Veggietale Lyrics: The Chocolate Factory

One of my all-time favorite songs from Veggie-Tales. These are the original lyrics, which I re-wrote today, because the new boss likes good morning songs.

Good morning, George, how are you?
I hope you’re feeling fine
I’d love to stay and talk but it’s almost 8 o’clock,
And I haven’t got the time!

Because we work real hard at the chocolate factory
We start at eight and we don’t get lunch till three.
I gotta drive a truck
To make a buck
So I can send it home to my family

Mr. Lunt: Well, now you are in trouble
Your time card is a wreck
It’s almost two past eight, I’ll tell Nezzer that you’re late
And he’ll take it from your check

Mr. Lunt: Oh yes, we work real hard at the chocolate factory
Some Pea: Excuse me, Mr. Lunt, but I’ve got an injury.
Mr. Lunt: Now get back on the line
You’ll be just fine
With all this work to do we’ve got no time for sympathy

Rack: We used to be so happy
Benny: We used to laugh and run
Shack: Now there’s no time to play
‘Cuz we gotta work all day
And it isn’t very fun

Shadrack (Bob): I’m Rack!
Meshach (Junior): I’m Shack!
Abednego (Larry): I’m Benny!
All three: We work here in the plant
We’d like to take a break
For goodness’ sake
But Mr. Nezzer says

Mr. Lunt: You can’t! Ha ha!

All workers: We all need a vacation
Our schedule is severe
We’re getting very tired but stopping gets us fired
So we’ll have to stay right here

Because we work real hard at the chocolate factory
We start at eight, and we don’t get lunch till three
We work the whole week through
To make a buck or two
So we can send them home to our families

Someday they’ll come and join us
We’ll live in harmony
We hope the day is near, until then you’ll find us here
At the Nezzer chocolate factory!
