Cool Umpa Lumpa!

I need some help. I have to a speech for my public speaking class and the topic of our next speech is "In praise of...". Basically what that means is that we have to pick something, anything, and praise. One is prasing cheese; Another is praising belt buckles; And another is praising shoelaces. I chose to praise Umpa Lumpas and I am having some trouble finding the lyrics (I guess that's what they are) to the different songs they sing. If anybody can help me out finding those lyrics that would be great. I need to have them by Thursday so tomorrow would be the lastest for any help.

Thanks,
Jay

Have you tried any Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory fan websites? Or, just google the phrase there appears to be a ton of stuff out there.

Get the spelling right, will ya???

Excerpt:

From Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me

What do you get when you guzzle down sweets?
Eating as much as an elephant eats
What are you at getting terribly fat?
What do you think will come of that?

I don't like the look of it

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-da
If you're not greedy, you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have another puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-da-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me

Gum chewing's fine when it's once in a while
It stops you from smoking and brightens your smile
But it's repulsive, revolting, and wrong
Chewing and chewing all day long

The way that a cow does

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-da
Given good manners, you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have another puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-da-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me

Who do you blame when your kid is a brat?
Pampered and spoiled like a Siamese cat
Blaming the kids is a lie and a shame
You know exactly who's to blame

The mother and the father

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-da
If you're not spoiled, then you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have another puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-da-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me.......

You know that reminds of the Simpson's episode when Homer said he would only smuggle sugar into Springfield if they would get him an Oompa Loompa.

I think the re-make is due out this summer sometime.

Ironically, that episode is on right now, or at least here in CT.

Also there's an episode of Family Guy that spoofs the whole Willy Wonka- replacing chocolate with beer.. if you want to add a little humor, there's definitely plenty of it in FG. You might google for the bittorrent of that episode: "Pawtucket Patriot"

Here's the Chumba Wumba lines (spoofing the Oompa Loompas)

Joe Swanson: Hey, Pat, where's the wheelchair ramp?
Pawtucket Pat: Oh, we don't have one. I guess this is where you get off.
[Pawtucket Pat blows a whistle and the Chumba Wumbas come out]

Chumba Wumba Chorus: Chumba Wumba gobbledy goo / Life isn't fair it's sad but it's true / Chumba Wumba gobbledy gee / When your poor legs are stiff as a tree.

Chumba Wumba #1: What do you do when you're stuck in a chair?
Chumba Wumba #2: Finding it hard to go up and down stairs?
Chumba Wumba #3: What do you think of the one you call God?
Chumba Wumba Chorus: Isn't His absence slight-ly odd?

Chumba Wumba #4: Maybe He's forgotten you.
Chumba Wumba Chorus: Chumba wumba gobbledy gorse / Count yourself lucky you're not a horse / They would turn you into dog food / Or to chumba wumba gobbledy glue!

[the Chumba Wumbas push Joe out of the factory]
Joe Swanson: Joe: I'm glad I'm not taking your stupid tour! I'm a Coors man anyway. Silver bullet!

The class loved the Oompa Loompa speech. I had them laughing the whole time (even the teacher)!

Yeah, that Family Guy episode is great especially the Chumba Wumba scene.
