"My Shorty" was written & originally performed by members of the group "The Grand Skeem" under the song name "Shorti". Here are close to Aaron's lyrics based on the original:

My Shorty (M. Sandlofer/A. Theodore)

Hey girl keep your head high
I never said I
Wouldnít be back when I'm leavin' on the red eye

Gotta do this show so I can get my dough,
Blow, then lay low with you and I
Hookiní up at the house on the top of the hill
Where we can drop and get ill
A little spot where we can chill
Or hide out whenever things get real
Shorty, wontcha tell me how ya feel
If I peel
How can I be sure
That your love remains here
When I gotta go
Until we get this clear
Ya just gotta know
When youíre not there I be so tight
No matter what I try it, it wonít go right

My Shorty
Cuz you got my back
My Shorty
We keep it real like that
My Shorty
I wanna be where you at
My Shorty
Thatís why I feel like that

When Shorty ain't around
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me
When Shorty ain't around
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me

On tour two months, 8 weeks, 60 days later
I pushed so many groupies off
One I even made her cry
I had to tell her I really didnít hate her, right?
I couldn't lay a while
Cuz we had to say goodbye
I never thought that I
Would ever see that day that I
Fall for her the way that I did
So I say that I
Never stray cuz I find a better way when I
Hold it down, keep it tight
I could never say goodbye

My Shorty
Cuz you got my back
My Shorty
We keep it real like that
My Shorty
I wanna be red hot
My Shorty
Thatís why I feel like that

When Shorty ain't around
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me
When Shorty ain't around
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me

When Shorty... When Shorty ain't around
When Shorty... When Shorty ain't around

When Shorty ain't around
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me
When Shorty ain't around
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me

When Shorty ain't around (When Shorty ain't around)
I donít feel right
My Shorty
My baby
My lady
Come with me

(repeat until fade)
