The Lyrics

Sometimes I write parodies that recap the plot of a film. Let's just do the intro scene this time!
Shown in the intro screen
The guy who lives in a stump is homeless now
Who gives a stuff 'bout the homeless?
Sympathetic plight? That's a laugh
Because the quickly-built community
Priority lies with them, then
There's not much here that I can do
Since they dumped out my stump
I'll wreck 'em (grrr), I'll wreck 'em (grrr)
Got strength on my side
Six-forty-three (gr-grrr) pounds, no low score
Mr. Bad Temper (grrr), Bad Temper (grrr)
All my fault once I unleash the rage
Man, I find that real (gr-grrr) confusing, messed-up lore

Just because I punch real hard
Doesn't mean we can't be pals
Some may call me "bad guy"
I ask why? Please just call me, you can call me Ralph

Player looks at the screen
And I guess that they're short of attention
Got a short little span of attention
Cause whoa, they sure do shake off
My set-up calamity
No one-tear cries here
It seems their role model
Now their new role model has come (grrr), come (grrr)
Should not have flung that landlord
Here comes that happy, sappy (gr-grrr) little pie-faced jerk
No, that's wrong (grrr), that's wrong (grrr)
Fix-It Felix Jr's innocent
Not his fault (gr-grrr) that he's the player

But still, since I punch real hard
No-one wants to be my pal
They all call me "bad guy"
I ask why? Please just call me, you can call me Ralph
Call me Ralph

Jump across the screen
Fix the screen when it breaks, hurts
When my bricks hits him, hurts
When I get thrown down to the ground
Yes, property damage
Is not nice, that I see
But this is all an act
To entertain the human crowds (grrr), they crowd (grrr)
Around our spot in this arcade
Fix this building (gr-grrr) often and then
When night comes 'round (grrr), comes 'round (grrr)
No longer bound to break architecture
Still get treated (gr-grrr) like a weed
Get sent to my stump in the dump yard

Off set, I won't punch them hard
But I still lack any pals
Cause they call me "bad guy"
I ask why? Please just call me, you can call me Ralph
Call me

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na-na na-na
Na na na na, na-na na-na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Grrr, grrr
Gr-grrr
Grrr, grrr
Gr-grrr

I would never punch them hard
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
When they call me "bad guy"
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
They don't get that it hurts hard
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
When they call me "bad guy"
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
I'm tempted to punch them hard
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Hey, if Paul Simon can write a whole song based off one small incident where he and his wife were misnamed at a party, I can write the opening number to "Wreck-It Ralph: The Musical" if I want to.

As a Honeymooners fan, I am disappointed that this wasn't about Ralph Kramden.
