They Are All So Freakin' Tall (Anthem for Shorties)
« on: February 01, 2010, 02:29:13 AM »
I'm relatively short for a guy ( 5'8 ), and lately it seems like every guy I see on campus is taller than me - so I wrote this anthem for us short people! I think it's a break-through song for me as far as song-writing/producing progress goes. :P New style; feedback much appreciated!

LYRICS:
Spoiler: You'll need this :p • show



My best friend is much taller than me
He's 10 feet high I'm 2 feet tall,
he throws me like a basketball
         
I slide through the hoop and cannot help but think
One day I'm gonna rule it all,
I'll be the player and not the ball

I carry around a boulder to stand on
when we take pictures together (Boohoo)

When we go indoors he hits his head on second floor
as I breeze through the doggy door

Oh he's .. just .. so damn .. TALL!
(They're ALL so fricken tall)

It's no fair,
I pull my hair,
I drink my milk and say my prayer

Calcium-god,
dear laughing cow,
You can press my button now

~~~

Darth Vader: "Luke . . . what really made me turn to the dark side . . . was foreseeing your shortness."
Luke: "NOOOoOo--!!"

~~~

I've never seen a running parade
Never got to drop an icecream cone
on an uncle's balding head

I spiked my hair to better compare
Then drew a face on my spikey hair
pretending to stare

Oh I should marry CN tower to
get some height in the DNA

Hugging her concrete may be cold in the Winter
but at least she's used to PDA

And they're still .. all .. so damn .. TALL!
(I’m not short, they're all just tall!)

It's no fair,
I pull my hair,
I drink my milk and say my prayer

Calcium-god,
Dear laughing cow,
You can press my button now

Any time now
Any time now
Any time now
..(+x4)

Any time now,
oh the world's gonna fade away
Any time now,
all our frailties will cease to weight

Any time now,
The laughing cow'll press my button

Any time now
Any time now
(+x4)

Any time. . .

~~~

So the laughing cow does not care for me, I say:
"That's okay, cause you just suck,
go get headshot by a puck"

Who needs to grow up to be Paul anyway?
I bet he had to pick up poo from
his blue ox Babe every single day

Maybe the reason I'm not growing is
I'm just not whining nearly enough

Whine, whine, whine whine whine whine whine whine whine whine..-
Someone please call the waaambulance

All I want .. is to .. be damn .. TALL!
(They're ALL so fricken tall)

It's no fair,
I pull my hair,
I drink my milk and say my prayer
Calcium-god,
Dear laughing cow,
You can press my button now

It's just no fair,
I pull my hair,
I drink soy milk and say my prayer
Calcium-god ,
Dear Mr. Bean,
Won't you press my button now



Laughing Cow cheese. Me like:

It's awesome :>
It kinda reminded me of Carefree Day (just a little). You chose nice instruments and the song has an encouraging tune. Best of it are the jolly lyrics ("When we go indoors he hits his head on second floor as I breeze through the doggy door"  :kardiansmile:).

Though I'm not short, I really enjoyed this song. Great job. :~

c: Yeah, it does share some characteristics of Carefree Day. The verses before the lead-up to the chorus also share the same chord progression and structure.

After I finish it, I'm going to try to make a Facebook group for it and try to run it as the shorties' anthem. :P Should be fun despite whether or not it takes off.

5'8" isn't that short ._. It's just that I'm 6 feet (or near 6 feet)

Great song

I confess. I laughed. Quite a bit.
Reminds me of how my friend complains that she drinks so much milk but never grows.
Do you really dread being short? o.O

This is an awesome song. The instruments are a bit unusual, but I liked it nonetheless. I never considered myself short, but... *shrug*
Yesterday I was at my grandmothers, and for some mysterious reason, she glued the top of a Laughing Cow cheesebox to her wall in the kitchen, near the window. I was instantly reminded of the song, and started laughing, and she didn't get it at all... (my grandmother is around 150 cm, a bit taller, but not much). xD

Spoiler: show
btw, here in Hungary, we don't really make the connection between milk and growing tall (although we do consider the calcium thing xD). We rather say "eat your pottage or you won't grow", or there's that thing about eating carrots and learning how to whistle... xD
