"Books Are Violent" is a song from "The Blame." It is sung by Gumball and a few other pupils of Elmore Junior High.


First part

Gumball: Everybody read a book
Wreak havoc across the nation
Come on, just have a look
There's such violent inspiration

Colin: Lord of the Flies
Is a book each parent cherishes
The feral kids survive
But the one with glasses perishes

Darwin: If you want more blood and guts,
Give Shakespeare's plays a try
In Titus Andronicus,
A mother gets her son served up in a pie

Billy: [Spoken] You did this to me, mother!
[Felicity screams]
Banana Joe: Legends, myths and fairy tales
Will make their readers shriek and wail

Penny: "Red Riding Hood" is pretty bizarre
Where a wolf dresses up as a girl's grandma
[Patrick and Judith scream]
Alan​​​​: I've read Greek myths just like you, sir
When they get beheaded like Medusa

Gumball: And I read "Tortoise and the Hare,"
A tale of torture and despair! Fight!

Darwin: You haven't read that one, have you?
Gumball: Uh, no...

Tobias​​​​: If you read Dickens' Oliver Twist,
You'd shut the library door and lock it!
It's all about these homeless kids
Who learn how to pickpocket!

Felicity: Okay, I get it, that's enough
Fiction should be banned!
Gumball: But history books are just as bad
Perhaps a rap will help you understand! [Spoken] Juke, hit it.

Rap part

Gumball: [Rapping] It's just words, words, words, cover to cover
Bound with a spine, word to your mother
But books are the same, every story
Gumball, Penny, Darwin, Carrie, and Carmen: Video games!
Gumball: ...they're just as gory

Gumball and Penny: Oh, Romeo
Gumball: Romeo is your homie-o

To be or not to be
Gumball, Colin, and Felix: That's the question for a G
Huck Finn's Adventures by Mark Twain
All these books are driving me insane

All: So who should really get the blame?
Gumball: Are books as bad as...
All: Video games?
