The Lyrics

This is a crosspost with FFN. I apologize to all Squirtle fans before hand, but nothing fit well. Now, for a song parody about Satoshi(Or ash, depending on whether you prefer dub or sub) and his habit of leaving his pokemon.
I'm gonna leave the very best, Pidgeot's gone because
The Pidgey flock it must protect, from Fearow's deadly claws.
I have traveled Orange Islands, with Lapras by my side
Strong Pokemon I just can't stand, so Lapras took a dive.
Pokemon! My Butterfree
Went to meet it's destiny
Though, it's my good friend, it got laid and met it's end.
Pokemon! It's power grew
So I tried to leave Pikachu
Tried to flee, but our bond held true
Gotta leave 'em all, Gotta leave 'em all, Pokemon!

Every challenge along the way, with Charizard I faced
It would battle, every day, then fire blast my face
But for love, it had to fight, it went and left my team
Comes back sometimes to show it's might, other Pokemon it creams,
Gotta leave 'em all, Gotta leave 'em all, Pokemon!

Ash is an idiot. He's caught like 50 of those things and I swear he's let about 30 go.

I thought this was pretty good. I look upon 'Pokemon' as a mere trend over which the whole world had been crazy for a time but in retrospect it is no worse than 'South Park.'

to To A Lesser Extent: no, you're wrong. Ash caught about 50 and let about 43 go...
