"Little Girls" as written by and Danny Elfman....
I, I, I love little girls
They make me feel so good
I love, little girls
They make me feel so bad

When they're around
They make me feel
Like I'm the only guy in town

I love, little girls
They make me feel so good

They don't care if I'm a one-way mirror
They're not frightened by my cold exterior

They don't, ask me questions
They don't, want to scold me
They don't, look for answers
They just, want to hold me

Isn't this fun?
Isn't this what life's all about?
Isn't this a dream come true?
Isn't this a nightmare too?

Oh, oh, oh I love little girls
They make me feel so good
I love, little girls
They make me feel so, bad

When they're around
They make me feel
Like I'm the only guy in town

I love, little girls
They make me feel so, good

They don't care about my inclinations
They're not frightened by my revelations

Uh oh (uh oh), take a second (take a second)
Uh oh (uh oh), it's a mistake (it's a mistake)
Uh oh (uh oh), I'm in trouble (I'm in trouble)
Uh oh (uh oh), the little girl was just too little
Too little, too little, too little, too little

Isn't this what life's all about?
Isn't this a dream come true?
Isn't this a nightmare too?

And I don't care, what people say
And I don't care, what people think
And I don't care, how I look
When I'm down my street

They make me feel so--
I love, little girls

They don't care if I'm a one-way mirror
They don't care about my cold exterior

They don't (they don't), ask me questions (ask me questions)
They don't (they don't), want to scold me (want to scold me)
They don't (they don't), look for answers (look for answers)
They just (they just), want to hold me (want to hold me)

Uh oh (uh oh), I'm in trouble (I'm in trouble)
Uh oh (uh oh), the little girls was just too little
Too little, too little, too little, too little
Too little, too little, too little, too little

Isn't this what life's all about?
Isn't this a dream come true?
Isn't this a nightmare too?

Oh, oh, oh, I, I, I love little girls
They make me feel so good
I love, little girls
They make me feel so, bad

When they're around
They make me feel
Like I'm the only guy in town

I love (I love), little girls
They make me feel so good
I love

    General CommentWell, I shall agree with Quazimofo. That is mainly what the song is about. However, Oingo was attacked on many occasions for this SCANDALOUS!song, which brought about Danny's explanation about the lyrics. He apparently had seen many wannabe movie producers riding around in their cars with very young girls, and it disgusted him so much to the extent that he wrote this song. He also added how small and immature the girls looked that they wouldn't ask any questions as to what they were doing - they would simply DO it. It's another one of Danny's songs that, although sounds incredulous to hear, really has something serious and mature behind it. I'd think its like Imposter. This song means to me that Danny's an articulate guy, even when he's screaming about liking little girls. :D

    General CommentClearly the Elfman and the boys were trying to be a little alarming with this song's lyrics, but, I think it is also easy to see that it could be more about (probably shallow) relationships with younger women, as opposed to minors. Even the line about "Uh oh, the little girl was just too little" could simply mean that she wasn't emotionally ready for the relationship, perhaps. I posted these lyrics here, because everywhere else I've seen them, they had many errors in them. I hope these are accurate!

    My InterpretationNew theory: This is actually Danny Elfman admitting to his Macro/Micro fetish.

    General CommentWell, when Danny explains why he wrote a song, you're not gonna say thats a bunch of bull shit cause he wrote the song!

    However, I also think this song could defend pedophiles. They can't help what they feel. Pedophiles and other sexual minorities are wrongly persecuted all the time. And just cause a pedophile is with a young girl, does not mean she is a victim. There is something you call a teleiophile. Not to mention, pedophile is not synonymous with child molestor. There is a big difference.

    General CommentFirst off, I don't think Danny is a pedophile, but he sure does know how to get inside the mind of one. Actually, he has a talent for getting inside the minds off all kinds of socially deviant characters, because in his own way, he is one. And because he's a social deviant of a different kind, he can get away with writing a song on a topic most writers would consider taboo. And if the story is true, (I haven't looked into its validity), he can get away with freaking out Girl Scouts.

    Songs can have several different intended meanings (as in what the writer had in mind), and even more unintended meanings to listeners. I wonder if the explanation that Danny gave is only one of several messages he had in mind. Speculating that he may have actually written it about pedophiles seems reasonable enough. But then, there are lots of psychological similarities between what goes on in Hollywood that Danny was talking about and men who are actually attracted to underage girls.

    General CommentI agree with both the opinions. It is a great song about the expectations that young women have versus the more mature women. The inference might be that a more jaded outlook on relationships (via the older women) may not be preferred. The "look for answers" and "scold me" are not very conducive to a relationship. Elfman walks that fine line and this makes the song work. Great hooks and melody and singing work also!
