The Lyrics

Requested By Seth Kenneth Who Is RunningAwayFromTheGamesTheyPlay. Sung By Grover And Herbert Birdsfoot.
[Verse 1: Seth]
Grover Put His Arm Around Herb's Shoulder,
And With A Voice That Sounded Like A Monster, He Said,
"Herb, I Saw Someone That You've Been Spying,
I Don't Want To Fight With You, But I Only Need To Speak With You,
If You Can Only Remember Who's Flying.
And Herb, I Hope You Understand, How Many Of Darius' People Have Been Trying To Deal With This Everyday.
But Don't You Think I'm Weak Enough, And Scared Enough, And Bad Enough, To Run Away From The Games They Play?"

[Verse 2: Grover]
"My Friend, Herry Monster Said, He Got A Call That Said People Ran From Others. One Was Faldahar.
Then Came Herry With A Recycling Bin,
He Opened The Door And Walked Right In,
Then He Flew In Outer Space While On This Star.
And There Was One That I Would Find,
It Got Me Thinking On My Mind,
But I Ran Away From It As Fast As I Can,
I'd Open The Door, And Walk Right In,
And I Could Find Out, What Would Happen,
If I Ran Away From The Games They Play.

[Verse 3: Herbert Birdsfoot]
Herb Quickly Tried To Hide His Tricks,
From Grover Of 1976,
He Didn't Realize That He Escaped From The Lion.
Grover Never Really Known This Game,
Although He'd Think It Was The Name,
He Knew Exactly What He Had Been Spying.
He Discovered Every Revolution,
Every Clues And Even Solutions,
Said The Words He Knew He Had To Say,
"I Hope You're Never Weak Enough, Or Scared Enough, Or Fair Enough, To Run Away From The Games They Play.
"I Know You Hate These Evil Ones, But Grover, You've Been Running From, Another Video Game That They Have Played."
Well, That's What Grover Does When He Sees Video Games Like These, Herbert Birdsfoot.
