Found this song from back in the day.





Btw it is a satire on prejudice.

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
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

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
That stand so low
You got to 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
Well, I don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
'Round here

My oldest daughter absolutely HATES this song! She is only 5 foot tall, so that probably explains it. It probably doesn't help that her younger sister (who is 5' 10" tall) sings it around her just to get her riled up. Aaaaah- sibling rivalry doesn't end at adulthood!

Hehe, apparently this song caused a stir when it came out.


On the surface, the song is making fun of little people, but "short" is meant in a figurative sense, intending to poke fun at people who are short-tempered and small-minded SongFacts.com


I just can't stand his voice : /
