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

Lyrics

First Part

[Pupils of Elmore Junior High burst through the door]

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

Frank: "Lord of the Flies" is a book each parent cherishes!
The feral kids survive, but the one with glasses perishes!

Tobias, Carmen, Leslie: [Attack Egghead 1]

Darwin: If you want more blood and guts give Shakespeare's plays a try. [Felicity trips over Darwin's shoes]
In "Titus Andronicus," a mother gets her son served up in a pie.

[Sarah is holding a pie with Billy in it]

Billy: [Spoken] You did this to me mother!

Felicity: [Screams]

Banana Joe: [Dressed as a vampire] Legends, myths and fairy tales,
Will make their readers shriek and wail.

Sarah: [Falls unconscious]

Banana Joe: [Takes a bite from Sarah]

Penny: "Red Riding Hood" is pretty bizarre [Shapeshifts into her wolf form] where a wolf dresses up as a girl's grandma.

Patrick and Mrs. Fitzgerald: [Scream]

Alan: I've read Greek myths just like you sir
When they get beheaded like Medusa.

[Gumball turns his hand into scissors and cuts Alan's rope. Alan's parents and Principal Brown are shocked]

Gumball: And I read "Tortoise and the Hare,"
A tale of torture and despair! [Points finger at a hare and a tortoise, spoken] FIGHT!

Darwin: [Spoken] You haven't read that one have you?

Gumball: [Spoken] Er, no.

Tobias: If you read Dicken's "Oliver Twist," you'd shut the library door and lock it! [Steals Harold's purse and Jackie's necklace]
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! Juke, hit it.

Rap Part

Juke: [Beatboxing]

[Gumball, Penny, Darwin, Carmen, Carrie and Juke are facing the camera]

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 to video games.
They're just as gory.
Romeo, oh Romeo.

[Gumball and Penny hold empty glasses and pretend to drink out of them]

Gumball: [Rapping] Romeo is your homie-o.

[Gumball and Penny pretend to be dead]

Gumball: [Rapping] To be or not to be,
That's the question for a G.

"Huck Finn's Adventures" by Mark Twain. All these books are driving me insane.
So who should really get the blame,
Are books as bad as video games?

[The students run off and start reenacting scenes from several books]

Sussie: [Spoken] Off with their heads!

Tobias: [Spoken] Thar she blows!

[They are all interrupted by Felicity]
