    Do you ever think about
    What a lovely place the world would be
    Without all the people
    That make life so unpleasant?

    All the small, petty people
    All the ugly, annoying people
    It's hard not to think about it

    I like to think about
    What could be
    Done to these people
    Something cruel
    Something mean
    Something just
    But the meaner the better
    Goodness knows they deserve it

    Have you ever dreamed of
    Killing all the stupid people?
    Not just the unintelligent people
    But the sort that don't know anything about anything
    But seem to have opinions about everything
    They're only too ready to offer their advice about
    How to run your life
    And yet look at how they run their own lives
    For the most part they've accomplished nothing
    They've contributed nothing
    Their lives are miserable
    But they talk, talk, talk,
    At the very least their tongues should be cut out
    At the very least

    Do you ever wanna
    Kill all the people who tell lies?
    Some certainly deserve it
    Not necessarily the big liars
    Or even those who teach lies as truth
    I'm talking about people
    Who say one thing and do another
    Or who tell you they sent something express mail
    When you know they haven't

    Did you ever want to
    Kill all the slow people in the world?
    The people who are in front of you
    When they should be behind you
    A crime that the swift should be help back by the slow
    And it's criminal that nothing is going to rectify it

    And what about all the really ugly people?
    Add them to the list as well
    Some people try not to think about life's ugliness
    I've thought about it
    I've thought about it quite a lot
    Something should be done to these people
    Something to make them suffer
    The way they've made us suffer

    I say, bring back the Circus Maximus
    For starters
    Unless these weeds are dealt with
    They'll poison everything
    They are poisoning everything
    We need a gardener
    A brutal gardener
    A thorough, thoughtful gardener
    An iron gardener

    Whatever happened to Vlad the Impaler?
    Where's Genghis Kahn when you need him?
    Or Roi d'Ys?
    Ayatollah Khomeini?
    Adolf Hitler?
    Benito Mussolini?

    Come back!
    Come back!
