The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2014 self-challenge. Never stray from the given instructions, otherwise this guy will pop up and yell at you. In song. Because.
Oh-oh-ah-oh-ah-ah-ah-ah, oh, oh-oh-oh

Have to a-ask you-ou now to sto-op this
Cause it fue-uels ra-age within me
I don't ca-are if you're real bu-usy
You mu-ust do-o things pro-operly
Mi-ight thi-ink that you're cle-eve-er
But I-I must disagree
I'm so-o tempted to hi-it you
Be-ecau-ause my wo-ords, you won't heed
See these instructions, mate? Good reason that I gave
The-em to you, you should see-ee
I knew that you-ou would say that I'm peda-antic, mate
Asshole, listen to me-e-e-e

If you-ou don't reali-ise you've mistaken
Your foo-oolish, misguide-ed application
O-Of the ru-ules for a goo-ood plan, mi-ight hate me
Sti-ill have to tell you how to-o do it prope-erly-y-y
W-W-Won't, wo-on't, won't, won't do it properly-y?
B-B-Bro, bro-o, bro, bro, do it properly-y
G-G-Go, go-o, go, go do it properly-y

Some ste-eps, you can't be ski-ippin'
If i-it's left incomplete
You-ou'll see it colla-apsi-in'
In hu-uge pi-iles a-at your fee-ee-eet
Least se-even times, I've to-old you
Wi-ith specifi-ici-ity-y-y-y-y
You ca-an't respond "whate-eve-e-er"
To do-oi-in' things pro-operly-y-y
Serious bus'ness, mate, what you will undertake (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Throu-ough which, you can't just bree-eeze
I know I should explain why your plan is insane (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Bu-ut there's no time, you see-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee, yeah

You cou-ould blow the whole wo-orld up, quite painful
So i-it's obvious why-y I'm disdainful
I-I can ge-et why my to-one makes you-ou hate me
Bu-ut it's important that you-ou do this prope-erly-y-y
W-W-Won't, wo-on't, won't, won't do it properly-y?
B-B-Bro, bro-o, bro, bro, do it properly-y
G-G-Go, go-o, go, go do it properly-y
Li-isten, you moron, you mu-ust do it properly-y-y, yeah-eah

Plea-ea-ease, ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh
Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please
Yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-eah, yeah, oh, yeah-eah

I'm i-insane? Come on, ma-an, I'm not crazy
I fu-ull know that you're ju-ust makin' gravy
Bu-ut if o-one thing goes wro-ong, you ca-an't blame me
You-ou can't ignore that things mu-ust be done prope-erly-y-y
W-W-Won't, wo-on't, won't, won't do it properly-y-y-y (ooh-ooh-ooh-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee)?
B-B-Bro, bro-o, bro, bro, do it properly-y-y (ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee)
G-G-Go, go-o, go (go-o-o), go do it properly-y
Li-isten, you dumbass, you mu-ust do it properly-y-y

Clearly the gravy people have some variety of techno-jo. Cause if you have techno-joy, you get the instructions, you unwrap it, and throw the instructions out the window!
