Once-ler:

At first I didn’t realize

I needed all this stuff,

I had a little cottage,

And that cottage was enough

A place where I could sit and knit,

A place where I could sell my Thneeds,

But now I’ve had a little time

To re-assess my needs

And I need a bigger office,

I need a bigger chair.

A bigger desk, a bigger staff,

A bigger hat to wear

Because I’m biggering,

I’m biggering and biggering,

And biggering is triggering

More biggering

Lorax:

Hey, listen up, meathead.

I’m going to say this once,and I’m not gonna repeat it.

Greed…ya see, it’s like a little pet, alright?

And the more and more and more that you go and feed it,

The more hungry it’ll get!

But…you know, you really can’t blame greed

No, that’s stupid.

You see, it’s gotta worm inside.

Oh yeah, that’s right.

It’s one that always needs to feed,

And it is never satisfied.

You get it?

But the more you try to find it,

The more it likes to hide.

Now listen—that is NASTY little worm.

And I like to call it “pride.”

See, now that’s why you’re biggering!

Listen here, idiot!

I’m sick of all your biggering!

But that biggering’s just triggering more biggering!

Got that? Alright!

Onceler:

There is a principle of nature,

That most every creature knows,

It’s called survival of the fittest,

And this is how it goes

The animal that wins has got to

Claw and kick and punch.

The animal that doesn’t winds up someone else’s lunch

A company’s an animal, that’s trying to survive,

It’s struggling, and fighting,

Just to keep itself alive

I must keep biggering,

I’m figgering I’m biggering,

Though biggering is triggering more biggering.

I won’t stop!

Biggering,

I’m figgering I’m biggering,

And biggering is triggering more biggering

And the customers are buying,

And the money multiplying

And the PR people lying

And the lawyers are denying,

Who cares if some things are dying?

I don’t wanna hear your crying!

This is all so gratifying…
