The Lyrics

When is a treasure chest not a treasure chest? When it's a trap, of course!
I've got a little suspicion today, hold back, fools
This reward just looks way too fake, one big clue
Is the way that it sits in real plain view

I've got a feeling this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true
A certain feeling this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true
If someone unlocks it, we're all doomed

Since I'm allergic to pain and death, let's play it cool
And work out whether or not it's a trap, let's not be tools
Could turn out all that's in it is poison ooze
Another one of those mimic pricks, still have that bruise
Or worst of all: nothing is in it but mismatched shoes
As a distraction, it's slick but still rude

I gotta know if this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true
'Cause it'd suck if this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true
I want some treasure to take, I feel if it's not real, I'm gonna make a mess
Hope that I'm wrong that this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true, oh

Oh-ho-oh, oh-ho-oh
Oh-ho-oh, oh

No, I'm not trying to say that we should leave it be, there could be stuff therein we need
A crucial part to build the ark, whatever, what's our quest?
The point is: maybe this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest is true
There is a chance that this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest is true

Who here is up for inspection? Not it, I'm no fool
I don't want some monstrous worm to infest my brain, ew
Written myself a list of things to do
"Having a chest eat my chest" ain't there, dude

Someone should check if this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true
We need to know if this chest, this chest, this chest, this chest ain't true
I'm too attached to my brain for real, there's no appeal in my own nasty death
Yours is okay, is the chest, the chest, the chest, the chest untrue? Oh

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the be- *is strangled*

Do not believe the 13 (or 40) 555 votes this will get. They are all bogus votes achieved by cleaning out the cookies and refreshing the page.

Wait…this parody isn’t about us?

Have you ever actually TRIED that "cleaning out the cookies and refreshing the page" trick? It DOESN'T WORK (at least not by itself).

SI: I was intending to make a joke about that in the intro but it completely slipped my mind. Which is a neat trick, TBH. Dude: Speaking of tricks, good to know that that accusation is even flimsier than I thought.
