And now, for your delectation: "The Hero-U Song"!

Post by Rath Darkblade » Tue Nov 27, 2018 8:13 am

Here's one that I wrote into about 30 minutes. ;) Once I had the idea in my head, I just knew I had to write it down! :D

Oh, and this probably doesn't need to be said: this song contains plenty of references to characters and monsters from Hero-U, but only one (very mild) spoiler. (I don't think it's even a spoiler, to be honest - it's just common sense that if you don't at least try to save Joel when he's in danger, he'll die). :(

Anyway, I hope you enjoy! :) If you like it, please feel free to share this with Lori and Corey - I'd do it myself, but I don't know how... :? Does anyone know? I've been writing these little parodies ever since I started playing QfG - they're like little tributes for L&C. :)

The Hero-U Song
(parody of "Vogue" by Madonna)

Pick a lock
Pick a lock
Rogue, rogue, rogue
Rogue, rogue, rogue

There's a boy sneakin' all around the castle
He's been there since July (been there since July)
All your stuff will be gone, it's not a hassle
He'll steal your pants - oh my!

Now Mister Terk is saying that he is a thief
But nobody's caught him stealing yet...
And when he moves away, they're sighing with relief
Now they're locking up their rooms, I'll bet!

'Cause he's a--

Chorus:
Rogue, rogue! (Rogue)
He got to break in rooms and steal your possessions
Hey, hey, hey
Rogue, rogue! (Rogue)
Break a lockpick, pickpocket too!
You know he can do it

Now the Drats quake in fear down in the cellar -
He's gonna steal your heart! (Gonna steal your heart)
He has skills, his performance will be stellar -
You know he's very smart!

Well, Gogs and Zombie Pirates are a-watching out -
Even Pirate King is now on guard;
So don't you go around there calling him a lout,
Or he'll nick your stuff - it's not too hard!

Yeah, he's a--

Chorus:
Rogue, rogue! (Rogue)
He got to break in rooms and steal your possessions
Hey, hey, hey
Rogue, rogue! (Rogue)
Break a lockpick, pickpocket too!
You know he can do it

Lyra's are where you find it
As long as you will mind it
Picks and stealth will be her friends
It's an adventure that never ends
Hide from Terk, Kwerk is free
Outwit proaches for a fee

Chorus:
Rogue, rogue! (Rogue)
Lyras where you find 'em (steal their possessions)
Rogue, rogue! (Rogue)
Lyras where you find 'em (pickpocket too!)

Gog King, Katie, Giant Proach -
Kill it, and you'll find a brooch!
Sosi is a jerk? Well, boo -
Save the land and he'll praise you!

Silvia goes on and on
Riki bakes, but Joel is gone!
Search for Joel, don't let him die -
If he's ghost, he'll say goodbye!

Science is with Prof von Braun;
make a boom, you'll win renown!
Hans and Jamus, Mortuai too;
There's Velanya - we love you!

G. von Urwald teaches rogues,
Moira speaks with Eirish brogue!
There's Gregor, a ratty trader,
Esme hunts - she's a tomb raider!

Rogue, rogue, rogue, rogue, rogue

Oooh, he's got to
Break in rooms and steal your possessions
Oooh, he's got to just
Break a lockpick, pickpocket too
Oooh, he's got to...
Rogue! :twisted:

:) I'm glad you liked it, Datadog.

Yes, I can just picture Aeolus and Shawn doing a duet on the harp and drums, and singing this. :lol: (But let's not picture either of them in the Madonna cone-bra...) :P
