Do you think this song is offensive?

So this song is by Randy Newman. It's fairly old but I personally like it. Someone told me they think it's offensive and I want to know if people on GAG think the lyrics are offensive. If you want to listen to the song look it up on YouTube. Type in Short People by Randy Newman. I'd like you all to take time to listen to the song it's actually pretty funny.

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 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
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

What Guys Said 3

  • Yeah, but it's kind of silly, so I doubt a short person would take it seriously? I don't know. Height can be a super sore spot for guys.
