"Your Feet's Too Big" is a song composed in 1936 by Fred Fisher with lyrics by Ada Benson.[1] It has been recorded by several artists including the Ink Spots and Beatles, George Melly and was a hit for 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, "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.
