IT’S ONLY A WEE-WEE, SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
As soon as you’re born grown-ups check where you pee G-C
And then they decide just how you’re supposed t’be D-D7-G-(C-G)
Girls pink and quiet, boys noisy and blue G-C
Seems like a dumb way to choose what you’ll do D-D7-G-(C-G)
Cho: It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s the big deal? G-C
It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss? D-D7-G
It’s only a wee-wee, and everyone’s got one G-C
There’s better things to discuss!! D-D7-G-(C-G)
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!”
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!
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!
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!!
