"Think About It" as written by Bret Mckenzie and Jemaine Clement....
There's children on the streets using guns and knives
They're taking drugs and each other's lives
Killing each other with knives and forks
And 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

A man is lying on the street
Some punk's chopped off his head
And I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead
Turns out he's dead

And that's why I'm singing
What, what is wrong with the world today?
What's wrong with the world today?
What, what is wrong with the world today?
You gotta think about it, think, think about it

Good cops been framed, put into a can
All the money that we're making
It's going to the man

What man? Which man? Whose 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 slaves kids
What are your overheads?

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

And he said, "Can somebody
Get the knife and fork out of my leg, please"
"Can somebody please remove
These cutleries from my knees"

And then we break it down
Acappella jams
Breaking it down, let me break it down
Jamin' out, just jamin' out, yeah, yeah

    General CommentThere's children on the street using guns and knives,
    They're taking drugs and each other's lives.
    Killing each other with knives and forks,
    And calling each other names like dork.

    There's people on the street,
    Get diseases from monkeys.
    Yeah that's what I said
    They get 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

    A man is lying on the street,
    Some punk's chopped off his head.
    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead...
    Turns out he's dead.

    And that's why I'm singing
    What, what is wrong with the world today?
    What's wrong with the world today? *mumbles*
    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.
    And all the money that we're making,
    It's going to the man.

    What man? which man? Whose the man?
    When's a man a man? What makes a man a man?
    Am I a man? yes technically I am

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

    And he said "Ah Ahh ahh ahhhoowwwowowoww...Can somebody
    Get the knife the fuck out of my leg please?...
    Can somebody please remove
    These cutleries from my knees?"

    And then we break it down
    Yeah, ohhh oohhh
    It's the Acappella jams
    ooohh wooo wooo wooo wooo woo woo wooo
    Ooooooohhh, yeah yeah
    *epic jamming*
    Oooohh, breaking it down let me break it down
    Jamin' out, just jamin' out! yeah yeah, hohoohoho, woooo!
