The Lyrics

I'm just tired of Charlie and the Chocolate. I just disliked the movie and how the old movie is now shoved aside.
I watched you back on the BW back in Ninety Six
Lying awake intent at tuning in at you.
If I was naughty it didn't stop them from coming through.

Oh-a ah

They took credit for your bratty kids
Rewritten Mike and gave a back story
and now I understand the meanings that I saw.
Oh-a ah

I know you have children
Oh-a ah

What did you tell them?
Burton killed the Wonka star.
Burton killed the Wonka star.

Depp came and broke our hearts.
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now I re-watch you with a plasma
We see Pure Imagination, it was so long ago
And we know how the Oompa jingles go.
Oh-a oh

You were the first movie
Oh-a oh

You were the last one

Burton killed the Wonka star.
Burton killed the Wonka star.
In my VCR and my mind, I can't rewind we've gone so far
Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh

In my VCR and my mind, I can't rewind we've gone so far,
Highmore came and broke your heart, look I'll play my DVD.

You were a Wonka star
You were a Wonka star
Burton killed the Wonka star.
Burton killed the Wonka star.
Burton killed the Wonka star.
Burton killed the Wonka star.

Burton killed the Wonka star. (You are a Wonka star.)

I totally understand what you are saying. Well done. Ignore the 111 vote, it doesn't really mean a thing. 111 voters are usually low-lifes.

Never seen the new movie, but here are some 5s. I would like the see the 111 voters actually comment(but they don't have any good reasons for why they vote like that).

I know what you mean. I really don't care for the new Willy Wonka Oompa Loompa songs. I like the old ones better.
