The Lyrics

This is my 6th Wonka parody of a song from "Ammonia Avenue." The Oompa Loompas sing this parody about Veruca after she gets thrown into the garbage by a bunch of squirrels.
There's this girl, who's always acting very selfish
Asking for everything
Her name is Veruca Salt, who's British
Now, she's getting nothing
Because she's number zero,
She might wind up like a whore
When her daddy answers "no,"
She begs him even a few times more
Veruca's a bad girl, she never says "please"
She pissed off the squirrels, now she's rotten cheese

She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She's been bad to her dad
She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She made her dad look bad

Veruca Salt thinks her dad's made of money
She's been wasting his time
She's been asking for another pony
Now, she is worthless slime
Veruca Salt is thrown in
The smelly garbage dump
She's stuck in this dirty bin
She treats her daddy just like Trump
She's smelling like a fish---and a rotten steak
Choosing to be selfish---is not a piece of cake

She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She screams, "I want it now!"
She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She's smelling like a sow

That girl has no manners, she never says "thanks"
She begs for some dollars, from too many banks

She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She's rude and horrible
She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She's facing big trouble

She's a stupid spoiled daughter
She'll be kicked out today
She's a stupid spoiled daughter
There's hell for her to pay

Sounds like some Paris Hilton girl!

Havent; heard the song in ages, but I presume you matched it well to the pacing. Very good chorus changes as well.

You sort of made a pun on Veruca being a "spoiled daughter"! Because when food gets spoiled, you just throw it in the garbage. And that is what Veruca is: spoiled. I have to agree with you that this does sounds like a Paris Hilton girl. Allow me to spoil you 3 sets of 5's!
