The Lyrics

STARSCREAM enters the DECEPTICON base, right into the middle of a group of the more prominent minions: SOUNDWAVE the loyal comms. officer, SKYWARP the brutish prankster, THUNDERCRACKER the doubtful bomber and RUMBLE and FRENZY, a pair of petty thugs who are two of SOUNDWAVE'S cassette minions. They recognise the look on STARSCREAM'S face as the beginning of yet another attempt to wrest control of the DECEPTICONS from MEGATRON...
[Part 1: I'll Lead the Decepticons]

Soon, we're gonna be on top
Cause I'll lead the Decepticons
Cause Megatron's time is almost done
Only he will get blown up
Ev'rybody listen in
Give this plan a try, we'll be livin' well
Sendin' Prime to hell
Or whatever our version is

Got no reason to trust me
Cause I'm just a high-pitched freak
But this time I will succeed
Energon will flow free

Situation is the pits
Always gettin' shot to bits
Repairs are crude, got no medic, true
And will Megs get one? There's no way
The next week, do it all again
Never makin' any progress
Fold under strain, screechin' "Run away!"
Anyone here think that's okay?

Didn't think so, so you see
We'd be better off with me
Callin' ev'ry shot, so please
Let's all work as a team

[Part 2: This Is Not a Plan]

Megatron may be a jerk, to that fact, I'll cop
But as a better option? Sorry, you're not
Don't care how well you can fly
We all know you're a worse coward, we'd be insane
To make you our boss just because you claim
That you won't fail this time

It's (hey!) always a trick (hey!)
Listen, Screamer (hey!), you can take your null ray (hey!)
And jam it up you-know-where
This (hey!) is not a plan (hey!)
I recall (hey!) your past attempts, it's the same (hey!)
I don't see why we should care

Sure, Megatron's leadership's far from a ball
And it seems all our plans have never left "stalled"
And still he won't let us rest
But you need to do better than "he's a jerk"
To convince us that your latest scheme will even work
Cause buddy, I'm not impressed

Out (hey!) with it, gearstick (hey!)
What's the diff'rence (hey!) 'tween now and yesterday (hey!)
When your shots flew through the air?
This (hey!) is not a plan (hey!)
It's barely (hey!) a concept, this is so lame (hey!)
Tell us all why we should care

[Part 3: You Should Care]

If I was such a dope
How am I still here, though?
Second-in-command, so there
Scientist, you should know
No drop-out, things I know
I'm smarter than him, so there
I'm more than a big joke
I am your one true hope
To not all get killed, so there
It's the last straw, you know
Cybercamel's back broke
Gonna prove if you don't care
You should care

I know I'm an egotist
In the past, that's made me trip
Script recycled, I'd always claim
"Megs is fallen! Give me praise!"
But as of now, that's the old me
I know that in order to succeed
I've gotta think a little more beyond
"Now I'll lead the Decepticons!"

If you work with me
You'll be more than minions, see
I'll make that my creed (new philosophy)
And that's why, you see (yeah)
You all should care (ooh, ooh, ooh)
You should care (ooh, ooh, ooh) (yes, you should)
You should care (ooh, ooh, ooh) (yeah)
You should care (ooh, ooh, ooh) (aah)
You should care

[Part 4: He's On To Something]

He's on to something, still not innocent
Of turning traitor, he's always been betraying
But Megatron keeps him alive, I'm sure
A sane bot would have crushed his spark in his fingers

Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

My loyalty has always been ignored (ooh-ooh)
Tapes have been treated like base scum which I abhor (ooh-ooh)
And though I think the best leader's not you (ooh-ooh)
Starscream's the one with the drive to pull off such a coup (ooh-ooh)

Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh

[Part 5: Failure Will Not Approach Us, No]

By now, you should agree
Megatron should up and leave
He always runs away
His catchphrase is "Retreat!"
But I think he'll find (ooh-ooh)
He'll be the only one this time (ooh-ooh)

Want to tear him to shreds
So that there's no revenge
What happens now, either way
We'll try to make it stick
But I think it's time (ooh-ooh)
To aim our lasers at his eyes (ooh-ooh)
We might be hurt, right (ooh-ooh)
But so is he, there's our base line (ooh-ooh)
To kick his hide

That Megatron's insane, failed us too many times
Decepticons are now a joke
Under my mighty reign, we won't lose any prize
Failure will not approach us

We're kickin'
We're kickin'
We're kickin'
Ah, let's kick some chrome

With the surprising support of the eternally-loyal SOUNDWAVE, the small rabble of DECEPTICONS pick themselves and begin to rally the troops for a final stand against the unhinged MEGATRON...
