La da deedle la da dum, la da deedle la da dum La da do rye diddly aye-ay! La da deedle la da dum, la da deedle la da dum La da do rye diddly aye-ay! The grass may grow and the waters flow But we don't go out for days 'Cause I've got enough of the fine old stuff That fuels me day to day Come gamers all, from Duty's Call Skyrim and Halo too Give noobs the slip and we'll take a sip Of the rare old Mtn Dew La da deedle la da dum, la da deedle la da dum La da do rye diddly aye-ay! La da deedle la da dum, la da deedle la da dum La da do rye diddly aye-ay! There's a magic place in this meat space Where the lag spikes are profound But we frag and slay both night and day And the head shots do abound So my car I pack with games and snacks A combo tried and true To the LAN I roll with a Cheetos bowl And a bucket full of Mtn Dew Now the uber-leet who use Teamspeak Your praises have relayed You sweet caffeine in glowing green From orange and sugar made Throw out that speed, this is all you need Even if you whine Q Q Stay up all night 'til the morning's light With the rare old Mountain Dew La da deedle la da dum, la da deedle la da dum La da do rye diddly aye-ay! La da deedle la da dum, la da deedle la da dum La da do rye diddly aye-ay! Mountain Dew all night and day!

She was a DnD Cowgirl with a loaded D-20 Auburn hair like a shiny new penny She stole my core books, heart, and my favorite pen And I know I'm never gonna get 'em back again Wandering 'round the game floor, I wasn't looking to score Saw her by the registrar To resist I wasn't able so I signed up for a table Faster than I ever had before She was a DnD Cowgirl with a loaded D-20 Auburn hair like a shiny new penny She stole my core books, heart, and my favorite pen And I know I'm never gonna get 'em back again With her bonus to charisma and her smile and enigma Well, the game didn't go as planned She wasn't a straight shooter but we just couldn't boot her It was the most fun we'd ever had She was a DnD Cowgirl with a loaded D-20 Auburn hair like a shiny new penny She stole my core books, heart, and my favorite pen And I know I'm never gonna get 'em back again We went back to my place, I showed her my new book case Full of game books galore I went out for some Cheetos and I guess you know how this goes She was already out the door She was a DnD Cowgirl with a loaded D-20 Auburn hair like a shiny new penny She stole my core books, heart, and my favorite pen And I know I'm never gonna get 'em back again

We don't keep track of money or know where our gear is stored We don't keep up with backstories or read a word of lore We just loose the fateful lightning of our fracking magic swords We slaughter all night long Glory, glory Murder Hobos Glory, glory Murder Hobos Glory, glory Murder Hobos Roll initiative We're stealing sacred objects from indigenous peoples We're checking every trunk and barrel for shiny baubles Genocide's a useful tool for all minor squabbles We slaughter all night long Glory, glory Murder Hobos Glory, glory Murder Hobos Glory, glory Murder Hobos Roll initiative Now we're so high level that we've gotten too OP The only beings we've yet to kill are all the deities We'll don their sacred vestments and then laugh at all the plebes We slaughter all night long Glory, glory Murder Hobos Glory, glory Murder Hobos Glory, glory Murder Hobos Roll initiative

I want to be a Link to your Zelda I want to guide you through Gannon's keep I want to help you unlock your power If you look then I will leap Remember we grew up together Just two kids with skinned knees But rainy days were my favorite When we'd game for an hour or three After school you'd come over And we'd turn on the 64 We shared a single save file And that was when I swore I want to be a Link to your Zelda I want to guide you through Gannon's keep I want to help you unlock your power If you look then I will leap When I left for college I stuttered to tell you That you were all I wanted But I just couldn't follow through Letters turned to emails There were consoles come and gone We drifted ever farther 'cause That Song of Time Plays on I want to be a Link to your Zelda I want to guide you through Gannon's keep I want to help you unlock your power If you look then I will leap The 64 is generations old And co-op is all online But I can't forget the glowing of a CRT TV Reflected in your eyes I moved home and you moved in And 20 years down the line We're still gaming on a couch together Just like those rainy times So let me say what I didn't then 'Cause now I know it's true You're the hero of my story And I'm in love with you I want to be a Link to your Zelda I want to guide you through Gannon's keep I want to help you unlock your power If you look then I will leap

I am a plumber, and Italian plumber I loved a Princess and Peach was her name But she would not ride my "100 point flag pole" So a Mushroom I must obtain Mushroom, Mushroom, oh Super Mushroom Mushroom, Mushroom that makes you grow! How I want a Super Mushroom So I'll have something to show I piped down to the Mushroom Kingdom A Super Mushroom I chanced to smell I punch a block and I ate that Mushroom And my... pride began to swell Mushroom, Mushroom, oh Super Mushroom Mushroom, Mushroom that makes you grow! How I want a Super Mushroom So I'll have something to show I fought my way through death and danger I fought my way to Bowser's abode But the Princess was in another castle So I had to settle for single-player mode Mushroom, Mushroom, oh Super Mushroom Mushroom, Mushroom that makes you grow! How I want a Super Mushroom So I'll have something to show

about
