I walk in, I ain't too dumb I know I got some handicaps t'overcome I mean y'seen one midget, y'seen 'em all Oh yeah, midget, oh yeah, small And that's as far as you can see Is that the sum And total substance of me? Midgets dwarfs chimps in a zoo They all look alike to you Well listen good 'cause I don't lie There's a whole lot more to me Than meets the eye And it fills my little soul with midget hate The way that people will not learn To differentiate, yeah, sure midget That's what you say And that's as far as it goes But have you ever said That's a Hungarian midget? Or that's a midget With a wart on his nose? Have you ever taken the time to notice A midget with curly hair It isn't fair, there are skinny midgets Fat midgets, gay midgets, flat midgets There are midgets in deep despair Half a soul half a brain, half a heart And twice the pain, sure they're cute And they're a lot of fun But would you want your sister To marry one? Midget small, that's it and that's all The classification it is made Midget runt, well, now I gotta be blunt I wish I was born I wish I was born a spade Sure I would still be a midget But I would have such Such beautiful coloration And among my fellow midgets I would be a sensation Talk about standing out in the pack I wish I was black Midgets dwarfs chimpanzees Ain't it all relative When you're on your knees? So don't tell me, don't tell me About minorities I wish to Christ, I wish to Christ I was black
