Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The idea for this came, oddly enough, from hearing Luke Ski's homage to "Family Guy", "Gettin' Giggity Wit It" (at thefump.com). In the middle,it mentions "...when the Black-Eyed Peas were on 'Doctor Who'" and played the chorus of "Let's Get It Started" but with "the TARDIS" instead. Since Luke already did a parody for Series (Seasons) 1 & 2 of the new show ("It Takes Who"), I decided to ste...er, to ADAPT that short line into a recap of Series 3, the first series of the show I saw on SciFi. Share and EXTERMINATE...er, I mean, Enjoy.
Let's get in the TARDIS, Martha...

[Jack Harkness:]
And the Time Lord's runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin',
And runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin',
And runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin',
And runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and...

[Doctor:]
Rose Tyler's gone, but I must go on.
Find a new companion to get it on
We got thirteen eps in which for love to spawn
Who'd've known it would be an African-Briton
Lass's name is Martha Jones, she's working all alone
In a hospital that gets scooped out in the ozone
Got taken to the moon, by the police Judoon
We stopped a plasmavore after my blood it consumed
When we got back at last, told her it'd be a blast
To take a small trip to the past

[Chorus:]
Heya, Martha...heya, Martha
Time and space...is my place
Get the TARDIS, get the TARDIS, get the TARDIS...

Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Yeah.

[Martha Jones:]
Doctor "Smith" took me on a trip
To see Will Shakespeare close a rift
Then "New New York" in the future was a cool thing
Though that underground highway's "exhausting"
Depression...Empire State
But these "Daleks" come to "exterminate"
Step by step, they do evolution
"Sec" thinks it's the one solution.
But the rest don't keep him alive
It seems they'd rather kill than to try to survive!

[Chorus:]
Heya, Doctor...heya, Doctor
It's too late..."EXTREMINATE!"
Get the Daleks, stop the Daleks, get the Daleks...

Let's get the Daleks (ha)
Let's get the Daleks out there.
Let's get the Daleks (ha)
Let's get the Daleks out there.
Let's get the Daleks (ha)
Let's get the Daleks out there.
Let's get the Daleks (ha)
Let's get the Daleks out there.
Yeah.

[Jack Harkness:]
Runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin',
And runnin' runnin', and runnin runnin' and...

C'mon, y'all, woo-hoo-hoooo! ["Doctor Who" theme's first notes]
Woo-hoo-hoooo! (in here)
Woo-hoo-hoooo
Woo-hoo-hoooo! (in here)
Woo-hoo-hoooo!
Woo-hoo-hoooo! (in here) Ow, ow, ow!
I'm sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, I'm so sorry!

[Doctor:]
Lazarus makes quite a mess as
Into a living sun, a ship distresses
Become human to dodge a family
Stop Angels sucking on potential energy
Captain Jack at universe's end
"The Master" Saxon becomes the new PM
Tries to rule, but my nice sidekick
Puts him down with some power psychic
I'm alone again for my next lick...
(crash) Oh, damn; slammed the Titanic!

[Chorus:]
Everybody, everybody,
Don't know why? Watch SciFi (Come on)
Get the TARDIS (come on), get the TARDIS (yeah), get the TARDIS...

Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS in here.
Let's get the TARDIS (ha)
Let's get the TARDIS (woah, woah, woah) in here.
Yeah.

Woo-hoo-hoooo!
Woo-hoo-hoooo! (in here)
Woo-hoo-hoooo!
Woo-hoo-hoooo! (in here)
Woo-hoo-hoooo!
Woo-hoo-hoooo! (in here) Ow, ow, ow!
I'm sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, I'm so sorry...

[Jack Harkness:]
Runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'
And runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'...
[fade]
I only expect the "Doctor Who" fans to REALLY get the nuances of the song...but, y'know, there's always Wikipedia and the SciFi Network site to get you caught up on who Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness and the Daleks are. And, even if you don't get it, I hope you liked it anyway.

Wowie, some nice previews of this season, when and if I ever get an opportunity to view them myself. To parody Sir Paul, "You took a bad song and made it bettter". 555

I've got a mate who's a huge Dr Who fan, and will go crazy over this. It's hard to make TV/film parodies funny, but you've pulled it off. No need to exterminate this one. 555

What Ag said - I had to steel myself to read this, as I can't stand the OS (and I've heard it played around the house too much.. but I suppose it's better than "My Humps").. but it was worth it. Excellent Dr Whommage, so to speak.

I'm more into the classic series than the newer ones, and since I don't get any channels with the series on, I haven't even seen any episodes (apart from Season 1's "The Long Game", "The Empty Child" and "The Doctor Dances"). Still, The Cyber-Leader and I found your parody satisfactory, especially "(crash) Oh, @#$% slammed the Titanic!" IMHO, sounds just like the kind of song Luke Ski himself would do (BTW, I'm glad that you gave him credit for the title). Yes, my long-winded comment is FINALLY over. Set that old Polce Call Box for 557 years into the future.
