The Lyrics

the opposite of the original. I'm 5'4" and i'm sick of trying to see over tall people at the movies or a hockey game.
Tall People got no reason
Tall People got no reason
Tall People got no reason
To live

They have huge hands
And monster arms
And they can't even
fit inside a car
They got giant noses
And enormous teeth
They wear too tall shoes
On their gigantic feet

Well, I don't want no Tall People
Don't want no Tall People
Don't want no Tall People
Round here
Tall People are just half as fast
As you and I
All men under 6'0" are brothers
Until the day they die
(It's An Average World)
Tall People got nobody
Tall People got nobody
Tall People got nobody
To love

They bump their heads
on a sign or a door
They have to shop
at the too tall store
They got big SUV's
That go zoom zoom zoom
They got loud voices
Goin' boom boom boom
They die much earlier
they can't accelerate
They're gonna bump their head every time
Well, I don't want no Tall People
Don't want no Tall People
Don't want no Tall People
'Round here
