Randy Newman: Short people got no reason to live!

Short people got – no reason,
short people got – no reason,
short people got – no reason to live.
They got – little hands,
little eyes,
they walk around telling great big lies,
they got – little noses,
and tiny little teeth,
they wear – platform shoes on their nasty little feet.

(Chorus)

Well, I- don’t want no short people,
don’t want no short people,
don’t want no short people ’round here!

Short people are just the same as you and I,
(A fool such as I!)
all men are brothers until the day they die.
(It’s a wonderful world!)

Short people got – nobody,
short people got – nobody,
short people got – nobody to love.
They got – little baby legs,
they stand so low,
you gotta – pick ’em up just to say hello.
They got – little cars that go beep, beep, beep
they got – little voices goin’ peep, peep, peep.
They got – grubby little fingers,
and dirty little minds,
they’re gonna get you – every time.

(Chorus)

Well, I – don’t want no short people,
don’t want no short people,
don’t want no short people ’round here!

    Its a nice song kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk I think I can sing it and then compose a song in honour of US, small people 🙂

  2. You are of course an exception to the lyrics above! However, there are just too many songs in praise of small and regular sized people, so I thought I’d quote the lyrics of this classic, here on my web page… I should love to hear your interpretation! 🙂
