Short Riders Got No Reason To Live

My awesome friend Todd posted this over on Sport-Touring.net in response to a post about women motorcyclists in particular and short riders in general. I haven’t laughed so hard in …. well, in a long time. I think Randy Newman really missed an opportunity here to market his song to motorcyclists. 😉

Short Riders got no reason
Short Riders got no reason
Short Riders got no reason
To live

They got little hands
Little eyes
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 Riders
Don’t want no Short Riders
Don’t want no Short Riders
`Round here

Short Riders 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 Riders got nobody
Short Riders got nobody
Short Riders got nobody
To love

They got little baby legs
That stand so low
You got to pick ’em up
Just to say hello
They got little bikes
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 Riders
Don’t want no Short Riders
Don’t want no Short Riders
‘Round here

    No, that just won’t do. Someone must compose a tune to go with it and market it. Peep, peep, peep…

    Oh, it is — it’s a song called “Short People” by Randy Newman. I’d totally forgotten about it before Todd changed the key lyrics. 🙂

    That song is hilarious. I wish someone would do karaoke with the ‘short rider’ lyrics. I’d love to hear that!
