The Lyrics

Model kits! They can be such a pain, especially just getting started...
Eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh, eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh, eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh

It's been a while since I have made
A model kit, somethin' nice and big, not floppy
Wonder why I stopped? What was the pain
That made me forgo my once-relaxin' hobby?
So I went through ev'ry nerd website
To find a kit of a decent size
Now it's here, tear it open wide
And now my brain goes "Oh"

Final neuron pops in place to recall
Why I had chosen to be free
Of this specific kind of collectable
It's the first step on the sheet:
Snip from the sprue, snip from the sprue
First thing one must do, snip from the sprue

These plastic frames will drive me insane
Free from the mold will take a whole lot of hurtin'
Those clipper things or the knife today?
Either way, always some excess flash, concernin'
'Cause I never get it to look right
A lumpy mess, never trim and tight
Robot or human, it's so shite
And then I slip, blood flows

All those people online who fill their walls
With each damn one a perfect piece
Make me feel like my efforts are mis'rable
Can't get step one right, you see
Snip from the sprue, snip from the sprue
Got tips? I've no clue, snip from the sprue

I don't even want to know
How bad the paint would be goin'
All my bad snips would show
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh, eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh, eeh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Ev'ry model project of mine gets stalled
Been left in stasis, incomplete
Sure one day my skills will get formidable (-midable)
But 'til then, I'll sit and bleed
Snip from the sprue (snip from the sprue), snip from the sprue
Frame looks nice, it's true (snip from the sprue), snip from the sprue

I'll be honest, I've only made one model kit...I think. Maybe two? There was a Perfect Cell and a skeleton, but neither involved sprues and painting, just the bits I had to peg together (for Cell) or get Dad to solder (for the skelly-boy). The whole sprue-snipping thing is one of the main things stopping me from getting into model kits, though, so the parody does have some basis in my reality.
