The Lyrics

A lot of thought and dedication goes into character design. I should say, a lot of thought and dedication SHOULD go into character design. Sometimes, you know, people get lazy.
Character designers, cursed with their art gift
Asked all of the time to draw a whole ton of shit
So copy-paste reuse? Somethin' I can excuse, that's fine
But there's still a kind of quirk that I don't like
To differentiate boy and girl types
The one shortcut they use just stinks, really stinks to me

Just slapped on a pink bow
The effort put forth's a fat zero
It's not that hard to do
To switch things up a little bit
No time crunch that I can see
So why design it so lazily?
It just looks super lame
How can you tell she's a chick? Slapped on a pink bow

Give her lighter colours or longer hair instead (and)
And maybe high heels if someone insists
Or maybe have the only way
To tell is their voice, mate

You just slapped on a pink bow
To me, that means that you are a joke
Know what you'll claim, my dude
That it's satirical, that trick
Is somethin' I can't believe
'Cause nothin' else in this series screams
"I have a point to say" (yeah)
Don't think that excuse will stick, slapped on a pink bow

Did no-one warn you "This won't go well?", oh-oh
A shame 'cause this show is rather swell

Just slapped on a pink bow
'Cause I guess that's all you need to show
That she is not a dude
I really don't like laziness
If the designer was me
I hope I'd put in more thought there, geez
But maybe you're restrained (no real free reign)
Mandates can be such a bitch, slapped on a pink bow
It should be (it should be) easy to let it go
This part's not aimed at you (it isn't)
I know I need to not nitpick
That is a point I'll concede (yeah)
It's not your job to please only me (but)
But still I have to say
That this trope is really hack, I'm pissed, slapped on a pink bow

Edgeworth: I suppose this is the Pink Badger? But since it has the same design, doesn't it seem forced to call this one a female? Kay: You think so? I mean, just look at how long her eyelashes are!
Edgeworth: That's the only difference.
Kay: And the fact that she's pink.
Edgeworth: Yes, and?
Kay: And her lips are red! See, lipstick!
Edgeworth: (thinking to himself) What? She has nothing to say about the giant pink ribbon, or is that too obvious?
