lyrics

When I was younger, I watched a lot of Disney films.
My dad would tell me who the good guys and the bad guys were.

He said the good guy's the one with the girl, he's often smiling,
And the bad guy's the one with the limp, he's also smiling.
It's a totally different smile, full of schadenfreude, envy and bile.
I ate my apple cut into quarters and the bad guy went hahahaha.

When I got older, I learnt a lot of history.
The teacher told me who the good guys and the bad guys were.

He said the good guy's the one with the gun, he wants his freedom,
And the bad guy's the one with the gun, he wants your freedom.
It's a totally different gun; one's for valour and virtue and one's for money.
I ate my apple whole and the capitalist went hahahaha.

Yesterday morning, I started reading newspapers.
The headlines told me who the good guys and the bad guys were.

They said the bad guy's the one on the right, he's really selfish,
And the bad guy's the one on the left, he's kinda racist,
And the bad guy's Gandhi, he slept with loads of women,
And the bad guy's Mother Teresa, she's a killer,
And the bad guy's Dickens, a raging anti-Semite,
And the bad guy's Roald Dahl, a raging anti-Semite,
And the bad guy's Disney, a raging anti-Semite,
And the-

We're all good guys, we're all bad guys, we're all good guys, we're all bad guys...
I ate my apple cut into quarters cos it made me feel better.

A little while later, someone texted me a funny thing, I read it and went hahahaha.
