Worldbasement

"The Man Who Built the World in His Basement" is sung by Stan in "The Shrink" as he explores his model world from the perspective on a miniature figure after shrinking himself with a CIA shrink ray. The song is set to the melody of the 19th century English parlor tune, "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo".[1]

Lyrics[]

As he walks beneath the lamplight sun with a toothpick as a cane

You can hear the girls exclaim

[high-pitched voice] Is that man insane?

No! He'll live a lie, but never die

And that's a truth you can't deny

He's the man who built the world in his basement
