It's Only A Wee Wee

From the album Ebenezer's Make Over Buy Now

- gender issues? Who me!?

IT'S ONLY A WEE-WEE

As soon as youre born grown-ups check where you pee

And then they decide just how you're supposed tbe

Girls pink and quiet, boys noisy and blue

Seems like a dumb way to choose what you'll do

 

Cho: Its only a wee-wee, so what's the big deal?

Its only a wee-wee, so what's all the fuss?

It's only a wee-wee, and everyone's got one

Theres better things to discuss!!

 

Now girls must use make-up, girls names and girls clothes

And boys must use sneakers, but not panty hose

The grown-ups will teach you the rules to their dance,

And if you get confused, theyll say "Look in your pants!"

Chorus

 

If I live to be nine, I wont understand

Why grown-ups are totly obsessed with their glands

If I touch myself, . . "Dont you do that!" Im told,

And they treat me like I might explode!

Chorus

 

Grown-ups watch closely each move that we make

Boys must not cry, and girls must make cake

It's all very formal, and I think it smells

Lets all be abnormal and act like ourselves!!

Chorus

 

(Adult verse)

She walked to the market past brave cavaliers

She tried to avoid them, they whistled and jeered

She gave them the finger, they gave her more noise

She stopped and she sang to those bright little boys, . .

 

Cho:  It's only a wee-wee, so what's the big deal?

It's only a wee-wee, so why do you watch?

It's only a wee-wee, and everyones got one

There's more to life than your crotch!!
