Little Eyes or Little Lize (Lil' Lize) is a folksong that is popular in Cornwall, England, UK, although it originated in America. It was written by Buford Abner of the Swannee River Boys in the late 1940s or early 1950s. The first known recording is from the 1950s by an American harmony group called the Delta Rhythm Boys.
Cornish miners working in America brought the song back to Cornwall and it was later taken up by a group from Camborne called the Joy Boys. After a few alterations it became a local hit and is still sung widely across Cornwall, but is rarely heard elsewhere.
The English band Crowns, cover the song on their 2012 album Stitches in the Flag.
