The Lyrics

This is the longer song to the longer game: Pikmin 2. Enjoy!
Oh, still not long ago
On the Planet Hocotate
There was a guy named Olimar
He came back from his unsafe trip
To tell how he rebuilt his ship
And maybe also get some R & R.
His company was in dismay
They had a huge debt to repay
Thanks to one employee
The ever-famished Louie
They learned that money could be found
On that strange planet with no background
(When) They went there, Louie hit the ground
And then unearthed this thing.

And he was thinking…
Ack! Gack! That thing better stay back!
I just got here and now I fear I am under attack
Did Olimar say that thing’s called a Pikmin? It’s whack!
However, maybe it could make a nice snack.
Maybe it could make a nice snack.

Both Olimar and Louie
Needed to make a well-built army
And bring its number to twenty
They needed stuff to make some cash
And both discovered in a flash
That right nearby there was a giant battery.

Well, The Dolphin was sold from the slip
and so now they had a talking ship
it told them what to do
oh but they both already knew

They needed to pay off their credit fast
But it didn’t matter how much time that passed
And even though the debt was vast
The Pikmin would not fail

And they were thinking
My, my Mr. Olimar Guy
You departed and we started
losing Pikmin thereby.
Yet somehow we have managed to just barely scrape by
But we know soon you’ll get our numbers up high
You’ll soon get our numbers up high

Now they thought they’d take a little stroll
And came upon a strange foreboding hole
And they knew treasure was inside.
Well the enemies were not menacing
and they found a globe that made the ship pod ting
But it was too heavy to carry

Oh, and then they thought they’d just give in
and they headed for the exit when
They found a purple bloom
Inside the final room.
and at first the captains were confused
Then the ship revealed how they were used
And none of the Pikmin refused
When thrown into the bud

and they were thinking
I, spy, Mr. Olimar Guy
that this flower has the power
To change our color dye
It makes us kinda bulky and we are not as spry.
But now we hammer when thrown at a bad guy
slaughter when thrown at a bad guy

Off from winter straight to spring
To find more riches and money to bring.
and save the President from harm.
The Empress Bulblax was foul.
The captains continued on the prowl
And they swore that from that plant they heard a growl

Now they had some poison to get through
And they had no method that they knew
They found another rift
Oh, and it proved to be a gift
'cause the bloom they found was fabulous
It made Pikmin that were poisonous
And also their quick speed was plus
The new types were conserved.

The ship was thinking
Fly! Fly! Get up into the sky!
‘Cause its night and you need height
or else you’ll certainly die
You need to hurry or the President’s gonna fry
And when we’re done I wonder what we can buy
Wow, I wonder what we can buy

Oh, they reclaimed the yellow and blue
The debt was far past overdue
The President was on the lam.
So they rushed: got the Tear Stone, got The Key.
Gatling Groink shot in sets of three.
Bumbling Snitchbugs go for leaders instead.

Oh, the bosses that they fought were hard
The Raging Long Legs was on guard
The Emperor lost his force
(Then) the Waterwraith, of course.
then the Bulbmin were immune to all
and they assisted in the brawl
And helped those trickier bosses fall
The debt was soon repayed.

Pikmin were thinking
"Hi, hi, unnamed President Guy
now your debt is paid and you’re afraid
That Louie has died
Just search for some more stuff and wait for him to reply
Until then work on some new plans to apply.
work on some new plans to apply

They soon arrived at the Wistful stage
And the treasure here was off the gauge
But danger was 10 times as bad
They finally found the last few caves
Tons of enemies fought in waves.
Mini-bosses to be found on every floor.

And through the Den, the Blowhogs lurked
the Bulbears roamed, and the Breadbug worked
But not one boss to be seen
They’d never reach floor fourteen.
And the Titan Dweevil was a threat
Had captured Louie and caused a fret
His treasures would have solved their debt
Oh well, at least it’s done

Pikmin were thinking
Sigh, sigh Mr. Olimar Guy
Now you’re leaving and we’re grieving
Cause we’re saying good-bye
Take one more look so we can light up the sky
But we just hope that we survive and get by
we hope we survive and get by

Pikmin were thinking
"Bye-Bye, Mr. Olimar Guy"
We just hope that we can cope
for your send-off we decry
Remember if you need us we will always comply
But, when you come back make sure you bring Wi-Fi.

Thank you ever, ever so much for submitting this parody. I so love the game, Pikimin 2. Funny you should ever mention it, but when I played the game, I actually thought about the OS and I loved the way you associated it with that game. Not only that, I also love how the game play is being explained in that song. It's also hilarious. Keep up the good work Bluetooth! Final score: 555!

I know this song too well. Excellent work Bluetooth. Some areas where rhyming could use some slight polish, but nothing that deters me from giving you 5s across. I know this song has been done many times before on the site, but this should get more attention and recognition.
