Jenny Slate - Thneedville (Original Demo) lyrics

Everyone:
In Thneedville
It's a brand new day
Can't see the sun
But we like it that way
Here in get more than we need-ville

In Thneedville
You're never alone
'Cause you've always got the stuff that you own.

Woman:
I just got my baby a phone

In Thneedville!
Where the smog is real
And all the trees are made of plastic and steel
Here in growing like a weed-ville

In Thneedville
Where the buildings all grow
(Where the building all grow)
And the streetlights sprout
And the chemicals flow

Little Boy:
I just went swimming, and now I glow!

Everyone:
Just one place has stayed the same
The hill that bears our founder's name
A tradition we maintain
Soon to become a pizza chain!
Pizza chain! Pizza chain!

Ooh look! It's Aloysius O'Hare
(Aloysius O'Hare)
The man who bottled-up fresh air
And became a zillionaire

Aloysius O'Hare:
Everyone 'round here works for me
I sell them something they should get for free
We live in perfect harmony

Everyone:
In Thneedville! In Thneedville!
Hip-hooray! Hip-Hooray! Hip-hiphooray!

Ted:
All I've ever wanted is a Whozit
I would never flaunt it
Oh how'd I use it

Everybody has one
Like Jared and Julie and Jim
And Even Ronald Schlook has one
And nobody's lamer than him

And I would play with it all day
(Play with it all day)
And never ever lose it
(Never ever lose it)
All I've ever wanted is a Whozit

Except for the time that I wanted a scooter,
A cellphone, a trombone, a laptop computer
A sports car, an SUV, robot that looks like me,
A broad sword, a surfboard, a gas-powered sled,
A little pet monkey that danced on my head,
But this, this is totally different
Cause all I've ever wanted in my life is the stuff that I don't have

Everyone:
In Thneedville! It's a brand new day!

Ted:
All I ever wanted is the stuff that I don't have

Everyone:
Can't see the sun, but we like it that way
Here in get more than we need-ville

Ted:
Want it terribly!

Everyone:
In Thneedville!

Ted:
Want it horribly!

Everyone:
You're never alone.

Ted:
All I ever wanted is the stuff that I don't have

Everyone:
'Cause you've always got the stuff that you own.

Ted:
Where is the stuff that I haven't had?

Everyone:
Here in spend until you bleed-ville
Growing like a weed-ville
Please don't mention greed-ville
We're happy here in... Thneedville!
