[Part 1 of "Books are Violent"]
[Verse 1: Gumball, Colin & Darwin]
Everybody read a book, wreak havoc across the nation
Come on just have a look, there's such violent inspiration
"Lord of the Flies" is a book each parent cherishes!
The feral kids survive, but the one with glasses perishes!
If you want more blood and guts give Shakespeare's plays a try
In "Titus Andronicus," a mother gets her son served up in a pie
You did this to me mother!
[Verse 2: Felicity, Banana Joe & Penny]
Legends, myths and fairy tales
Will make their readers shriek and wail
"Red Riding Hood" is pretty bizarre
Where a wolf dresses up as a girl's grandma
[Bridge: Alan & Gumball]
Alan: I've read Greek myths just like you sir
When they get beheaded like Medusa
And I read "Tortoise and the Hare,"
A tale of torture and despair!
[Skit: Gumball & Darwin]
You haven't read that one, have you?
[Verse 3: Tobias]
If you read di*ken's "Oliver Twist," you'd shut the library door and lock it!
It's all about these homeless kids who learn how to "pickpocket"!
[Interlude: Felicity & Gumball]
Okay, I get it, that's enough! Fiction should be banned!
But history books are just as bad!
Perhaps a rap will help you understand!
(Juke, hit it.)
[Part 2 (Rap Part) of "Books are Violent"]
[Verse 1: Gumball with Penny]
It's just words, words, words
Cover to cover
Bound with a spine, word to your mother
But books are the same, every story to video games
They're just as gory
Romeo, oh Romeo
Romeo is your homie-o
[Bridge: Gumball with Penny, All]
To be or not to be, that's the question for a G
"Huck Finn's Adventures" by Mark Twain.
All these books are driving me insane.
So who should really get the blame
Are books as bad as video games?
