“Blow me a kiss from across the room.

Say I look nice when I’m not.

Touch my hair as you pass my chair,

Little things mean a lot.

Give me your arm as we cross the street

Call me at six on the dot.

A line a day when you’re far away,

Little things mean a lot.


Don’t have to buy me diamonds or pearls

Champagne, sables, and such.

I never cared much for diamonds and pearls,

‘Cause honestly, honey, they just cost money.


Give me a hand when I’ve lost the way,

Give me your shoulder to cry on.

Whether the day is bright or gray,

Give me your heart to rely on.


Send me the warmth of a secret smile

To show me you haven’t forgot

That always and ever, now and forever

Honey, little things mean a lot.”


This pretty little song means a lot to me. Written by Edith Lindeman and

Carl Stutz  in 1953, it became a #1 Billboard hit
