I remember back when I was very small
There used to be this light switch in the hall
I was much too short to reach it so I couldn't turn on the light
My mom would have to turn it off at bedtime ev'ry night
And of course my dad could reach it and my sister could reach it too
But somehow I was just too small and what was I to do?

Well time went by and I just grew and grew
And I was tall enough - yes I was tall enough
I could stretch and reach the light switch in the hall enough
And I must have turned it on and off a hundred times a day 'cause I was
Tall enough
Hooray

Momma kept a sack of birdseed on a shelf
That everyone could reach except myself
I would stand up on my tip toes but I wouldn't quite reach the sack
It's not much fun to be too short to get yourself a snack
And of course my dad could reach it and my sister could reach it too
But somehow I was just too small and what was I to do?

Well time went by and I just grew and grew
And I was tall enough
I could stretch and reach that shelf up on the wall enough
And I bet I must have had a hundred snacks that happy day 'cause I was
Tall enough
Hooray

So if you can't reach the shelf up on the wall
Well no one can when they are young and small
'Cause everyone starts out little and then ev'ryone grows and grows
It's something very simple, something ev'rybody knows yes
Your dad was really little once your sister was little too
And even I was little once and then I grew and grew
And right now you're just tall enough for you

Oh yes you're tall enough - exactly tall enough
Exactly far enough and thin enough and small enough
And although you're growing taller in your very special way
Still you are tall enough today
Yes you're tall enough
Hoo-ray
