The Lyrics

WARNING: the opinions expressed in this parody may not accurately reflect the opinions of the writer, who's trying (and likely failing) to depict a common impression of internet nerds in that they dislike every adaptation of the basis of their fandom seemingly just on principle. This has been another message from the Pre-Emptively-Pulling-The-Writer's-Arse-Out-Of-The-Fire Corporation.
Easy way to get nerds d-down (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
Remind them how Spawn went down (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
Your mileage may vary, th-th-though (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
But some nerds call all film versions "loads" (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)

They're all crap adaptations
To some nerd generations, buddy

On keyboards they ttttttype away (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
'Bout how Man of Steel was really l-l-lame (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
And flaws lead to caps-lock cond-d-demnation (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
Thus ev'ry film's a crap a-a-a-adaptation (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)

Crap adaptations
They're all crap adaptations, buddy

Did I just hear ssssssomeone say (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
That The Dark Knight sh-should never be p-p-p-p-p-played? (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
I try to not go mad debatin' (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
But how's that a crap a-adaptation? (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)

Cause it's an adaptation
It's a crap adaptation, buddy
Crap, crap, a-adaptation
Crap, crap, crap, crap, adaptation

Tweets and forum posts ab-bound (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
Tearin' comic b-b-book films down (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
Just cause they exist, I'm t-t-told (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)
That phrase "raped my childhood"'s gettin' real old (talkin' 'bout crap adaptations)

They don't like adaptations
Always crap adaptations, buddy
Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap a-ad-adaptation

They're all crappy adaptations (all of 'em? Wow)
Superman? Crap adaptation (they're crap adaptations?)
Spiderman? Crap adaptation (crap adaptations?)
Iron Man? Crap adaptation (not crap adaptations to me)
Hulk? They're both crap adaptations (first one's crap, my admission)
Avengers? Crap adaptation (that's no crap adaptation)
Even Batman Animated (makin' this up, I reckon)
Ev'ry one, crap adaptation (just cause they're adaptations?)

If this seems a bit shizophrenix in terms of whether singer believes every adaptation is crap or bad, but anyone who's at least witnessed a fandom discussion in action knows very well how back-and-forth the opinions can get.
