The Lyrics

The tale of a man (otherwise known as me) who's aware of this Beachbody Custardbath person, but hasn't actually seen him in anything.
Benedict Cu-umberbatch
Have to say I've never seen him act
Not an insult I just said
Take it lit'rally, that's what I meant
Filmography I-I've looked up
Good range of genres here, I'll say that much
Biopics, fantasy and Sherlock, wow
Pity I've only seen gif-sets for now
Can say I'm an uncu-ultured fool
Not seekin' out this Hammersmith-born dude
Not gonna argue, man, you may be right
This isn't meant as any sort of slight
I'm sure he can act real great
Wouldn't be ev'rywhere if not, but, mate
Don't have the time to watch all his films
Let alone the TV shows, that's weeks fi-i-illed
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh, oh, god, I-ee-I

Honestly, sometimes it feels like there's a big hole
Not a true pop-culture experience without this dork
I haven't see-een him in any-ythin'
That gu-uy, that gu-u-uy
Shouldn't let others say that my knowledge ain't whole
But he gets brought up so damn often, he can't be ignored
Been in lots o-of things, but I've see-een zip
That gu-uy, that gu-u-uy

That gu-u-uy

Biopics aren't my-y thing, mate
So I've not seen The Imitation Game
The Hobbit films are also out
Cause Middle-Earth I never cared about
I don't watch a whole lot of TV shows
And even when I do, it's cartoons, so
I've never gotten Sherlock/Watson feels
Although I've never done that shippin' deal
His theatre wo-ork I've skipped
Cause for that medium I give no shits
And I don't care for Dreamworks Penguins
So how can I have seen Benedi-i-ict?
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh, oh, god, I-ee-I

I might look the movies up one day when I'm bored
But I've got other things now that have my attention more
Still haven't see-een him in any-ythin'
That gu-uy, that gu-u-uy
I might watch the Jungle Book remake one day, for
It's more up my alley than Into Darkness is, for sure
But right now, I-I've seen him in no-othin'
That gu-uy, that gu-u-uy

(I-I don't) I don't care now (i-if you) if you just ha-ate him
(Cau-ause I-I) Cause I can't say (I-I ge-et) I get your ra-agin'
(No-ot heard) Not heard the sound (o-of his) of his Brit a-accent
(I-It's no-ot) It's not my place (to-o mo-ock) to mock or cla-ap it
I've plans to see Doctor Strange
Got jack to do with the lead actor, mate

A real interestin' contrast will be in store
Because I've never seen that Cucumberpatch act before
No, I've not see-een him in any-ythin' (I've not see-een him)
That gu-uy, that gu-u-uy (tha-at gu-u-uy)
Ev'ryone else will say his Yankee accent's poor
But I won't even notice because as I've said before
I've seen him a-act in jack-all, no-othin' (jack-all, no-othin')
That gu-uy, that gu-u-uy (tha-at gu-u-uy)

Benedict Cu-umberbatch
Wonder if I'll find him good or crap
Hopin' for the former one, please

I know I'm not the first to pamke the connection between Benadryl Slumberbelch and this song, but no-one's written a whole parody on this website, so hah!
