One Meat Ball

The little man walked up and down
To find an eating place in town
He read the menu through and through
To see what 15 cents would do
One meat ball, one meat ball
He could afford but one meat ball

He told the waiter close at hand
The simple dinner he had planned
The guests were startled one and all
To hear the waiter loudly call
One meat ball, one meat ball
This here gent wants one meat ball

The little man felt ill at ease
He said, some bread sir, if you please
The waiter hollered down the hall
You get no bread with one meat ball
One meat ball, one meat ball
You get no bread with one meat ball

The little man felt very bad
Cause one meat ball was all he had
And in his dreams he hears that call
You get no bread with one meat ball
One meat ball, one meat ball
You get no bread with one meat ball
