The Lyrics

VERSE:

Cap'n Crunch, Cap'n Crunch
You're getting small
If you get much smaller, we won't find you at all
Candy bars, jelly jars,
The stuff is all shrinking at the groc'ry mall
What are we supposed to do,
Shrink our appetite's, too?

CHORUS:

Down Sizing, it's the name of the game
Down Sizing, package tiny's their aim
No products seem to stay the way they were
Now, all big thinking is to think, "Miniature"

Little bit,
Not half the size of it
Less, is the market tool,
Who do they fool?

Down Sizing, higher pricing ensues
Down Sizing, all us folks get the screws
It's dabby, it's shabby,
It's "In the back stabby"
All this Down Sizing, they do...

DKTOS, AFW...but I'll trust your pacing and give you 5s (which I rarely do for a DKTOS) just because it was so darn fun!

Great Job, AFW! You are so right about the downsizing! I remember stuff I used to get as a kid. Now it's half the size and twice the price! Great concept and execution...5s

Good one, AFW... Isn't it weird how food portions are getting smaller, but people keep getting fatter?

"Shrink our appetite's, too?" What's with the apostrophe? A plural noun (like "appetites") doesn't contain an apostrophe. Recommendation: proofread. If that doesn't work, study spelling and punctuation rules.
