The Lonely Island – Space Olympics Lyrics
(Is anybody out there?)
Reach for the stars!
You stand on a distant planet
Skyline of red plateaus
Strange air and vegetation
You're a winner!
Welcome to the Space Olympics
The year 3022
Take part in a grand tradition
Your name echoes in the holes of the universe!
OHHHHHH! Yeahh yeahhhhh
Believe in yourself
Take your game into outer space
Every single galactic athlete
Needs a coded ID badge
Drug tests are mandatory
You're a winner!
The Athlete's Village is on Zargon
You all get a junior suite
We don't cover incidentals
So keep your ass off the minibar!
You're the best in the world!
Brace yo'self cause there's no gravity
You're in the motherfuckin Space Olympics!
Let it be known by every nation
You'll only get one meal a day
There was a bit of a budget snafu
And food funding is insufficient!
We can't really enforce a curfew
As there is no light or sound
Just one of the many problems
With hosting a sporting event in space
(Attention all athletes)
(There are minor scheduling adjustments)
Space Disc! Is totally cancelled
Space Swords! Is totally cancelled
Space Luge! Is also cancelled
And all other events are pending!
Welcome to your Space Olympics
All the oxygen has run out
And someone who will not be named
Accidentally hit self-destruct
As you file to your escape pods
I'll distract the alien hordes (YOU'RE IN THE MOTHERFUCKIN SPACE OLYMPICS)
And as I stare death in the face
I know my sins will take me to hell
You do it for the love, my love
And there ain't no woman that could take your spot my love
