Uhhh...I've never done one of these so feel free to shoot me if it sucks. I blame arimareiji. LOL.

* Added: For those not familiar with the song it's to, it's "Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats.

Sort of a Piro singing it to Miho thing....


We can Gap if we want to
We can leave your horde behind
'Cause your horde don't Gap and if they don't Gap
Well they're no friends of mine

Say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this scene
Leave the last one far behind

And we can Gap,
Safety Gap!

We can go when we want to
The night is young and so am I
And we can cosplay real neat from our hats to our feet
And surprise 'em when you don't die

Say, we can act if we want to
If we don't nobody will
And you can act real 133t and totally sweet
And I can act like an imbecile

And say, we can Gap, we can Gap
Everything out of control
We can Gap, we can Gap
We're doing it from wall to wall
We can Gap, we can Gap
Everybody look at your hands
We can Gap, we can Gap
Everybody takin' the cha-a-a-ance
Safety Gap
Oh well, Safety Gap
Ah yes, Safety Gap

We can Gap if we want to
We've got all your re-spawns'n mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Every scene'll work out right

I say, we can Gap if we want to
We can leave your horde behind
Because your horde don't Gap and if they don't Gap
Well they're no friends of mine

I say, we can Gap, we can Gap
Everything out of control
We can Gap, we can Gap
We're doing it from wall to wall
We can Gap, we can Gap
Everybody look at your hands
We can Gap, we can Gap
Everybody takin' the cha-a-a-ance

Oh well, the Safety Gap
Ah yes, the Safety Gap
Oh well, the Safety Gap
Oh well, the Safety Gap
Oh yes, the Safety Gap
Oh, the Safety Gap, yeah
Well, it's the Safety Gap
It's the Safety Gap
Well, it's the Safety Gap
Oh, it's the Safety Gap
Oh, it's the Safety Gap
Oh, it's the Safety Gap

Edit to add. DrunkenSailor's right I should say what the song is. For those not familiar with the song it's to, it's "Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats.

Outstanding matching of the music, and the song is pretty cool for Miho and Piro's whole thing going on today. I liked it a lot.

But mentioning the original song name and band can really help with these things for us Musical knownothings. I hadn't heard this song in about ten years, and I kind of had to listen to a version on Youtube first to really appreciate how much THIS ROCKS.

@ DrunkenSailor, good point. I'm editing it to add the name of the song it's based on.

It really has been a long time since I've heard the song too. Strangely it just plays itself in my head nicely despite that.

Two filks on the first page? At the same time? Pardon me while I wipe away a tear of joy.

Also, welcome to the CWDB - look, you can see your filk from here!

Don't worry, there's no need for shootin' on this thread. If you feel like writing another one, though, I'd recommend trying to change up the original lyrics more. Filking tends to be more interesting for both the writer and the audience when there's a twist to it, like when you adapt a song that would be totally unexpected for the scene that inspired it, or use a song that would be expected, but with an unexpected point of view. I used an example of that in this ancient post. Give it a try sometime. ^_^

Nicely played.

The original is stuck in my head though.
