Flight of the Conchords give us a few laughs Can't Post

This is kind of long, but I guarantee it's worth it. Flight of the Conchords doing their bit to help raise funds for CureKids.
You really need to watch the children in conversation with Bret and Jemaine, because this is how they came up with the lyrics.

Enjoy.

Laugh

Give the kids some feta [In reply to] Can't Post

to make them feel betta... Cool
I love it when they are trying so hard not to laugh at the lovely things the children say. The money system the kids come up with is just about as mad as the reality of world monetary systems!

Jemaine looks very dodgy with that mo! [In reply to] Can't Post

Such a fun song. :)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Here are the lyrics - or as as much as I could get. Corrections please. [In reply to] Can't Post

 
Feel Inside (and stuff like that)

by The Conchords and The Kids

Whooooa. Whoooooa. Eeeeew. Whooooa. Whoooooa.
There are children who are so unwell
They have to live their lives in hospital.
They're feeling lospital, mmmmospital.

Children gettin' sicker
Drinkin' too much bubble mixture.
They all just wanna be bubbles.
They all just wanna be bubbles.

There must be something we can do
To stop these kids from doin' spew.

Chorus:

Feel inside (and stuff like that).
Open up the lids.
Help-a help-a help-a the kids.

[Repeat]

Kids need us to come together.
We can make them better.
We can get them some feta.
Can raffle scooters, cars and movie vouchers.
John, stop blowin' all the money on couches!

We need a million and a hundred ten and twenty-one dollars.
We need to build a trap so we can catch all the robbers,
And we'll take their money.
We'll rob the robbers,
So we can fill a house, fill a house full of dollars.

We'll go to people's homes and ask to borrow some money.
They'll probably all just give us some money.
We'll give em back less money and cause a confusion.
That's the solution, yeah, that's the collusion.

Chorus:

Feel inside (and stuff like that)
Open up the lids.
Help-a help-a help-a the kids.

Feel inside. Feel inside.
Open up the lids.
Help-a help-a help-a the kids.


Banks got the money
The money they get it from the Prime Minister.
Prime Minister gets it from the Queen.
The Queen gets the money from the bank who gets it from the Prime Minister.
The craziest financial system I've ever seen.

The kids that are sick can't do hip hop anymore.
Their tummies, their tummies could be very sore.
We've gotta dig for some more.
Get some crystals and gold.
Collecting for the Tooth Fairy
You put em in a bowl.
In a bowl. In a bowl.
In a bowl. In a bowl.
In a bowl. In a bowl.
A giant bowl. In a giant bowl.

[The next five lines I don't quite get. Can anybody else figure them out and edit this? Eh, Ataaua?Heart]

Stop___________ about yourself
_____________________up off the shelf.
Oh no, that ___was not there any more.
[I know late night(?)] come knock on my door.

[We stick to the rule of my parents' norm (?)]
My dad leaves his jeans lyin' on the floor.
In his back pocket there's a wallet with a score.
Got about fifty dollars or maybe more.

If Dad catches you with his wallet in hand,
Say it's for the kids. He'll understand.
Don't need to worry. Don't need to hide.
I just tell my dad to feel inside.

Chorus x 2

My soundcard comes and goes [In reply to] Can't Post

and right now it is gone-burger. I'll try to decipher that verse once the sound comes back.

The chorus is stuck in my head this morning. Crazy

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

wow - was that fun! [In reply to] Can't Post

The whole thing was good - although I'm sure I'd love it more if I had understood more.

But I loved the two times that Brett kind a cracked up. The first time when the girl started talking about the Muppet movie and he was digging for compliments on the music. And the second time when, I think, the girl was saying her parents didn't want more than two kids (?). It looked the singers were having a good time with the lyrics, as well.

Another link: [In reply to] Can't Post

This is 14 min. long with Flight of the Concords silliness at the beginning. The video with the kids starts at 5:10 and the song follows. Good luck. You can download the song on iTunes.

But beware! Ataaua speaks true: the chorus will get into your head like "It's a Small World". You have been warned. Evil

That is awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Both the song and its creation - and how great it's done as a fundraiser!

Conchords rock! Heart

Here's what I got (The Starling remix) [In reply to] Can't Post

for the tricky part with Young Sid and PNC:

Stop writing lyrics about yourself
Get your magic words up off the shelf
Oh no, that one's/word's (?) not there anymore
I know late nights - come knock at my door
I sneak in the room where my parents snore
My dad leaves his jeans lying on the floor
In his back pocket's a wallet we could score
Get about fifty dollars or maybe more

Thanks to the time spent trying to figure it out, I now endlessly have: In a BOWL...in a bowl...in a BOWL... in a bowl, a giant bowl!!!
Round and round in my head it goes... and stuff like that...It's enough to make you spew. Laugh

My non-technical explanation [In reply to] Can't Post

(which is the only type I have when it comes to computers) is 'the bit of hardware that enables sound to come through the speakers'.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

We've got the lyrics nailed, I think, Starling. [In reply to] Can't Post

First hip hop verses with Savage:

We've gotta dig for some oil
and some crystals and gold.

Lines with Young Sid:

Stop writing lyrics about yourself
Get your magic wand up off the shelf.
Oh no, that wand's not there anymore.

Do you think it should be "to stop these kids from doing spews" instead of "spew"? (ew!)
Really need to go outside for a walk, probably to hum and mumble "Feeeel insiiiide (and stuff like thaaaaat) to the seagulls. I suppose the lyrics should be up somewhere on the net by now, but we wouldn't have had all this fun!

And don't forget the hand gestures with
"In a bowl........a giant bowl!!! It just doesn't feel right without them.Cool
