The Lyrics

This song is about the Duggars, that nutsy family on TLC with what will be 19 kids. I referred to them as Mennonites because they live like Amish people. Well, they're rednecks too. This actually features a skit between Jim Bob, Michelle, and me and my friends, and the cruel punishment we face for dissing them.
I've been down to Mennonite City
Called "Duggars House" and it's such a pity
SHIELD (Oh won't you) MY (shield my eyes) EYES
Tonitown feels like Mennonite City
Though their kids lives suck they seem so giddy
SHIELD (Oh won't you) MY (shield my eyes) EYES

Are you surprised they aren't livin on the street
That 18 child family
And I know its sounds like a crazy scheme
But did you hear them say
#19 is on its way!

Devout Christians or so they say
They only keep praying for the fortune and fame
She won't let her kids play video games
She won't even let Josh kiss his wife!
Tell that chick to get a life!

Their household feels like Mennonite City
Wanna beat the 'rents up and it won't be pretty
To the kids: Please shield your eyes
I've been down to Mennonite City
Called "Duggars House" and it's such a pity
SHIELD MY EYES

Strapped in a chair in the Duggar's prayer chamber
Though I survived I can't quite remember
Why they even want 19 kids in the first place
Why is TLC making a large family race
It feels like they're from Outer Space

I call their quarters Mennonite City
Wanna beat the 'rents up and it won't be pretty
SHIELD MY EYES
Michelle might establish Mennonite City
Called "Duggars House" and it's such a pity
Oh won't you please shield my eyes

--spoken during Slash's solo--
Michelle: Are you that little girl who has been dissing my family and their values?
Me: (nervous) uhhh
Michelle: Say it!
Me: yes.
Michelle: And are those all your friends?(I have several friends with me)
Me and friends: Yes.
Michelle: You ungrateful dumb heathens! Burn in hell!
Jim Bob: What's the problem?
(Michelle whispers)
One of my guy friends: Why the hell is your name Jim Bob? You have 2 first names haha!
Jim Bob: GASP! God does not like that!
Michelle: To our human birdcages with y'all!
Me and my friends: OH NO!
(sounds of teenagers screaming)

Won't go away
They won't go away
Won't go away
Just go away

Trapped in their crazy turf and can't get out
To my friends: Why can't you guys get me out.
They have an idea what I'm talking 'bout
The Duggars have lost their minds ARE THEY BLIND!
We cried for help a million times

Their household feels like Mennonite City
Wanna beat the 'rents up and it won't be pretty
To the kids: Please shield your eyes
I've been down to Mennonite City
Called "Duggars House" and it's such a pity
SHIELD MY EYES

Their household feels like Mennonite City
Wanna beat the 'rents up and it won't be pretty
To the kids: Please shield your eyes
I've been down to Mennonite City
Called "Duggars House" and it's such a pity
SHIELD MY EYES

EYES

(My friends and I all sing this part in unison)

We want to go
Where did they go?
Oh, won't you please take me home

Where can the be?
Won't set us free
Oh, won't you please take me home

Get me out of this Mennonite City
Where the Duggars live and their lives are pities
Oh won't you please bust us out

Get me out of this Mennonite City
Where the Duggars live and their lives are pities
Oh won't you please bust us out

Let's take em down
Oh yeah
And beat em up
Oh, won't you please bust us out

Why can't they see
How good our lives can be
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Boy, I'm gonna get mean
Oh, oh bust me out

Get me out of this Mennonite City
Where the Duggars live and their lives are pities
Oh won't you please bust us out

We want to go
Let's never lose hope
Oh, won't you please take us hooooooome
Help us!
Please?
