Short Bader


Short Bader got no reason
Short Bader got no reason
Short Bader got no reason
To live
He’s got little patience
And little mind
His little ego
Got a great big size
He’s got little fuse
You never gonna know
Just what’s gonna
Make him wanna go
Well, I don’t want no short tempers
Don’t want no short tempers
Don’t want no short tempers
‘Round here
Short Bader just shifts the blame
On you and I
(He’s livin’ the lie)
“Boo Radley was snippy
Until the day she died”
(You can’t polish this turd)
Short Bader got nobody
Short Bader got nobody
Short Bader got nobody
For friends
Thinks second base is his and
He don’t wanna yield
You got to pick him up
To get him off the field
He got a little voice
Goin’ yap, yap, yap
All his teammates
Are sick of his crap
His little free library
Has gotta be the best
He can’t give things any rest
Well, I don’t want no short Bader
Don’t want no short Bader
Don’t want no short Bader
‘Round here

  1. Okay, so we have a student who was notoriously hot-headed BEFORE his dad “killed a student” and went to prison. Now he’s one misunderstood remark away from going postal. And from all appearances he got zero attention from the school — no counseling, no anger management. Does Mrs. Pearl WANT a mass shooting?

  2. Bader has little excuse here, EVERYONE on this year’s baseball team is short. That’s about the only thing we do know about any of the other players.

  3. Note to Dafne: you chose to interview Barry Bader. This was your decision alone. If it turns out to be the worst hour of your life, it’s all on you.

  4. I don’t get it… Is she a reporter or a shrink?

  5. I’m tired of saying “This would never happen, and shouldn’t,” but at least we’re finding out how Barely got to be such a sorehead. Del clearly has even move to answer for than we have already seen.

  6. hitorque hit the nail on the head…she sounds like a goddamn therapist..her next question should be “do you think that others don’t like you because you think that you’re short?”

  7. We need a category for parody songs as we have quite a collection now. Great job teenchy! I remember that song coming out when I was in 8th grade and there were 2 short kids in my class and I still think of em when I hear this song. One of them unfortunately committed suicide a few years back; but I doubt his shortness had anything to do with it. I’m sure he wound up at normal height, but I didnt know him at all after high school.

  8. […] said instead.  Dafne’s casual side eye can only mean one thing: “Now I know where Barry gets it from.”  Nothing is ever the fault of Bader père et […]
