Real Lyrics -> Dumbest -> Capitol Steps

These are lyrics by Capitol Steps that we think are kind of dumb.

Capitol Steps', "It's Time for Killin' Barney"
The Dumbest Lyrics:
It's time that my two-year-old got some taste
And started reading 'Hamlet,' or even 'Ethan Fro-o-o-o-o-home'
[Barney imitator hums last line]
[Clunking sound; Barney imitator moans]
I'm burying the hatchet in Barney's disgusting foam!
Why They're Dumb:
Since when should two-year-olds--who are usually illiterate anyway--have any interest in the writings of Shakespeare or Edith Wharton? Barney is geared toward little kids; when I was a kid I liked tv animal characters like Webster Webfoot, Kukla and Ollie, and Lamb Chop--not to mention countless cartoon characters. And, as I matured, I still read John Steinbeck, Ralph Ellison, Conan Doyle--and Shakespeare--anyway. The Steps are usually on target but with this song they were far from it.
