The Lyrics

Part of a big series of parodies about the Tomb Raider series of games. This here parody tells a story of a big Tomb Raider fan who everyday shops at a small mini-mart style place and sees a woman who he believes looks more like Lara than any other previous flesh incarnation. He then begins to tell her but she initially just thinkshe's a geek. However, she hates her crap supermarket job and is more open-minded than she makes out.
Meatloaf: Every day I grab some money and I go down to the shop,
I got my broccoli and a beer, I got a drink, I need a choc bar,
You'll have them begging on their knees, c'mon and give the agency a phone,
Eidos doesn't live by Nell 'n Lucy too alone,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe.

Nell 'n Lucy too, Nell "n Lucy too,
They don't look anything like Lara when I compare 'em next to you,
Nell 'n Lucy too, Nell "n Lucy too,
I know that you as Lara could have a better job to do,
I don't know who you are or what you do, or where you go when you're not around,
I don't know anything about you baby, but you're everything Eidos dream of,
I don't know who you are, but you're a real dead ringer for Lara,
A real dead ringer for Lara.

Cher: Ever since I can remember you've been shopping 'round this joint,
You've been trying to look away but would you please get to the point?
I don't have to know your name and I won't tell you where to go,
But a girl she doesn't live too good on supermarket dough,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe.

Cher and Meatloaf: Nell 'n Lucy too, Nell 'n Lucy too,
They don't look anything like Lara when I compare 'em next to you,
Nell 'n Lucy too, Nell "n Lucy too,
I know that you as Lara could have a better job to do,
I don't know who you are or what you do, or where you go when you're not around,
I don't know anything about you baby, but you're everything Eidos dream of,
I don't know who you are, but you're a real dead ringer for Lara,
A real dead ringer for Lara.

Meatloaf: Ooh you got the kind of legs that could do that Ms. Croft walk,
Cher: I don't have to listen to your silly nerdy talk,
Meatloaf: Listen you got the kind of eyes on Lara that I see,
Cher: You got a lotta nerve to hold the shop queue up for me,
Meatloaf: You got the kind of lips to blow kisses with a wink,
Cher:Are there any other lines on which you can think?
But since I'm feeling strapped for cash and my defences are low,
Why don't we give it a shot and get it ready to go,
I'm looking for fame and money satisfaction,
I want to tell my manager I'll be missing in action,
Ever since I can remember I've been working 'round this joint,
Model agency never noticed, now they'll finally get the point,
Meatloaf: You'll have them beggin' on their knees, c'mon give the agency a phone,
Eidos doesn't live by Nell 'n Lucy too alone,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe,

Cher and Meatloaf: Nell 'n Lucy too, Nell "n Lucy too,
They don't look anything like Lara when I compare 'em next to you,
Nell 'n Lucy too, Nell "n Lucy too,
I know that you as Lara could have a better job to do,
I don't know who you are or what you do, or where you go when you're not around,
I don't know anything about you baby, but you're everything Eidos dream of,
I don't know who you are, but you're a real dead ringer for Lara,
A real dead ringer for Lara.

Dead ringer for Lara,
Dead ringer.
