"Empire State Human" as written by Ian Craig Marsh, Philip Oakey and Martyn Ware....
Since I was very young I've realised
I never wanted to be human size
So I avoid the crowds and traffic jams
They just remind me of how small I am
Because of this longing in my heart
I'm going to start the growing art
I'm going to grow now and never stop
Think like a mountain, grow to the top
Chorus :
Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will crawl, crawl, crawl
Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall
Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will crawl, crawl, crawl
Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall
With concentration
My size increased
And now I'm fourteen stories high
At least
Empire State Human
Just a born kid
I'll go to Egypt to be
The pyramids
(Chorus) over :-
Refrain 1 :
Brick by brick
Stone by stone
Growing till he's fully grown
Brick by brick
Stone by stone
Growing till he's fully grown
Refrain 2 :
Fetch more water
Fetch more sand
Biggest person in the land
Fetch more water
Fetch more sand
Biggest person in the land
(Refrain 1)
(Chorus) over :-
(Refrain 2)
(Refrain 1)
(Refrain 2)

    General CommentIt's about someone who simply wants a bigger role in the land. It could also be about growing up.

    Lyric CorrectionThe real lyrics:

    Since I was very young I realized
    I never wanted to be human size
    So I avoid the crowds and traffic jams
    They just remind me of how small I am
    Because of this longing in my heart
    I'm going to start the growing art
    I'm going to grow now and never stop
    Think like a mountain, grow to the top

    Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
    As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
    And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will crawl, crawl, crawl
    Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall
    Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
    As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
    And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will crawl, crawl, crawl
    Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

    With concentration
    My size increased
    And now I'm fourteen stories high
    At least!!

    Empire state human
    Just a born kid
    I'll go to Egypt to be
    The pyramids

    Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
    As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
    And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will crawl, crawl, crawl
    Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall
    Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
    As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
    And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will crawl, crawl, crawl
    Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

    Brick by brick
    Stone by stone
    Growing till he's fully grown

    Brick by brick
    Stone by stone
    Growing till he's fully grown

    Fetch more water
    Fetch more sand
    Biggest person in the land

    Fetch more water
    Fetch more sand
    Biggest person in the land
