    Quotes about villain songs 
"When zhe bad guy is that happy it always, always means...bad guy song!"

"I'll rule the world!... uh, that is, after I sing my song!"
—Evil Dr. Carver, The Proud Family Movie

Upstage, lads! This is my only number!
Long John Silver (as played by Tim Curry), Muppet Treasure Island

Anderson: I hope (The Klan) are better at lynchings than they are at lyrics.
Mississippi Burning, after singing a Klan song.

"In my dream, Little King John sure was frightening, and infuriating. But I have to admit, he was full of catchy music."
Ratboy Genius, Ratboy Genius Dreams Minecraft

"I so love a musical number."

"Villains tend to sing negative messages because they don't know any better, that's why they're villains. If they sang good songs, there wouldn't be villains. So, what we learned... is that it's okay to have a negative message in a film, as long as you don't put it in a really catchy song."
Phil Vischer, in this featurette on the DVD for Veggietales: Rack, Shack, and Benny

    Anime and Manga 
At my invitation, you've come to compete
For the honor of suffering the final defeat
Isn't it grand what I've managed to do
In a winner take all duel for all time
Let's play the game!
I'm sure you all know how
Face up, face down,
Attack or defend
Face up, face down
This battle's to the end
Face up, face down
Stay on guard
Face up, face down
Play your strongest card

    Comic Books 
When the world is full of care
And every headline screams despair,
When all is rape, starvation, war and life is vile
Then there’s a certain thing I do
Which I shall pass along to you,
That’s always guaranteed to make me smile:
I go loo-oo-oony as a light-bulb battered bug!
Simply loo-oo-oony, sometimes foam and chew the rug!
Mister, life is swell
In a padded cell,
It’ll chase those blues away:
You can trade your gloom
For a rubber room
And injections twice a day!
Just go loo-oo-oony like an acid casualty,
Or a moo-oo-oonie, or a preacher on T.V.
When the human race
Wears an anxious face,
When the bomb hangs overhead,
When your kid turns blue,
It won’t worry you,
You can smile and nod instead.
When you’re loo-oo-oony, then you just don’t give a fig.
Man’s so pu-uu-uny, and the universe so big!
If you hurt inside,
Get certified,
And if life should treat you bad.
Don't get ee-ee-ven,

    Film — Animated 
In the dark of the night I was tossing and turning
And the nightmare I had was as bad as can be
It scared me out of my wits
A corpse falling to bits
Then I opened my eyes and the nightmare was me!

I was once the most mystical man in all Russia
When the royals betrayed me, they made a mistake!
My curse made each of them pay
But one little girl got away
Little Anya, beware, Rasputin's awake!

In the dark of the night, evil will find her
In the dark of the night, just before dawn
Revenge will be sweet when the curse is complete
In the dark of the night, she'll be gone!!!

You know what they say
Each dog has his day
But I... must have my night!
— The Secretary of Night, in a cut song from Mumfie's Quest.

As all who know me might suppose, I've hatched a tasty plot!
A licorice that grows and grows until there's more than a lot!
I'll place it in the Circle Sweet and watch it quickly rise,
And soon my chewy sticky goo'll reach into the skies!
Licorice here, licorice there, far as you can see!
The smell of licorice in the air! (Yummy, yummy yummy!)
Slickery licorice everywhere, soon they'll understand!
Life will be so great, so grand
Here in Licorice Land!

You're a star and you should know it
Yeah, you rise above the rest

Don't ever count on anybody else,
In this or any other land.

Open up your eyes,
See the world from where I stand.
Me, among the mighty,
You, caged at my command.

Open up your eyes,
And behold the faded light.
It's time to grow up and get wise,
Come now, little one, open up your eyes.

Now listen up
There are crooks in this here West
Who have claimed to be the best,
And think they wrote the book on how to rustle
Well, as good as they may be,
Not a one's as good as me,
An' I barely have to move a single muscle
They call me mean, boys
Depraved and nasty too
And they ain't seen, boys,
The cruelest thing I do

You see, I yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle
The sweetest way of rustlin' yet devised
'Cause when I yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle
Why, looky how them cows git hypnotized

Still he drives them dogies well,
Which ain't easy when your chaps are labeled XXXXL

Yes, if yer lookin' from a bovine point of view,
I sure can yodel-adle-eedle-idle
Yodel-adle-eedle-idle
Yodel-adle-eedle-idle-oo

Here we go, boys
Five thousand cattle in the side pocket

Yes, I can yodel-adle-eedle-odle
A sound them cattle truly take to heart
Yeah, I can yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odle
An' smack my big ol' rump if that ain't art

He don't rope
Not a chance
He just puts 'em in a trance
He's a pioneer Pied Piper in ten-gallon underpants

Yep! I'm the real rip-roarin' deal to those who moo
Thanks to my yodel-adle-eedle-idle
Dodle-adle-eedle-idle
I got the cattle out the ol' wazoo
'Cause I can yodel-adle-eedle-idle-oo

Alameda Slim, Home on the Range

That's right, I heard the story over and over again
Gee, it's swell to finally meet her other friends
That's right, I heard the story; don't really like how it ends
Gee, it's swell to finally meet her other friends

What did she say about me, what did she say?
What did you do without me, what did you do?
Did you play games without me, what did you play?
Did you think all this time that I wouldn't find out about you?

Oh, that's right, I heard the story over and over again
Gee, it's swell to finally meet her other friends!

[...]

Who am I? WHO AM I? What are you even saying?
I'm the loser of the game you didn't know you were playing!
Let's play another game, this time I get to win!
Lives on the line! Winner takes all! Ready or not, let's begin!

Oh, that's right, I heard the story over and over again!

"When I say he was a monster,
when I set fire to his name,
It does not matter where you hear it from,
whether truth or lies,
It gets said all the same.
Whatever's on the table plays!"
The Protomen (Turbo Lover, as Dr. Wily) "The Hounds"

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

It's all about the game and how you play it,
It's all about control and if you can take it,
It's all about debt and if you can pay it,
It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.

I am the Game, you don't wanna play me,
I am Control, no way you can change me,
I am Heavy Debt, no way you can pay me,
I am the Pain and I know you can't take me.

Look over your shoulder, ready to run
Like a good little bitch from a smoking gun
I am The Game and I make the rules
So move on out or you can die like a fool.

Trying to figure out what my move's gonna be?
Come over, sucker. Why don't you ask me?
Don't you forget there's a price you can pay,
Cause I am The Game and I want to play.

You're dressin' all in black
From your front to your back
And all your evil ways
They seem to go on for days
And as a matter of fact
You got one more night before ya

Smash it up, burn it down
Tearing up the underground
You wanna live like a super villain
Back in the line up
Before your time's up
You wanna live like a super villain
Powerman 5000, Super Villain

I'm the president of showbiz, my name is Charlie
I'm a cocksucking asshole, that's what they call me
Here from my Hollywood tower I rule
I'm a lyin' motherfucker, the chainsaw's my tool
The New Morgue's a factory to grease our lies
The machine is hungry, it needs your life
Don't mind the faggots and the ruthless scum
Before we're done, son, we'll make you one
I'm the tin man! I never had a heart!
I'm the tin man! But I'll make you a star!
WASP, "Chainsaw Charlie"

There's math and there's dealers and players and killers and ME!
They say that they're winners, okay, well let's see!
You pay or you play, the rules of the trade
The math of the date, the times and the age
What you want, how you like! Aim high man, why not?
Sun Moon Stars in y'all, each and every all of y'all!
Gorillaz (Mos Def, as Sun Moon Stars), Sweepstakes

No one man should have all that power.
The clock's tickin', I just count the hours.
Stop trippin', I'm trippin' off the power.
Till then, fuck that, the world's ours.
Kanye West, Power

The time has come for the world to burn
This time you're all gonna learn
The countless slain scream out in searing pain
Their souls and their ashes are all that remain!

I am the one, Orgasmatron
The outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony
My servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant
Clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery
Of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount
Paranoia, the law
My name is called religion
Sadistic and sacred whore

I twist the truth, I rule the world
My crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies
You grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you
Your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant
And revel in your pain
And all my promises are lies
All my love is hate
I am the politician
And I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world
An army for the fight
I speak of great, heroic days
Of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood
I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny
I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces
Your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the God of War
And I will cut you down
Motörhead, "Orgasmatron"

Waiting, to put on a black shirt
Waiting, to weed out the weaklings
Waiting, to smash in their windows and kick in their doors
Waiting, for the final solution, to strengthen the strain
Waiting, follow the worms
Pink Floyd, "Waiting For The Worms"

I believe in a cruel God
who has created in in His image
and whom, in hate, I name.
From some vile seed
or base atom I am born.
I am evil because I am a man;
and I feel the primeval slime in me.
Yes! This is my testimony!
[...]
And I believe man to be the sport
of an unjust Fate,
from the germ of the cradle
to the worm of the grave.
After all this mockery comes death.
And then? And then?
Death is Nothingness.
Heaven is an old wives' tale!
Iago, Othello (Opera by Verdi)

"It will all be mine,
Power so divine
I'll tell the sun to shine
On only me!
It will all be mine,
Till the end of time
When this perfect crime
Makes history

I love to kick it up a notch
Cuz I'm evil and bad to the bone.
[takes a drag] Yeah, I'm smoking pot!
Looks like Junior is all grown up.
And I'm having a blast, blowing shit up

So call me a terrible guy!

Oh look! What clever children!
See them study, watch them learn!
How I HATE those goody-goodies!
How it makes my stomach turn!

I've got a little secret,
That'll really make 'em cry!
It's a NASTY kind of magic,
From a special, kind of guy!

And I'm going to throw my shit at you!

"Look at me, still talking when there's science to do
When I look out there it makes me glad I'm not you
I've experiments to run, there is research to be done
On the people who are
Still alive
And believe me I am
Still alive
I'm doing science and I'm
Still alive
I feel fantastic and I'm
Still alive
While you're dying I'll be
Still alive
And when you're dead I will be
Still alive
Still alive
Still alive..."

When everything you know has come and gone
(You are at your lowest, I am rising higher)
Only scars remain of who I was
(What I find in the ashes, you lose in the fire)
When there's no one left to carry on
(This is an illusion, open up your eyes and)
This pain persists, I can't resist
But that's what it takes to be Infinite!

So look around you and tell me what you really see
I never end and that's the difference in you and me
'Cause when your time is up and everything is falling down
It's only me and you, who is gonna save you now?

So look around you and tell me what you really see
You live a lie and that's the difference in you and me
I have the power, let me show you what it's all about
It's only me and you, who is gonna save you now?

They're perfect in every way
I'd love to destroy the blue one you know
He's an obstacle that always gets in my way

All my machines are made for destruction

You seem impressed with what you've shown
But I don't find it that compelling
You've sung my praise, but not your own
And well, I think that's pretty telling
But while we're on the subject of
How I'm superb and leagues above
You
Ought to know I'm number one!
I know that might be hard to swallow

This hurts you just as much as me

But when this song is sung then you and I'll know
That you're just a nobody!

R for rrrevolution, which will be televised

Sideshow Bob: [sings] I've... grown accustomed to his face,
And dreams of gouging out his eyes.
I've grown accustomed to my hate,
My plans to lacerate,
To disembowel,
To hear him howl.

The very reason that I live
Is plotting how to watch him die.

Homer: [bangs on the wall from the other room] Bart! Turn down that original cast recording and go to sleep!

Sideshow Bob: [continues singing] I know this chubby scalawag
Has made my life a living hell.
Surely, if I drank his blood,
I'd be at peace... but, well...

Bart: [removes the duct tape from his mouth and sings] You've grown accustomed to my face?

Sideshow Bob: This isn't a duet.
Bart: Sorry. [puts the tape back on his mouth]

Sideshow Bob: I've grown accustomed to your fear,
Accustomed to revenge,
Accustomed to...your...face.

Today's just so wonderful,
I feel like chuckling (ha ha ha)
I feel all fuzzy inside like a duckling;
full of tarantulas
And now that I'm here, tonight,
It's gonna get weird!
Ah-ha-ha-ha!

Look at these creatures,
Not enough features
Cats should breath fire,
Bears should sing choir!
(Choir of bears)
Very nice!
Look at this tower under my power
Look at these people,
puny and feeble!
(Ooooooo hoooo!)

Look, I'm just a triangle trying to save you
From the delusions society gave you
Gravity's a lie
And so is the sky
Trust in the all-seeing, all-knowing EYE!

Look at this money
Who's that, honey?
Look throughout history,
How could you miss me?
(Seriously, I'm all over the place)
Look at this weather,
I could do better
Mandelbrot rainbows,
Screaming tornadoes!

Look at this loser,
drinking coffee...
Now it's decaf! (Mwahahahaha!)
Look at these people,
Calling me evil,
Right back at you,
Now you're all statues!
Now everything you know has disappeared,
It's gonna get weird...

Eat away everything in the world!
It will be a neverending supper!
Now let's begin the process of cooking those poor invaders
Who've wandered into our territory
Suck and chew down all the spite and malice!
It will be a neverending nightmare!
What has been filled up, her cracked glasses
Is the dark red blood

All day
All night
I've been thinkin' why feelin' wrong feels so right
And I know
Yeah I try
To turn myself around but I know what I like
Your girl is lashed to the railroad tracks
I twirl my mustache and laugh my Evil Laugh
I stroke my cat and then I steeple my hands
You hang above my smoking vat as I reveal my plans
Now just lie still and die while I try to decide
What bad guy line applies to my diatribe

How 'bout No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!"
Or maybe "Kneel before Zod" or "Give yourself to The Dark Side"
"From Hell's heart I stab at thee"

Should I say "Riddle me this" or "Off with their heads!"?
Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated
Now while you hang there and consider your fate,
Should I say "Release the hounds!" or just say "EX-TER-MIN-ATE!"?
I have something to say
It's better to burn out than to fade away
By the way, Did I ever tell you how I got these scars?
I think the word you're looking for is "Ahhhhh!"
I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that
Impressive, but you are not a Jedi yet
