The Lyrics

Part of a big series of parodies about the Tomb Raider series of games. This song parody is based on a true story. One night in 2000, I was reading The Croft Times and saw a link to a chat room. Thinking that it was an ideal way to meet other fans, I logged in. It was totally empty like a tomb and I spent a while waiting for anyone to turn up and no one did. This song is not to insult the creators of the chat room who were obviously well meaning people trying to make our community a better place and trying to help theexchange of ideas amongst others. Without that link from The Croft Times, I wouldn't have met the webmaster of the old site I used to write for. So in a way, I'm very grateful for that wasted time. : -)
Hi, my name is Ocean-Sirius.
Yeah, we got three hours to cruise The Croft Times
and not much is happening this Saturday night in this part of England.
You can all dial up your modems to answer a couple of questions,
namely, what is happening in The Tomb Raider community.
Just signed into Live Universe as a guest.
Will I have a good chat? We'll see about that...
Give us an instant chat message! It's a boring night.

Yeah everyone, this is Ocean-Sirius wait waiting,
Want to meet another like-minded fan.
Waddya think? Anyone else there?

I logged on again that night with the screen in my eyes,
When a link was there with a fun surprise.
A chat room place with a twist,
Was a completely empty place and didn't seem bliss,
"Anyone else here?" I said:
"I think I'm all alone today."

I did nothing,
Absolutely nothing in that chat, and I say:
What the hell was I doing drinking in Lara's Pub all alone?

I got my own drinks to flavour,
Maybe someone will be there later,
Still I need a fan.
And the clock was showing the time as ten,
As I thought of completing Venice again.
Blaring out the radio,
Sipping on ginger beer,
Just wishing for a friend.

Feeling it'd be groovy,
The truth didn't soothe me. (Quiet night!)

I did nothing,
Absolutely butkiss that chat, and I say:
What the hell was I doing drinking in Lara's Pub all alone?

With my mind on my community and my money on my... connection!
I know that life is crap without cash,
So I better swot up,
And take my exams quick.
Yeah, few more years I hope I'm not too thick.

Some more time there would have hurt me,
Another chat room's where I wanted to be.
Wanted to discuss my fave cyber star,
About the creation done by Eidos and Core.

Then a chatter turned to me and said:
"Age sex and location?"
We've got another life form,
And I guess that's something, so I ask you:
What the hell was I doing drinking in Lara's Pub all alone?

I got my own drinks to flavour,
Maybe someone will be there later,
Still I need a fan.
We need to find more people,
Call back Sunday and maybe we'll fill it all up.
La-Ra's-Pub, La-Ra's-Pub, Lar Ra's.!..
So I ask you:
What the hell was I doing drinking in Lara's Pub all alone?

Ocean-Sirius.
