The Lyrics

The steamiest of punks. The punkiest of steams. The lamest of intro comments because there's nothing I can really say.
Agree this aesthetic looks really nifty
The mechanisms pumping out smoke
To make all this, one needs to be clever
Oh-oh-oh

I never thought that I'd say this ever
But this thing is getting out of hand
Ev'rywhere, its influence
From fan cosplay to real Star Wars comics

You can't find a steampunk version? A lame joke
Browse online, you'll soon stumble 'cross the same, so
'Ey, 'ey, 'ey, 'ey
'Ey, 'ey, 'ey

Was once an obscure bit of esoterica
But now it's all blown up, my escape's a no
It's as common as flintlock replicas
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Now I'm not saying that's made it all lame
Opinion's far from it, still think it looks nice
But just admit that though it's neat
You should really stop saying that your work's unique

Half online fanwork's in this style, afraid so
Lots of shite, some just slap gears on, I hate those
Don't know why it's ev'rywhere now, afraid so
But your line that you had it first? A lame joke
'Ey, 'ey, 'ey, 'ey
'Ey, 'ey, 'ey, 'ey

Not kidding about the Star Wars comics. Look it up. Steam Wars. C-3PO has a handlebar moustache.
