“Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-da
If you’re not greedy, you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do”

–Oompa Loompa song from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
I recently came across this because I was was playing with my hair and I noticed that it look similar to the Oompa Loompa’s from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factor. So, I took a picture and with a little amateurish photoshoping, I turned myself into an Oompa Loompa.

This is the chorus of the song that the Oompa Loompa’s sing throughout the movie. This is the main theme of the movie, Charlie isn’t greedy at the end and returns the Everlasting Gobstopper when he could have fetched a handsome sum from Slugworth. His reward for his honesty and character is the inheritance of the Wonka Factory in its entirety. By sticking to his character even when he was mad and upset at Willy Wonka (and Uncle Joe was pressuring him to give it to Slugworth as vengence against Wonka), it paid off for him. Being a movie, it paid off immediately, but in our lives doing the right thing doesn’t necessarily pay off and sometimes the rewards we reap aren’t tangible.
