With five months from conception to completion
And over nine-thousand hours in MSPaint

To Live in Megatokyo [Sugar Mountain]

Oh, to live in Megatokyo
With the gamers and the tourists marooned
I'd spend some weeks now in Megatokyo
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon
You're leaving there too soon

It's so noisy on the web
But lots of sites go dead
Write for anime and news
Try to get a million views

Oh, to live in Megatokyo
With the gamers and the tourists marooned
I'd spend some weeks now in Megatokyo
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon
You're leaving there too soon

There's a guy I know online
Oh, his drawings are so fine
Make a comic for my site
He can draw and I can write

Oh, to live in Megatokyo
With the gamers and the tourists marooned
I'd spend some weeks now in Megatokyo
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon
You're leaving there too soon

Now we've got a couple strips
And we've got a dozen hits
Now a thousand from a link
And the server starts to sink

Oh, to live in Megatokyo
With the gamers and the tourists marooned
I'd spend some weeks now in Megatokyo
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon
You're leaving there too soon

Now the comic's gettin' hot
Better figure out a plot
Ain't it funny how you feel
When you're findin' out it's real?

Oh, to live in Megatokyo
With the gamers and the tourists marooned
I'd spend some weeks now in Megatokyo
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon
You're leaving there too soon

Oh, to live in Megatokyo
With the gamers and the tourists marooned
I'd spend some weeks now in Megatokyo
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon
You're leaving there too soon
I Am a Toy [I Am a Child]

I am a toy
Made for the boys
I'd like to love but I may not have a choice
You hold my hand
Braid up my hair
It's lots of fun to have you there

God gave to you, now you give to me
I'd like to know how you work
I think in Perl and sometimes in C
What do you do with a doll that's broke?
What would you do?

You are a girl
You have free will
I try to feel but my code controls me still
Let's play a game
Go to a fair
It's lots of fun to have you there

God gave to you, now you give to me
I'd like to know how you work
I think in Perl and sometimes in C
What do you do with a doll that's broke?
What would you do?

I am a toy
Made for the boys...
Pot of Brew [Heart of Gold]

You look so nice
I need some ice
I've gotten scalded by a pot of brew
Give me your number, a pack of ice
To fix the damage from the pot of brew
(And I'm loving you)
Felt the damage from a pot of brew

I've seen Sapporo
Flown out to Tokyo
I wanted nothin' but a pot of brew
Next time you see me
Just go get Meg'mi
Lest I get scalded by a pot of brew
(And I'm loving you)
Get scalded by a pot of brew

I've been scalded by a pot of brew
You got me scalded but I'm loving you
I've felt the damage from a pot of brew
Oh, o~oh
The Static and the Damage Done [The Needle and the Damage Done]

I felt you flowin' through my carpet floor
You zapped my mem'ry and my motherbo~ard
Oh, oh, the damage done

I touched the RAM sticks and I lost my box
I felt the static travel through my socks
Gone, gone, the damage done

I sing the song because I love to build
Don't be the laughingstock of your guild
Hack nude to keep from burning up

I've seen the static and the damage done
A little voltage is in everyone
But to a setup it's like exploding suns
Wai Wai, Hey Hey [My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)]

Wai wai, hey hey
Megatokyo's here to stay
It's better to walk out
Than to turn out lame
Wai wai, hey hey

Off of the web and into a book
You write for both but it doesn't work
But once you start you can't help but look
When it's off of the web and into a book

The writer's gone but the comic's lastin'
This is the story of Rodney Caston
It's better to walk out than to stand the snow
The writer's gone but the comic's lastin'

Hey hey, wai wai
Megatokyo'll never die
I don't like the comic
Now watch Esty cry
Hey hey, wai wai

Let's play some rock 'n roll!

Yuki-chan [Farmer John]

Yuki-chan
I'm in love with your mama
(Sorry, gal - but you got no shape!)
I love the way she flies
I love her shapely thighs
I love the way she glitters
She glitters when she flies

Yuki-chan
I'm in love with your mama
(Sorry, gal - but you got no shape!)
I love the way she flies
I love her shapely thighs
I think she stole my wallet
She got it, she got it!

Yuki-chan
I'm in love with your mama
(Sorry, gal - but you got no shape!)
I love the way she flies
I love her shapely thighs
I think she stole my wallet
She got it, she got it!

Yuki-chan...
Largo the Loser [Cortez the Killer]

He came drunken across the water
Never cried for human love
Posing as a warrior
Slayer of the Son of Sun[*]

On the isles sang Hayasaka
In the studios she reigned
On her shows she sounds so perfect
For her voice would never strain

And her fanbase gathered 'round her
Like the snow on some sad girl
In their costumes for their websites
For to woship Tokyo's pearl

And the heroines were beautiful
And their faces cold and long
They offered lives of fantasy
So the fanbase could feel strong

Love was just a legend
And heartbreak never known
The fanbase played together
And they'd live their lives alone

And Largo came in the story
With his skills so honed and l33t
And he'd take her as his student
To teach about his cool things

And I know she's living there
And she loves him to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how he lost his way

He came drunken across the water
Largo, Largo
What a loser


[*]Son of Sun: Enemy in Chrono Trigger
Magical Girl [Cinnamon Girl]

I wish I could be like a Magical Girl
I could be happy the rest of my life as a Magical Girl

A fangirl of artists, a lesson at nine
I'm sitting alone there, with sketches of mine
Of a Magical Girl

One grimy gaijin, a 'zilla I stole
The lizard goes ragin' but does what he's told
By a Magical Girl

A fangirl of artists, a lesson at nine
I'm sitting alone there, with sketches of mine
Of a Magical Girl

Mom, tell me something now
I'm so confused, and somehow
I nearly mashed my crush
I think I need another brush
Yeah, yeah, ye~ah
Hey Hey, Wai Wai [Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)]

Hey hey, wai wai
Megatokyo'll never die
I don't read the comic
Don't ask me why
Hey hey, wai wai

Off of the web and into a book
You write for both, but it doesn't work
But once you start you can't help but look
When it's off of the web and into a book

The writer's gone but the comic's lastin'
(Rodney Caston, Rodney Caston)
Is this the story of Rodney Caston?
(Rodney Caston, Caston Rodney)
It's better to walk out 'cause Piro isn't funny
The writer's gone but the comic's lastin'

Hey hey, wai wai
Megatokyo'll never die
I don't read the comic
Don't ask me why
Tonight's the Night (Revised and Reprised) [Tonight's the Night]

Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ight
Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ight...

Makoto was a workin' gal
She used to serve for those forumite pals
A sparkle was in her eye
When she got her nikuman

Well, late at night when the fanboys were mean
She used to cry at "Erika"
And sing our filks in a shaky voice
And she'd sound like a server queen

Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ight
Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ight...

Early in the Grand Prix and at Filkmas time
She used to serve until the afternoon
If her insides never showed
I guess they won't too soon

'Cause people let me tell you
It sent a crash right across the board
When I browsed over Piro's rant
And heard that she's fried beyond any reboot!

Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ight
Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ight...

Makoto was a workin' gal
She used to serve for those forumite pals
Late at night when the fanboys were jerks
She used to cry at "Kimiko"

Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ght
Tonight's the night, tonight's the ni~ght...
