Barnum's two star attractions
General Top Dog and Jumbo!

That's some elephant!

Aw, isn't the little guy cute?

Let me see, let me see!

BRANDON, get back here!

I'm OK Mom!

(Back to Singing)
The dinosaur's no more, the dear old dodo's dead,
But right there on that floor some ants will still be treadin after Armageddon
Bet there isn't a hero, weight is less than zero
Height ain't worth a hoot in hell
Show me any hunk of man to match the spunk of
Tiny Tim or Little Nell
Giants look so awesome folks are scared to cross em'
None the less I guarantee
Small as Yankee Doodle if he's in the moodle beat the whole
Caboodle using just his noodle...
Bet your life I'm glad I'm ME!!!
