Song:- 'Little Things Mean A Lot'

Trying to find the full lyrics to this. Needed TOMORROW for 70th Birthday celebrations! Any/All help appreciated.

The cycle time at this site is such that there is no chance we could find lyrics for tomorrow.

On this site you can find that Kitty Kallen had a big hit with the song in 1954. That in turn should be enough to find the song on most lyric sites, for example on lyricwiki it is at:
