Here in MegaTokyo to the tune of "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music

Piro: Seifuku'd schoolgirls with socks that are floppy,
New shoujo manga with plots that are soppy,
Sad-eyed young girls stranded out in the snow,
That's why I came here to MegaTokyo!

Largo: Decaying empires straight out of Gibbon,
Decaying zombies that I cut to ribbons,
Rail guns with bullets that endlessly flow,
All that's online here in MegaTokyo!

Kimiko: Living a life that's not stranded in limbo,
Playing a gig and not playing a bimbo,
Getting to talk to this fellow Piro,
That's what I want out of MegaTokyo!

Piro: Now I'm dressed up!
Largo: I'm not messed up!
Kimiko: And I'm out of dough!
All: But then we remember just what we came for,
And then we don't feel so low!

Yuki: Cute gaijin guys who are also romantics,
Ping: Cute gaijin guys who don't play with semantics,
Erika: Cute gaijin losers with nowhere to go,
All: That's what we've found here in MegaTokyo!

Inspector Sonoda: Rampaging zombies who have the right permit!
Ed: Dead things! Largo: And cool things! Ping: And turtles in orbit!
Miho: Legions of ravers who dance deep below,
All: That's what we love about MegaTokyo!

Piro: When I've fscked up,
Largo: When my time's up,
Kotone: When I'm stuck in snow,
All: We simply remember just why we came here,
And then we don't feel so low!

Erika: Fanboys who know how to watch from a distance,
Miho: Fanboys who jump at my smallest insistence,
Kimiko: Fanboys who hide from my coffeepot's blow,
All: They must be somewhere in MegaTokyo!

Seraphim: Respectful clients who know I'm not kidding,
Asmodeus: Furry familiars who do all my bidding,
Boo: ---
All: That's what's at stake here in MegaTokyo!

Dom: An Aitch-and-Kay pistol that gleams when I shine 'er,
Ed: Holsters in colors that match my eye-liner,
Junpei: Worthy opponents for Junpei to throw,
All: That's why we're working in MegaTokyo!

Asmodeus: When my cat nips,
Ed: When my face hurts,
Dom: When there's no ammo,
All: We simply remember the job that's at hand,
And then we don't feel so low!

My Favorite Things from "The Sound of Music"

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Japanese pronounciation of "Tokyo" o-negai: sounds like two syllables, not three. (I think the short/long vowel distinction of Nihongo is lost on a lot of ears, at least when used in English.) I changed the last two lines because there aren't that many words rhyming with "thing." Betcha that's why the original is so short. HAH!
