What is Wrong With the World Today?

The Flight of the Concords (HBO) ask this musical question:


Lyrics:

There's children on the street using guns and knives
Taking drugs and each other's lives
Killing each other with knives and forks
Calling each other names like 'dork'

There's people on the street getting diseases from monkeys
Yeah, that's what I said, they're getting diseases from monkeys
Now there's junkies with monkey disease
Who's touching these monkeys, please
Leave these poor sick monkeys alone
They've got problems enough as it is.

Man's lying on the street
Some punk's chopped off his head
I'm the only one who stops
To see if he's dead

Mmm...
Turns out he's dead.
And that's why I'm singing

What...what is wrong with the world today?
What is wrong with the world today?
naa naa naanee nah

What...what is wrong with the world today?
You gotta think about it
Think think about it.

Good cops been framed and put into a can.
All the money that we're making is going to the man.
What man?
Which man?
Who's the man?
When's a man a man?
What makes a man a man?
Am I a man?
Yes. Technically I am.

They're turning kids into slaves just to make cheaper sneakers.
But what's the real cost?
'Cause the sneakers don't seem that much cheaper.

Why are we still paying so much for sneakers
When you got them made by little slave kids
What are your overheads?

Well, at the end of your life, you're lucky if you die,
Sometimes I wonder why we even try.
I saw a man lying on the street half dead
With knives and forks sticking out of his leg.
And he said,

"Ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow
Can somebody get that knife and fork out of my leg, please?
Can somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees?"

And then we break it down.
This is where we break it down
Ooh

This is where we break it down
Aah

This is where we do the whoa-o-o-o
Break it down

This is where we build it up now
We build it up now
We build it up now
We build it up now
We build it up now
Build it up
And then we stop

DUNNER:

Lee Ward:

Looks like one of the Obamatrons has faulty wiring, and has not only lost his sense of direction, but seems to have lost certain motor and/or cognitive abilities as well.

Steve? Larkin? One of your flock has found himself spamming the wrong comment thread.... bring a leash, I see a bit of foam on his chin.
