The Lyrics

Yeah, its of the game, not the creatures . . . as real Lemmings are incapable of internal exploding on cue. . .I'm at badave.com.

You don't really have to know the game to imagine what happens. You instruct the characters what to do, if you don't they just keep walking forward til they either run into something causing them to turn around, or they die. . .that's really the basis. They walk until they can't walk, so you have to save them from suicide.
Dig Guys
We’re lemmings
We just walk like we are fools
We’re building, building
We do whatever you tell us to

Blocker fools block us now
Click bomber and we’ll go POW
But then we’ll drown in water too
'Cos every hole we seen ain’t nice
Cause our lifes we sacrifice
Lemmings man this game is cruel

We're Lemmings
Yeah we be falling to our death so damn fast
Ain’t jumping
Hey whats this hole here, my life just passed

Now we won’t just turn around
When a fire is near our scalp
You need to save us somehow
Are brains may be quite slight
Yes we splatter from da heights
Our lives are worth some points you know

We're walking, mining, building, floating
Yes We're Lemmings with green hair on dope
We're Digging, Bombing, falling, bashing
We're Lemmings frustrating you all

Save Us
Oh No there’s fire
OH NO THERE’S FIRE
I Burneth from the fire
Now I am flaming

Yeah, we're, we’re Lemmings, oog-a-hah (Do as we are told)
We’re Lemmings, boo-da-wah
I will be following you
We're burning, blocking, flailing, dying
I'm damned, Look like ‘Nerds’ yeah its true

Just saw my friend die
But I still follow behind
I never do ask why
Some times players can’t resist
Us dying puts them in bliss
oh But we do not mind

(Insane outro of random uses of the word Lemmings with lots of sound effects from the game)

There's a game called Lemmings? I think I would have understood this a little better if it was about the actual creatures because I thought I was at least sort of well-versed in video games and I had no idea that this was a game. What system is it for? Is it new or is it old? Is an iPhone app like Angry Birds? I have no idea what "Lemmings" is... Sorry Dave!

Fun subject, the game sounds like fun, too! Although "Space Invaders" is more my speed.

Lol: "I Burneth from the fire", that's a great line. I would be interested to see a real lemming spontaneously combust. Well, not really. You know what I mean!

I cracked up thru the burning stanza... my favorite part. Dunno the game but exploding lemmings sounds pretty funny - maybe need a microwave? (Or Monty Python)

Matthias: here ya go; everything you ever wanted to know about real lemmings, but were afraid to ask:

Wow, the memories...I have actually played this game (I may actually have an old copy around somewhere). Matthias, you can try out the game here: http://www.elizium.nu/scripts/lemmings/.

Thank goodness for the point of reference about a video game , otherwise I wouldnt have got any of it. At least you were creative enough to replace the chanted title sub with a variety of gerunds.

(Artistry) Holy crap, I remember this game! I think I tried playing it once at my cousin's house, and I failed due to a lack of instructions. Great parody, 555!
