The Lyrics

And with the curveball from left field, it's INDIANA JONES and the entry into the Skyhooks parody contest!
Hello there Henry
Life’s more than it seems
Hot fights and cool girls
Welcome to your dream

Aaah
Aaah
Aaah
Aaah

Worn fedora, .45 on his hip
His name’s Indianna, don't you mess with his whip
Tablet says “the treasure is a…red vest”?!
Not the right translation? Well, I…shoulda guessed

Written in cuneiform! Language…that looks so old
Written in cuneiform, and oooh…this tablet’s worn

Searching for the treasure back in 1947
Surely, this says “this is the door to heaven”
Looking up the words, trying to see what he could see
He leaned over and said ‘snakes are not for me’

Leather jacket and brown leather boots
Egyptian hieroglyphics make him say ‘aw shoot!’
He spoke the words and he phrased it right
Trapdoor opens up and he falls from sight….

Written in cuneiform! Language…that looks so old
Written in cuneiform, and oooh…this tablet’s worn
Written in cuneiform! Written in cuneiform!
Written in cuneiform! Written in cuneiform!

Treasure dig, near the Sudanese border
Sallah says, “Indy! Reverse the order!”
One bird symbol and a…half sun
Temple fin’lly opened! He’s found the one!

Written in cuneiform! Language…that looks so old
Written in cuneiform, and oooh…this tablet’s worn
Written in cuneiform! Written in cuneiform!
Written in cuneiform! Written in cuneiform!

Indy fin’lly hit the right button, made his grand entry
A big gap and a trap or two, moved right through with ease
Whipped a branch from an ancient tree, then he swung across
But he misread the cuneiform. Now he’s REALLY lost…

Aaah
Aaah
Aaah
Aaah

Written in cuneiform! Language…that looks so old
Written in cuneiform, and oooh…this tablet’s worn
Written in cuneiform! Ancient numbers, too!
Written in cuneiform! What’s a guy to do?

Written in cuneiform! Written in cuneiform!
Written in cuneiform! Written in cuneiform!

Written in cuneiform! Ancient numbers, too!
Written in cuneiform! What’s a guy to do?





I'm just glad it wasn't snakes. *hiiiiiisssssss* Oh sh*t...

(Artistry) You should have included this link: http://www.upennmuseum.com/cuneiform.cgi. Well written and paced. I would have liked a little variety among the 24 repeats of "Written in cuneiform" but like Agrimorfee with his Cheetos parody I know you were following the OS.

(Artistry) I know I am a champion of the "no repeat" mantra, but with these hooky Skyhooks songs, I find it ok to leave it be. This was downright clever and perfectly paced, Sync, putting a different spin on the IJ legend!

(Artistry) wow, you had me at the title-sub, Syncronos, and this is my favourite Skyhooks song, so I was keen to see what you did with it - it's perfect - it's such a close match, I can hear them singing it and the subject matter is inspired - 555

(Artistry) Original song makes me think of "Express Yourself" by Madonna. Awesome job on the parody, I haven't seen Indiana Jones since I was a little kid, so this brought back some memories. In honesty. . .this may be the best one I've read by you.
