Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Big People

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1960 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1988.

Big people are bottoms of skirts
And jeans right down from their knees, yo yo,
And voices that come from way up in the trees, yo yo.
Kid people have faces with mouths and eyes,
And they're just the right size.
Big people are all around you
And sometimes they get in the way,
And sometimes you have to listen to what they say, yo yo.
