A pro-kid song

"Just Because We're Kids" (Download MP3)
Sung by Billy Burnette. Writer Unknown
From the "Just Because We're Kids" Single (1964)
Lyric Source: Repeated listenings, mistakes possible

Just because we're kids
Because we're kind of small
Because we're closer to the ground
And you're much bigger pound for pound
You got no right
You got no right
To boss and shove us little kids around

Just because your throat
Has got a deeper voice
With lots of wind to push it out
At little kids who don't dare shout
You got no right
You got no right
To boss and shove us little kids around

Just because you've got whiskers on your face to shave
You treat us like a slave
So what? That's only hair
And because you got a wallet near your heart
You think you're twice as smart
You know, that isn't fair

But we'll grow up some day
And when we do, I pray
We won't just grow in size and sound
Or just get bigger pound for pound
'Cause I'd hate to grow
Like some adults I know
Who boss and shove us little kids around
Just because we're kids


-- heard by me this morning on the radio show Greasy Kid Stuff (rendition played wa ssung by Tommy Rettig) (lyrics here)
