The most important thing we've learned as far as children are concerned

Oompa Loompa:
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 a television set, or better still just don't install the idiotic thing at all. / It rots the senses in the head / It kills 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 / Regarding little Mike Teavee, we very much regret that we, regret that we / Shall simply have to wait and see / We very much regret that we / Shall simply have to wait and see / If we can get him back to size / But if we can't / It serves him right!

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
Regarding little Mike Teavee
We very much regret that we
Regret that we
Shall simply have to wait and see
Wait 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
Ew, somebody grab him.
Help me.
Help me.
Oh, thank heavens.
He's completely unharmed.
Unharmed?
What are you talking about?
Just put me back in the other way.
There is no other way.
It's television, not telephone.
There's quite a difference.
And what exactly do you propose
to do about it?
I don't know.
But young men are extremely springy.
They stretch like mad.
- Let's go put him in the taffy puller.
- Taffy puller?
Hey, that was my idea.
Boy, is he gonna be skinny.
Yeah.
Taffy puller.
I want you to take Mr. Teavee
and his...
...little boy up to
the taffy puller, okay?
Stretch him out.
On with the tour.
