The Lyrics

Crazy kinda treasure hunt
Pulling off some intense stunts
Make sure to pack bulletproof vests
Try to dodge those swords


Once I was a sexy college professor
Now I’m working as a trophy collector
“That belongs in a museum”
You will hear me cry

The people I bring are cute gals and Short Round
Like that one hottie who hammers the port down
“Come save me, Mommy!” I’ll be screaming
When I spot a snake

Crazy kinda treasure hunt
Arrows stab you in the butt
Learn to sneak past booby traps
Or you’ll be a corpse

This tomb raiding is for more than big-boobed chicks
Laura Croft would be screwed if in my fix
If she had to put up with my dad… Who
Said I was named after the dog

Deciphering is my hidden devotion
Hieroglyphics or written in Laotian
I would rock at Wheel of Fortune
If they had it in ‘48

Crazy kind of treasure hunt
Crack that whip and shoot that gun
In this fedora I’m dressed
Grab it under walls

Fought that nerd! Who has captured the Lost Ark
Then I fought! Creep cults who like pull out hearts
The crystal skull was so confusing…
Thought aliens were untrue

Crazy kind of treasure hunt
Fighting Nazis by the ton
Won that holy gold filled chest
For no price?! (Must be high good Lord!)

Was this part of your "Rock Band" project? had trouble getting anything good on YouTube, so I gave you an auto 5 for pacing (you are usually 99% so hey--I'll assume this one is perfect to). Kind of a crazy little parody you've got here, no pun intended, funny--little trouble following parts of it though. . .overall pretty good

You have to be a big fan of the Indiana Jones movies to get a lot of the jokes, I'll admit. Thanks for reading guys!

Very funny start, waned a tad in the middle, but held its own quite well! I liked that the subject matter sneaked up on me! 5-5-5 and a rare artifact!

(Ages2) I haven't seen a single Indy film, but I did manage to get most of the references! Could've used a bit more of the funnies, but otherwise still pretty good!

AGES...I'm a big fan of Indiana Jones, Matty...and this had lots of smiles for me! I think Indy and Laura would make a super team, though!

This made me think of...
Raiders of the Lost Ark
National Treasure
The Da Vinci Code
and many more...
Not that they are in any way similar...Great Job!

I've seen a lot of Indi films, what does that have to do with adventure? :) Just kidding, love Indy, and you did a great job with this OS.

Well, see above:)

Hit on several different movies, most notably the ones IB mentioned. Well done here, especially liked 'devotion/laotian'. Also, I agree with the south park episode: Why'd they have to go and make 'crystal skull'.
