The Lyrics

This one is for Peter Anderson's One Week Notice challenge (Week 28) this time hosted once again by Agrimorfee! Tribute to my favorite film series of all time "Back to the Future"!!!
Here... In Hill Valley...
Doc Brown has made... A time machine...
Bomb... Has been replaced
With pinball parts, Enraged here come the criminals
Those Libyans have smoked you, Guess it’s time... to... leave!

Nooooow... My mother’s dateable
And I’m erasable
Connect the dots!

Geeeeeeeorge... My dad is gullible
Peeping Tom’s clubbable
Checked out mom’s parts

Damn, I’m stuck in a bind!
Hope Darth Vader saves my hide!
Tell her that: “You are my Density”
Hope my pop gets to smash
Though Biff Tannen kicks his ass
His butt...head... en-e-my...


Hoooooope... Lightning is tamable!
That strike’s predictable!
Need Jiggawatts!

Thaaaaaat... Clock Tower’s shockable
The past’s unsuitable
“Great Scott!” you snarled
Not a scam!

What the hell’s a Jiggawatt?!

A Jiggawatt?!?!

Paaaaaar-rents need to breed
I’m blurred, You see... Marvin Barry?!
“Eaaaaarth Angel” we plaaaaayed
It won’t Johnny B Goode if you don’t multiply
Loraine, I’ll never bone you, That’s disturbing me!

Doc’s being friiiiiiied after his cliiiiiiimb
To go forward in time so we can build a whole franchise
Watch out for guuuuuuuns, Don’t roll your eyyyyyes
Letter I penned so you can deter your demiiiiiiiise!

Skaaaaaaaate... Boarding’s inventible
My death’s preventable
With Jiggawatts!

Hoooooope... George is persuadable
He’s confrontational
Go bang my mom!

What the Hell’s a Jiggawatt?!?! [x8]

What the Hell’s a Jiggawatt?!?!
What the Hell’s a Jiggawatt?!?!
Need 1.21 Jiggawatts!!!

Eiiiiiiighty-Eight is traceable
So I’m escapable
With Jiggawatts!

Fluuuuuuux Capacitor’s no bull
Time travel’s provable
A pair of Docs!

What the Hell’s a Jiggawatt?!?!

What the Hell’s a Jiggawatt?!?! [x4]

^ thanks, mate, I didn't think it was spelled that way either. Otherwise, this is good with all the movie refs! Fives!

OMG! Not even my parody of this song had a line like "Go bang my mom!"

And I wonder if we'll get to see that particular Delorean in Ready Player One when that comes (The RPO book is totally awesome - in case anyone wonders).

Great Scott!

Doc Brown is a scientist, so the Gigawatt deliberate misspelling is bad news. Ruined the fun for me. Btw, if BTTF 4 ever gets made, Delorean has a new model DMC 15. If you even care.

@ Concerned: Please think logically here; if you're in a situation (even as a movie character) where you have to ask what a jiggawatt/gigawatt is - then you obviously don't know the spelling for sure either.

Now go read some lyrics by bands like Slade or artists like Prince until you get the point of alternative spelling as a point for its own sake.

Did you heard about the swedish abortion clinic? - They have a one year waiting list!
Matthias - March 18, 2018 - Report this comment
@Concerned: Doc Brown knew what a Gigawatt was of course. The line “What the Hell is a Jiggawatt?!” is uttered by Marty McFly who is a high school slacker so he doesn’t know what that is.
