Three Little Pygmies
A Pygmy Folk Hero Is Something To Be
They wanted a child to pack off to school,
And though mum and dad were both six feet tall,
They gave birth to a pygmy
But there were no pygmy schools,
So this little pygmy felt comprehensively small.
… and in the back of a car the size of a home,
This little pygmy felt so alone.
Lifetimes from now, but just a passport away,
A large crowd of people celebrate a great day:
The reincarnation of Pygmy Rinpoche,
Who will sit on a mountain like it was a throne -
O this little pygmy will feel right at home.
Now, it shattered my mind, the truth, when it came,
As it struggled to fit inside this pygmy’s brain;
How these two pygmies could be both one and the same.
But back in the present, I hope you’ll agree,
A pygmy folk hero is something to be.
Yes, a pygmy folk hero is something to be …
But if you want to be a pygmy
You’d better be small like me.
