Lyrics to The Whedonverse


As requested, here are the lyrics to the song I performed at Whedonesque Burlesque 2012:

The Whedonverse
(to the tune of Billy Joel's The Piano Man)

It's eight o'clock on a Tuesday
The popcorn is read to go
There's my girlfriend sitting next to me
We’re watchin’ our favourite show

She says, "Buffy will outsmart this Prophecy
‘Cause to kill her would just go too far
And her hair is a mess, but I still love her dress
Ooo, I hope someone knows CPR."

La la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Chorus:
Welcome, you guys, to the Whedonverse
Welcome and have some pie
Well we're all in the thrall of this Writer Man
Who reminds us we’re all gonna die

Now Wash here, he pilots the Firefly
He’s a funny man and he’s my friend
And he's quick with a jest, but a pole to the chest
Sort of pinned down this Leaf on the Wind

And Fred in the lab, she’s a scientist
She outsmarts us all on her worst day
But the world has a hole and a god ate her soul
And she doesn’t know why she can’t stay

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

And though we often beat the Apocolypse
We can’t help you when someone just dies
And there’s nothing to hold when The Body’s gone cold
Joyce is gone now, so please close her eyes

Chorus:
Come on you guys it’s the Whedonverse
Come on, you knew you might cry
‘Cause we're all in the thrall of this Writer Man
Who reminds us we’re all gonna die

BRIDGE (Matrix-style piano rotation)

Now Topher’s a genius computer geek
Who blows up to save you and me.
He’s remembering Penny, whose virtues were many
Who got cut down by flying debris

As a slayer our Buffy’s unusual
And she never would listen to Giles
Because death is her gift, she jumped into the rift
To forget about life for a while

And if it helps the Avengers assemble
I’ll kill off an Agent or three
And I might’ve killed Dan, when I wrote for Roseanne
And there’s no one here who can stop me

Oh, lie die die, die die die
Die die, die die die, Die DIE

Chorus:
Good bye to all from the WhedonVerse
Goodbye y’all, here’s why
‘Cause the old gods did not get their sacrifice
So I’m afraid that you all have to die
