Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – The TV Song

The most important thing

That we’ve ever learned

The most important thing we’ve learned

As far as children are concerned

Is never, never let them near the 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, so dull

He can no longer understand

A fairy tale, 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!
