No Me Gustan Pantelones
We like shorts because we have great legs
And we can't do splits in our pants
We like shorts because it gets too hot
And we can't express ourselves
Gymnasts wear shorts, not pants
Climbers wear shorts, not pants
Old dudes wear pants...
No me gustan pantalones
pero me gustan pantalones Cortos
...y El helado
We wear shorts in the summer and we like to feel the breeze,
on our knees, we like to go outside because we're delirious.
Boxers wear shorts, not pants
Spongebob wears shorts, not pants
Vampires wear pants...
No me gustan pantalones,
Pero me gustan pantalones Cortos
...y El HELADO
Behind The Music
When James Allison and Jacob Halpern met their collaborating students at Grizzell Middle School, they quickly started writing the lyrics for their song. Each weekly visit from the musicians produced more lyrics, and the group was on track to finish the lyrics during the musicians’ fourth and final visit to the school. When James and Jacob arrived that fourth day however, the lyricists were in a goofy mood. Centered around the goofiness was a conversation about the fact that summer was coming and soon it would be shorts season. James and Jacob at first attempted to steer the group back in to finish the lyrics they had been working on. After a few minutes, though, it was clear that this was not going away. Epitomizing the fluid and organic processes that go into songwriting, the group decided to scrap the lyrics they were working on and wrote new lyrics within 15 minutes.
