"Let's Talk About Me" is a song about Tex Richman's business and his hatred for the Muppets, written for the 2011 feature film The Muppets. The operatic bridge, which explains the source of Tex's hatred of Muppets, was sung not by Chris Cooper, who portrayed the villain, but by Nathan Pachecho. That part is cut out of the film, but is included as a bonus feature on the Blu-ray. The final song was rapped by Chris Cooper, with singing by Richman's background dancers.


Tex: I'm Tex Richman, Mr. Texas Tea
People call me rich cause I got mo' money
I got more cheddar than some super sized nachos
Got cash flow like Robert has De Niro's
I use more greens than Vincent Van Gogh
I make the baker bake my bread out of dough
No no don't eat it though it'll make you ill
There ain't no flour in a hundred dollar bill

Backup Singers: He's Tex Richman
Everybody listen
Just how great it is to be him
(It's great to be me)
He's the greatest
You're the lamest!
Muppets are a waste of time
Oh, can't you see?

Tex: Yeah, it's funny in a rich man's world
When I need a piece of string, I use a string of pearls
If something's for sale, consider it sold
I've got so much gold, I gold plate my gold!
I even got a guy to gold plate my cat
I don't regret much, but I do regret that
If I could start all over, I'd do it all the same
Except I wouldn't gold-plate little Twinkles again!

Backup Singers: He's Tex Richman
Everybody listen
Just how great it is to be him
(It's great to be me)
He's the greatest
You're the lamest!
Muppets are a waste of time
Oh, can't you see?
(Tex: Oh, it's great to be me)

Tex: I recall a heartbreaking story
About my own tenth birthday party
Should've been a glorious day for me
I'd have been happy as can be
But the Muppets were there,
To put on a show!
They started to dance,
They were telling their jokes!
I didn't laugh,
I didn't know how!
Then my friends,
They all turned around,
And they laughed at me!
They laughed at me!
I hate you, Muppets so!

Backup Singers: He's Tex Richman
Everybody listen
Just how great it is to be him
He's the greatest
He's the greatest
Muppets are a waste of time
Oh, can't you see?

Tex: Little muppets, time to give up your dream.
