Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

If Two Have Four

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1968 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1996.

If two have four and if four have four,
We'll soon be crowded from shore to shore,
But if two have one and some have none,
There'll be room enough for everyone.
Here's a pill, here's a ring,
There are ways of managing everything,
For the sake of the kids who will take our place,
We've got to cut back on the teeming human race.
