Thneedville - Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
Now with lyrics! ;)
My favorite song in the movie, though it has the worst message. Just… just listen to it. It is the opening number of the entire thing and it’s awesome.
I spent twenty minutes and wrote out the lyrics. Use my ask box for any corrections, please.
In Thneedville, it’s a brand new dawn, with brand new cars and houses and lawns
here in Got-All-That-We-Needville.
In Thneedville, we manufacture our trees.
Each one is made in factories.
(And uses 96 batteries!)
In Thneedville, the air is not so clean.
So we buy it fresh (it comes out this machine!)
In Thneedville, we don’t want to know
where the smog and trash and chemicals go.
(I just went swimming and now I glow!)
In Thneedville we have fun year-round;
we surf and snowboard right in town.
We thank the Lord for all we’ve got
Including this brand new parking lot! (Parking lot!)
[Needs clarification] Aloysius O’Hare:
the man who found a way to sell air.
(And became a zillionaire.)
Everyone ‘round here works for me.
I sell them something they can get for free.
We live in perfect harmony!
(In Thneedville! In Thneedville!)
In Thneedville, we love living this way!
It’s perfect! And that’s how it will stay…
Here in Love-The-Life-We-Leadville,
We’re happy being in…
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Just saw The Lorax tonight, and it was PERFECT.
Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!
The movie was AMAZING. And the music… I must have that soundtrack.
