(Small sad Sam, small sad Sam)
Here's a tale of a man who was puny and weak
Stood four foot six in his stocking feet
Kinda narrow in the shoulder and heavy in the waist
Everything about him seemed to be misplaced, small Sam
(Small sad Sam)

He slid into town one rainy night
Running like a dog away from a fight
He had a pretty big mouth for a guy his size
And everything he said was a pack of lies, small Sam
(Small sad Sam)

One day he got on a downtown bus
First thing you know there was an awful fuss
They threw Sam off into the street
For trying to steal an old lady's seat, bad Sam
(Small bad Sam)

One day nobody knows what for
An elevator stuck on the eighty-fifth floor
Some cables broke and so it's said
That car just hung there by a thread
The women were calm and the men were balm
But Sam screamed and cried like a little child
He squeezed himself through the emergency door
And pulled himself up to the eighty-sixth floor,
Small Sam, chicken Sam (Small chicken Sam)

And then instead of helping others get free
Sam said, "I'm looking out for me"
The cable snapped and all the way down
They cursed out Sam when they hit the ground, small Sam
(Small sad Sam)

Now someday Sam's gonna get his due
And when he does I'll make a bet with you
There ain't nobody even gonna pass a hat
Cause Sam was nothing but a no good cat
(Small sad Sam) Yes, small Sam
(Small sad Sam) Chicken Sam
(Small sad Sam) No good Sam
(Small sad Sam)

(Small sad Sam)
