Subject: CRD: Short People by Randy Newman

This song is by Randy Newman. I'm not sure about the album name.
Great great lyrics. I heard that when Randy was in Italy he was attacked
by someone who took the lyrics too personally.
If someone knows more about this story, please tell me about it.
Meanwhile here are the lyrics and chords. Any corrections and stuff will
be fairly welcome.


Short People - Randy Newman

Intro: A | F#m7 | Bm7 | E7sus4 |  (x2)

A                F#m7       Bm7              E7sus4
Short People got no reason. Short people got no reason

A                F#m7            Bm7    E7sus4
short people got no reason to li - ive.  They got

A                A7/G
little hands and little eyes

D/F#                      F7
They walk around tell-in' great big lies. They got

A                A7/G
little noses and tiny little teeth, they wear

D/F#                    F7
platform shoes on their nasty little feet. Well, I


A     F#m7    Bm7   E7sus4
Don't want no short people   (x2)

A     F#m7    Bm7   E7sus4        A
Don't want no short people 'round here.

(Repeat Intro once) and go to


Dmaj7            A/C#             Bm7         D/E
Short people are just the same as you and I  (A fool such as I)

Dmaj7       C#m7               Bm7
All men are brothers until the day they die

It's a wonderful world.

A                F#m7    Bm7              E7sus4
Short People got nobody. Short people got nobody

A                F#m7        Bm7      E7sus4
short people got nobidy to lo - ove.  They got

A                A7/G
little baby legs and they stand so low

           D/F#                 F7
You got to pick them up just to say hello. They got

A                   A7/G
little cars that go beep beep beep. They got

D/F#                A7/G
little voices going peep peep peep. They got

A                         A7/G
grubby little fingers and dirty little minds

D/F#                  F7
They're gonna get you every time, well I

A     F#m7    Bm7   E7sus4
Don't want no short people   (x2)

A     F#m7    Bm7   E7sus4        A
Don't want no short people 'round here.

(Repeat Intro and fade)_
