Words in a line. All fanfic goes here, Erfworld or otherwise.

[FILK] Are we Units... or are we 'Mancer?

Postby BarGamer » Wed May 13, 2009 10:18 pm

When I realized that Wanda was pretty much saying she was a puppet of Fate, I couldn't help but write this... (as best I could.)

Are we Units, or Are we 'Mancers, by The Croaker
To the tune of "Are we Human, or are we Dancer?" by The Killers

I did my best to Summon
when the QUACK came down the Book.
Up to the Tower of Efdup,
he was tall but he was kind.
And sometimes he gets tir-ed,
when he sees a flight o' stair.

"Take my hand, don't let go...
CALLAHAN'S"
Are we units... or are we 'Mancer?
My Side is Volcano'd, my mans are skull'd.
And I'm on Stanley's, looking for the Arken...
Are we Units, or are we 'Mancer?

Pay my upkeep to keep me amused.
Cheap my commanders are to food.
Give my sushis after Thinkamance.
They always did things the hard way.
And so long to Banhammer, you taught me everything I know.
Faq's goodbye, mission hell...

You gotta mass De-Crypt.
Are we units... or are we 'Mancer?
My Side is Volcano'd, my mans are skull'd.
And I'm on Stanley's, looking for the Arken...
Are we Units, or are we 'Mancer?

Will your cities be alright,
when I dream of Tools tonight?
There is a message Stan's receiving,
"Let me know is your city still standing."

Are we units... or are we 'Mancer?
My Side is Volcano'd, my mans are skull'd.
And I'm on Stanley's, looking for the Arken...

You gotta get to home.
Are we units... or are we 'Mancer?
My Side is Volcano'd, my mans are skull'd.
And I'm on Stanley's, looking for the Arken...
Are we Units,
or are we 'Mancer?

Are we Units, or are we 'Mancer?
Are we Units, or are we 'Mancer?

Ahahahaha! Thanks for posting this. It's awesome.

Project Sisyphus just parodied this song on The FuMP, too. :D

Boy, is my face red! I heard that way back on the 5th. Ah, well, such is the nature of Filking, the internet, and my brain. I'm glad I could make the authors of one of my favorite comics laugh, even if I feel considerably less clever about it.

I wonder if Sisyphus would be willing to sing my song? XD

Nah, don't sweat it. Multiple parodies of the same song are common. We have three parodies of "Rockstar" alone on the FuMP. So what? They're all funny.

EDIT: Make that four parodies of "Rockstar," plus one by Insane Ian. :lol:

I lol'd, but then I realized that I've been listening to The Killers' music for over 100 hours nonstop, then I cried.
