The Lyrics

To approximately no-one's surprise, MEGATRON has decided to give the treacherous STARSCREAM "one last chance" for what feels like the four millionth time. While this last attempt was more elaborate than most, it seems almost routine at this point, as is the thoughts of the AUTOBOT scout BUMBLEBEE as he goes on his last patrol for the day...
Ev'ry time Megatron calls out "Retreat!"
With that white plane always right at his feet
I'm always shocked that Megs has not just kicked his aft
One could set their internal clock by his backstabs
And with how violent Megs is, he still shows such restraint
So I'm wonderin' why Starscream still lives

Does his combat skill put others to shame?
Does he remind Megs to not be so tame?
If I had somebot who always tried to backstab
I'd bet my reflexes would be real sharp, I grasp
At whatever straws are, I just know that human phrase
I just plain don't get why Starscream still lives

He's clever, tongue's silver
At backpedallin', he's a pro
Great trickster, bad schemer
Why he's still tryin', I don't know
'Fraid nothin' is comin' to my mind (he's clever, tongue's silver)
Why "Starscream's dead"'s not happened yet (at backpedallin', he's a pro)
Feel really clueless, please tell me why (great trickster, bad schemer)
His dark spark still beats, I don't know (why he's still tryin', I don't know)
Know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know

As I watch them take flight
The thought keeps runnin' through my mind
But not for long, cause I
Know that success belongs to Prime

And with his ruminations complete, BUMBLEBEE drives off into the sunset, the curtains closing on DECEPTICON IDIOT: A CYBERTRONIAN ROCK OPERA.

Thank you all for mildly tolerating my nerdy nonsense clogging up the "daily parody" list for the last coupla weeks!
