Thank you :)

And now, for that old Beach Droids classic...
Quote:
Well lobster girls will snip
They really mess with all my hair
And the feline girls with their teeth and claws
I'm scared when they touch me down there

The insects when they've caught ya, really can give you a fright
And the lizard girls with the way they hiss
They leave you poisoned when they bite

I wish they all could be Xequirinian
I wish they all could be Xequirinian
I wish they all could be Xequirinian girls

The frog girls don't like sunshine
Dries up more than just their hands
While those rodent girls count diseases on two hands
And the same with mammary glands

I been all around the eight big charts
And I seen all kinds of girls
Yeah, but I couldn't wait to get back to this place
Back to dating girls with just two arms

I wish they all could be Xequirinian
I wish they all could be Xequirinian
I wish they all could be Xequirinian girls

I wish they all could be Xequirinian
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be Xequirinian
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be Xequirinian
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be Xequirinian
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)

Ok.. now you're just showing off :)
As another_commander said: 10/10.


Here is another rock classic..

"Living on a Space Ship"
(Bon Leesti)

In Galaxy 1, not so long ago...


Jameson has never left Lave
And all he wants now is get out of this place
It's tough, so tough

Jameson signs up to fly
He looks up at the stars and he wants to try
His luck, his luck


I guess
We get a Cobra, thats what we've got
It doesn't matter whether we can fly it or not
A hundred credits, the rest is up to us
We'll give it a shot

Oh We've halfway made it
Oh Oh Living on a space ship
Pirates we kill, cargo we trade it
Oh Oh Living on a space ship


Jameson gets his Cobra in shape
Now he's got flying skills, where he used to dock and scrape
His hull, hmmm his hull.

Jameson stops running away
When there's pirates in the sky, Jameson whispers: I will make you pay
Some way


We get a Cobra, thats what we've got
It doesn't matter whether we can fly it or not
A hundred credits, the rest is up to us
We'll give it a shot

Oh We've halfway made it
Oh Oh Living on a space ship
Pirates we kill, cargo we trade it
Oh Oh Living on a space ship

Living on a space ship


Oooh We get a Cobra, ready or not
You live for your kite 'cause it's all that you've got

Oh We've halfway made it
Oh Oh Living on a space ship
Pirates we kill, cargo we trade it
Oh Oh Living on a space ship

Young frog, there's no need to feel down.
I said, young frog, launch your ship off the ground.
I said, young frog, 'cause there's pirates around
There's no need to be unhappy.

Young frog, there's a place you can go.
I said, young frog, and your ship they can stow.
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Missiles lasers and a few mines.

It's fun to buy at the ship-yard today

Young frog, are you listening to me?
I said, young frog, don't get nothing for free?
I said, young frog, there's the ship of your dreams.
But you got to know this one thing!

Young frog, if you care for your health.
I said, young frog, get some credits and wealth,
And just go there, to the ship-yard today
Tell them fit a large cargo bay.

It's fun to buy at the ship-yard today

You can buy it for a good deal...

Young frog, I was once in your shoes.
I said, young frog, every combat I'd lose.
I felt no way could my ship it survive.
I felt my lasers were so jive...

That's when someone came up to me,
And said, young frog, a new laser you need.
There's a beam here at the ship-yard today.
You can make your enemies pay.

It's fun to buy at the ship-yard today.

And now, for that old Beach Droids classic...
"Scoop Containers"
(Beach Droids)

I, I love the white sticks on my screen
And I know free loot is waiting there for me
I see the flashes of a laser fight
So I head on over to scoop up their debris

I'm scooping up loot containers
I'm selling them at the station
I'm scooping up loot containers
I'm selling them at the station
Scoop, scoop, scoop, scoop containers
Scoop, scoop, scoop, scoop containers

A trader ship, I give it a single shot
I softly smile as it starts dropping pods
When I look in my cargo bay
I know I'l make a fortune when I dock

I'm scooping up loot containers
I'm selling them at the station
I'm scooping up loot containers
I'm selling them at the station
Scoop, scoop, scoop, scoop containers
Scoop, scoop, scoop, scoop containers

Ahh my my those containers
I don't know what, but I'll scoop it up
Ahh my my loot containers
Ahh my my scoop containers
Ahh my my

Gonna need those fuel scoops. Containers are floating out there
Gonna need those fuel scoops. Containers are floating out there
Gonna need those fuel scoops. Containers are floating

Ahhh

Scoop, scoop, scoop, scoop containers
Scoop, scoop, scoop, scoop containers

Na na na na na Na na na
Na na na na na Na na na

You're welcome and thanks for the feedback :)

Good choice.


Another one I did months ago but didn't get around to posting for some reason. In a game which such ophidian influences, it's perhaps overdue...

So, by the band FlightSnake, from the album 'Kraits and Liquors'...
Quote:
Of course I know where I'm going, and I sure know where I've been
Agriculture - Industry, that's the way to make it pay
Primin' the hyper-drive, I'll be there next to no time

I'm milk running again
Milk running again

I don't think contracts are for me sir
Assassins on my tail, pirates at my door
Hoping I make it to the dodecahedron
Of this rich industry, sell my food then buy machinery

Milk running again on my own
Flying down the only lanes I've ever known
Like a Jameson I have sworn that I won't roam
At least not till I find, buyin' furs insead of wines

Why be another mark in need of rescue
In feudal states or anarchies?
So I'm gonna hold on courier runs can wait
Cos I know what it means,
To dock this thing and trade commodities

Milk running again on my own
Flying down the only lanes I've ever known
Like a Jameson I have sworn that I won't roam
At least not till I find, tradin' furs insead of wines

I'm milk running again
Milk running again
Milk running again
MILK RUN-INGGGG....

Milk running again on my own
Flying down the only lanes I've ever known
Like a Jameson I have sworn that I won't roam
At least not till I find, tradin' furs insead of wines

Milk running again...

Thanks.
Just riding the coat tails of Xequirinian Girls..
There's a couple of gems in there, but rhyming 'boyfriend' (in the original) with 'poisoned' is really good. 8)

And now for .. uhm .. yeah ..
I put a frog in there as a shout-out to Space-Age People.



"Traders Rap (My Hold Full of Goods)"


You gotta haul. It's your goal
Gonna make a good dime on Liquor/Wine
You gotta haul. It's your goal
Gonna make a good dime on Liquor/Wine

I see the Witch - Space - Count - Down
I see the Witch Space countdown
I see the Witch - Space - Count - Down
I see the Witch Space countdown

Hey everybody take a look at me
I've got a Cobra M-K-3
I may not have an Asp but I make a good dime
on the goods I buy and sell down the line
Hunting? I don't need to!
So you think that's dull? Well, good for you!
Hey, Merc', You lurk
This frog's got cargo runs to do

I ain't never gonna race, or get into a chase,
I choose, to cruise.
Gonna fly my boat with a heavy load
At a Rich Tech world, I sell my booze
Cargo packed from stern to bow,
I'm selling high, I'm buying low
I'm a freighter, I'm a trader
The market is my target, how I make my dough

Wham! Bam! I jam and van
cargo pods around. You can tell because I got
to you, my hold full of goods
I dock and stock
Main Station or Rock!

Cargo flights, and docking lights
We're buying low, we're selling high
Loading goods, Another trip
Boys with hoses refuel my ship
Hot-Damn! Get out of my way
'Cause they promised me a good price - Oh Yay!
One - two - three - Launch!
Come on everybody we need this trade

Wham! Bam! I jam and van
cargo pods around. You can tell because I got
to you, my hold full of goods
I dock and stock
Main Station or Rock!

You fly a Cobra, or a Boa,
Are you a Python-guy, is that the ship you fly
An Anaconda with belly fat
Or maybe Gold and Gems is where you're at
Make the most of your cargo bay
Don't let pirates get in your way
Having fun on your run, you don't need your gun
Hire escorts to keep them at bay!

Now dock your ship and sell that load
The cargo cranes will help you fill your hold
Gonna make your credits fast
Gonna earn your credits hard
But you'll check the price and take my advice
Because I know that you're smart
Can you fly this thing? - Yeah!
Are you gonna make dough? - Yeah!

Say wham! - Wham!
Say bam! - Bam!

Wham! Bam! I jam and van
cargo pods around. You can tell because I got
to you, my hold full of goods
I dock and stock
Main Station or Rock!

...

Do you want to lurk? - No!
Cargo hauling is fun? - Yeah!
Do you want to be a Merc'? - No!
Are you on a freight run? - Yeah!

Say wham! - Wham!
Say bam! - Bam!

Can you fly this thing?
Are you gonna make dough?
One - two - three - Launch!
Come on everybody let's sell this load

My hold full of goods
My hold full of goods
My hold full of goods
My hold full of goods
My hold full of goods
...

Thanks.
I had a better line for the insects (about their tendency to eat you) but I needed the superior 'joke' to be at the end of the verse.

The rodent line is pretty clunky but then it needed to match the equally clunky (IMHO) line in the original.

Thanks again :lol:

I like the lyrics you've written but I don't think I know the song :?
What is it?

Quote:

Now I remember... because the original doesn't rhyme that much; which is fine, but if you don't know it very well...

Here's another of their radio/mtv hits that rhymes a little more often... or does it :? ...

Original song: Is This Love (Whitesnake)
Quote:
Should've known better, than buy pets you can't control
Now it seems my ship, they just won't leave alone
On my bridge, blocking my sights
But I can't seem to sell you my friends...

You seem to spend your time, filling up my hull
No desire to go outside, you must be rather dull
Is there some pesticide, to clear you from my sight
Cos I don't think I can take anymore...

This trumble, it's been feeding
And this trumble, I've never seen before
This trumble, they just keep breeding
And this trumble, they just keep filling up my hold it seems
My hold it seems

Can't stop them feeding, tried many ways before
Even radioactive goods, they just breed even more
Lose a cargo crate or two, it happens every day
And I don't have the credits to sell
They're in my escape pod as well?

This trumble, it's been feeding
And this trumble, I've never seen before
This trumble, they just keep breeding
And this trumble, they just keep filling up my hold it seems
My hold it seems

This trumble, it's been feeding
And this trumble, I've never seen before...
This trumble, they just keep breeding
And this trumble, I've never seen before...

Sorry, I don't know it! (my fault, not yours :lol: )

Meanwhile, with trumbles on the brain here's a fairly obvious one...
Quote:
Yesterday all these trumbles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly I've lost half the goods I used to see.
There's a cargo hanger lost to me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why they just won't go, I don't know, no one will say.
I bought something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday flight was such an easy game to play.
Now I need my screen to wipe away.
Oh, how they breed since yesterday.

Why they just won't go, I don't know, no one will say.
My old save files gone, how I long for yesterday.

Yesterday this was such an easy game to play.
Narcotics I chase to hide away.
Oh, to perceive my yesterday.

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

OK, I've got a few more then I've got some oxps to update...

First a couple of anthems from the band 'Beam':
Quote:
I've paid my dues
Fine after fine.
Things can get tense when
Shipments must be on time.
'Winders and Kraits,
I've killed a few.
I've had my share of deadlines I didn't make
But I've come through.

(And I need just go on and on, and on, and on)

Chased by assassins, again,
But I'll keep on trading 'til the end.
Chased by assassins.
Chased by assassins
No time for scooping
'Cause I've got a contract to be earned

I can see their bows
I can hear their calls.
But when you take a contract, and everything that goes with it.
You'll need some balls.
But if you'll hear my disclosure,
This life I choose.
I consider it a challenge be sure it ain't no disgrsce,
To jump the docking queue.

(And I need just go on and on, and on, and on)

Chased by assassins, again,
But I'll keep on racing 'til the end.
Chased by assassins.
Chased by assassins
No time for scooping
'Cause I've got a contract to be earned

Chased by assassins, again,
But I'll keep on fighting 'til the end.
Chased by assassins.
Chased by assassins
No time for scooping
'Cause I've got a contract...

And the theme to the latest Gal-Cop recruitment drive for staff in docking control...
Quote:
Buddy you're a boy you're a Jameson
Flyin' in the lanes gonna be a big man some day
You got pirates who chase
Docking ain't great
Pitchin' your Adder all over the place
Singin'

We will we will dock you
We will we will dock you

Buddy you're a trader, raider
Shootin' in the lanes gonna take on them all some day
You got police who chase
Computers vaped
Flyin' your Cobra all over the place

We will we will dock you
(Sing it!)
We will we will dock you

Buddy you're iron man poor man
Pleadin' with lord Giles gonna make the station some way
You got assassins chase
Contract's late
Somebody guide your Python into its place

We will we will dock you
(Sing it!)
We will we will dock you

(Everybody)

We will we will dock you
We will we will dock you

(Alright)

And the last one from me for a while is Haulin Pays' motown classic...

Original Song: Heard it through the Grapevine (Marvin Gaye)
Quote:
I bet you're wonderin' what to do
'Bout those things green red and blue
And why did you buy anything with paws
Because if that was your plan
Well then it sure had flaws
It took you by surprise I dare say
When you checked the cargo bay

Don't you know that they breed real fast in no time
Trumbles drinking all your liquor/wines
On your bridge the little swines
And your just about to lose your mind

Could'a told ya, yeah.
They breed real fast in no time
You bought just one but now there's nine, crazy

You know you weren't supposed to buy
But that furry had the cutest eyes
The harm it would do you could not see
When you launched that one was three
I could have told you myself
But you heard someone else

You know they breed real fast in no time
Trumbles drinking all your liquor/wines
On your bridge the little swines
And your just about to lose your mind

Could'a told ya, yeah.
They breed real fast in no time
You bought just one but now there's nine, crazy

And now there's fur balls far as you can see
And that churpin's all you hear
And you can't help feel you've been used
Now that salesman's disappeared
There's this one thing you must know
That your ship well it's now their home

Don't you know they breed real fast in no time
Trumbles drinking all your liquor/wines, crazy yeah
On your bridge the little swines
You're just about to lose your mind

Could'a told ya, yeah
They breed real fast in no time,
Bought just one now there's ninety-nine, crazy yeah

Could'a told ya, yeah
They breed real fast in no time,
Bought just one now they're multiplyin', crazy yeah yeah
They breed real fast in no time,
Bought just one now can't stop cryin', crazy yeah yeah
