lyrics

When I was an itty bitty baby my feet looked like water skis
I had long skinny legs and long skinny arms and great big knobbly knees
My mother took one loving look as I began to bawl
She said with a smile, “Just wait a while this one’s gonna be too tall.”

Too Tall, my feet hang over the bed
Too Tall, I’m always bumping my head

Well people often ask me, “Do you play basketball?”
“How’s the weather up there?” and “How did you get so tall?”
Well it’s not from eating spinach or munching on string beans
The reason for my height is my family’s too tall genes.

Too Tall, my feet hang over the bed
Too Tall, I’m always bumping my head

My friends all said when I turn to the side I practically disappear
Toothpick, skinny bones, stretch and slim are some of the taunts I’d hear
You better watch out on a windy day, you might just blow away
I wished I could be the bionic man just to hear what they would say.

Too Tall, my feet hang over the bed
Too Tall, I’m always bumping my head

I’ve taken trips on aeroplanes with my knees buckled up to my chin
I’ve cracked my head on doorframes, almost every house that I’m in
And just for the record I’m not very good at basketball
Just some of the trials and tribulations of being too tall.

Too Tall, my feet hang over the bed
Too Tall, I’m always bumping my head
