The Lyrics

A sad tale of game mod addiction...
A habit I ha-ave with PC games
I can't leave them as is, no way
Cause I love fan-made modifications, dude, ooh-ooh
From bug patches to stuff really off all the wa-alls
Screw with skin tones, no-ow ev'ryone's green
A homebrew spell that hurls lots of cheese
Swap Skyrim dragons with Macho Man and their shouts with "Oh yeah!"s
I swear some modders are really quite high as ba-alls

But just look at the slowdo-o-own
What was once a breezy pa-a-ace
Is slow as a snai-ail that woke up ea-ea-early
It's a rea-eal lethargic sta-ate
Ooh, just look at the slowdo-o-o-own
There's lag and then there's this, ma-a-ate
Know I shouldn't ha-ave all these near ten thousand mo-ods
It's a ha-abit I can't brea-ea-eak

I know I should trim my-y huge mod list down
Leave the bug patch ones alive
Character creation boosters too, should be obvious why-y-y
I've gone down this path before, always kept them a-all

So I'm stuck with the slowdo-o-o-own
Hard to punch things in the fa-a-ace
When the new crisp te-extures slow things hu-u-ugely
I downloa-oaded this new ma-ace
It just adds to the slowdo-o-own
One sma-all quest takes a whole da-a-ay
Wish I could stop, dude, an addiction, true
Ev'ryo-one needs an new fa-ace
I just slog through the slowdo-o-o-own
One ga-a-ame can take the whole yea-ea-ear
Could just not play on PC where I can't use mo-ods
Who needs sense when playing ga-a-ames?

I'll deal with the slowdo-o-o-own

This is not a fun song to try and parody when you only woke up at 10 and you're only on two coffees. And the Macho Man Skyrim mod is a real thing, as well as one that replaces the dragons with Thomas the Tank Engine trains. Because duh.

"Against All Odds" is a shining example of why '80s music was awesome! you get 5's just for song choice alone!
