The Lave Academy `Lumni Association , or L.A.L.A, has asked experienced pilots (Competent or better please) to aid younger pilots by composing a safety minded song for this years graduation. The song will be to the tune of Ancient Earths cult hit "Dumb ways to die" as written by "Tangerine Kitty".
An archive can be found here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJNR2EpS0jw

I'll get us started shall I?

Shoot at random Gal-cops,
Fly towards red/yellow, lollipops,
Take a bio-break in Thargon space,
Introduce a planet, to your face,

Chorus:
Dumb ways to fly,
The Jameson ways to fly,
Dumb ways to fly,
The Jameson way to fly...

(Take it from here folks!)

Truuumbles, Truumbles
How I hate when I get Truumbles,
they eat everything in sight
They even ask me out for a bite
Truumbles, Trumbles
How I hate it when I get Truumbles
As a Jameson, they were so great
but all they do now is eat,eat,eat
Truumbles, Truumbles
Infesting a ship is their thing
the only thing that they leave is your
wedding ring
Truumbles, Truumbles
how do you get rid of Truumbles?
go to the nearest sun
and bake your bun
Then the Truumbles are gone and done.
Then you are no longer a Truumbles Jameson.

Ya-Ta-Hey, I think you may have missed the part where the lyrics are set to a specific tune.

Funny though.

Why don't you pick a song that everyone has heard of? :roll:

I mean who is Tangerine Kitty?

nevermind, I guess including a link to the song in the original post didn't help.

You can't write lyrics to a tune thats not well known. Including a video just doesn't help. You need to go for a tune that people are familiar enough with to write those new lyrics.

But it is set to a specific tune... "heartaches" I tried but I did not know your choice of music.. Besides I am a confirmed noconformist. Why do it someone else's way when yours is sooo much more fun. :D

AHHHHHHHH

Fly into me
Windshield splat like a thargoid gone mad - breach detected
Fly into me
windshield splat like a monk in debt - space, commander!

I would love to throw in space any fucking trumble that's eating up my cargo
cute little critters eating all through my hold
if you want one for yourself it'll cost 30 gold
I'm drowning in their fake
cuteness in my face
breeding on liquors
stop breeding!!!

Fly into me
Windshield splat like a thargoid gone mad - breach detected
Fly into me
windshield splat like a monk in debt - space, commander!

I struggle in anarchic space
pimped out fucking pirates in the lanes that try to shoot me
gang up on my ship with no galcops in sight
I ain't burning out here with no fuel in my hold
I'm livid in my space
trying to outrace
the gang of pirates
raping me

Fly into me
Windshield splat like a thargoid gone mad - breach detected
Fly into me
windshield splat like a monk in debt - won't you press space commander?

Let me take your cargo far away in space
Let me take your person to another place
Let me take that parcel through a paper chase

Let me take your cargo far away in space
Let me take your person to another place
Let me take that parcel through a paper chase
Let me be your taxi for the next ten days
Get on the ship fuck!

Fly into me
Windshield splat like a thargoid gone mad - breach detected
Fly into me
windshield splat like a monk in debt - space, commander

Wish you were paying me three-times-more
Rollin' in a giant-pile-of cred-its
Thousands for just one witch-space-jump
Not going through these feudals
Bombs away!

Nice tune except for the profanity... shows lack of breeding and is sooo conformist to our ugly society of today. :D

"Fly too close to the Sun;
Shoot Star-Jellies for a bit of fun;
Hyperspeed into an asteroid;
Buy a cheap navigation droid.

Dumb ways to fly,
The Jameson ways to fly,
Dumb ways the fly,
The Jameson ways to fly..."

"Think you're looking sideways when it's really aft
Try to drop a Q-bomb when you've fitted Safety Catch
Ram into boulders to collect the rock
These all are symptoms of a really dumb space jock,

Dumb ways to fly,
The Jameson ways to fly,
Dumb ways to fly,
The Jameson way to fly..."
