The Lyrics

This is my 6th Marvel song parody of a song from “Like a Virgin (‘85 reissue).” The only difference between the original and reissue versions of Madonna’s Virgin album is the reissue version has her hit single “Into the Groove.” The original version of the album does not have that hit single. Anyways, the following song parody is a Guardians of the Galaxy song parody that is a view from Peter Quill. This GotG song parody is about teenage Groot and his misbehavior during the Guardians’ trip to Earth.
(As the beginning instrumental begins, Groot plays with his handheld video game and Peter demands Groot to shut it off.)

***Peter Quill***:
Put the game down!

***Groot***(mouthing off):
I am Groot!

***Peter Quill***:
Don’t talk back to me!

***Groot***(mouthing off):
I am Groot!

***Peter Quill***:
Shut it off!

***Groot***(mouthing off):
I am Groot!

***Peter Quill***:
You heard me!

(Peter breaks into song.)

***Peter Quill***:
What’s up with that Groot?
He’s made of a root
Grown from a tree

He just plays around
While we fly around
The whole galaxy

Groot’s not aware that we’re on a mission
To stop Thanos and his Earth invasion
Groot is a tree kid who does not act right
But we have got to save the world tonight

We are the Guardians of the Galaxy
Groot just plays with his toys, and he drives me crazy
If that Groot keeps on acting out of control,
He may grow up to be just like a troll

What’s up with that Groot?
He does not commute
Or respect me

Groot acts really bad
Has no mom or dad
Or a family

The three words “I am Groot” are all Groot can say
There’s not another word that Groot can say
Groot vegges out and he does not act wise
Too much of game playing can burn his eyes

The way that Groot dances does not impress me
He stays up late at night, and he acts so noisy
Groot never thinks of me as his own daddy,
But one day, he could be my golf caddy

What’s up with that Groot?
He tries to act cute
In front of me, yeah

Groot stomps with his feet, yeah
To every beat
It does not please me, yeah

Groot is an odd-looking little tree
With a pair of odd-looking knees
Groot has got to join us in time
For this world of mine

I wonder...

What’s up with that Groot?
He’s hard as a boot
So odd to me, yeah

Groot is unaware, yeah
Just to prepare
To go fight for me, yeah

We are the Guardians of the Galaxy
All Groot wants to do is play games on the TV
It seems like Groot really is out of his head
But I hope he does not end up brain-dead

Groot always acts silly around me
But he’s got to go stick with me
On my journey to Earth in time
It’s a world of mine

It’s a home of mine
Got no mom of mine
We will fly in time
To the Earth on time

I wonder...

What’s up with that Groot?
He has got no loot
And no money, yeah

Groot is a child, yeah
Acting wild
And crazy to me, yeah

What’s up with that Groot?
He’s a young galoot
He’s so silly, yeah

Groot will keep in mind, yeah
To spend some time
To team up with me, yeah
This will all be for my Groot song parody of “Into the Groove.” That is all the repeat choruses and stuff I can ever afford to rewrite in this song parody. I have been stuck on this song parody for months, because I have been busy with everything else. Anyways, six song parodies down, four more to complete my Infinity War album parody of “Like a Virgin (‘85 reissue).” Up next: A Marvel song parody of “Dress You Up.”
