"The Midget's Lament" as written by and Dory Langdon Previn....
I walk in, I ain't too dumb
I know I got some handicaps t'overcome
I mean y'seen one midget, y'seen 'em all
Oh yeah, midget, oh yeah, small

And that's as far as you can see
Is that the sum
And total substance of me?
Midgets dwarfs chimps in a zoo
They all look alike to you

Well listen good 'cause I don't lie
There's a whole lot more to me
Than meets the eye
And it fills my little soul with midget hate

The way that people will not learn
To differentiate, yeah, sure midget
That's what you say
And that's as far as it goes

But have you ever said
That's a Hungarian midget?
Or that's a midget
With a wart on his nose?

Have you ever taken the time to notice
A midget with curly hair
It isn't fair, there are skinny midgets
Fat midgets, gay midgets, flat midgets

There are midgets in deep despair
Half a soul half a brain, half a heart
And twice the pain, sure they're cute

And they're a lot of fun
But would you want your sister
To marry one?

Midget small, that's it and that's all
The classification it is made
Midget runt, well, now I gotta be blunt
I wish I was born

I wish I was born a spade
Sure I would still be a midget
But I would have such
Such beautiful coloration

And among my fellow midgets
I would be a sensation
Talk about standing out in the pack

I wish I was black
Midgets dwarfs chimpanzees
Ain't it all relative
When you're on your knees?

So don't tell me, don't tell me
About minorities
I wish to Christ, I wish to Christ
I was black
