Song facts

From Wikipedia:

“Your Feet’s Too Big” is a song composed in 1936 by Fred Fisher with lyrics by Ada Benson. It has been recorded by many artists, notably the Ink Spots and by Fats Waller in 1939. The song became associated with Waller who ad-libbed his own lyrics such as “Your pedal extremities are colossal, to me you look just like a fossil” and his catchphrase, “You know, your pedal extremities really are obnoxious. One never knows, do one?” It was performed in the 1978 revue of Waller tunes, Ain’t Misbehavin’.

The TV comedy series Harry and the Hendersons used Leon Redbone’s version of the song as its theme tune.

The film Be Kind Rewind used Fats Waller’s version of the song, although Mos Def recorded his own rendition of the song as recorded by Waller for the film.
