The Lyrics

600TH PARODY, Y'ALL! And as is my tradition, I have taken a song I parodied back when I was stupid an inexperienced and re-parody along a vaguely similar topic. Last time I twisted the original title to be about a condemned man. This time I'm twisting the title to be about videogame death. Because. Enjoy!
Ev'ry game, start a ne-ew save
Mashin' buttons like C, B and A
You don't get many cha-ances (don't get a lot of chances)
Once they're gone, must reload, mate
The game's takin' it's toll, into the death pit I go
I'm runnin' pretty low on lives, guys
So far there's no bugs (yet to find a bug)
So I know that the fault is mine

I, I could use a life
'Fore my character dies
I've got to try, dude, mash both X and Y
I-I, I sure need a life (least one more life)
'Bout to reach the boss guy (shoot him in his one eye)
And I don't wanna die (die, die, die)

Grindin' for lives ain't great (not a task I find great)
It's a hell of a dull gig
Kill a ton of the minion guys (metric buttload of minion guys)
Even though the XP gain ain't that big
I'm so ferocious, owning mooks to get bonus
Lives, but damn, it's gonna take all day
Could grind with big dudes (boy, that sounds weird, dude)
Bigger chance to die that way

I, I could use a life
'Fore the in-game me dies
I've got to try, dude, cause I need those lives
I-I, I sure need a life (need lots more lives)
'Bout to fight the boss guy (and he likes to throw knives)
Against him, always die (die, die, die)

I gotta reload, dude, those damn minions chipped my health away
Progress is too slow, dude, why's it gotta be this way?
Once it was a joke, dude, now my thumbs are gettin' sore, it's lame
My life counter's grown, true, but my sanity has slipped away

I, I must get more lives
So I don't always die
And that's no lie, dude, always fail and die
I-I, I still need more lives (need tons more lives)
"That's enough"? That's a lie (can never be sure, guy)
Seen how often I die? (Die, die, die)

I, I still need more lives (need lots more lives)
Been doin' this for five (ho-urs, weeks or days? Time flies by when grindin' lives)
What's this game's cap for lives?
I might have all the lives (hit the cap for lives)
The routine's set in, guy (I can't stop the life grind)
At least now I won't die
Least I know I won't die (die, die)
Should go fight the boss guy (guy, guy)
Bet I'll lose all my lives (lives, lives)

Good Lord, if you're brave enough to click that link and see just how bad my original parody was, my condolences. Holy crap, I spelled that right on the first try. Happy New Year!
