Smells like Beam Rifle
posted by John

Many folks have asked for the full lyrics to Igor’s song, in Monday’s comics.

Well, even though this dances dangerously on Filk territory, (a) a band asked if they could play it, and (b) a reader offered me a dollar to come up with the full song. And if there’s anything that will get me to divert precious time from major projects, it’s a dollar. A BRIGHT, SHINY DOLLAR!

So here you go.

(If any bands DO record this, put up an mp3 and I’ll link to it!)

SMELLS LIKE BEAM RIFLE

(With some help from this guy John Kovalic)
(With deep apologies to both Nirvana and Bungie)
(REALLY deep apologies)


Load up your guns, we’re having fun!
The Covenant is on the run!
My overshield I will not yield.
I know, I know I’ll clear the field!

Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo!

Oh the Needler’s now more dangerous
Master Chief will always save us!
I feed rockets in my launcher,
Killing Spree could not be stauncher!
It’s Cortina!
New Mombasa!
Ghosts of Onyx!
Contact Harvest!
Yay! Hey! Yay!

I’ll snipe you from the greatest heights,
And spike grenade your butt tonight!
I’m at my best when pwning noobs!
Im in ur base killin ur doods!

Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo!

Oh the Needler’s now more dangerous
Master Chief will always save us!
I feed rockets in my launcher,
Killing Spree could not be stauncher!
It’s Cortina!
New Mombasa!
Ghosts of Onyx!
Contact Harvest!
Yay! Hey! Yay!

(Solo)

I crush you skull and watch you die -
With tears of joy I start to cry!
The odds have totally been switched
This Grav Hammer makes you my bitch!

Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo Halo?
Halo, Halo, Halo!

Oh the Needler’s now more dangerous
Master Chief will always save us!
I feed rockets in my launcher,
Killing Spree could not be stauncher!
It’s Cortina!
New Mombasa!
Ghosts of Onyx!
Contact Harvest!
Yay! Hey! Yay!

Rocket Launcher!
And a Shotgun!
A Gaus Warthog!
A Frag Grenade!

A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!
A Beam Rifle!

Somebody owes me a dollar.

Yer bestest pal forever,

====== John
