It's Only A Wee-Wee

From the album Uniforms Buy Now

 

As soon as you’re born grown-ups check

     where you pee

And then they decide just how you’re supposed t’be

Girls pink and quiet, boys noisy and blue

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

 

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

It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss?

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

There’s 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, they’ll say “Look in

     your pants!”

 

Chorus

 

If I live to be nine, I won’t understand

Why grown-ups are tot’ly obsessed with their glands

If I touch myself, ... “Don’t you do that!” I’m 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

Let’s 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 everyone’s got one

There’s more to life than your crotch!!
