Lyrics

THREE FEET TALL
Music and Lyrics by Denver Casado

Seems like
All we ever sing are songs about being happy
All we ever sing are songs that make you smile
All we ever sing are songs about bluebirds and sunshine
How ’bout everybody listen to us awhile

We want to sing about
Why the chocolate milk is oh so hard to open!
Will we ever grow, who knows, but here’s to hopin’!
Mom! It’s so embarrassing to hold hands at the mall!
Yea that’s what you sing, when you’re 3 feet tall!

But
Then we go to school and learn new songs about friendship
Then we go to school and sing ’bout right and wrong
Then we go to school and get dressed up as munchkins and flowers
How ’bout everybody let us write our own song
We’d write a song about

That kid Craig who always steals our ball at lunchtime
Sure I like to pick my nose, but is it a crime!?
Dad! You think you’re funny but you’re really not at all!
Yea, that’s what you sing, when you’re 3 feet tall!

Oh why can’t we
Ride a roller coaster?!
Oh why can’t we
Order grown up meals?!
Please don’t buy me
One more spongebob poster
Just know how it feels, to

Always be the one who has to sit in the middle
Always be the one with ice cream where we’re sad
Always be the one who gets tucked in with stories, and kisses
Hm, Maybe being little really ain’t so bad
Maybe being little really ain’t so bad
