The Lyrics

Based upon the Mythos horror stories of H.P. Lovecraft.
Hey there Cthulhu, down there in your sunken city
You're a billion light years distant and the stars look very pretty
From R'lyeh
So close and yet so far away
Ee-yah, Ee-yay!

Cthulhu Fhtagn, or is that k-THOO-loo fuh-TINE?
I can never quite remember, 'cause I'm not in my right mind
Since I met you
No one corrupts the way you do
You know it's true

Oh, it's what you'll do to me
Oh, and all humanity
Oh, you'll rise up from the sea
Oh, kill everyone slowly
Except the ones like me

Hey there Cthulhu, I've been studying your gospel
The Necronomicon, it gives me nightmares something awful
Where I see
The death of all reality
It fills me with glee

So when the stars are right, you'll come and do your worst
But that's okay because I know you'll eat the cultists like me first
When you get here
I know that day is drawing near
I have no fear

Oh, it's what you'll do to me
Oh, and all humanity
Oh, you'll right up from the sea
Oh, kill everyone slowly

A billion light years seems so far
Below the sea, beyond the stars
Of these humans' putrid souls you'll drink your fill
The fools will all make fun of me
But I'll just laugh maniacally
'Cause no one's ever suffered like they will
Cthulhu, I can promise you
That by the time this cult gets through
The world will never ever be the same
Praise your dark name!

Phn'glui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wagh'nagl fhtagn
Boy, that's really quite a mouthful, can't quite cram it in my noggin
Not today
I try to say it anyway
I feel my soul begin to fray
Still I away that frabjous day
Cthulhu calay!

Oh, it's what you'll do to me
Oh, and all humanity
Oh, you'll rise up from the sea
Oh, kill everyone but me
Everyone but me
This song appears on the album "O, R'lyeh? Ia, R'lyeh!" by Allison Lonsdale and Eben Brooks. It is also available as a digital download. Lyrics Copyright © 2008 by Allison Lonsdale and Eben Brooks

Does it make me nerdy that I already knew how to pronounce this before I read it in the lyrics? ;^)

Inspired take on the OS - I loved the way you took such a happy, fluffy-sounding song and put all those dark themes to it! There are all sort of other little easter eggs in it too, like the Jabberwocky reference... and of course the pacing was spot-on too. I've also parodied this one in the past - albeit on a very different theme! Wish I could give more than 555 for this...
