The Lyrics

Heh...Well, those who visit Starmen.net or the GameFAQs message boards might've already seen this...It's just a parody about EarthBound, that great old-school RPG classic! Enjoy, all you geeks and geekettes!
Woohoohoo
Woohoohoo

Ness just hit the floor. There's someone at his door.
Who the heck could it be? Don't they know it's half past three.
Ever since that meteorite
Hit earlier that night,
He's been feeling stranger.
Having dreams of impending danger.

Something inside him tells him
He'll go on an adventure soon.
So he grabs a Cracked Bat
From his sister Tracy's room.
His mother says "My land! That knocking I can't stand!"
He opens the door and sees
His next-door neighbor Pokey

He'll meet Jeff, Poo, and Paula.
He's going to need all of
Them 'cause Hippies and Starmen
Want to bring them to an end
These four kids, from their birth
Were chosen to save their Earth
They don't know what to expect
In 19, 19, 199X

Woohoohoo
(199X)
Woohoohoo

He received a Sound Stone for recording melodies
From Giant Step to Fire Springs
All eight Sanctuaries.
He'll rock with the Runaway Five
Whose lead singer can't drive
He'll fight to stay alive
And make sure the world survives.

Gotta take the pill of Sudden Guts
And go to Winters to find Doctor Andonuts.
He won't have any time to watch TV
In the desert, he'll meet Bookas, UFOs
In his party there is

Jeff, Poo, and Paula.
He's going to need all of
Them 'cause Hippies and Starmen
Want to bring them to an end
These four kids, from their birth
Were chosen to save their Earth
They don't know what to expect
In 19, 19, 199X

Woohoohoo

Dali's Clock, makes time stop
And Musica puts you to sleep with light rock
They'll have to beat odds, like this and much more
To defeat Giy-gas
And, save the world.

Jeff, Poo, and Paula.
He's going to need all of
Them 'cause Hippies and Starmen
Want to bring them to an end
These four kids, from their birth
Were chosen to save their Earth
They don't know what to expect
In 199X

Jeff, Poo, and Paula.
He's going to need all of
Them 'cause Hippies and Starmen
Want to bring them to an end
These four kids, from their birth
Were chosen to save their Earth
They don't know what happens next
In 19, 19, 199X
