If only people could shrink
Our world wouldn't be so overcrowded
Bring ourselves down to size
There'd be so much more food to go 'round

Why don't we build a machine
With all the know-how of the industries
We put a man on the moon
On earth we'll need more room to breathe real soon

Drink your vaccine and let's shrink
And bring your poodle so it doesn't eat us
The roads will be so wide
No traffic jams when we're half a foot tall
Bring what you need down here
We'll shrink it all by microwave
Don't want to die like dinosaurs
We'll have enough resources to go round


So now you've made the big shrink
Meanwhile we'll keep acting big
We well-bred beautiful people
Who says we have to go too?
Cops and Mason businessmen
Were exempted from the ovens
As if you weren't already.
The rest of you are all our termites now

    This was the first punk song i ever heard i was about 10 years old and i fell in love with the dead kennedys their still my favorite band this is a really fun and crazy song with a wacked out premise but its got a point and its also a metaphor at the last part where he says 'as if you werent already, youre all our termites now' meaning theyve got all the power and were basically termites to the cops and business men. just a kickass song in general though.
