Parody of Gotta get away by Jackie Trent & Tony Hatch

Post by Mashibinbin » Sun May 24, 2020 8:52 am

After hearing that Steve Coogan might be bringing back The Persuaders! I was suitably convinced to revise this jaunty little number from the original. It mostly focuses on beating a certain 8 legged arachnid but also ends with the futility of going for one particular quest object...enjoy! :)


This ol' forest's a getting sticky
Feel the spider is gaining on me
every way
Spells can give me faster motion
We could drink a strange looking potion
Cannot stay
Like a gazelle we're deftly gaining
Tree stump objects close by
And then we play our Joker card
Say goodbye
Make our getaway
Once we're heading down the track
Make our getaway
There's never any turning back
Make a getaway
Where the sky is purple above
When Ariadne descends from above
Gotta get away
Leave behind the webstrewn lair
We can find Level 3 together
If we can pay
Pay the Boatman some denomination
Heading for our destination
Far away
We sure showed that chamber of extraction
Merlin even gave us Mercury's shoe
And bring your advisors
Waiting there for me and you
Gotta get away
Once we're heading down the track
Gotta get away
There's never any turning back
Gotta get away
Where the sky is purple above
When all you have is some silly glove
Gotta get away
So we've beat blades, but not a tertiary door
Don't we get a chance for more?
We almost got the cup to see
Christmas is close by
Now we're saying bye
This ol' forest's a getting sticky
Feel the spider is gaining on me
every way
Spells can give me faster motion
We could drink a strange looking potion
Cannot stay
Like a gazelle we're deftly gaining
Tree stump objects close by
And then we play our Joker card
Say goodbye
Make our getaway
Once we're heading down the track
Make our getaway
The chalice never gets brought back
Come what may
Where the quest objects to choose are above
When Pickle tries to advise from above
Choose differently!

A nice surprise to read a new Knightmare song parody from someone other than me for the first time since... let me check... December 2016! I like the way you've built it around "no turning back".

I can't recall hearing the original song before. It reminds me of the 'urban myth' that:

Thankyou, a combination of having minimal free time, real life events and sheer frustration at not getting one to feel right has been the reason for my absence here. Hopefully now inspiration has finally broke through it can continue a little sooner next time. :)
