Tribute (The Greatest Song In The World) by Tenacious D
This is the greatest and best song in the world... Tribute.
Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,
we were hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.
All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon...
in the middle... of the road.
And he said:
"Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your souls." (soul)
Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other,
and we each said... "Okay."
And we played the first thing that came to our heads,
Just so happened to be,
The Best Song in the World, it was The Best Song in the World.
And it saved our butts,
Because the demon wanted to kill us ohhh
But he was forced to set us free
By the honor codes that demons... have to live by
Cause its satans surprize and its magic
And its a mystical disquise
The devils strong and its tragic
You are the mystical eyed virgin and your rocking
well Needless to say, the beast was stunned.
Whip-crack went his rumped tail,
And the beast was done.
He asked us: "(snort) Be you angels?"
And we said, "Nay. We are but men."
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,
Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!
This is not The Greatest Song in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.
Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World, no, no.
This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was the best muthaf**kin' song the
greatest song in the world.
And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
the song we played on that fateful night it didn't actually sound
anything like this song.
This is just a tribute! You gotta believe me!
And I wish you were there! Just a matter of opinion.
Ah, f**k! Good God, God lovin',
So surprised to find you can't stop it.
All right! All right!
