One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces (live at 9:30 Club)

Original Artist: Ben Folds

[Thank you, and uh, the last time Ben was in New York some of you saw him, I was lucky enough to have him up, on my show, he came up with his piano, he said the next tour is going to be a little different - would you please give a warm Riverside welcome to Ben Folds!]


September '75
I was 47 Inches high
my mom said by Christmas I would have
a bad-ass mother G.I Joe
for you little minds to blow
I still got beat up after class - yeah!

Now I'm big and important
one angry dwarf and
200 solem faces are you
if you really want to see me
check the papers and the tv
looks who's telling who what to do

Kiss my ass
goodbye

so don't give me that bullshit
you know who I am
I'm your nightmare little man
Vic you stole my lunch money made me cry
Jane remember second grade?
Said you couldn't stand my face
rather than kiss me you said you'd rather die

Now I'm big and important
one angry dwarf and
200 solem faces are you
if you really want to see me
check the papers and the tv
looks who's telling who what to do

Yeah - Kiss my ass
Goodbye

Awwwwwww shit


You'll be sorry one day
yeah you will - yes you will
you shouldn't push me around
cause I will - yes I will
you will be sorry when I'm big
yes you will - yes you will
you will be sorry

'cause I'm big and important
one angry dwarf and
200 solem faces are you
if you really want to see me
check the papers check the tv
oh, no, looks who's telling who what to do

kiss my ass - motherfucker

thank you!
