The Lyrics

...as sung by gulliver
strung up by these folks, small
short but very clever
never saw such wee ones
tiny men...quite cute
small ones...cute...small ones...cute

if i ever get out of here...board my ship and i'll sail away
though i've found a rarity...all i want is the ocean's spray
if i ever get out of here...if i ever get out of here

well, the ropes eroded...and my ties were smashed
my binds unwrapped and flung
and those people there...looked so shook up and scared
they thought their lives were done

land of the runts...land of the runts
and this sailor man...raised up his hand...and greeted everyone
in the land of the runts...land of the runts
land of the runts...land of the runts

though they sought escape, i was a friendly guy
and joined in with their fun
and we all were dancing in the village square
and i stepped on not a one

land of the runts...land of the runts
and this sailor man...put off his plans...to sail into the sun
from this land of the runts...land of the runts
land of the runts...land of the runts

but then fate came calling...in this tiny world
from the folks in the next town
cause in blefuscu there were war plans prepared
but resistance soon was found

land of the runts...land of the runts
and the foe was crushed...the cannons hushed
and peacetime had begun
in the land of the runts...land of the runts
land of the runts...land of the runts

This parody was no modest proposal. It was real swift of you, Alvin.
