Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems
Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1954 and 1958 by the author, 1963 by Schroder Music Company. In the Table of Contents to her songbook Song in My Pocket Malvina writes of this song: "Not at all stupid--just modest, as are so many of our good citizens who leave the nation's business to shrewder and meaner heads."
I'm too dumb. I never studied law.
I'm too dumb. I'll tell you how I know,
And say, "Hey Jack, get off of my back, I'm NOT THAT DUMB."
