The Lyrics

For World of Warcraft fans.... this is a Gnome's Anthem!
Is this a real life, is this just fantasy?
Don’t really care now ‘cause it sure beats reality
When you’re my size you look up to the skies to see
I’m just a shortarse, but I need no sympathy
Because for instant stealth, off I go
Grass is high, I’m down low
It hits me when the wind blows,
But that doesn’t matter to me, to me

Mama, just killed a man
Got a shot in his kidney, but I didn’t get xp
‘Cause Mama, he was level one
But a ten-foot Tauren never looks that way

Mama, oooh ooh-ooh-oooh
I had to jump real high
I should’ve let him be but just kept thinking
Cheap shot, slice and dice
‘Cause he doesn’t really matter

Don’t hate what I’ve become
‘Cause you just can’t dispute, everybody thinks I’m cute
Good thing that I’ve got it, this baby face
And I milk it all the time to tell the truth

Mama, oooh ooh-ooh-ooooh (love that little snub nose)
Gnome rogues they never die
They just use their Escape Artist and Vanish

I see a little warlock gnome who’s got an imp
Skaramoosh, Skaramoosh, wish that we could rename them!
Thunderbolts and lightning, little mage is frightening me!
Dancing baby! (Dancing baby!)
Dancing baby! (Dancing baby!)
See the Dancing Baby …
Oh - no it’s a gnome……!

I’m Engineering, nobody loves me
(He’s Engineering, lousy profession choice
Just for his bonus, how dumb can he be?)
Now my skill’s very high
Would you like to buy
Can’t use this gear! (No!)
I’m not an Engineer! (Buy his gear!)
Can’t use it, I’m not an Engineer (Buy his gear!)
Can’t use it (And we’re not Engineers!) (Buy his gear!)
All the Engineers (Have your gear!)
They can make that gear (Got that gear…. oh….oh..ohhhh!)
No no no no no no NO!

Oh mama mia, mama mia (You will never sell your gear!)
(Exploding sheep never really hit the spot for me, for me, for meeeeeee!!)

So I need a stepladder to spit in your eye
So I squeak like a sad baby mouse when I die
Oh, baby, I look just like a baby
But one with knives, Voidwalkers, Frostbolts and Fear

I’m a ruthless killer, anyone can see
But killers don’t come cuter
Killers don’t come cuter than me

Folks aren't too fond of us real-life engineers either.

I feel your pain, McKludge..... for I was once a software technician! This song probably doesn't mean a lot to anyone who's not a World of Warcraft player, so I am working on less geeky subjects for parody too. :^)

I have two sons who play that game so I basically knew what it was about during the read. Some lines were really good esp. last line in the song, but I think you used a bit too much of the OS. If you haven't done so, you may want to check out some of the better BR parodies on the site and get some idea of how to avoid using so much of the original. Pacing was worth a five - humor 4 to 5, I'll round up to 5. Overall I have to vote 4 because too much of the original song was in the parody. This is a good effort. I see potential. Keep writing and thanks for being out here with us today.
