About Your Feet's Too Big

"Your Feet's Too Big" is a song composed in 1936 by Fred Fisher with lyrics by Ada Benson. It has been recorded by many artists, notably the Ink Spots and by Fats Waller in 1939. The song became associated with Waller who ad-libbed his own lyrics such as "Your pedal extremities are colossal, to me you look just like a fossil" and his catchphrase, "You know, your pedal extremities really are obnoxious. One never knows, do one?" It was performed in the 1978 revue of Waller tunes, Ain't Misbehavin'. The TV comedy series Harry and the Hendersons used Leon Redbone's version of the song as its theme tune. The film Be Kind Rewind used Fats Waller’s version of the song, although Mos Def recorded his own rendition of the song as recorded by Waller for the aforementioned film.

Who's that walkin' 'round here? 
Mercy! 
Sounds like baby patter 
Baby elephant patter, that's what I calls it

Say, up in Harlem, at a table for two, 
There were four of us, me, your big feet and you 
From your ankles up, I say you sure are sweet, 
From there down, there's just too much feet! 

Yes, your feet's too big! 
Don't want ya 'cause your feet's too big! 
Can't use ya 'cause your feet's too big! 
I really hate ya 'cause your feet's too big! 
Yeah! 

Lah-dee-doo-dah, 
Nah-dah-nah-dah 
Where d'ya get 'em? 
Nah-dee-ah-dah

Your girl, she likes ya, she thinks you're nice, 
Got what it takes to be in paradise 
She said she likes your face, she likes your rig, 
But, man, oh, man, them things are too big 

Oh, your feet's too big 
Don't want ya 'cause your feet's too big! 
Mad at ya 'cause your feet's too big 
I hate ya 'cause your feet's too big 

My goodness, gun the gunboats! 
Shift! Shift! Shift!

Oh, your pedal extremities are colossal 
To me you look just like a fossil 
You got me walkin', talkin' and squawkin', 
'Cause your feet's too big, yeah 

Come on and walk that thing 
Oh, I never heard o' such walkin', Mercy! 
You know your pedal extremities really are obnoxious. 
One never knows, do one?
