Little People
The White Stripes Lyrics


There's a little girl who says bing bing bomb
There's a little girl who says bing bing bomb
Hello
Oh, oh

There's a little boy with a spider in his hand
There's a little boy with a spider in his hand
Hello
Oh, oh
There's a little girl with the red shoes on
There's a little girl with the red shoes on
Hello
Oh, oh

There's a little boy with twenty five cents
There's a little boy with twenty five cents
Hello
Oh, oh

And there's a little girl with a tiger on her bed
There's a little girl with a tiger on her bed
Hello
Oh, oh

There's a little boy with nothin' on his mind
There's a little boy with nothin' on his mind
Hello

Robyn


on Candy Cane Children

The meaning of this song is basically saying the older you get, the less fun Christmas becomes usually do to adulthood. The lines "don't you know your name?...", probably refers to the adults telling kids to grow up as if they're saying "Do you know how old you are? You're getting too old for this stuff." Probably why he put the lines "nobody knows how to talk to children". Also, he puts the lines "think again" after a thought of one of the kids thinking of wishing to participate in Christmas activities. As if they're thinking "Yeah I probably AM too old for this.." "364 more tears girl" the sadness of getting older. Not participating feels like a missed opportunity and causes even more sadness..
