Levi wants to be taller (Attack on Titan)

Long story short, I have been watching Attack on Titan, aka Shingeki no Kyojin ( 進撃の巨人 ).
Youtube was nice enough to bring this to my attention:

“I Wanna be Tall by Levi”

It’s a parody of the anime’s opening theme, and the fact that Captain Levi is only 160cm tall. He doesn’t appear to actually have an inferiority complex over his height, but it sure is funny to imagine. The video’s images are pretty self-explanatory, but if you’d like to sing along, I painstakingly typed out the lyrics here. The video has its own credits, so I’m not going to bother listing them.

Lyrics are basically expressing that his “height is not enough!” xD

I just about died when the singer started listing famous persons that are also notably short in stature. xD I mean really, who wouldn’t think of Edward Elric?!
