Lyrics

Bolt-lock your doors, alarm your cars
And still we move in closer every day
Top of the list is your smiling kids
But we'll be smiling, too, so that's OK

Oh, and by the way thank you
Because you're giving, giving, giving
And we're receiving -no, no - we're taking
Keeping the population down

Your taxes paid, but police waylaid
And we knows when the school bus comes and goes
We're on your street, but you don't see us
Or, if you do you smile and say "Hello"

BUT DON'T UNDERESTIMATE US
When you are giving, giving, giving
And we're receiving - no, no - we're taking
Just keeping the population down

You're giving, giving, giving
Well, it's your own fault for reproducing
We're just keeping the population down
