IRVING BERLIN lyrics - The Little Things In Life

IRVING BERLIN
"The Little Things In Life"

[Verse:]
Great big houses with great big rooms
Were not fashioned for brides and grooms
A little place is where we should be
Great big troubles and great big cares
Come from houses with marble stairs
A little place for you and for me

[Refrain:]
Just a little room or two can more than do a little man and wife
That's if they're contented with the little things in life

Living on a larger scale would soon entail a lot of care and strife
We could be so happy with the little things in life

A little rain, a little sun, a little work, a little fun
A little time for loving when the day is done

And a little thing that cries for lullabies could make a man and wife
Tell the world how much they love the little things in life
