Augustus Gloop

This song is by Danny Elfman and appears on the movie soundtrack Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005).

Augustus Gloop, Augustus Gloop
The great big greedy nincompoop
Augustus Gloop, so big and vile
So greedy, foul, and infantile

"Come on!" we cried, "The time is ripe"
"To send him shooting up the pipe!"
But don't, dear children, be alarmed
Augustus Gloop will not be harmed
Augustus Gloop will not be harmed

Although, of course, we must admit
He will be altered quite a bit
Slowly, wheels go round and round
And cogs begin to grind and pound

We'll boil him for a minute more
Until we're absolutely sure
Then out he comes, by God, by grace
A miracle has taken place
A miracle has taken place

This greedy brute, this louse's ear
Is loved by people everywhere
For who could hate or bear a grudge
Against a luscious bit of fudge?
