The King's Quest Musical Contest
« on: August 14, 2007, 08:04:38 AM »
Michelle had this great idea about the King's Quest Musical. But...it didn't take off. SO...it was such a great idea that it's now a contest! As she said, "Write a song that one character could be singing to another if King's Quest were made into a musical!  It can be a parody or an original work."

Now, you can enter the song you wrote in that thread, or enter another! You MUST give the song a title, and if it's a parody, you need to tell us the tune. You have three weeks! Then one week of voting. And, the more creative, the better the prizes have been, so that might continue!

I need to know how many times you can enter. I'm not sure if I want to use my old one. Also, I have become CRAZILY busy and will mostlikely only be able to post on the weekends. :(

Since these are lot more difficult to write, I'd say multiple-entries are fine.  Also, the contest has only been open for a few days, so you still have time. 8)

Hey, all we ask is you try :) It's the fun of it. And, even if it's not the greatest or a little rough around the edges...if the forumers love it, you will always have a chance of winning :)

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday was my birthday.  This just makes me feel specialll.  Thanks, koko.



Clean my desk
Clean my desk

And the chest
And the rest

hmmmmm....

Clean my desk
Clean my desk

Whatever you do make it shine like the best
In my bedroom that's my stuff -- Yes,
You should clean it but don't you touch
Just keep cleaning that mess, that's fine
But would you clean and not talk all the time?
And that's my cat that's in my lab
So pick up your rag
Don't you dare start to slack

Standing by the chickens cursing me
Right under your breath - thinking about
How life would be if you weren't a slave... YOU!
I'm so tightfisted...

You may not go to town
You may not go to town
I could turn your scrawny hind into butter
Matter fact flies go well with butter and gravy

You may not go to town
You may not go to town
I could turn your scrawny hind into butter
You foolish tiny ungreatful little kid you are so irresponsible!

So go ahead and eat foam
And fix me a meal don't let it cold
Oops, I bet you thought that I owned a stove
What did you think I was making you work for?
Cause you are my slave
Sneaking all around in my home - its not your cave.
Fool, you can't trick me hurry up get to the chicken feed

Standing in the back yard cursing me
Right under your breath - thinking about
How life would be if you weren't a slave... YOU!
Hey!  That's my map!

You shall not know magic
You shall not use magic
I could turn your scrawny hind into butter
Matter fact flies go well with butter and gravy

You must clean the kitchen
You must dust my bookcase
I could turn your scrawny hind into butter
You foolish tiny ungreatful little kid you are so irresponsible!


Clean my desk
Clean my desk
Chicken breasts
Are the best
Clean my desk
Stupid pest
Whatever you do make it shine like the best

Clean my desk
Clean my desk
You foolish tiny ungreatful little kid you are so irresponsible!

TSL Triple Feature
(The Day the Mask Broke)

King Graham was ill the day we lost our will
Connor told us it was planned
And Prince Alex was there in just his underwear
Rosella gasped and stared
Then, something went wrong, for Abdul and his throng
When the prince took matters in his hands
Then at a snail's pace, Wilco came from outer space
And this is what the airhead said:

T-S-L
Ooh, ooh, Ooh
Triple Feature,
Dr. Brain will build
Another creature

See Connor fighting
Ooh, ooh, ooh
No one, dammit
As he'll be sent to
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
A distant planet
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa-oh-oh
At the online, Triple Feature, KQ show


I knew there was a battle inside Mordack's castle
And Cedric was very nearly killed
And I really got shocked, when I saw MoE
Which was not in fact a true King's Quest
Prince Alex said, "Ooh!", gave us a moon
Rosella just gasped once again
But she's along for the ride,
this time, she'll be a bride
and we'll have some terrible thrills
At the

T-S-L
Ooh, ooh, Ooh
Triple Feature,
Dr. Brain will build
Another creature

See Connor fighting
Ooh, ooh, ooh
No one, dammit
He'll be sent to
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
A distant planet
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa-oh-oh
At the online, Triple Feature, KQ show
I will download
The online, Triple feature, KQ show
I hope it won't go slow
downloading the online, TSL, KQ show

I've been working on this while I've been gone. I have two songs, the first one being my old one "Eighteen Years With You":

Oh it'd be great to see my homeland
Live where you I donít have to hear
Just because I am compliant
Doesn't mean Iím not defiant
Quite frankly Iíve had water up to here

I've made meals to last a lifetime
I've been so scarred, almost killed
Iím intelligent, not half-witted
Iím determined, not uncommitted
I'll seek my fortunes once your heart is stilled

There's no future to be found here
No one would believe the tales
Of me growing much older
Which I wonít, if this plan fails
I have seen the way the tide is turning
My time is almost through
I am on the ball, discerning
And thus my plan grew
Iíll  take my leave after
Eighteen years with you
Iíll  take my leave after
Eighteen, Eighteen years with you

One evening while youíre dining
A special something will cut it short
Now at last Iíll get my sweet revenge
For all the past wrongs, I will avenge
I have reached my final and last resort

There's no promise in your old words
It's a trick to keep me down
While youíre gone and busy,
Iíll take a trip to town
Iím going back to where I came from
Never mind I donít know where
All in all the point I've made is
I don't want to stick around
Iíll take my leave after
Eighteen years with you
Iíll take my leave after
Eighteen, Eighteen years with you


And, as I don't too many people know the original song "16th century man", I made this.

My second one is just a quick one for Rosella, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun":
I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear yes Iím a princess
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

All those calling princes give me a fright
My father yells when you gonna go an get wed
Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

Some princes take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun,
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun...
