    It's a nursery rhyme.

    Itsy Bitsy Spider - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It means that he's tiny.

    It probably means something like "little tiny".

    Re: Incy Wincy spider

    Hi Rona 12

    It comes from a children's nursery rhyme and is basically a "childish" way of saying "tiny, wee" spider.
    See:
    Incy wincy spider - encyclopedia article about Incy wincy spider.
    Itsy Bitsy Spider" (also known as "Incy Wincy Spider" or "Eency Weency Spider") is a popular nursery rhyme that describes the adventures of a spider as it ascends, descends and reascends the downspout or "waterspout" of a gutter system (or, alternatively, the spout of a teapot). It is usually accompanied by a sequence of gestures that mimic the words of the song.

    Hope this helps
    Regards
