The Lyrics

Not everybody wants your crazy cybernetic enhancements, dude. Do you want Cyberpunk 2077? 'Cause that's how you get Cyberpunk 2077.
I broke my arm so I can get
Your impulse to make sure that
Nothing like that happens again
But I just don't, I just don't, I just don't know
You're assuring me you'll back
Off if I say "No", I doubt that
Looking like a mad scientist
Knife ready to, ready to, ready to go

Gonna have to just back away
Both your eyes looking kinda crazed
I'll avoid your proposed upgrade
Looks like it's meant for shooting holes in space

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-ho
I said "No", I said "No"
I don't want you to "improve" me, mate

Not just the arm, I wish you'd stop
Offering legs to prevent hard drops
Jetpacks, sharp teeth, metallic butts
I don't really, don't really, don't really want

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-ho
I said "No", I said "No"
I have no use for a cyber brain
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-ho
I said "No", I said "No"
Just get it through, I prefer my state

Put down your big blades, it's over
Know you want a me controller

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-ho
I said "No", I said "No"
I refuse to be your test frame
I-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, ho-oh-oh-ho-oh-oh
I said "No", I said "No"
Wait, are those fumes? Oh no, I feel faint


By sheer coincidence (assuming this comes out the day I intended), my parodies on two consecutive Wednesdays were Todd in the Shadow's #2 songs on his best and worst list for 2021, respectively.
