he was only 3 ft 4

i was sitting on my bar stool,
drinking a cold beer.
when something walk up to me.
as i look down to the floor.

he was only 3 ft 4
when i'm only 6 ft 3 and a forth
saying how's the floor,

he look up to me ,with a sh*t eating grin
saying how would you,
like to pick up your teeth off
of this clean floor.
i said ,who do you think you are,
  little man,

next ,thing i knew .
i was on the floor,
picking my teeth off the floor,

he was 3 ft . 4.

how fast did he hit me ,
when i flew, threw the door.
he was fast as lighting
that is what thay said

HE WAS ONLY 3 FT.-4

i well never say that to another man again
