"Mike Teavee" as written by Danny Elfman and Roald Dahl....
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
(Never, never let them, never, never let them)

(Never, never let them, never, never let them)
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 in fairyland
(In Fairyland, in Fairyland)
His brain becomes as soft as cheese
His thinking powers rust and freeze
He cannot think he only sees
(He only sees, 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
