The Lyrics

A tribute to Bob Dylan and Steve Martin
They'll shrink you when they see you walking tall.
They'll shrink you when you're up against the wall.

They'll shrink you when you're talkin' with your mouth full,
They'll shrink you, then you'll crawl into a mouse hole.

And soon, they find you muttering in the hall,
"Everybody must get small."

They'll shrink you if you're doin' right or wrong,
Knowing you were little all along.

They'll shrink you when you try to write a spoof,
Then show you that you're dumb, with all the proof.

No need for you to do a thing at all.
They tell you, "Everybody must get small."

They'll shrink you even though you're one foot eight,
At a table where you're unable to reach your plate.

They'll shrink you 'til you're buried in your clothes,
And have you look up at them from between their toes.

So shortened, you won't have too far to fall--
Yeah, everybody must get SMALL.

"Getting small" was a comedy routine from Steve Martin, back when he did stand-up. It's from the late 70s, so maybe you weren't born yet?
Could almost be a tribute to Lily Tomlin and The Incredible Shrinking Woman.
