“It’s Only a Wee-Wee” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Peter Alsop.
Tune: Peter Alsop.


As soon as you’re born, grown-ups check where you pee.
And then, they decide just how you ought to be!
Girls pink and quiet; boys noisy and blue.
Seems like a dumb way to choose what you’ll do!

Well, it’s only a wee-wee, so what’s the big deal?
It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss?
It’s only a wee-wee, and everyone’s got one.
There’s better things to discuss!

Now, girls must use make-up, girls’ names, and girls’ clothes.
And boys must wear sneakers but not pantyhose.
The grown-ups will teach you the rules to their dance.
If you get confused, they’ll say, “Look in your pants!”

Well, it’s only a wee-wee, so what’s the big deal?
It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss?
It’s only a wee-wee, and everyone’s got one.
There’s better things to discuss!

If I live to be nine, I won’t understand
Why grown-ups are so obsessed with their glands.
If I touch myself, “Don’t you do that!” I’m told.
And they treat me like I might explode!

Well, it’s only a wee-wee, so what’s the big deal?
It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss?
It’s only a wee-wee, and everyone’s got one.
There’s better things to discuss!

Now, grown-ups watch closely each move that we make.
Boys must not cry, and girls must bake cake.
It’s all very formal, and I think it smells.
Let’s all be abnormal and act like ourselves!

Well, it’s only a wee-wee, so what’s the big deal?
It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss?
It’s only a wee-wee, and everyone’s got one.
There’s better things to discuss!

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.
So she stopped and she sang to those bright little boys!

Well, it’s only a wee-wee, so what’s the big deal?
It’s only a wee-wee, so what’s all the fuss?
It’s only a wee-wee, and everyone’s got one.
There’s better things to discuss!
