Song: Rock Opera

Lyrics:

One half step up Forrest

Yeah yeah
Ohh

This is the begining of the most beautiful rock opera ever written
Oh baby
On the east coast of Africa
I went to Africa last year
I learned about writing rock operas from a local
Who knew alot about writing rock operas because he was a local from Africa

He said things like
Gettaba shubba lalala malada
And diva la zhazhagovarr
Mocky bah sha sha rrrrakkayajayaya

And it was awful because I don't speak Swahili
Warrriga bada
The Dolphin's quarterback is AJ Feeley, that rhymes with Swahili
Ha jiggawaja

I went there for healing
Spoke Swahili
And I fell in love with a Pygmy
Football
Oh great times
But that has nothing to do with this rock opera

Rock opera AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Rock operaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Rock operaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Rock operaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I rode on a horse through the desert
I said I need some dessert
So I had myself a sundae and I gave my horsey some too
He said thank you

I'm your horse, hi
I'm gonna ride you
Give me some grass
Give me some grass and you can ride me all night
I mean day

Some grass for my horsey would be good
But the only way that I could get that grass
Was to travel around the world
I need some grass
And go to the sacred temple
Walk next to the fence and I
Reach my head through the holes
And eat the grass on the other side
Because I don't have any grass
But it was all booby trapped
I don't have any grass to eat
Booby trapped

You went all the way to Africa
To learn how to play a rock opera
But you can't even figure out how to work the part into the song
Where I get some grass
You fail, you Swahili
You you you haa

Frog legs
That's Swahili for I don't like you very much

I'm still a horse
I'm still sticking my head through the holes in the fence
Oh, I've got your grass right here
I need some grass but not in my food
And I'll smoke you with it
Ohhh
Or maybe you'll smoke it for me
I'm allergic to smoke
I'm allergic to horses heh

Here's your grass
Mumumu
Was it good?
It was poisoned
Oooohooooohoooooooohhohohohohooooohohohho
Fine I'm not giving anymore presents to you
I tricked you
I'm Phil's evil twin
But you don't look anything like Phil hehehehee
That's the point
That must be evil
So I poisoned his horse hahahahaa
And now his horse is dead
This is what a poisoned horse sounds like when it hops

I thought it sounded like this
Wee wee wee
Wee wee wee

So his horse is dead
And now he's got no ride through the desert
So he's stranded

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to get out of the rain
When you've been through the desert on a horse with no name
Woop woop woop woop woop woop woop woop woop woop

The band that sings that song also sings
Sister golden hair surprise
Sister golden hair surprise

Went to McDonald's ate at Wendy's
For the second time in a row
For the second time in a row
But this time they said
No more mustard for you
No more ketchup
No more Jew
You can't have none cause all you do is spill it

So in summary
We went to Africa
And learned a little bit about writing a rock opera
And here we come today
Presenting to you the listener
Our faithful horse contingency
Yes this is for you
This is our rock opera about a horse
About Africa
And about a lot of other things that are completely unrelated
And I hope that you enjoy yourself
For the remainder of this long long excrutiating process
Thank you and here's our closer
