The Lyrics

Parody of a song from Rush's 1982 "Signals" album. They are playing this song on their current Snakes & Arrows tour and it absolutely rawks live (saw them in Cincy on Sept 2).
(repeating parts like the chorus are shown only the first time they appear)

His world is high-tech aviation
A test pilot by vocation
Fell from spaces to air bases
Where the ground he crashed into

We'll fix this chap by operations --
Rudy, do some amputations
Add enhancers, by technomancers
And a wide-lapelled denim suit, too

He's got a partially titanium skeleton
He'd win first place in any triathlon
He has bionic legs to run on
In the fast lane of the autobahn

His body parts are all prosthetic --
Bionic eyed and cybernetic
He relies on the OSI's
Best guys to tune him up each day

He now works for our organization --
Secret agent occupation
'Cause for space rangers and body part changers
Constant danger's here to stay

He's got a lot of parts that were made in Japan
He owes six million bucks on an installment plan
He'll pay it all back just as fast as he can
But he needs a recharge --
He's a bionic man

DKTOS, but I really liked it...

A "Major" effort. Loved the "made in Japan" and "owes $6 Million". ... Many readers here give extra credit for coming up with new twists on each chorus, even if the original song just repeats choruses. No penalty now, as you're new here. 555, and welcome to AmIRight.
