The Lyrics

Look if you had one shot to sit on your lazy butt
And watch all the Eddie Murphy you wanted
Until your brain turned to mush
Would you go for it or just let it slip, yo

Remote is ready
Eyes wide, palms are sweaty
Because I started the movie already
Always watchin that Eddie
Just play and stay
My DVD is ready
So I play
A marathon is what I'm watching

Grab yourself a pop
We'll start at the top
Watch Beverly Hills Cop
He works well with props
Buy movies at the shop
Never gonna stop
No movies ever been a flop
One actor I'll never drop

Films based off reality
Oh the humanity
Oh he's a celebrity
Watch the profanity
Films are made creatively
Whoa the insanity
Film ends unfortunately
And they all end happily

It must be a lie
If you don't like I-Spy
Watching films that make me cry
And watching people die

Look ma some refreshments
Oh it's an intermission
I'll go get a snack with your permission

Your gonna lose your mind watching Eddie Murphy
They told me they'd scold me
But I still buy every video
I own Mulan, Holy Man, and Metro
The Nutty Professor 1&2 and Showtime

Your gonna lose your mind watching Eddie Murphy
They told me they'd scold me
But I still buy every video
I own Mulan, Holy Man, and Metro
The Nutty Professor 1&2 and Showtime

My butt is hurtin
As I watch Vampire in Brooklyn
Who Needs Jerry Springer
Not me
Because I can always watch Bowfinger
I don't need to watch Trading Spaces
Because I can watch my favorite movie
With Dan Ackroyd called Trading Places

I really don't like animation
But what the heck
Think I'll rent that film
With Mike Myers named Shrek

I recently went to the theater
And I couldn't help but stare
While looking at the big screen
And watching Daddy Day Care
And it was really funny

Your gonna lose your mind watching Eddie Murphy
They told me they'd scold me
But I still buy every video
I own Mulan, Holy Man, and Metro
The Nutty Professor 1&2 and Showtime

Your gonna lose your mind watching Eddie Murphy
They told me they'd scold me
But I still buy every video
I own Mulan, Holy Man, and Metro
The Nutty Professor 1&2 and Showtime

Oh I always wonder
How you can always bash
Great Eddie Murphy films
Like The Adventures of Pluto Nash

I am a big fan
When I see a new film I go wild
One of my favorites
Was the film The Golden Child

Most films carry odd things
I'd say they have addicting powers
Because I couldn't leave my seat
During 48 hours

I'm always gonna watch
Every film no matter how good or bad
I think every movie is so very rad

I always watch him from live on Saturday night
Then rise to films like Harlem Nights
Put me on the spot
'Bout every film I've bought
I was planning on taping Boomerang
I forgot

I watch films with or without a plot
I'll stare till my legs are numb, my eyes blood shot
Because I've only got
One brain to rot
I'm gonna spend my life watching Eddie Murphy a lot

Your gonna lose your mind watching Eddie Murphy
They told me they'd scold me
But I still buy every video
I own Mulan, Holy Man, and Metro
The Nutty Professor 1&2 and Showtime

Your gonna lose your mind watching Eddie Murphy
They told me they'd scold me
But I still buy every video
I own Mulan, Holy Man, and Metro
The Nutty Professor 1&2 and Showtime

You can watch any film you want to man

That is a devotion to a funny actor who deserves some sort of...funny...award....or something. The pacing was a bit off, but then again, Wierd Al's version was from Eminem's version, anyway. I give you credit. Good job!
