"small fry" in lyrics

Giovanni Battista Fasolo - Passenger boat

The pot from Coviello,
From the Lombard, the tripe
From the Tuscan, the small fry
Let's keep their throats dry,

Passi - It's hot (37°2)

the news items, the fights in the block.
Zoom, close-up from head to toes.
Small fry and big fishes alike want to look important.
Bike sounds, one chasing the other

Queen - Death on Two Legs

Kill joy, bad guy
Big talking, small fry
You're just an old barrow-boy

The branches are filled with cherries and plums

Hey, small fry
Shall we do picnic

Gims - Bog roll life

And your spirits are dwindling
You and Kathrin are but small fry (1)
And nobody cares what you have to say

We were singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye

But I wear them and wish it was not always I
Who's the youngest young sister and the smallest small fry
The smallest small fry

Keane - The Frog Prince

Your fist at the sky
"Oh why did I rely
On fashions and small fry?"

Sektor Gaza - Mosquitoes

I move my ass back and forth, but I can't do anything about that.
The horde of mosquitoes, that infamous scum,
Being such a small fry managed to shit down our brains.

Post Malone - Spoil my night

Dropped plenty money on her thighs
There's plenty room in my ride
I've never been like a small fry
She took me in, that's on my life

Toploader - Achilles Heel

so what about me?
I said hello and goodbye but I don't know why
well while we're small fry
on the line

Arab - Coal dust
