Gorillaz and the boss Dogg
Planet of the apes

The revolution will be televised
And the pollution from the ocean
Now with devotion
Push peace and keep it in motion

Kids, gather around
Yeah, I need your focus
I know it seems like the world is so hopeless

It's like wonderland

Now fascinate me
Picture and animate me
'Cause I'm rollin'
Deep holein'
Click clacking
Full packing
Mo' stacking
Acting a fool when I teach
Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach
Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach

Mirror mirror on the wall
Boss Dawg
Give it to 'em
Get involved
Turn it up
Speed it up
Slow it up
Underground where the under us undercut
Shipped up
Shipped out
Swimmin' with the sharks
Put my gills up
Turn the wheels up
Real tough
Drinkin' lemonade in the shade
Getting blade with a gang of prilgrims

Yeah, just like that
Belly floppin' lockin' while I'm rockin' in the bubble bath
And I'm just like math
Fozo's added up that get you more cash
So quick, so fast
All the kids say they love it when I make 'em laugh

Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach
