The Lyrics

It's pomo! Postmodern! Alright, weird for the sake of weird.
Rubber butter?
On my brain, this is too tryin'
Rougher udder rudder?
Must be some drug use you've been hidin'
I know this script's meant to be strange
But you've gone way too far, okay, mate?

Soccer copper?
What theme does that plot relate?
Read through this thing twice, no answer
But you won't budge, no part you'll change
A fan of David Lynch? Okay
But you don't share his skill, no way, no (oh)

Floatin' signs (nonsense) and dancin' limes (nonsense)?
No-one will read (nonsense) between the lines, see (nonsense)
Their one plea (nonsense) is shared with me (nonsense):
Oh, what's goin' on (what's goin' on)?
What's goin' on (what's goin' on)?
Yeah, what's goin' on (what's goin' on)?
Oh, what's goin' on (what's goin' on)?
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Ah-y-y-ya-y-y-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya
Ah-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-yeah-yeah-yeah
A-do-do-be-do, be-be-be-eh (be-be-be-eh)
A-do-be-be-be-do, be-be-be-be-be-e-e-do

Undercover
Why imply that guy is James Bond
When this show's not the spy genre?
Don't string the viewer along
Oh, stoners will like it? That's okay
That won't send a huge budget your way, oh-ooh-oh-oh-o

Think you've tried (bollocks) too hard here, right (bollocks)
To pitch to me (bollocks) your weird show, you see (bollocks)
C'mon, no-one needs (bollocks) a show that screams (bollocks)
What's goin' on (what's goin' on)?
Yeah, what's goin' on (what's goin' on)?
Don't know what's goin' on (what's goin' on)
Won't explain what's goin' on (what's goin' on)
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Ah-y-y-ya-y-y-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya
Ah-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-yeah-yeah-yeah
A-do-do-be-do, be-be-be-eh (be-be-be-eh)
A-do-be-be-be-do, be-be-be-be-be-e-e-do
Ah-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-yeah-yeah-yeah
Ah-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-yeah-yeah-yeah
A-do-do-be-do

And that's Davetthias wrapped up. What's next for me (until the next USoP/Pop Danthology drops, that is)? Well, I'm kinda burned out/run out of lists of songs to parody, so I'm just gonna put my playlist on random and parody the first song that might fit into one of those lists (been in a mashup I have, covered by a song reviewer I watch, year-end list, etc). If a mashup shows up first? I'll parody all the songs in that. Unless it's these two, that's pushing it for me.
