"Kinderlumper" is a song from the episode Der Kinderlumper sung by Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Originally sung by Heinz Doofenshmirtz's mother to him, it tells the Drusselsteinian fairy tale of the ferocious Kinderlumper, who takes misbehaving children and puts them in his gundersack. A version presenting the Kinderlumper as a positive figure is partially sung by Roger later in the episode; this version was also taught by their mother. The different versions are meant as another reminder of how much more their mother loved Roger than Heinz.


Dr. Doofenshmirtz's version

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: The Kinderlumper's probably gonna get ya
'Cause you've only ever been an awful kid
Pretty soon he's gonna come and catch ya
Then everyone will know just what you did

If you make some bubbles in the bathtub
If you've got saliva in your mouth
If you ever feel the need to blink your eyeballs
If he finds you breathing in and out

The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya
The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya

If you ever drink a glass of water
If you turn your head just slightly to the right
If you ever feel the need to use the bathroom
Then the Kinderlumper's gonna strike tonight!

The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya
The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya!
The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya
The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya!
He's gonna get you good!

The Kinderlumper's gonna get ya!

Roger's version

Roger: The Kinderlumper's always going to love you
And bring you lots of presents while you sleep...

Doofenkinderlumper:Whoa whoa whoa! Those are NOT the words!
