Oy Vey! It's Rima![edit]

Title: Oy Vey! It's Rima!
Artist: SB Johnny
Composer: Franz Schubert, Amanda Ghost, Beyoncé Knowles, SB Johnny, and Barsoom Tork Associates
YouTube: Ave Maria — Beyoncé

He was crossed in so many different ways
Out in the darkness with no guide
I know the cost of a war torn land
I heard the voice of Mike cry, "Sigh."

I found Wikiversity
My project, my last, my first
And then I felt this fear inside
Oy Vey! It's Rima!

I've been alone when I'm surrounded by friends
How could this recall be so loud?
But I still survive because I love my goats
There's also Perry when the stove goes cold

Song is my leavening on earth
Song slakes my hunger and my thirst
And then I feel this dread inside
Sighing, "Oy Vey! It's Rima!"

Sometimes strife can come and pass you by
While you're busy trimming plants
Suddenly it hits you and then you realize
It's out of your hands, Barry you got to understand

Song is my leavening on earth
My dithyramb comes first
And then I sense this dread inside
Oy Vey! It's Rima!
Oy Vey! It's Rima!
Oy Vey! It's Rima!

El Jefe Fit the Battle of Abd, Go![edit]

Title: El Jefe Fit the Battle of Abd, Go!
Artist: The Ottavan Empire

El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Abd, Go! Abd, Go!
El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Walls of text came tumbling down.

You may talk about your clowns of Cold Fusion,
You may talk about your trolls with gall
But there's none like good old El Jefe
At the battle of Abd, Go!

El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Abd, Go! Abd, Go!
El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Walls of text came tumbling down.

Now the Lord commanded El Jefe;
"I command thee, now engage you must;
Just wade right into those numpty walls,
Walls of text will turn to dust."

El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Abd, Go! Abd, Go!
El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Walls of text came tumbling down.

Straight up to the drama with Abd, Go!
He charged with banhammer in hand,
"Go jump into a lake," El Jefe cried,
"For the battle is in my land.

El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Abd, Go! Abd, Go!
El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Walls of text came tumbling down.

Abd's walls of text began to feud,
And the music began to sound,
And El Jefe commanded, "Yo! Takedown, d00d!"
Walls of text came tumbling down.

El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Abd, Go! Abd, Go!
El Jefe fit the battle of Abd, Go!
Walls of text came tumbling down.

Can't Stand Bull[edit]

Title: Can't Stand Bull
Artist: The Ottavan Empire
Composer: Jimmy Kennedy, Nat Simon, Irving Berlin, and Barsoom Tork Associates
MySpace Music: Istanbul (Not Constantinople) — They Might Be Giants

Can't stand bull, I'm constantly irritated.
Can't stand bull, I'm constantly irritated.

Been a long time now, I'm constantly irritated,
Now it's jerkish delight on a slugfest fight.

All the time I'm constantly irritated.
Cuz I can't stand bull and I'm constantly irritated.

So if you've come late to my irritated state,
You'll be hearing me say, "I can't stand bull!"

Even Somey's plan was once a punk rock band,
Why he bagged it I can't say,
Gomi just liked it better that way.

So take my word, I'm constantly irritated,
No you can't go slack being constantly irritated.

Been a long time now, I'm constantly irritated.
Why did my irritation get the works?
That's in nobody's interest but the jerks!

Wooly Bully[edit]

Title: Wooly Bully
Artist: The Ottavan Empire
Composer: Domingo Samudio and Barsoom Tork Associates
YouTube: Wooly BullySam the Sham and the Pharaohs
YouTube: Wooly BullyAlvin and the Chipmunks

Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro

Chatty told Daddy about a mean old grouse.
Had two big horns and a grungy mouse.

Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Daddy told Chatty, "Let's don't brook no wrong.
Let's not be ill-tempered, come and sing this song."

Wooly bully, wooly bully
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Chatty told Daddy, "That's the thing to do.
Let's get Barsoom Tork to pull the wool with you."

Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

I Shot Cthulhu[edit]

Title: I Shot Cthulhu
Artist: Pathoschild
Composer: Bob Marley and Barsoom Tork Associates
YouTube: I Shot the SheriffBob Marley
YouTube: I Shot the SheriffEric Clapton
YouTube: Hey There CthulhuEben Brooks

I shot Cthulhu, but I did not shoot the Opera down
I shot Cthulhu, but I did not shoot the Opera down

All around the Wikisphere
They're dying to promote dark fear
They say I may have gone too far
By banning Moulton's Opera

For the sake of an aria, I must declare:
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was too much nonsense

Ottava Rima always hated me, for what I don't care
Every time Moulton planted a seed
I said: "Kill it before it breeds!"
I said: "Kill it before it breeds!"

But I say:
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was too much nonsense

Power came my way one day, and I started hearing sounds
All of a sudden, I see Moulton coming 'round
Aiming to hoot me down
So I shot, I shot his Opera down

But I say:
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was too much nonsense

Addictions got the better of me, and what is to be must be
Every day, the bucket goes to the well
But one day the bottom will drop out
Yes one day the bottom will drop out

But I say:
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot Cthulhu, but I swear it was too much nonsense

Truth in Advertising[edit]

Every Sunday, mourning, over WVBD ...

B&D s’fargenigen.
B&D s’men ken a bootkick krigen.
A schnook, a Kort, a drama queen.
Brengt areyn dayn klenem zing.
