Short People Lyrics

Artist: Randy Newman

Short People
Randy Newman

Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
To live

They got little hands
And little eyes
And they walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little fett

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
And they stand so low
You got to pick 'em up
Just to say hello
They got little cars
That got 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

From: Childuf60s

In case you didn't notice, this song is talking about infants, so stop being offended...
by Kat on 7/8/2008 2:40pm
I don't think this song was ment to be about short tempered people or closed/short minded people.
by fuck beth on 7/12/2008 5:51am

haha your all idiots arguing over the internet.
Have you got anything better to do?
guess not

by 2tall on 10/11/2008 3:01pm
Obviously, this song is not about short people at all. (It would just be wrong to make a song like that.) I feel it's about how ignorant being prejudice is and how stupid it makes people look and sound. Every individual has a reason to live and no one can change that!
by silly people... on 10/24/2008 6:27pm
This song was obviously not meant to be taken seriously. It is written as a metaphor for racism and other types of prejudice. People take things too literally sometimes...
by matty on 11/11/2008 4:23am
I hate short people like Gina
by Cyborg on 12/4/2008 1:45am
(more from "The Wacky Top 40", p. 151)(Rock On): Newman has written hits for many other artists , including Bette Midler , Judy Collins, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Ringo Starr, Gene Pitney, Ray Charles, Art Garfunkel, and Dusty Sringfield. He wrote the smash "Mama Told Me(Not To Come" for Three Dog Night. "I was never crazy about tunes," Newman confessed. "The song is about a fool at a party, that's all. I don't think it would be a hit." Among his movie soundtrack gigs were: Paranthood , Three Amigos , The Natural , and the Oscar-nominated Ragtime. (Newman also co-wrote the screenplay for Three Amigos and had a big part in it. He played a singing bush!) He also scored several national TV commercials for such clients as Dr. Pepper, Nike, Nutrasweet, and Apple computers.

yes i love this song its super super tight bro
by Josh on 12/11/2008 11:29pm
I hate this song. & Randy is stupid.(:
by mejanemd on 1/9/2009 3:31pm
silly people is right on target. It was write to ridcule people who hated another for being different. Hating another for being another race, or for having a different way of living. If you can hate people for that why not for being short. I mean that makes just as much sense. Really this is an attempt to raddle you into thinking about prejudice of any type.

by htrhrt on 2/6/2009 10:50pm
everyone who is insulting short people should drown themselves
by rl on 2/6/2009 10:55pm
what fuck beth said was extremely mean and incosiderate. put yourself in my shoes for once (im only 4 ft. 10.)
by lin on 3/22/2009 12:12pm
Oh my God! Are you people so ignorant - this is a song about prejudice, not about short people. Just insert any other group: Black people, fat people, brown people, old people. Did you completely miss the part in the song that says:
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)
Randy Newman is criticizing people who judge others based on how they look. You know who I am prejudiced against, people who jump to conclusions without thinking!
by jmh on 4/23/2009 10:59pm
"fuck beth" and everyone else who is prejudice against anybody: short people, tall people, blacks, whites, anybody of any race or size should torture themself, then take a shot gun and shoot themself in the face.
by JJ on 5/25/2009 11:39am
"fuck beth" is a retard. I am 4ft. 7" and people ridicule me all the time. Short peolpe are the same as every one else. This song was used to show how prejudice people are even though they are only different physically. Mentally they are the same as you except you don't give them any chances
by JLH21 on 6/30/2009 2:01pm
I must say this has been quite amuzing! Thank you all for being so entertaning in your own way! hahaha
by don't need a name besides GOD on 1/8/2010 9:16pm
no all u tards r stupid for saying short ppl dont have the same feelings as tall people (not being mean in anyway my little friends). all people are the same, they live a life and die just like everybody else in the world. they are as normal as anybody else in the world. the only difference is that they are short. they couldn't pick their size it all happened cuz chose them that way. they are normal, so if any of u dumbasses have a problem with little people just come find me
by Turtle on 5/8/2010 2:54pm
I love this song! Its the funniest thing I have ever hear in my whole life! I love it. I downloaded it on my Ipod and on to my phone! Lolz. This is awesome. Thanks for writing this Randy!! :)
by Yeah, ok on 5/15/2010 7:17pm
Thank you jmh. I'm prejudice against ignorant people, so I'm going to go shoot my self in the face with a shotgun now.
by SHORT PEOPLE R KOOL! on 5/15/2010 9:03pm
Short people will rule the world!
by Teon on 7/24/2010 8:27pm
Please read Lin's comment on 3/22/09. I couldn't have explained the true message of these lyrics any better. Also, Randy Newman is very short, somewhere around 5'3".
by sheep taste good on 10/18/2010 2:12am
if there was one reason that i dont like short people that would be becos there is a short person in my life who narks at everything i do and makes up a whole lot of shit.

by 2 U HATERS!!! on 11/23/2011 3:53pm
I'm 6'4" and my 1st wife was barly 5'0". She was a terrible person, so I put her on a Wheat Thin and swallowed her whole...awful. She didn't taste good but at least she had good taste.
by Rachelle (: on 3/14/2012 11:40am
im short (5') but this song is funny
by RandyWHO? on 4/3/2012 8:04am
Actually the song isn't funny, or clever...just a mean spirited guy with very mediocre talent, venting on why small guys have much bigger dicks than him. The guy is a mere twat.
I could understand why 'tards may have a little chuckle, and maybe someone should write a song about them.
I think this ditty is where it should be, more or less forgotten and never to be played again.
by Tee Tee on 4/5/2012 12:43am
Uhmm There is Nothing Wrong With Us Short People Hell Last Time i Checked Tall Dudes Love Short Girls So Uhm Yeeah Fall Back With The Bull Shit

by victoria. on 6/9/2012 5:18pm
I'm 4"11. Maby 5" ppl who cridisize anyone is crude and must have no confidence in themselves so they go pick on others everyone is special in there own way short tall what ever u ppl that make fun r loozers
by terri on 12/20/2012 4:17pm
This is a song about prejudice against all different peeps..(remember chorus by the Eagles?). How about we write a little jingle about people who argue online & say nasty things to each other? Now some of Randys lyrics of Short People would suit them! @@ this is going to be fun! Thanks for all the great songs, Randy. :)
by Pats on 2/18/2013 5:31am
Short people are evil they take out their anger of being little on the world
by standing up for Beth. on 12/31/2013 9:05pm
I don't care what this song is about. Why the Fuck would you make fun of Beth for asking people to not make fun? Do you guys feel hardcore? She may be small but  She is still bigger and better than you. If she had no reason to live she wouldn't be alive. You guys are pathetic. Get over yourselves.
by Cimard on 5/16/2015 6:30am
Randy Newman is 1m60 (5'3) tall. But, anyone should realise that the song is satire without having to be told that. Randy Newman, the most talented songwriter of an era and the most misunderstood.
When (or if) cultural anthropological is being taught as a PhD subject in 300 years, you can be sure Randy Newman will be the subject of many lectures.

Las personas bajas gobiernan el mundo, las personas altas son cortas de mente.
