Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Don't Let Him In

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1978 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2006.

Don't let him in without that safety skin,
Or first thing you know your belly starts to grow.
Fifteen minutes fun
And your lifetime freedom's gone, gone, gone.
Be cool, be wise, and stay your normal size,
Just look in his eyes and say
"Are we prepared, my friend?
Because I do not intend to get stuck.
And I don't rely on luck,
Not me."
