The Lyrics

We’re bored at the Senior Prom
So whip out our Pokemon
If we had girls all Hell would freeze

While romance is in the air
We frankly just do not care
Because that dude spawned a Dragonair

My Pokeball holds a Drowzee
His skills have worked you’re sleepy
But since you played Charmander he is baked into brownies
This brutal game comes from the Japanese

If I could afford the price
I’d buy all their merchandise
There’s even Clefairy underpants

If you think the game is rough
Stop using Jigglypuff
“Go catch them all” so nerds won’t call your bluff
(Your bluff, your bluff, your bluff)

I like lame 90s anime!
Please go insert these movies
I’d watch all day and all evening this pile of DVDs
It’s exciting to see Ash Ketchum scream

How did they think…
Of all these critters in my stack?
(Abra, Mewtwo and Psyduck)
Were these Asian cartoonists smoking crack?
(Electabuzz and Golduck)
I painted Pikachu on my Jeep
(Bellsprout, Slowbro… What the f*ck?)
All other drivers know I’m a geek

Near 500 Pokemon
And me have a special bond
That hot Misty chick Ash wants to drill (wants to drill)
The jocks think I’m bizarre
When I show them all my cards
From my Zangoose to Squirtle and my Bulbasuar

Then those jocks gave me a wedgie
They are such jerks and bullies
That’s why I stay where the spit sprays with all the braces freaks
And four-eyed kings on our nerdy team

(Let’s watch Quantum Leap!)

No “Magic: The Gathering”
Or “Yu Gi-Oh“… Not playing
That “Munchkin” game there’s one thing that you can never beat
It’s “Pokemon” that has that certain gleam
(I choose Butterfree!)

There’s many kinds of nerds and geeks
Love Captain Kirk? You Trekkie?
Or some Role Play but I’m afraid I don’t like D&D
Cause Pocket Monsters make up all my dreams

I can't say that I had ever heard of this OS--very different--and an unusual topic choice for you as well, very well paced and funny too
DJ Blaze - January 14, 2010 - Report this comment
And I thought you said you didn't know much about Pokemon... LOVED IT! 555
Matthias - January 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks Dave... Yeah it's a fairly new song but it's been overplayed by a bunch of college girls so it felt like it deserved to be parodied. And DJ Blaze, I knew you would love this one and I don't know much about Pokemon for half of this parody my thanks go out to Wikipedia.

I haven't played Pokemon since my senior year in high school. Oh, it's also ironic mention the senior prom in the song, because when I was at my senior prom, most of the guys in school chatted about Pokemon and I actually saw them play it on their game boys! LOL! You just caught 555 Pokemon with this one!

I lost intrest in the cartoons a long time ago -- IMO, your description of them as "lame" is pretty accurate -- but I do play some of the games every now and then. Pretty good parody.

(Dec3) Kinda odd how out of all the Pokemon you named, only one of them was not from the original 150 (Zangoose). And no mention of Mudkips? SHAME ON YOU. 555, but still: SHAME.
Matthias - January 28, 2010 - Report this comment
Conq: People are more familiar with the original 150 rather than all of the rest of the Pokemon, and who or what is Mudkips?
Glen S - January 29, 2010 - Report this comment
I made fun of pokemon in a parody years ago, so I suppose I need to support this. Only every played the card game, but very good pacing and very fitting of the tourney. Also, really enjoyed where you subbed in 'Or Yu Gi-Oh' for some reason

I suspect this would be even funnier if I knew anything about Pokemon...but the image is beautifully funny. Excellent job, Matty.
Jeff Reuben - February 03, 2010 - Report this comment
I don't know much about Pokemon, but I agree, I loved the idea behind this. Very funny!

SOTM: Not bad, creative idea...but I think it'd be funnier if I actually understood half the stuff you were talking about lol. Nice work though!

SOTM Sorry for missing this last month, Matthias. Genius!!!
bobpiecheese - February 25, 2010 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above (Mudkip is one of the newer Pokemon, and is a popular meme on the interwebs (i herd u liek mudkips) so yeah)!
Medemia - February 25, 2010 - Report this comment
(SOTM) If I was bigger into Pokemon, I'd enjoy this more but I enjoyed it for what it was. You are right though, the song needs to be parodied more :)
Peter Andersson - February 26, 2010 - Report this comment
Quite good for such an in-the-know fan base topic but I was puzzled by the prom angle (or rather, the no follow up on the/that opening line), would have worked just as well with something like "we all had some nagging moms" to set up the memory lane trip to follow.
Matthias - February 26, 2010 - Report this comment
I just kinda used the opening line to segue into more information about Pokemon instead of relying too much on the past imagery of being a nerd obsessed with Pokemon.
Arwen - February 28, 2010 - Report this comment
SOTM...you mentioned being surprised that this one beat mine in Decathlon...but I'm not surprised at all...this one tickles me. =)

It's still cute, I still don't know any of the pokemon but, very good job working them all in.

Hey Matthias, I love the song it is absolutely brilliant! My friends and I make Youtube videos and would be interested in making a music video using your parody. If you'd like to check out our work you can at youtube.com/classifiednerds. Thanks, ClassifiedNerds

Ha! I love this! When my brother first started watching Pokemon, my first comment was, "What is this bizarre stuff?" But then before I knew it I was blowing ten bucks a pop for Pokemon cards. Yup. I'm a dork. And the idea of a bunch of guys pulling out the Pokemon at prom cracks me up. Great parody!
Mark Scotti - August 20, 2010 - Report this comment
(ABC) Gave you 555 power for this brilliance last time.

Nice work, pacing was a little off in some places, but this is a creative piece! 455

Like I always say, research pays off. This was well constructed, on a Weird Al-level (got a little clunky towards the end, but eh, can't complain too much).

(ABC O & P) Hate Pokemon, love the parody here. Weird Al (or Bob Rivers) quality as Agri mentioned, and excellent alltogether. First time I heard the OS, btw. 5s.

I used to LOVE POKEMON! All I can say about this parody is EXCELLENT!
SideshowJazz1 - July 31, 2011 - Report this comment
True, it's good to see Ash screaming because he's a stupid idiot. I liked Pokemon when I was young, and I used to have a crush on James (Team Rocket of course) but now...I wonder what was going through my head. Love the song!
