Lyrics[]

Faginsniff:
In this sketch, one thing counts
Musical numbers, large amounts!
This slop you see don't come for free
You'll have to sing a song for your gruel, boy!
Have to sing a song for your gruel
Children:
Bowls like these don't grow on trees
Have to sing a song for your gruel!
Wakkiver:
Singing? Ah that's easy! Why we've been doing that since 150 years from now!
Dot:
Hey Mister, can we join too? We get higher residuals for songs.
Faginsniff:
Uh huh...
Dr Scratchnsniff:
If I should use their act
To pick pockets as they distract
Huge returns for us to earn!
Yes, you can sing a song for your gruel, kids
You all can sing a song for your gruel
Children:
As they mislead, we'll do the deed
You all can sing a song for your gruel!
