Contest #147 - DQify Some Song Lyrics

Recommended Posts

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Dragon Quest invaded song lyrics? Like, what if Weird Al was a huge DQ fan and just sang songs as DQ covers!?

The theme of this contest is "What if Dragon Quest invaded song lyrics?", and your objective is to take existing songs, and DQ-ify them as best you can. Add in some slimes, heroes, adventures, missions, etc. Change some text around and create a new chorus.  Include pictures or text to set the tone & setting for your song. Whatever you can do to give the existing song a DQ-style lyric-lift.

Here are the rules:

1) You can use any existing song, but you must include text and original artist name.
2) You can submit a maximum of 3 entries for this contest.
3) Your song lyrics must be at least 12 lines and include the chorus of a song.  DQify it some way in order to be accepted for this contest.
4) To enter, simply post your entries directly in this thread.
5) You have until the Mid-Marchish to submit your entries for this contest.
6) Be creative and have fun!

The people who provide the top three submissions will win this contest. 

So with that said, let the fun begin.

 

*Credit to King Zenith for 75% of the text here (just copied his text from an old movie thread). I love copy & paste.

I'll go ahead and start this off.  I thought of this contest a while back, and then heard this song driving to school with my wife today.  Wild Slimes on my mind, here's what I came up with.

 

 

 

Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift

 

 

He said, "Let's get out of this town,

Drive out of the city, away from the crowds."

I thought heaven can't help me now.

Nothing lasts forever, but this is gonna take me down

He's so tall and handsome as hell

He's so bad but he does it so well

I can see the end as it begins

My one condition is

Say you'll remember me

Standing in a nice dress,

Staring at the sunset, babe

Red lips and rosy cheeks

Say you'll see me again

Even if it's just in your

Wildest dreams, ah-ha ohh,

Wildest dreams, ah-ha ohh.

 

I reimagined this as Princess Alena breaking free of town and immediately running into 7 Wild Slimes. Like a situation that might arise in our Bad DQ Endings topic...

Wild Slimes by Plattym3

 

I said, “Let’s get out of this town,

Break out of the city, away from the crowds.

I thought heaven can’t help me now.

A party of seven, so this is gonna take me down.

They’re so small, but handsome as hell

They’re so bad, but they do it so well

I can see the end as battle begins

My one condition is

Say you’ll remember me

Standing as a princess,

Wishing for a flowing dress, babe

Orange hair and bluish cheeks

You’ll never see me again

Even if I kill one…

Wild Slimes, ahhhh ohh,

Wild Slimes, ahhhh o-

My anaconda don't, my anaconda don't
My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hun

Boy toy named Troy used to live in Detroit
Big dope dealer money, he was gettin' some coins
Was in shootouts with the law, but he live in a palace
Bought me Alexander McQueen, he was keeping me stylish
Now that's real, real, real
Gun in my purse, #$#%@, I came dressed to kill
Who wanna go first? I had them pushing daffodils
I'm high as @#@$, I only took a half a pill
I'm on some dumb #$@%,

 

by the way, what he say?
He can tell I ain't missing no meals
Come through and $#@$ him in my automobile
Let him eat it with his grills and he tellin' me to chill
And he telling me it's real, that he love my sex appeal
Say he don't like 'em boney, he want something he can grab
So I pulled up in the Jag, and I hit him with the jab like
Dun-d-d-dun-dun-d-d-dun-dun
 

My anaconda don't, my anaconda don't
My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hun

 

 

Metal Slime

 

 

My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun

Adventuring in Alefgard ruled by Lorik

Big key dealer money, he was gettin' some gold

Lost his daughter to the Dragons, but he live in Tantegel palace
Started me off with a me stick, he wasn't very lavish

Now I'll grind, grind, grind

I just need to level, a few more times

need to go to the inn first? I hate the death fines.
I need a sword, cost 120, only have 25

How much does the axe cost?,

 

Explore this way, I just saved

I got a new spell I can now heal

fighting drackys north of Tantegel
Learned the hurt spell, and one shot them for a kill

Axe price hits me in the feels, I still need chain mail

Fighting skeletons named boney, and fights pretty tough

So I pulled up in the inn, and after I level up like
Duna-dun-dun-da dun-da

My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun

Since mine is kind of a double parody, bits taken from REM and bits taken from Weird Al I will post both source lyric sets in spoilers.

 

REM Version - Stand

 

 

Stand in the place where you live
Now face North
Think about direction, wonder why you haven't before

Now stand in the place where you work
Now face West, think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't before

If you are confused, check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

So, stand in the place where you live
Now face North
Think about direction, wonder why you haven't before
Now stand in the place where you work
Now face West, think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't before

Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
Season is calling

Stand in the place where you live
Now face North
Think about direction, wonder why you haven't before
Now stand in the place where you work
Now face West, think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't before

If wishes were trees the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
Reason is calling
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

So stand (stand)
Now face North
Think about direction, wonder why you haven't before
Now stand (stand)
Now face West
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't

Stand in the place where you live
Now face North
Think about direction, wonder why you haven't before
Now stand in the place where you work
Now face West, think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't before

Stand in the place where you are (now face North)
Stand in the place where you are (now face West)
Your feet are going to be on the ground (stand in the place where you are)
Your head is there to move you around, so stand (tand in the place where you are)

 

 

 

Weird Al Version - Spam

 

Spam in the place where I live
(Ham and pork)
Think about nutrition, wonder what's inside it now
(Oh boy)

Spam in my lunch box at work
(It's the best)
Really makes a darn good sandwich
Any way you slice it at all

If you're running low, go to the store
Carry some money to help you buy more
The tab is there to open the can
The can is there to hold in the spam

Oh, spam on the table at home
(Ham and pork)
Think about selection, are there different flavors now?
(Let's eat)

Spam in my office, at work
(It's the best)
Think about the stuff it's made from
Wonder if it's mystery of meat

If you need a spoon, keep one around
Carry a thermos to help wash it down
Now, if there's some left, don't just throw it out
Use it for spackle or bathroom grout, now

Spam in my pantry, at home
(Have some more)
Think of expiration, better read the label
(Oh boy)

Spam breakfast, dinner, or lunch
(It's the best)
Think about how it's been precooked
Wonder if I'll just eat it cold

image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif

Now, once you start in, you can't put it down
Don't leave it sitting or it'll turn brown
The key is going to open the tin
The tin is there to keep the spam in

Oh, spam
(Spam)
Ham and pork
Think about nutrition, wonder what's inside it now
(Oh boy)

Spam
(Spam)
It's the best
Really makes a darn good sandwich
Any way you slice it

Spam in the place where I live
(Have some more)
Think about addiction, wonder if I'm a junkie now
(Let's eat)

Spam in the place where I work
(You're obsessed)
Think about the way it's processed
Wonder if it's some kind of meat

Spam in the back of my car
(Ham and pork)
Spam any place that you are
(Ham and pork)

The tab is there to open the can
(Spam any place that you are, ham and pork)
The can is there to hold in the spam
(Spam any place that you are, ham and pork)

Weird Al Spam Version
Spam!

 

 

And now my version

Slimes!

 

Slimes in the place where I live
(Orange and blue)
Think about composition, wonder what's inside 'em now
(Oh wow)

Slimes on my way to work
(It's the worst)
Really makes a darn good target
Any way you slice them at all

If you're running away, go level up
Equip a sword to help you slay 'em
Your feet are there to move you around
Your hand is there to swing your sword

Oh, Slimes in the forest near home
(Orange and blue)
Think about selection, there are different colors now?
(Let's slice)

Slimes near my store, at work
(It's the worst)
Think about the stuff they're made from
Wonder if it's mystery or magic

If you need a sword, keep one around
Carry a club to help smash 'em down
Now, if there's some left, don't just throw it out
Use it for alchemy or bathroom grout, now

Slimes in my garden, at home
(Slay some more)
Think of inconvenience, better clear them out now
(Oh man)

Slimes attack at breakfast, dinner, or lunch
(It's the worst)
Think about how to fight back at them
Wonder if I'll just cast Kafrizzle

Now, once you unsheathe your sword, don't put it down
Don't let em go or they'll just come back around
The magic is going to help you cast a spell
Hopefully with that, they won't dwell

Oh, Slimes
(Slimes)
Orange and blue
Think about composition, wonder what's inside 'em now
(Oh boy)

Slimes
(Slimes)
They're the worst
Really makes a darn good target
Any way you slice 'em

Slimes near the place where I live
(Slay some more)
Think about addiction, wonder if I'm a goo-slasher now
(Let's slash)

Slimes in the place where I work
(You're obsessed)
Think about the way they're dispatched
Wonder if they are some kind of magic

Slimes in the back of my wagon
(Orange and blue)
Slimes oh they're just a naggin'
(Orange and blue)

Your feet are there to move you around
(Slimes any place that you are, orange and blue)
Your hand is there to swing your sword
(Slimes any place that you are, orange and blue)
Slimes!

Here is the full version of Metal Slime

 

Metal Slime

 
 

My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun

Adventuring in Alefgard ruled by Lorik
Big key dealer money, he was gettin' some gold
Lost his daughter to the Dragons, but he live in Tantegel palace
Started me off with a me stick, he wasn't very lavish

Now I'll grind, grind, grind
I just need to level, a few more times
need to go to the inn first? I hate the death fines.
I need a sword, cost 120, only have 25
How much does the axe cost?,


Explore this way, I just saved
I got a new spell I can now heal
fighting drackys north of Tantegel
Learned the hurt spell, and one shot them for a kill
Axe price hits me in the feels, still need chain mail
Fighting skeletons named boney, and fights pretty tough
So I pulled up in the inn, and after I level up like
Duna-dun-dun-da dun-da

My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun

Oh my gosh, I bought the Axe
Oh my gosh, I bought the Axe
Oh my gosh, I bought the Axe
(I bought the Axe)
still need, still need, still need
Still, need 900 for chainmail

This town named hauksness used to be the richest
Dragonlord razed it to the gorund, left no eyewitness
If you explore the ruins, better be into fitness
Axe Knight puts you to sleep, and he shows off his prowess

Now I'll grind, grind, grind
I just need to level, a few more times
need to go to the inn first? I hate the death fines.
I need a broadsword, cost 1500, only have 1125
How much does the Magic Armor cost?

Explore this way, I just saved
I found a way, Through this cave
Ran from a dragon , I'm not that brave
Fighting werewolves for Days, get to rimuldar in a daze
buy some more keys if I may, Inn cost 55 gold a Stay
Fighting Wizards like Harry, and fights pretty tough
So I pulled up in the inn, and after I level up like
Duna-dun-dun-da dun-da

My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun

Oh my gosh, I bought the broadsword,
Oh my gosh, I bought the broadsword,
Oh my gosh, I bought the broadsword,
(I bought the broadsword,
still need, still need, still need
Still, need 7700 for Magic Armor

Found some more treasure but no room in the sack
Found some more treasure but no room in the sack
Found some more treasure but no room in the sack
(Oh my gosh, I bought the Magic Armor)

My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun
My Metal Slime don't, my Metal Slime don't
My Metal Slime don't want none so its gonna run, hun

Oh my gosh, I bought the Flame sword
Oh my gosh, I bought the Flame sword
Oh my gosh, I bought the Flame sword
(I bought the Flame sword)
still need, still need, still need
Still, need 14800 for silver shield

Yeah, After all of that, brewhaha!
The best armor in the world cost noting to get
I said, The best sword in the world cost noting to get
Forget the armory dealers! Forget the armory dealers in the world!
I wanna save all the armory dealers in the world!
And they still gonna charge for equipment, what?! Kyuh
Haha, haha
I got a princess (princess)
Come on!

You'd need to make up a song. Then make up a DQ version of a song. If you'd like to do both, sure!

SOME SUNDAY MORNING

(Link will give you some idea of the melody)

(right-click and open in new tab)

 

 

 

SOME SUNDAY MORNING

M K Jerome (m) Ray Heindorf (m) Ted Koehler (l)  1945

 

Some Sunday morning is goin' to be
Some Sunday morning for someone and me!
Bells will be chiming an old melody,
'Specially for someone and me!

 

There'll be an organ playing,
Friends and relations will stare.
Say, can't you hear 'em saying,
"Gee, what a beautiful pair!"?

 

Some Sunday morning, we'll walk down the aisle,
You'll be so nervous and I'll try to smile!
Things sure look rosy for someone and me,

Some Sunday morning, you'll see!

Some Sunday morning is goin' to be
Some Sunday morning for someone and me!
Bells will be chiming an old melody,

'Specially for someone and me!

There'll be an organ playing,
Friends and relations will stare.
Say, can't you hear 'em saying,
"Gee, what a beautiful pair!"?

 

Some Sunday morning, we'll walk down the aisle,
You'll be so nervous and I'll try to smile!
Things sure look rosy for someone and me,
Some Sunday morning, you'll see

 

 

 

SOME GRIMY DUNGEON

 

 

SOME GRIMY DUNGEON

Some grimy dungeon is waiting for me
Some creepy boss is there waiting to see
What sword I'm wielding
And which skill he will see

 

Magic is flying and fire everywhere
Boss will be reeling from damage we’ve done
Healing will render our party to full
My goodness won’t that be fun

 

That boss we’ll be flaying
His minions will glare
We won’t be playing
We won’t have a care

 

Those grungy hallways are teaming with bile
Monsters are nervous and we will just smile
Treasure a plenty there’s going will be
Gold for the party and me

 

This grimy dungeon is going to see
Keifer, Gabo, Melvin and me
We will be swing swords merrily
Soon that old boss will not be

 

That boss we’ll be flaying
His minions will glare
We won’t be playing
We won’t have a care

 

We’ll save the Princess this I guarantee
She’ll be so nervous and we will just smile
Escorting her safely rewards there will be
The King will be happy, you’ll see

Alright here we go one of my favorite animes of all time Dragon Ball.

 

 Excellent Dynamic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go_dFX2Unt8

 

Let’s start the continuation

Of the dream that was once interrupted

Just draw up the universe

Connecting all of the stars together

And the brand new stage will be called

The place where we challenge the gods

Intense ☆ Violent ☆ Dynamic!

Let’s Go! Go! A huge panic

Losing makes us stronger

Not knowing our place means that we have

No regrets, limits or anything like that

Sublime ☆ Super ☆ Excellent!

Let’s Go! Yes! A barrage of kicks

I give, trembling with excitement

An amazing story is awaiting us

 

Parody:

 

Let us start the post-game

Of the Rev’rie that was once interrupted
Just cast Zoom into the sky
Grinding up all of the classes together
And the super boss will be called
The one, almighty Nokturnus
Oomph Me’ ☆ Tal Slash ☆ Double Up!
Let’s Grind! Grind! Metal King Slimes
Grinding makes us stronger
Not having a class level cap means
We can grind till we all are Metal Masters
Fullheal ☆ Kabuff ☆ Magic Burst!
Prayer! Ring! Sands of Time
I rise, after casting Kazing
An amazing game is awaiting all us

Here's my 1st submission:

 

Deborah - Based on the song "Mother" as found on Pink Floyd's The Wall.

 

Original lyrics:

 

https://play.google.com/music/preview/Tsg4jiwfoo34f7ndelqehbtmbi4?lyrics=1&utm_source=google&utm_medium=search&utm_campaign=lyrics&pcampaignid=kp-lyrics

 

Changed lyrics:

 

Deborah

Do you think I'm "the bomb?"

 

Deborah

Do you think she'll like this song?

 

Deborah

Do you think she'll try to break my balls?

 

Ooooh aah,

Deborah, why build up this wall?

 

 

Deborah

Should I really become the king?

 

Deborah

Won't you just accept this ring?

 

Deborah

Why put me in the firing line?

 

Ooooh aah, am I just a waste of time?

 

 

 

"Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry

 

Deborah's gonna make all of your nightmares come true.

 

Deborah's gonna put all of her fears into you.

 

Deborah's gonna keep you right here under her heel.

 

I won't let you fly, and I won't let you sing.

 

But maybe Deborah will keep baby cosy and warm...

 

Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe

 

Of course Deborah's gonna keep up this wall."

 

 

 

Deborah

Do you think she's good enough? For me...

 

Deborah

Do you think she's dangerous? To me...

 

Deborah

Will she tear me limb from limb apart?

 

Oooh aah, Deborah, will she break my heart?

 

 

"Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry...

 

Deborah's gonna check out all your monsters for you.

 

Deborah won't let any filthy ones get through.

 

Deborah's won't wait up for you to turn in.

 

Deborah will always know where you've been

 

Deborah's might keep her baby healthy and clean...

 

Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe

You'll always be baby to me."

 

 

Deborah

Why do I love you so?

 

 

(For clarification, the lyrics in quotations are meant to be Deborah speaking.)

Here's my 2nd submission:

 

Goodbye Blue Slime - Based on the song "Goodbye Blue Sky" as found on Pink Floyd's The Wall.

 

Original lyrics:

 

Ooooh (repeats 3 times)

Did you see the frightened ones?

Did you hear the falling bombs?

Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the

Promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

 

Oooooh (repeats 2 times)

Did you see the frightened ones?

Did you hear the falling bombs?

The flames are all long gone, but the pain lingers on.

 

Goodbye, blue sky

Goodbye, blue sky.

Goodbye.

Goodbye.

 

 

Changed lyrics:

 

Ooooh (repeats 3 times)

Did you see the liquids run?

Did you hear the falling blobs?

Did you ever wonder why they always run for shelter when the

Thought of swords and spells robbing could end them, except for the clear blue Slime?

 

Oooooh (repeats 2 times)

Did you see the Kings all run?

Did you hear the falling blobs?

The Frizz is all long gone, but the Slime lingers on.

 

Goodbye, blue Slime

Goodbye, blue Slime.

Goodbye.

Goodbye.

 

 

(As you can tell, I'm in a bit of a Pink Floyd mood with my submissions with two of my favorite songs from The Wall.)
