Hey Little Catfish
Author: Ben Laney

Hey, Little Catfish!
Where'd you get those great big blue eyes?
I say, Hey, Little Catfish!
Where'd you get those great big blue eyes?
The God who created earth and heaven
must've given you a piece of the sky

Hey, Little Catfish!
You light up my world with your smile
I say, Hey, Little Catfish!
You light up my world with your smile
I have never seen anyone like you
Sweet girl, you've got your own beautiful style

Hey, Little Catfish!
You may grow up fast and fly away
I say, Hey, Little Catfish!
You may grow up fast and fly away
But you'll be my Little Catfish,
My Little Catfish, forever and a day!

------- Author's Notes -------

This one I wrote for my darling daughter, Angel. She also has a Choctaw name besides this nickname I gave her. When she finds out I've posted this she may kill me! Oh, I should never have let her watch Charlie's Angels!! She just might give me one of those karate chops right to the neck! Oh, I know! Let's just not TELL her about it, okay? Thanks! ***Ben

Terrie*, please don't tell Angel.......

Terrie, please don't tell Angel I posted this one, okay? Ha! Ha! Haaaa! She thinks she's too big to be my "Little Catfish" now. She used to dance like a little monkey, waving her hands all around, and twisting her boo- tay when I sang this to her! I thank you for your comment on it and I am happy you think it's cool! Your encouraging words are very much appreciated, as always! ***Ben
