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 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

interesting info on height


In the 18th and 19th centuries, descendants of Europeans living in North America were far taller than those in Europe. In fact, they were the tallest in the world. The original indigenous population of Plains Indians was also among the tallest populations of the world at the time.[1] Several nations, including many nations in Europe, have now surpassed the US, particularly the Netherlands, the Scandinavian nations and the people from the Dinaric Alps, in south-eastern Europe. The people from the Dinaric Alps are the tallest in the world (186 cm for males).


The Netherlands was in the late nineteenth century a land renowned for its short population, but today it has the 2nd tallest average in the world,[2] with young men averaging 183 cm (6 ft) tall and only shorter than the peoples of the Dinaric Alps (Montenegro, western Bosnia, coastal and hinterland Croatia and a part of Slovenia), although the tallest of all are the Serbs living in Serbia proper as well as in Republika Srpska, where males average 186 cm (6 ft 1.1 in) tall. The Serbs and Dutch are now well known in Europe for extreme tallness. In Africa, the Maasai are known for their tallness.


Average male height in impoverished Vietnam and North Korea[3] remains comparatively small at 163 cm (5 ft 4 in) and 165 cm (5 ft 5 in), respectively. Currently, young adult North Korean males are actually significantly shorter. This contrasts greatly with the extreme growth occurring in surrounding Asian populations with correlated increasing standards of living. Young South Koreans are about 8 cm (3 inches) taller than their North Korean counterparts, on average. There is also an extreme difference between older North Koreans and young North Koreans who grew up during the famines of the 1990s-2000s.
