“Grube Roldberg” – Cookie Factory Skit Lyrics

You know…young rich bakers…
You know something we ain't really never had no AP Chem students
We got a whole lotta AP Bio students though!


First stop
Funnel drop
Rolling down the tube, it don't stop stop
Seven more ramps it'll drop, drop, drop
Cooking up cookies in the hot pot
Pinwheel to ramp and dominoes
And the see saw, we got a lot of those
Got the ramp with the dip in it
And the tunnel ramp yea it fits in it

Our team is bad and rube-y
Cooking up As with the Stinny
Those knives they savage ruthless
We got 38 steps, we’re thru with it

Our team is bad and rube-y
Cooking up As with the Stinny
those knives they savage ruthless
we got 30 steps ya were thru withf it

Next step, woo woo woo woo woo
Rampings on rampings got funnels on funnels
Falling into that saw, dude!
Gravity pulls it right through
String pulls down that saw, ooh
Then hits the next saw, loose
Ramp on that wall, woo
That marble gon' hit that dip for me
Pulley gon' hit a see saw for me, hey
Two more ramps and the pendulum, that's sweet

Car rolls on pulley more gravity
Hey we did the work, (joules!)
Pulley it goes, yea
The see saw goes over
Down the funnel, don't loiter
Hit the pinwheel, it gon' move her
