Parody Song Title:

"Transformers: Cybertron"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

This is about the toy-line, not the TV show, which is why Hardtop is there
There's battles in your future, lots of them, because
you're the leader of Autobots
Destroy Megatron before he takes control of all the
planet maps, you must make him die
Try to avoid having a fight with Starscream, except when you just have to
You need to kill that utter git, no matter what,
you have to make that prat fry
The look on your face will be priceless when you find
that no-one wants to overthrow that Megatron
Trade that foul mind with someone who needs it, then take a
bath, 'cause you're all washed up
You will never be a use for us - because you got
stuck in the sand trap
The Speed Planet's Cyber Planet Key is out of your
reach, but we've still got backup

That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron

Your partner Hot Shot will be broken once again by his
outstanding courage
Your main job of fixing his broken bits will only stop
when he beats that girl, Override
Your position in the Great Race says that you should spend your
cash on upgrades on your guns, of course
Try not to take the jump at Seti Alpha 5 when
with the leader you're tied
Now is not a good time to take a shortcut and trust the
tiny details to Crumplezone, oh no
Eat a bucket of loser-flavoured screwbolts and wash it
all down with a gallon of Energon Quik
Your sniper is extremely accurate and powerful-
oh, yes that's true
Expect a big surprise today, when you find your gun
has been exchanged for a crap stick

That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron

Now you may find it unbelievable or at the very least
a bit unlikely that the everyday vehicles that are driving
down the street could be an awesome, big, intelligent, fat
robot that tries it's very best to save the planet, but let
me give you my assurance that Autobts and
Decepticons are based on solid, photographic, document-
ed evidence, so you would have to be some kind of
moron not to realize that every single one of them are
somewhere out in space

Where was I?

Energon Towers are just around the corner just wait-
ing for someone to blow them up
Cybertron is about to go into a black hole that
is impossible to escape
Get ready for an unexpected trip when you blow
up in an enourmous fireball
Work a little bit harder on decreasing your
gigantic greed - and stay in shape
All your friends are lost on the Lost Planets...
save them
Cut down on the Internet, Jolt, and Six-Speed, Reverb
you've got to help him out
Megatron says that he needs thos keys and planet maps
really...but we know he's lying
If I were I'd join Optimus Prime's crew and always
always always always always give that Megs a clout

That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
That's the Transformers: Cybertron
please comment even if u don't know squat about Transformers

555, although I'm not a Transformer fan. I like it, good theme.

Well, that was a trip back to the 80s. I used to have several Transformer toys. Some even shot little hard plastic rockets and what not; they probably aren't made anymore like that. Dangerous toys rule.
bobpiecheese - November 13, 2005 - Report this comment
They are still made like that, with little rockets.

(SOTM) yeah, I remember transformers, although much of the detail is lost on me here - I don't know the Weird Al OS, but it's brave parodying a parody, conqueror, esp a Weird Al one!
Red Ant - December 11, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I have to say those aformentioned toys did infact have names, which unfortunately for the most part have been lost over time. But I thank you for the trip down memory lane with this parody. Good job here bobpiecheese.

(SOTM) I am commenting here even though I don't know squat about Transformers. This is similar to wannabemustangjockey's American Pie parody in this contest, a totally Geek-parody of a niche subject (not a back-handed compliment, by the way). The craft is the important thing here, and you pulled it off.

Not bad, I just don't like people parodying parodists... it's a pet peeve... but not bad - December 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Wow, and I thought wannabemustangjockey's SOTM entry had inside references. It's clear that you put a bunch of blood and sweat into this parody, conqueror. Weren't Transformers those toys that looked like, say, pretty butterflies, but then you'd flip a few parts around and they'd turn into Godzilla monsters that would actually consume the bare flesh of children and small women? Are they still around? If so, I know what I want for Christmas.
bobpiecheese - December 19, 2005 - Report this comment
They are still around Spaff, in fact, I'm getting six of the buggers for Christmas myself.
bobpiecheese - December 23, 2005 - Report this comment
By the way, Stuart and Matthias, the OS is not a parody. Weird Al does do originals. If you want to find the OS, it's the 8th track on Running With Scissors.
Adam Eccleshall - December 24, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I've not really looked at Transformers since the 80's toy lines, so I don't know any of the newer names, or what the current plots are about, but I enjoyed the references to the names I do know (even if they're not really the same charactes any more :-)). Good stuff :-)

I haven't heard the original in like two years and I can't find the original on the net (I don't own it because the latest W.A.Y albums haven't been sold in my country, not a censor thing, the general public here hasn't taken to his/this kind of humour yet). Anyway, the parody looks OK as far as I can tell from recollection of TOS, the subject is a bit to specific for SOTM IMHO and I predict you won't get too many votes because of that, but don't let that discourage you, a lot of us here have entered this parody writing hobby that way, as for me I started out by writing Star Trek filksongs in a niched sf-forum before I found this place (and went totally mental). ;-)

Have to admit that I know an awful lot more about transformers than I really want to (I have children of a certain age)... but that knowledge pales into insignificance next to what was needed to write this. I'm not sure whether to congratulate or commiserate with you, tCoP
bobpiecheese - December 27, 2005 - Report this comment
Peter: What does IMHO mean? Phil: What does commiserate mean?

SOTM - This is very good. Technology gone baaad...
Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd - December 29, 2005 - Report this comment
I can answer both those questions while I'm at it:
IMHO = In My Humble Opinion.
Commiserate = (according to my dictionary): sympathize, empathize, feel sorrow for, pity.
wannabemustangjockey - December 29, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I think the last Transformer I saw in stores was a Subaru WRX-based Autobot. That was about 2 years ago. Needless to say, I don't follow the TF craze, though one of my deviantART friends is TF-obsessed. Unfortunately I DKTOS but I can appreciate the work that went into this.

John Jenkins - December 30, 2005 - Report this comment
Clever job of working in research and humor, but it would have worked better if it had used a rhyme scheme like the OS.
2nz - January 02, 2006 - Report this comment
I agree with what Peter said about subject matter, but part of the reason for that is that this place is filled with OLD PEOPLE who don't watch anything classy like Transformers anymore... anyhow...

Wow, I had some serious doubts about any parody to this song, but you made it work, which is a great accomplishment. Nice use of the original and I especially liked the 'Energon Quik/crap stick' rhyme.
John Jenkins - January 02, 2006 - Report this comment
I just re-read, and it appears that my comment about the rhyming not matching TOS was in error. There was some very clever rhyming that somehow I missed. Sorry about that, conqueror.
Claude Prez - January 02, 2006 - Report this comment
I don't know squat about Transformers either. But this was well done.

Good job. I love Weird Al.
