The Lyrics

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel meh.
Well, cru-u-ud
I'd say somethin' more harsh, but I'll just stick with "cru-ud"
Never thought I'd be wavin' goodbye-ye
But I guess that it's simply the Earth's ti-ime
To blow the hell up
To just blow right u-up

We don't know why-y, whi-ich facts are true
Was someone trigger-happy with nukes?
Was it the bo-omb?
Did somebody mana-age to get God pi-issed o-off?
Don't know who ke-ept all these spaceships sto-ored
I bet they're laid now, for sure

But I'm gonna miss an Earth like you (ooh-ooh-ooh)
You're where I li-ived my life (ah-ah)
Yes, I'm gonna miss an Earth like you (gonna miss my stuff)
Had to leave my stuff behi-ind (oh-oh-oh)
I've been hopin' (hopin') that we're not scre-ewed (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Maybe we'll fi-ind new life (ah-ah)
Yeah, gonna miss an Earth like you (gonna miss you, Earth)
But I don't wa-anna die-ie

Ah-ah
Ah-ah

Things went boo-oom
And now the planet's well and doo-oomed
It's all kind of a bummer, have to sa-ay
If you could see the carnage displa-ayed
You would ask for tons, yeah-eah
Of fresh popcorn, true stu-uff

May seem a sad plight
But I'm more annoyed than I'm heartbroken, all ri-ight
The world had to end while I was busy-y
Watchin' so-omethi-in' on TV

I'm still gonna miss an Earth like you (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Where I lived my-y whole life (ah-ah)
Yes, I'm gonna miss an Earth like you (but there's still a "but")
You had to pick the worst ti-ime (oh-oh-oh)
Ev'rythin' in (all the films in) the MCU-U (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Will never see-ee the light (ah-ah)
Yeah, gonna (gonna) miss an Earth like you (gonna miss you, Earth)
This ship's got no-o Wi-Fi-i

Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Earth's e-explodin' (ah-ah)
'Splosions are coo-oo-oo-ool, dude (ah-ah)
Ah-ah (ooh-ooh)
Ah-ah (can get gra-atin')
Ah-ah (gratin') (ti-i-ime i-it's ta-akin')
Ah-ah (yeah-eah-eah-eah)
Ah-ah (man, I'm gonna miss an Earth like you)
Ah-ah (yes, I'm gonna) (it had oxygen I-I li-i-iked)
Ah-ah (bye-ye-ye-ye-ye)
Ah-ah

I swear the main synth line of this song was sampled in some rap song I've heard. WhoSampled.com came up with nothing, so clearly either it's not an original note progression or I'm just insane. You make the call!
