The Lyrics

Don't expect to understand this parody if you've never played Mega Man X4. The song is about Zero's girlfriend Iris, and what happens to the two after she goes maverick. The song is sung from Zero's perspective. Also, there may be a few spoilers for those who intend to play it. Anyway, enjoy!
...And I waited forever to find you
When you were in danger, I'd never slack...
So surprised when I knew, that when the city fell through,
That your brother had led the attack...

...And all I could think was your beauty
Why would you something so profane?
And sooner or later it hit me...
"Oh, my goodness, my girlfriend's insane!"

...And I don't want the hunters to see me...
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand...
All this time I was dating a maverick,
but I don't wanna let go of your hand...

I remember the day that you lost it...
He who murdered your brother, was I...
But you wanted revenge, tried to kill me,
Yet it turned out I caused you to die...

And I don't want my friend X to see me...
'Cause I don't think that he'd understand...
That I'm crying 'cause I killed my girlfriend,
And I did so to save the all of man...

[Musical solo]

...And I sure don't want Sigma to see me...
Cause he'll know that he's runed my life...
I'd rather just sit with what's left of you...
And cry out in the grief and the strife,

And I don't want my friend X to see me...
'Cause I know he would not understand...
That though I saved the wold 'cause I killed her...
Still I wail 'cause she was my girlfriend...

...You don't get it, she was my girlfriend...

...And I just wanted to hold her hand...

...And her to squeeze back when I hold her hand...
*Sniff* *sniff* So sad... :(

Zero is so romantic with this poesy. I'm sad with Iris's death. She dead very sad and Zero hugged Iris into his arms. The couple have the very sad end
