The song is from Monty Python's Meaning Of Life. Language and juvenile/adult themes. It's the second song from the bottom. No pun intended.

It's not mine, but I still sing "Pretty Fly (Cause I Like Pie)" when I hear "Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)".

I've been to cities that never closed down
From Crystal to Darkmount and Iacon town
But no matter what planet or system I roam
I'll always call Cybertron home.

I've crewed on spaceships and shuttles galore
As soon as I touch down I'm launching once more
But my fuel pump still yearns for those spi-res and domes;
I'll always call Cybertron home.

All the senseless slaughter
Echoed down the ages
A futile and factional fray.
And 'though our world is older, and colder,
Still I hope I'll return there some day

(When) We are two peoples united as one,
And all of our starships come back from far suns;
Then I'll realise something that I've always known -
I'll always call Cybertron,
(always call Cybertron,)
Always call Cybertron home!

The slow speed of light urged the first hyperdrive,
Then Spanner invented a new way to travel.
Built into his bridge by the 'Cons while alive
So the delicate void wouldn't start to unravel.
But the stresses of stars gave him gravity-scars,
And then black-hole-linked Megatron blew him to char
Fear of death led a Star-Mangled-Spanner to waive
Freedom's choice; even now, as a corpse he's enslaved.

Scratching down a filk to lyrics someone's requested
Or maybe suggested,
I hope that I won't break it
Muppetational in scope
My goal: to remake it
Or failing that, fake it (Ya!)
I'll find a goal and there I'll take it


How about a line
That speaks of TV shows?
Is G1 the best or is it overexposed?

What about a verse
(Wait a mo, wait a mo)
That says the comics are best?
Pick a continuity and throw out the rest.


Movie threads can sometimes get a bit controversial
A two-hour commercial
For Hasbro corporation
Killed off half the G1 cast, ol' Starscream was toasted
(He came back re-ghosted)
Was Season Three an abberation?


Moving' right along - hey, G2, where did you go?
Wait 'till ninety six to see a new TV show.

Then we have the Beasts
(not a truck, not a truck!)
The fuzzballs stole the show
Love it, hate it, Beast Machines would change what we know.


Ladder truck for Prime, and fighting Predacon forces
With lengthy discourses
But static animation
Now Armada, Energon and Dreamwave revivals
Ensure the survival
Of our obsessive fascination


Alternator tech
And toys and fans and Cons
I think we've hit the big time
More than twenty years on.

You're cruel, but I
Can't run, won't hide
Your looks, could kill
My pain, your thrill

I want to love you but we're fighting instead
I want to hold you but I'm Maximal, you're a Pred
I want to kiss you but you fill me with dread
My friends say waste you 'cause your lips are Predacon poison

You're poison running through my brain
Poison
Struggle 'gainst these thoughts in vain

I'm yours
We fought
Your web
I'm caught
Can't break
Your net
You'll be
Mine yet

I hear you calling and I cannot resist
I'd crawl through lava just for one more chance of a kiss
I know we're enemies but I shoot to miss
I'll be a target for those lips of Predacon poison

You're poison running through my brain
Poison
Take up arms now, once again
Poison

One shot, could kill
My pain, your thrill

I want to love you and my heart rules my head
I want to hold you but you've bound me tight in your thread
I want to kiss you, all my reason has fled
I think I'm fated to go down to Predacon poison

You're poison running through my brain
Poison
Attraction I can not explain
Poison

I want to love you but my friends have all said
Desire to hold you only means I'll quickly be dead
I like to think that I can see what's ahead
I know my destiny - succumbed to Predacon poison

Our fate it binds me, I'm enchained
I'm poisoned, oh no
Spider's weapon, hero's bane
Share my life, my joy, my pain
Poison
Spurn me, burn me, I remain
Poisoned

- Our world is shattered and our people torn by war
(Our) conflict ever grows and yet we can't deny our core
(We) drink from power's source and light the fire in our eyes
(With) crystal hearts and hands of steel - we're robots in disguise

Transformers
More than meets the eye
Transformers
Robots in disguise

(Is) This the will of Primus or some evil Quintesson?
(Will) We forever battle in a war we all prolong?
Immortal strife our destiny, we tarnish and destroy
(Is) Free will an illusion, are we nothing more than toys?

Transformers
Destiny devised
Transformers
Cybertron arise

Millennia have come and gone and seen our endless fight
(These) Autobots, Decepticons, consigned unto the night
(And) Silent voices wonder if the day will ever come
(To) Lay our weapons down at last and say that all are one

Hey fans - Why didn't you warn me?
Why didn't you say I'd become like you?
Did you just let me go out, onto the net -
Now fan-spawned sites have captured me too.

So I put filks on the net, wrote a fanfic quatrain
Tried a site of my own, learned of "writer's block" pain;
I've spent all my nights locked in role-playing games
And it felt so good, I wanna do it again.

Hey now - you're sitting there grinning;
'Cause I found toys were something I had to own.
Bought an Opt'mus Prime, and Seeker jets.
I know addiction now, but I just can't leave it alone!

So I spent cash on the toys, now my wallet's in pain
The BotCon I loved, I did more of the same!
Found adminning bites, on those role-playing games
But it felt so good, I'd do it over again.

And I watched shows for the Truck, slowed it down frame by frame
And the monkey stuff, guess I'd catch it again.
I wanna see it again, just cos it borrowed the name, hey hey!
Ohh, think it's so good... hey?

Hey group - since I'm posting -
What was it like, when 'here' was young?
Guess the names change, and it's not the same,
But all in all, we're still encored as number one!

So I watched all of the shows, learned the voice actors' names
A link to my site got me minutes of fame
My sketching improves, Khanna's style is my aim
If I'm not so good, I can redo it again

And I scanned sites on the net, till the art filled my brain
Read TrypticonX, wondered who was insane
I learned how to filter the best from the lame
But I read it all, and I'd do it again.

And I lurked on a.t.t, 'til I had to declaim -
And it felt so good, I'll maybe do it again.

Are you ready for action
Are you ready for war
Choose a face and a faction
Choose a powerful core

Are you willing to face it
Are you willing to die?
Will you rise and embrace it?
Are you ready to fly?

Instruments of destruction
Pawns to die today
Violence and corruption
Flexing powerplays

Does it really matter
If you smash or bounce
As you drown in the chatter
Take a ton for an ounce

And when the night's a nation
You've defied the storm
Define your own creation
Take it and transform

Instruments of destruction
Tools to find a way
Pylons of construction
Exist in disarray

What's in an existence?
Why continue to fight?
Why the spark of resistance?
Why the howl in the night?

And when destruction's over
You've survived the storm
Leave the world behind now
You are now transformed
