The Lyrics

A DarkJon64 parody competition entry.
Standing in the swamp with a donkey
Invaded by a fairy-tale squad
The ogre called Shrek said
You gotta go back
But they've been banished by the evil Farquaad

Shrek! You know it ain't easy
You know an ogre can't sleep
So go and see Farquaad
He's going to chuck out these creeps

Finally brought the donkey to Duloc
Beating up the soldiers (again)
Farquaad stands up to say
I will make it O.K.
Get me this princess that I've got on the brain

Shrek! For you it is easy
Now, just how hard can it be
So leave now, get going
Go get that princess for me

Managed to sneak in past the dragon
Who has the hots for Donkey it seems
Princess Fiona said
Take me off of this bed
Take me away, O Man of my Dreams

Shrek! You know it ain't easy
You know it's hard to get free
To rescue the princess
(Not to mention Donkey)

Beating up that money-grabbing Robin Hood
Arguing all day with the donkey
By night the princess
Shows signs of distress
You don't see nothing of her when the sun's down, think!

Guess that Shrek's in love with Fiona
Feelings he don't know what to say
But now Donkey's seen right
What she becomes in the night
She looks a princess just in the day

Shrek! You know it ain't easy
And I ain't taking the piss
To rescue the princess
It will take true love's first kiss

In Duloc getting married to Farquaad
Wedding is disrupted by Shrek
The prince may regret
By the dragon he's et
But it's good the ogre's got his girl back

Shrek! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
True love's kiss is glowing
She's an ogre like me
The way things are going
It's time for karaoke

Very cool, sums up the movie. But I don't get the takin' the piss line. Also, how would you sing that syllable with the original descending Lennonism?
Phil Alexander - October 22, 2003 - Report this comment
"I ain't taking the piss" = "I'm not making fun of you/I'm not joking", which seemed appropriate when telling Shrek he'll have to kiss her... and you'd have to sing it as two syllables (sort of the way a Texan would say "sheeyit" :-) )
