The Lyrics

In which I summarise the three main entries in the Banjo & Kazooie franchise in the space of a rap song. If it doesn't make much sense, don't worry, that's half the charm of the games. Seriously. If this was recorded, I would replace the na-na's with the voice clips from the game, as they all speaking in mumbles with subtitles. It'd be awesome.
Turn on your N-6-4, let's go
Play Banjo, don't know this pro?
He goes mad, bro when his little sis
Kidnapped kid
Gotta get jiggies for it
I don't kid
Now honeycombs are your life
Kazooie flies, she's your bud for life
You gotta bag o' tricks up your jumper
Moles teach it
Try 'em out, make that Grublin spin
Everything's a danger to thee
Carrots and shit
Cauliflower too, I don't kid
Deadly flotation rings
Also Mumbo turns you into things, too
I'm not lyin'
Walrus and bee without tryin'
Go make the witch pay
For the forced take, go mate
Go earn your jiggies, golden jigsaw bits, great
Yeah, Gruntilda really asked for it
Ha ha
You have your half-baked mission
Gettin' jiggies for it

Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Save your sister wit' it
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Get some jiggies for it
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Better get on wit' it
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana

Well, after all that you did
Grunty had a big fall
Off a really big cliff
She got crushed, now she's stuck, Grunty's gone under
Two years later she's still stuck under that big rock, uh
Who shows up? Her sisters, they're witches
Lift the stone off Gruntilda, she bitches
Mumbo sees the whole ordeal, runs like the dickens
Grunty kills Bottles, that just tears it
Poor mole got toasted, new adventure, bear and bird shall toast her
Now there's Humba Wumba
Turns you into things
Mumbo's trick
Now you play him, do spells and shit
Travel around, learn new moves from Jamjars
Some cool tricks, split up and go far, not too far
Ah yes yes y'all Banjo won't stop
Don't forget that just like the last time
To get new stuff
Go get jiggies for 'em

Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Open levels wit' 'em
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Solve some puzzles for 'em
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Kill some bosses for 'em
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana

Eight years after this, Grunty's back again
Although she is just a
Skeletal head
Main duo's fat after not doing shit
How to settle their diff'rences?
Lord of Games appears, he
Has for a head, an old-school TV
And it plays Pong, that's kinda freaky
So he throws Banj and Grunt into a new comp
To win the title deed to ol' Spiral Mountain, son
Gotta build lots of vehicles
Worlds are too big that's practical
Humba now sells blueprints
She's not racist*
Mumbo builds the cars for you, no kiddin'
This game's moving away from platformin'
We're on a farm made of plastic, no really
Inside the 360
We're still silly
Still get jiggies for it

Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Build some cars and get 'em
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Music notes pay for 'em
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
Whoop Gruntilda for 'em
Na na na na na na na nana
Na na na na nana
* as in her design for the third game was changed so that she wasn't so insulting to Native Americans. 360 = three-sixty, one of the levels of said game was set inside the console. Also, FLOTATION RINGS TRY TO KILL YOU. As do shovels. Awesome!

Fun song! No idea what's going on, though. I'm more of an Atari 2600 man myself!

(Ages) Never played Banjo and Kazooie in ages, ha ha, "ages" like this contest round! Well, never mind! Well, although I don't remember much about the game, your satire says it all...entertaining. Maybe I should go back to playing that game again, or watching YT clips for this. And yes, you should also make a recording for this song someday, like you mentioned..and voice clips would be cool! At first I couldn't keep up with pacing due to fast rapping, but I did sang/read it again, and it's pretty clear to the point. Final score: 555!

I also didn't play Banjo and Kazooie, I was more of a Crash Bandicoot kid myself...but nice work here and I love the OS, your spoof/tribute went well with it! Nice job!

I think I may have played this once. Unusual but most games are. I mean a plumber that jumps through pipes in order to defeat a giant fire breathing lizard is also pretty strange not to mention the fact that he can fly by eating a carrot and getting rabbit ears or spit fire while getting a raccoon tail.

(AofA) I had Banjo and Kazooie a long time ago when I was really young so I don't really remember much about it. I thought the pacing was grea and from what I remember about the game the references were good too. I liked it. Banjo would've been honored!
Arwen - February 14, 2012 - Report this comment Abbott, I was a Crash fan...(still love that game, actually)...but this was well written, even though I don't know the game at all. Always have mad respect for those who can do anything rappish...nice work!

(AofA) Love the OS, but I'm sorry to say I've never heard of the game. Sorry, much of this went over my head.
