The Lyrics

This is my 4th Wonka parody of a song from Ammonia Avenue. This is when the Oompa Loompas sing about Augustus, being sucked up in the tube after ending up in the chocolate river.
Augustus the fat German boy
Eats too much all the time and every single day
He's gonna get sucked into
The fudge room and he will be stuck there all day

What should we do about Augustus,
And the sweets he eats and pounds he gains?
He is just like a hippopotamus
He should go on a diet to stop the weight gain

All the kids have to say goodbye
To Augustus, who's gonna miss out on this day
He'll wish he never ate so bad or made himself fat
He'll be locked-up today

He's ruined the chocolate river
He drove us and Willy Wonka insane
He is gonna get so fatter
If he does not diet, to prevent weight gain

Poor Augustus boy
Looks so chubby and round
Poor Augustus boy
Has been eatin' all around

All the kids will miss that Augustus
He's gonna miss out and it's such a pain
To see him in the tube, that's dangerous
All his overeating habits are insane

Poor Augustus boy
Weighs two-hundred pounds
Poor Augustus boy
Has been eatin' off the ground

(Poor Augustus boy)
Poor Augustus boy
Looks so chubby and round
(Looks so chubby and round)
Poor Augustus boy
Has been eatin' all around

This was pure imagination

While Augustus had been drinking all the chocolate from the river, he had grown to 555 inches around the waist! Perfect OS for the Oompas to sing about Augustus!
