The Lyrics

A song about my favorite anime. Apparently, the anime has had the editing scissors given to them via 4Kids because it was violent in Japan, and how they're replacing Sanji's cigarette with a lollipop and calling Roronoa Zoro "Zolo"
I want my...I want my old One Piece

Now look-a here, people, that's the way I've seen it
It's on the FoxBox at 9:30
That ain't workin' that's the way I've seen it
One Piece for nothin' at 9:30
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, 4Kids are dumb
Maybe feed a cookie to poor old "Zolo"
Maybe give a lolly to Sanji

(CHORUS)
They gotta cut out guns and violence,
replace rice balls with cookies
They gotta use these super soakers
They gotta do all this editing

I see Helmeppo with weird little hammer
Yeah buddy, it was a gun
That little idiot got his own jet airplane
That little idiot he's a spoiled old man
(CHORUS)

I shoulda learned to note the edits
I shoulda learned to note the cuts
Look at that Nami, she got it kickin' in the guys...
Man she could have some fun
And he's up there, who's that? Buggy the clown?
He's going ape mad like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way I've seen it
Watch your One Piece for nothin' at 9:30
(CHORUS)

Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
I've seen One Piece at 9:30
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
One Piece for nothin' on at 9:30
One Piece for nothin' at 9:30

I want my...I want my old One Piece
I want my...I want my old One Piece
(REPEAT UNTIL FADE)

I was WAITING for you to write a parody about One Piece! It's one of my favorite anime, too, and I also lament what 4Kids has done to it. Watch this Flash cartoon: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/11707485/

I've seen a few anime programs that I don't know the name of and they've been a bit violent...
