Good morning, Worm, your Honor
The Crown will plainly show
The prisoner who now stands before you
Was caught red-handed showing feelings

Showing feelings of an almost human nature
This will not do
Call the schoolmaster

I always said he'd come to no good
In the end, your Honor
If they'd let me have my way
I could have flayed him into shape

But my hands were tied
The bleeding hearts and artists
Let him get away with murder
Let me hammer him today

Crazy toys in the attic
I am crazy truly gone fishing
They must have taken my marbles away
Crazy toys in the attic, he is crazy

Call the defendant's wife
You little shit, you're in it now
I hope they throw away the key
You should've talked to me more often than you did

But, no, you had to go your own way
Have you broken any homes up lately?
Just five minutes, Worm, your Honor
Him and me alone

Babe, come to Mother, baby
Let me hold you in my arms
M'Lord, I never wanted him to get in any trouble
Why'd he ever have to leave me?
Worm, your Honor, let me take him home

Crazy, over the rainbow
I am crazy bars in the window
There must have been a door
There in the wall when I came in
Crazy over the rainbow, he is crazy

The evidence before the court is incontrovertible
There's no need for the jury to retire
In all the years of judging I have never heard before
Of someone more deserving the full penalty of law

The way you made 'em suffer
Your exquisite wife and mother
Fills me with the urge to defecate

Since, my friend, you have revealed your deepest fear
I sentence you to be exposed before your peers
Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall

Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall

Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall

Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
Tear down the wall, tear down the wall
