Lyrics

Original

Opening

Dave: They're big, I'm little They go, I twiddle Why can't little guys do big things too?

Song

King Saul: You're not going to sing, are you?

(Dave nods his head "yes")

King Saul: Couldn't you just play your harp And I'll throw things at you?

(Dave shakes his head "no")

King Saul: Oh.

Dave: You're big, I'm little My head only comes to your middle But I say little guys can do big things too.

King Saul: Yes, but Goliath, he's...

Dave: He's big, but God's bigger And when I think of Him, that's when I figure With His help, little guys can do big things too.

King Saul: Oh, I see what you're saying... Alright, I understand, now let's suppose that this is true

You still look rather wimpy, but I know what we can do

Just step behind the curtain, it will only take a minute

There's a closet in the corner and you'll like what I've got in it.

You'll find my royal armor there, don't dally, put it on.

Yes, now you'll look much bigger when the battle lines are drawn.

One more thing you need, I think, pick up my royal sword.

It's a big one, and a beauty, the best I could afford.

Once you've got it all together, I think you will agree.

You're bound to do much better if you try to look like me.

Oh dear.

Dave: You know, I think maybe I should just be plain old me.

King Saul: Oh, yes, well, I suppose. But have you seen Goliath? He's, he's just, he's...

Dave: He's big, but God's bigger.

And when I think of Him, that's when I figure...

King Saul: With His help, little guys can do big things?

Dave: With His help, I know I can do big things!

Both: With His help, little guys can do big things too-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.

King Saul: Alright, if you're sure you know what you are getting into...Oh dear...

2012 Version

Opening

Junior: They're big, I'm little.

My head only comes to their middle.

But I say little guys can do big things too.

Larry: Giant Goliaths and big bruisers...

Junior: ...with giant muscles and huge shoes-ers

Bob: Huge shoes-ers?

Larry and Junior: They're both big, but little guys can do big things.

With God's help, little guys can do big things too.

Middle

Junior: Big vikings

Goliath: Who robbed and pillage.

Larry: And don't share with others in their village.

Junior: Find out that little guys can do big things too.

They're big, I'm little.

But I make potholders for their griddles.

Larry, Goliath, and Junior: With God's help, little guys can do big things too.

Closing

Junior: Big's big, but God's bigger.

And when I think of Him, that's when I figure...

All: With His help, little guys can do big things.

Junior: With His help, I know I can do big things!

All: With God's help, little guys can do big things too.
