No Me Gustan Pantelones

Lyrics

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 
(repeat) 

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.
