Down amongst the toy aisles where the plastic boxes nap
You'll find old dolls and bears and bikes and this year's tie-in crap
Designs of old are re-imagined, new ideas abound
But there is one that captures me the moment that it's found

Well, some kids go for action figures, dolls and human types
While others buy whatever this year's TV schedule hypes
And some like cars or trains or cranes or robot dinosaurs
But me, I want the toy that's all of this in one, and more!

The toys I like are characters from movies and TV;
They're aliens, they're robots, and they've soldiers' weaponry
They have a million gimmicks, they've got movement, lights and voice
And when you're done, they then become all other kinds of toys!

Just fold their arms and bend their legs; then twist them at the waist
Their limbs fold back, their heads retract, their details unencase
And where there was a action figure, now there sits a plane,
Or truck or car or dinosaur or spaceship, base or crane!

There's clever engineering in those robots from the sky
A huge assortment; always there's another 'bot to buy
They'll turn into your favorite shape, they'll change before your eyes
They're all-in-one, they're massive fun, they're robots in disguise!

So not for me your board games or your fuzzy teddy bear;
No bike, no ball, no costume mask, no games of cards to share
The all-in-one philosophy's a quantum playtime leap / down the
Toy aisle, where the
Plastic boxes sleep

Come on friend, why don't we take a flight
And all that Jazz
Launch the Ark into the starry night
And all that Jazz

He's a Porshe-type car
With a softer spot
For the human race
What an Autobot
He'll give his all
When he hears the call
That's all
That's
Jazz

From the dark of space to the plains of Earth
It's always Jazz
In the grounded ship with a mountain berth
It's home to Jazz

He's a saboteur who's into rock'n'roll
With a voice like velvet over gold
If it's Special Ops this robot tops the poll
You know
It's
Jazz

(Instrumental)
It's always Jazz
(Instrumental)
It's always Jazz

It's a plastic toy for every girl and boy
And its name is Jazz
He appears again in a comic book
Yes, in it's Jazz
It's a G1, G2, take a look
Yes, it's still Jazz

Oh, see him there on the cartoon screen
He's a loyal 'Bot and a pun machine
In the film he was eaten but he couldn't be beaten
We love
Live
Jazz

Oh he was there in Iacon, Season One
It's always Jazz
Up to Season Three, he was never done
Always Jazz

Show him where to park his fender
He's a human cultural defender
There's no doubt, so hear us shout it out
We're all
For
Jazz

Come on friend, you need a music break
- So sayeth Jazz
He's gonna play a Cybertronic mix of sound
- It's DJ Jazz
Forget the war, just get down and shake
To all that jazz
He's gonna pump it up and bring the ceiling down
With all that Jazz

Oh he can shimmy till your optics break
Forever Jazz

He's a Porshe-type car
With a softer spot
For the human race
What an Autobot
He'll give his all
When he hears the call
That's all
That's
Jazz

Show him where to park his fender
(G)1, G2, Alternator, Pretender
There's no doubt, so hear us shout it out
We're all
For
Jazz

(Instrumental)
...Jazz!

Yes, we're ever proud
To proclaim out loud
That we -
Like -
Jazz!....

That Jazz!

Could you please specify which tunes your filks are meant to be sung to? I gather your first one is sung to "I Still Call Australia Home" by Peter Allen, but the others I don't get. Thanks.

Well matched, yes.

The tunes are:
"I Still Call Australia Home"
variations on "To Anacreon in Heaven" (The Star-Spangled Banner)
"Movin' Right Along" (Muppet Movie)
"Poison" (Alice Cooper)
More Than Meets The Eye (Transformers: The Movie theme song)
"Buses and Trains" (Bachelor Girl)
"Instruments of Destruction" (N.R.G.)
No particular song, 4/4 beat
"All That Jazz" (Chicago, the Musical)

more than a feeling by soundwave(G1)

i woke up this morning and starscream was gone
i listen to my music to start the day
i lost ravage in a familar song
i closed my eyes and i flew away

its more than a killing *more than a killing
when i hear that old gun blast away
i begin destroying *more than a killing
till i see megatron kill michael bay
i see megatron killing michael bay

So many bots have come and gunned
Their lazers fade as the autobots die
Yet I still reload and kill on
As clear as my gun firing from the sky

its more than a killing *more than a killing
when i hear that old gun blast away
i begin destroying *more than a killing
till i see megatron kill michael bay
i see megatron killing michael bay

When Im out of ammo and cant reload
I call for the sweeps, and send out rumble
And watch as he sends tremors while im in the sky
I closed my eyes and fly away
i fly awa y. i fly away.

ts more than a killing *more than a killing
when i hear that old gun blast away
i begin destroying *more than a killing
till i see megatron kill michael bay
i see megatron killing michael bay



soo what do you guys think? too goriful? i could make up another if that ones too bad

heres another
wake me up before you go go waspinators version

waspinator [4X]

You put the boom-boom into my armor
You send my head flying high when your shooting starts
all this pain into my brain
Goes a zap-zap-zap 'til i go insane
But something's zapping you
Something ain't right
Megatron told me what you did last night
Left me hanging from a thread
I was dieng, but I should have killed with you instead.

blow him up before you go-go
Don't make him destroy me again oh no no
blow him up before you go-go
I don't want to miss you blowing him sky high
blow him up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on fighting solo
blow him up before you go-go
Then take me blasting tonight
I wanna hit them high (yeah, yeah)

once the grey skies are out of my way
You can then take on Doris Day
Explosions brighter them flame
My blasts per minute never been the same

'Cause you're my leader, I'm really a fool
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel
Come on, master, let's go fight
i wont get blown up and everything will be all right

blow him up before you go-go
Don't make him destroy me again oh no no
blow him up before you go-go
I don't want to miss you blowing him sky high
blow him up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on fighting solo
blow him up before you go-go
Then take me blasting tonight
I wanna hit them high (yeah, yeah)

(waspinator)
(waspinator)

come on inferno lets not fight
i hate getting blown up at night
It's cold out there, but it's warm in the base
They can fight, we'll stay away instead

(waspinator)

blow him up before you go-go
Don't make him destroy me again oh no no
blow him up before you go-go
I don't want to miss you blowing him sky high
blow him up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on fighting solo
blow him up before you go-go
Then take me blasting tonight
blow him up before you go-go, Don't make him destroy me again oh no no
Take me blasting

(Boom-boom-boom)

To the tune of O Canada*

O the Beast Wars!
Raging on ancient Earth!
On Axalon by Maximal command.
With glowing Sparks we see thee rise,
From G1 and G2!
Through time and space, O the Beast Wars,
Animated by CG
Our show did have, subtle dirty jokes
O the Beast Wars, our figures can pose free.
O the Beast Wars, we will remember thee.

French** translation
O les Beasties!
Faire rage sur la terre antique!
Sur Axalon par la commande Maximale.
Avec les étincelles rougeoyantes nous vous voyons se lever,
De G1 et de G2!
Par le temps et le cosmos,
O les Beasties, a animé par CG.
Notre exposition a eu, des plaisanteries sales subtiles
O les Beasties, nos jouets peut poser librement.
O les Beasties, nous se rappellera vous.

--------------------
*cos the Beast Wars cartoon was made in Canada.
**That's Canadian French too! Most of us remember that Beast Wars was called "Ani-Mutant" in most Francophone countries, but in Canada it was called "Beasties" (as YTV was uncomfortable with the use of the word "Wars" in the title of a children's cartoon )

To the tune of Salva Nos (from the animé series "Noir")

Dominus Primus Lord Primus
exaudi nos et miserere Hear us and have mercy
exaudi, Dominus Hear us, lord

Dona nobis pacem Grant us peace
et salva nos a Unicron And save us from Unicron
Salva nos, Primus Save us, Primus

Dominus exaudi nos Lord hear us
Dominus miserere Lord have mercy
dona nobis pacem Grant us peace
Sanctus, Gloria Holy, glory

Dona nobis pacem Grant us peace
e dona eis requiem And give them rest
inter oves locum Amongst this rejoiced place
voca me cum benedictis Call me with the blessed
Pie Vector Sigma, dona eis requiem Merciful Vector Sigma, give them rest
Dominus Primus, Sanctus, Gloria Lord Primus, holy, glory
