The Lyrics

When I write parodies about TV shows and other such media, I try not to be too esoteric in my choices. This is not of of those occasions. Obscure internet show time!
There's a lot of funny shows online
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I consider myself a real big fan
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
The Spoony One, Linkara, Nash and Phelous
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
But one I feel deserves more attention
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
They do reviews, they do riffs
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I think you should add them to your YouTube list
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I doubt that you'd have heard about this one
To sound like some big hipster schmuck
A review show hosted by puppets, it's somethin'
Of which there ain't much

You should go see-ee the show, the Isle of Rangoon
Isle of Rangoo-oon
And you will see-ee some off-beat comedy
That I think is coo-ool

Sunny Jim thinks that ev'rything is food
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Kinda dim, but his critiques are shrewd
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Starchibald's neurotic, to a point that's sad
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And he's allergic to whimsical sap
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Together they're a whole lot of good fun
Tearing bad film shorts a new one
And sure, their schedule's kind of erratic, but listen
The wait's worth it, bud

You should go see-ee the show, the Isle of Rangoon
Isle of Rangoo-oon
And you will see-ee some real solid critiques
From a pair of foo-ools

Hounded by that damn Mysterious Malefactor
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sending them bad film shorts for their riffing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Not the most dastardly of all villains
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And his static-y voice is annoying
Once more, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
But hey, he gives the show a plot of sorts
Who is he? And where is he from?
But the Rangoons have their attentions focused elsewhere
Why won't the film stop?

You should go see-ee the show, the Isle of Rangoon
Isle of Rangoo-oon (he-ey, yeah-eah, yeah-eah, eh-he-ey)
And you will see-ee Sunny Jim as he eats
DVD's, the foo-ool (scrumptiou-ious)
You should go see-ee the show, the Isle of Rangoon
Isle of Rangoo-oon (he-ey, yeah-eah, yeah-eah, eh-he-ey)
And you will see-ee Starchibald as he freaks
At absolute tools (assho-oles)
You should go see-ee the show, the Isle of Rangoon
Isle of Rangoo-oon (he-ey, yeah-eah, yeah-eah, eh-he-ey)
And you will see-ee some not-bad comedy
I like it, that's a-all (watch i-it)

Couldn't find a way to work in their tagline "Adventures in Learning and Sarcasm". Oh, well. Seriously though, give them a looksee, they're pretty good.
