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,
