Danny Elfman – Mike Teavee lyrics

The most important thing
That we've ever learned
The most important we've learned
As far as children are concerned
Is never, never ever let them near
Your television set
Or better still, just don't install
The idiotic thing at all

Never, never let them
Never, never let them

Never, never let them
Never, never let them

It rots the senses in the head!
It keeps imagination dead!
It clogs and clutters up the mind!
It makes a child so dull and blind!
So dull and blind, so dull and blind!

He can no longer understand
A fairytale, a fairyland!
A fairyland, a fairyland!
His brain becomes as soft as cheese
His thinking powers rust and freeze
He cannot think, he only sees!
He only sees, he only sees!

Regarding little Mike Teavee
We very much regret that we

Regret that we

Shall simply have to wait and see
And see, wait and see, wait and
See, wait and see, wait and see

We very much regret that we
Shall simply have to wait and see
If we can get him back his height
But if we can't
It serves him right
