The Lyrics

How indeed?
Ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh

An inexplicable failure
I'm very confused
Real costly failure, a PR failure too
I thought the kids would be quite sated
By my new plaything
Radiation power is, so I was told, a big thing

How'd this fail to sell?
How'd this fail to sell?
How'd this fail to sell?
Ah

No hurt like broke hurt
Should've had it friggin' made
Just three mutations
Not that bad, mate
Don't be lame

[mutated test player garbles in agony]

How'd this fail to sell?
How'd this fail to sell?
How'd this fail to sell?
Ah
How'd this fail to sell?
How'd this fail to sell?
How'd this fail to sell?
Ah

Sales are down cause of my screw-up
This is nuts, sales have gone way down
Thought kids loved green things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved sharp things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved hard things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved gross things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved weird things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved cheap things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved freak things
How'd this fail to sell? Thought kids loved dead things
How'd this fail to sell?

Oh. Because you're a complete twat. Gotcha.
