The Lyrics

Pundits lead the new cults of society. NOTE: Though "emulate" has three syllables and Mercury's corresponding line "give love" has two, I've opted to go with what he actually sings which is "give a love."
Dumb da da dumb
Dumb da da dumb
Dumb bum bum bum da dumb

Lemmings
Lashing out at you
Asking less from me
What's knowledge for?

Happy lemmings
We love the pundit's sound
Splits a country in two
Puts panic on streets

Dumb da da dee
Dumb da da dee
Dee dumb day
We dumb down
That's OK.

There's no error believing
What the pundits will shout
Parrot insane facts
Screaming "We've no doubt."
Feed an ego - an imply-er
Simple minded peeps - voting both feet

May bay be dumb dumb
Ya ya ya uh huh
OK

Facts all around - checking our brains at the door
We're not engaged, and take no pains to explore

He do we do
She do da dumb
Dumb we do
We dat

People as sheep - we da deed dumb
People asleep- we da deed dumb deed dumb deed dumb

There's a problem of knowing
What the truth is about
Fleshing the facts, see,
Tends to give us gout.
It's our honor - gets us higher high high
Leisure for people - keeps 'em off streets

Lured away from the balm of a wise man
In our defense, knowledge don't work
The searching is too tough
And we get tired and worn.

Why? Why? Why?
Tough! Tough! Tough! Tough! Tough!

Insanity grasped, there's no risk that we're taking
Let's emulate a left field dance
Or let's emulate a right field dance
Let's say we emulate emulate emulate emulate emulate
Emulate emulate emulate emulate emulate

'Cause thought's such an old fashioned term
And thought dares you to think and
The reason in our head and our heart
That thought dares me to change the ways of
Thinking for myself
Why take a thought chance?
Why take a thought chance?
Piss on the rest
Happy lemmings
Happy lemmings
Lemmings
