"[Blank] It" song lyrics?

A friend's husband is undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer; his tumor was too large to remove completely so the chemo goal right now is to shrink it so that additional surgery may be possible in the future. His wife has set up a Facebook support group ("Team FirstName") with the ongoing theme of "shrink that bastard." She posts whenever he's going into treatment so the group members can send supportive vibes.
With the last treatment, everyone sent jokes (and I thank Metafilter
for some of my contributions). This time a couple people have been playing with song lyrics. So far "Whip It," "Push It" and "Beat It" have been transformed into "Shrink It." ("Whip It" was by far superior.) What else is there? Whole songs are good but even isolated lines (see headline) can work.
(Probably shouldn't be too obscure--I just know that there are things I'm missing that might be good.)
