Lyrics

Children of the New Republic all revere
Belvedere the children's pioneer
Everything that children do Belvedere does too
And everything he does, he does because he loves you
Children of the New Republic all revere
Belvedere the children's pioneer

What fun it is to do the things he shows you how to do!
Report the conversations of your parents to the Guard
Sleep naked with a member of the Inner High Elite
Touch other children's genitals for pleasure
For Belvedere and children it's 'Never say never'!

O Belvedere, Belvedere, Belvedere
With his helpers Stevedore, Tigris and Fingal
Just to hear their names - you tingle!
Belvedere the children's pioneer

Children of the New Republic all revere
Belvedere the children's pioneer
He looks just like a child, but he's really something more
He's what you'd be if you were more perfect than you are
Children of the New Republic all revere
Belvedere the children's pioneer

What fun it is to do the things in this week's episode!
To take your parents, struggling, to the Great Mountain of Death
To sing the party anthem as you throw them off the edge
To speak the children's language and to shoot the children's gun
Round up the children's traitors, to kill them one by one!

O Belvedere, Belvedere, Belvedere
When your friend is by your side nothing can harm you
If danger creeps up while you sleep he sounds the alarm!

Belvedere, Belvedere, Belvedere
With his helpers Stevedore, Tigris and Fingal
Just to hear their names - ah!

Children of the New Republic all revere
Belvedere the children's pioneer
