Short People?!

Mar 14 2011

As always, I had a blast performing with my friend JD Boucharde last Friday at the Boat Club. One thing that bugs me though, is the fact that, because JD is taller than me, he likes to tease me by playing the song “Short People” by Randy Newman. We’ll, since I have a bit of a sense of humor, I’ve decided to bounce it right back at him with a few verses that can be added in to let him know how I feel about his tall, lanky and boney stature!
Here it goes……

Tall People
Tall people got no reason. Tall people got no reason.
Tall people got no reason to live.
They got long ass legs and big old feet that hang over the bed when they’re asleep. They’ve got to bend way over just to get through the door and when they fall down, boy it hurts even more.
Well I, don’t want no tall people. Don’t want no tall people.
Don’t want no tall people ’round here!

Tall people got nobody. Tall people got nobody.
Tall people got nobody to love.
They’re way up high and look overfed. They’re always setting their drinks on the top of my head. I’m gonna get me an axe and chop’em all down.
Then holler TIMBER before they hit the ground.
Well I, don’t want no tall people. Don’t want no tall people.
don’t want no tall people ’round here!

TAKE THAT JD! 🙂
