Bo fo Sho (2008)[edit]

  • Walkin' my poodles, man, it never gets old
    With my dogs on the leash, I got bitches on the hold
    A first-AIDS kit? That's a rhesus monkey
    I bust more nuts than a pistachio junkie
    • Bo fo' Sho'
  • High school party, senior year
    Boys and girls are all sippin' on beer
    I like soda / Where's the soda?
    Am I the only fuckin' person here that likes soda?
    • High School Party (Girl)
  • My whole family thinks I'm gay
    I guess it's always been that way
    Maybe it's 'cause of the way that I walk
    Makes them think I like... boys
    • My Whole Family...

Bo Burnham (2009)[edit]

  • 'Cause I'm Bo, yo / I'm the greatest rapper ever
    And I'll weather your weather whether you think I'm clever or not
    Think you're better, you're not / Don't need a sweater, I'm hot
    I'm a real G, shorty, that can really find your G-spot
    • I'm Bo Yo
  • 'Cause girls are like donuts when I be bustin' Bo nuts
    I can make 'em cream-filled or give them a layer of glaze
    I'm like Doug's friend Skeeter whenever I meet her
    Because I skeet her so hard people call her Patty Mayonnaise
    • I'm Bo Yo
  • Love is... takin' a dive and gettin' really comfortable and peein' in the pool, and
    Love is... a real-life porn— minus all the stuff that makes porn cool, and
    Love is... a homeless guy searchin' for treasure in the middle of the rain, and
    Findin' a bag of gold coins and slowly finding out they're all filled with chocolate, and
    Even though he's heartbroken, he can't complain, 'cause he was hungry in the first place
    • Love Is...
  • Love is... your favorite food for every breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and
    Love is... the Holocaust, except you don't die quick and you don't get thinner, and
    Love is... bein' the owner of the company that makes rape whistles, and
    Even though you started the company with good intentions, trying to reduce the rate of rape,
    Now you don't want to reduce it at all, 'cause if the rape rate declines, you'll see an equal decline in whistle sales
    • Love Is...
  • What's a pirate minus the ship? / Just a creative homeless guy
    And an anteater plus a large hungry mutant ant? / An ironic way to die
    And what's domain domain range? / A kid with too much in his pants
    And two balls minus one? / Seven titles at the Tour de France
    • New Math

Words Words Words (2010)[edit]

  • We the people of the USA / José, we're not talkin' to you, ese
    We got a border in order to keep you out / It's what my NYU essay's about
    Cause we're xenophobic warrior princess / Molested by my Uncle Sam, is that incest?
    "I Want You... to smell my finger! Does my nephew's scent still linger?"
    • Words, Words, Words
  • Look at all of Bo's hos, lookin' for a ride on Bo's hose
    And I spot a little Latino, booty so big, call it "Oprah's ego"
    We go to it, through it / She says "¡Dios mia, mi amigo!"
    Pull it out, stick it in your mouth, and I bust in the back of ya
    "Swallow bitch! There's people starvin' in Africa!"
    • Oh Bo
  • If I had a dime for every time a homeless guy asked me for change, I'd still say no.
  • If every day you play the board game Risk
    You've probably never taken a risk
    In your life / And Monopoly has far
    From a stranglehold on the board game market
    A little kid died from suffocation
    When he choked on a game piece from Operation
    • IRONIC
  • We [artists] ask questions! [...] Questions like "Where are all the Sour Patch Parents?" Questions like "If Mickey's a mouse, and Minnie's a mouse, and Donald's a duck, and Daisy and Goofy-- if they're all animals and they can talk, why is Pluto just a fuckin' dog? Did they just forget to anthropomorphize him, or worse, is Mickey keeping a mentally-handicapped dude as a pet?
  • We know, Lord, from John 3:16, that you so loved the world that you sent your only son to die for us. Your only son! But at the same time, we're all your children, so in your eyes, we're a bunch of girls. So help us as we struggle with the temptations of lesbianism. Amen.
  • The average person has one Fallopian tube. [pause for laughter] The average penis length is 5.5 inches, and finally, the average penis length of a man who googles "average penis length" is 3.5 inches.
  • I must be psychotic / I must be demented
    To think that I'm worthy of all this attention
    Of all of this money you worked really hard for
    I slept in late while you worked at the drug store
    My drug's attention / I am an addict
    But I get paid to indulge in my habit
    It's all an illusion / I'm wearing makeup
    I'm wearing makeup, makeup, makeup
    • Art Is Dead
  • What do you call a kid with no arms and an eyepatch? ... Names!

what. (2013)[edit]

  • This next song is about how sad I am. It's about all the sad stuff; just picture a depressed onion cutting itself.
  • "You shouldn't abstain from rape just cause you think that I want you to/ You shouldn't rape cause rape is a fucked up thing to do"
    • "From the Perspective of God".
  • "Sluts! Sluts! I fuck sluts! Sluts get fucked when I fuck sluts! No ifs, ands, and/or butts, I fuck sluts! I fuck sluts! Nice girls are nice, but no good for nut-sucking! They'll need a serene night to green light a butt-fucking, but that'll be easy with sleazy old slut fucking! Boo to the nice girls, praise he to slut fucking!
    I have a list. A list? Yes a list of all the sluts I've missed. I have not fucked or sucked these sluts and thus my nuts are fucking pissed! So when I fuck the lucky slut my nut removes her from the list; another dumb cum bucket struck from my nut-sucking, suck-it-slut, slut fucking bucket list. (aside to the audience, "Yes! You hear the influences. Chaucer, Keats!)
    Sluts can be white, black, brown, pink, or almond! They can be skinny with big tits or skinny with small ones! Sluts can be perky or preppy or posh with their brains and their clothes all shrunk from the wash! But some sluts are pretty and funny and smart...these sluts can lift all your thoughts from your dick to your heart. They can talk about science or music or art. They can put you together, or they can pull you apart. But don't trust these sluts. Don't...don't you dare. They'll force you to trust them and love them and care! And then they'll be gone and you'll be aware of the hole in your heart that that dumb slut left there."
    • "I Fuck Sluts".

Sourced[edit]

  • I always wanted to be a comedian and actor, [...] I basically stumbled into the music medium, though. I'm OK, but that's about it. I like to think I'm good enough not to negatively affect the performance.
