lyrics

INTRO
Ooooh, aahhhh,
You beat the game!


VERSE

Never thought they could stop me
Thought I had the girl, and she rocked my world
(backing: heck yeahj)

Tried to keep her away,
In my secret hiding place: Outer space

Things are fading to black,
There's no turning back,
I'm on a roll!

Maybe tomorrow.. Won't bring me sorrow
(backing: Skull-ma-ged-don)

Fallin' right into the void
Got me thinkin' that I was destroyed
And I'm hopin' that you have enjoyed
Beating me down
(backing: So-se-tsu-ken)

Here's a medal for your victory
To remind you of what you did to me!
Cause you've gotten me down on my knees
Where's the ground?
(backing: Look below you, aaaaah!)

GUITAR SOLO

Yes! Nice guitar solo!
Play faster, Williams!
That's Abobo on drums!
(backing: Aw yeah, nice solo!)

BRIDGE / BALLAD

Please
Remember all the friendship,
I brought into your life!

For Williams, Abobo, and Linda, (backing: he's ottoman)
Together, they skinned ya, (backing: they're not your friends)
Forever my loyal color guard, (backing: they are your rivals)

And I,
A magical skeleton, (backing: a ske-le-ton, no skin)
A-rendered to gelatin!
Because I... (backing: in bone armor, great style!)
I dared to dream..

And in my dream, (backing: so happy, so happy)
I made Marian..
My girl fray-i-end (backing: i'll make her my wife)
(backing: She brings out the best in me)

And in my dream,
We lived happily,
She and me... (backing: my plan was foolproof.. ahh)

Ahh.. Back to reality...


VERSE
But it was not meant to be
They caught wind and they came after me
I never expected to see..
Billy Lee!
(Jimmy: JIMMY TOO!)

Barely had time to prepare, (backing: here they come!)
They were fast on the way to my lair, (backing: help me, someone!)
The tank and the plant and the biker, (backing: tank, plant, mega biker)
Caught unaware!
(backing: ahh, one by one they bit the dust)

Yeah!

(backing: got to my palace at last,)
(backing: they were on a tear and i had to think fast)
(backing: but they fought right past)

I can't believe!!!

I'll be back!
Nya-ha-ha-ha! I'll return one day to antagonize YOU, Billy and Jimmy!
