Little Hans

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

Freud's youngest patient

Little Hans little Hans what do you see

The worlds is full of big surprises

Little Hans little Hans what can they be

They come in many shapes and sizes

Little boys always love to play

But something is not quite right

Little Hans won't come out today

He's scared of a horse that might bite

Little Hans, little Hans how can it be

Your thoughts are filled with such confusion

Little Hans, little Hans when will you see

You're barking up the wrong conclusion

Professor man asks him oh so nicely

Why will you not come out

Little Hans tells him most politely

What he is thinking about

A ride in a tram, a lily white lamb, raspberry jam

Little Hans little Hans where will you go

The world is full of compromises

Little Hans little Hans how will you know

They come in many strange disguises

Professor man shakes his head and wonders

How will he work it out

Little Hans tells him quite precisely

What he's been dreaming about

I jump in the bath, I make myself laugh

I ride a giraffe

Little Hans little Hans I found a clue

I think I've made the right connection

Little Hans little Hans all I can do

Is give a common-sense injection

Little boys grow up just like daddy

Professor man has no doubt

Little Hans goes to sleep and wonders

What he was talking about
