Tokyo Showdown
After Zoot Suit Riot

Who's that rumbling 'round the bend?
It's that turtle, he's drunk again
Stomp and roar and buildings fall
Inarticulate, he calls

Reptile hit the booze, now he's laying waste downtown
You'd best stay away when that drunken foot comes down!

Tokyo showdown (Showdown!)
Property damage galore
Tokyo showdown (Showdown!)
I put a fist through your patlabor
(x2)

Go, kame!

Past those terrified civili-ans
A stern-eyed policeman with a robot tan
Cracks those knuckles on his metal hand
Time to kick some turtle can

Your permit's out of date, and I'll confiscate your ale
Now you turtles know how your friends end up in jail!

Tokyo showdown! (...)

You're in a Tokyo showdown!

Zuru zai-ow
Zuru za-zu-zey
Play, aveleeger
Zey zey zey

Zuru zai-ai-ai-ow
Zuru za-zu-zey
Zezzo, za zezzo
Dey dey dey[1]

Oh, your permit's out of date, and I'll confiscate your ale
Now you turtles know how your friends end up in jail!

Tokyo showdown! (...)

You're in a Tokyo showdown!

(cute girl robot voice:) I think I'm about ready to swing 'im.




[1]: I kept the scat as it is in the original. I just wanted to try and transcribe it.

This was never intended to be an entry in the filk contest, but it was interesting to see if I could adhere to all the rules. (Except for deadline, I think I did.) Of note: 'Tokyo' should be pronounced two syllables, as in the Japanese; Masamage should (as often) be thanked for her various minor acts of poetic midwifery throughout the writing; it unnerves me a little that I can't say with certainty that this is the silliest filk I've ever done.
