lyrics

SHORT & SWEET

When considering the measure of manly might
don't believe what you've heard of that age-old hype
it's not the length of the lover that makes him right
there's more to a man than inches and height
He could be short and sweet, diminutive in style
with compact delights so crazy and wild

Widen your horizons, lower your sites
Forget the verticality and take my advice
if you're lookin' for lovin' in the heavens above
you could be missin' the kissin' here near the ground
He could be short and sweet, diminutive in style
with compact delights so crazy and wild

Instead of long and lanky,
I'll take mine small and swanky
The apple of my eye ain't even five feet five
He's short and sweet, diminutive in style
with compact delights that drive me,
so crazy and wild
