Chumbawamba – Dumbing Down lyrics

Are you happy here in theme park UK/USA?
And do you sometimes wish that your life was plug and play?
And are the words to this song concise enough to follow?
Is your smart food simple enough to swallow?
We're dumbing down, dumb-de-dumb-dumb
Dumbing down, dumb-de-dumb-dumb
Dumb-de-dumb-dumb-dumb, dumb-de-dumb-dumb-dumb
Dumb-de-dumb-dumb-dumb, dumb-de-dumb-dumb-dumb
Are we only eating worms from a can just because we can?
And is Disneyland all we understand?
Will our history be written out in headlines?
Diana dolls, and miracles, and landmines?
We're dumbing down, dumb-de-dumb-dumb
Dumbing down, dumb-de-dumb-dumb
C'mon up here, second floor, second floor, right here, right here
I get knocked down and don't get up again, yo, wamba-silly-assed-bitch
C'mon man, we can talk about this
Ah, c'mon, I'm a girl, and I can still kick your ass
If there's nothing after death than why are we living anyway?
What's the point of seventy years? Absolutely pointless...
It's me trousers!
That's it
