The world is too big

/ The world is too big

 

 

The world is too big,

thereís too many folks.

I want to get to know them all,

But hell! so much socializing

would indeed be a joke.

 

The world is too big,

so many gullies and mountains to climb.

I want to walk them all,

but in this one little life

there isnít enough time.

 

The world is too big,

sitting within a universe thatís even bigger.

And itís making me

feel so small,

just a wee little nipper.

 

The world is so big

I think Iíll go back inside.

Lock the doors

of my little house,

and hide.
