The Lyrics

It's been a while since my last Epic 40 entry, but now that I've gotten into this whole "writing parodies at my animation course because it's not as full-on as I thought", I figured it's about time I got back on track. Therefore: this. Enjoy!
I love science (SCIENCE!) so I've made a plan
To cut costs down (DOWN!), save a bunch of cash on travel
A teleporter of the real fancy sort
It will end all my petrol blues

I'm, like, "Hey, I'll build a metal box
If I could be arsed, maybe paint it like the TARDIS
A police box, that might stand out a jot
But wouldn't it be awesome, dude?

What it looks like, really don't care (CARE!)
I just need a thing to take me over there
'Cause I'm not a fan of pollution in the air
And petrol's expensive, too

I've been working on this all my life
Getting sweaty (SWEATY!) and it drips in my eyes
Been living off of burgers, choc-o-late and fries
Hope I get it finished soon!

I can't wait, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When am I gonna open up that door?
I'm buildin' (yes I'm) buildin', I'm a-buildin' up my
Though it's tricky (hard) keep on buildin', really buildin' up my
Buildin' (hard) I'm buildin' up my (hard) oh, I just cannot wait to
Teleport

Recently, I've had to stay up half the night
And my roommate he snores, God, I wanna punch his lights out
But I'm too busy working off my arse
To make sure that it all works just fine

Gonna need a new set of spanners soon
Flux capacitators, not as much of a boon as I thought
See that flashing? It could spell out doom
Or it could mean it's all right

Need more heat resistance on the tiles
Tired of the wires that go on for miles and miles
And I'm used to metric measurements, but all the time
The instructions measure in feet

And my undies keep riding up my butt
And I know that info is too much
But I'm gonna stick to my fanboy venture
Oh boy, I hope that smell's not me

I can't wait, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When am I gonna step through that big door?
I'm buildin' (yes I'm) buildin', I'm a-buildin' up my
Though it's tricky (hard) keep on buildin', really buildin' up my
Buildin' (hard) I'm buildin' up my (hard) oh, I just cannot wait to
Teleport
I'm buildin' (yes I'm) buildin', I'm a-buildin' up my
Though it's tricky (hard) keep on buildin', really buildin' up my
Buildin' (hard) I'm buildin' up my (hard) oh, I just cannot wait to
Teleport

Would you look at all these parts?
It's got fancy panels, lots of solder, velvet seats, old NES controllers
Things that zap you if you touch 'em, fingerprint scans (gotta love 'em)
Walkie-talkies, exposed wires, Sunkist bottles, whoops, a fire
Random widgets, tasteful pallet, inflatable safety tires
Flashing numbers, shock absorbers, some air holes might be in order
Deadly lasers for defence in case I somehow jump dimensions
Popcorn buckets, poker table, pole for stripping, random cables
Chocolate crackles, had to haggle so the bog may be disabled
Soundproof room for rumination, disco ball for boogie dancin'
Basket hoops 'n' myst'ry goop 'n' random stripes for decoration
Sammich maker, e-mail checker, budgeted out smoke detector
Distance gauges, lots of bacon carefully wrapped in newspaper
Touch-pad screen for easy flyin', first-aid kit in case of dyin'
Hairball hackings cause my cat is weird like that, but no-one's buyin'
Heatproof panels, coffee maker, engine core made of dark matter
Destination generator and a giant pile of toasters

I can't wait, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When am I gonna step through that big door?
I'm buildin' (yes I'm) buildin', I'm a-buildin' up my
Though it's tricky (hard) keep on buildin', really buildin' up my
Buildin' (hard) I'm buildin' up my (hard) oh, I just cannot wait to
Teleport
I'm buildin' (yes I'm) buildin', I'm a-buildin' up my
Though it's tricky (hard) keep on buildin', really buildin' up my
Buildin' (hard) I'm buildin' up my (hard) oh, I just cannot wait to
Teleport
I'm buildin' (yes I'm) buildin', I'm a-buildin' up my
Though it's tricky (hard) keep on buildin', really buildin' up my
Buildin' (hard) I'm buildin' up my (hard) oh, I just cannot wait to
Teleport
I'm building a teleporter, yet for some reason I'm including components from a famous fictional time machine. Then again, I'm soldering on about 30 toasters and leaving in the cat's hairballs cause no-one wants to buy him off me, so clearly I'm off my nut. Just like any good scientist!
