The Lyrics

This isn't exactly a parody, but it is a birthday wish to Neil Innes, who turns 63 on December 9, 2007. (Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Monty Python, Innes Book of Records)
Neil Innes’ 63rd Birthday Parody Song
Sung to “Slaves of Freedom”


Intro

Verse 1

Innes fans, come on unite—We are the Ego Warriors!
Really we don’t want to fight—We are the Ego Warriors!
All we want to do is play—We are the Ego Warriors!
A song for Neil on his birthday—We are the Ego Warriors!

Chorus 1

Neil’s age is up there but we love him all the same
We think he writes great music and we all revere his name
We hope he’ll never leave us, all other songs are lame
We all want to go back in time for things to be the same—oh yeah!

Musical interlude

Verse 2

Neil is such a funny man—We are the Ego Warriors!
He likes to play with funny bands—We are the Ego Warriors!
If we did thing like his way—We are the Ego Warriors!
An instrument we all should play—We are the Ego Warriors!

Chorus 2

Neil would really love it if he could replace his hair
The bright sun reflects off his head and causes a great glare
His head is like a watermelon* with smoothness and sheen**
If someone took a snap of him, it would be rudely mean—oh yeah!

Musical Interlude

Verse 3

We wish Neil a happy day—We are the Ego Warriors!
In your songs don’t use the word “gay”*--We are the Ego Warriors!
Cause we all must speak PC***--We are the Ego Warriors!
Want no trouble with the BBC—We are the Ego Warriors!

Chorus 3

We all hope you have another 63 years
And we’re sure if we don’t we all will come to tears
We’d like for you to stick around and have a few more beers
So we can all congratulate you and give you 3 big cheers—oh yeah!


Hip, Hip, Hurray!
Hip, Hip, Hurray!
Hip, Hip, Hurray!

*I think Going to Bring a Watermelon to My Girl Tonight
**Mr. Sheene and His Driving Machine
***Politically Correct, Neil once said in an interview that he didn’t know the word was used as meaning homosexual or that the word would be used later with that meaning.
