Look Out, Our Leader's Loco! (2003)

By Ying (FFYING2), 2003

With apologies to "Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin (written by Robi Rosa/Desmond Child, 1999)

----------------------------------------------

He's into shady dealin's, salvage and robbin' trains

Sometimes we get the feelin', somethin's missin' like his brain

He's into life that's risky, won't listen to sound advice

He dealt with psycho "Nisky," was shot by Patience twice

He'll enter an Alliance bar on Unification Day

He proudly shows his brown coat off, and he starts a barroom fray

What's he thinkin' anyway? Come On!

CHORUS:

CAP-TAIN MAL REY-NOLDS, oh look out, our leader's loco!

He's sure a mite too bold, look out, our leader's loco!

He's crazy, we've been told, and he's not like regular folk, oh

Doesn't fit the mold, look out, our leader's loco! Come On!

Look out, our leader's loco! Come on!

Oh look out, our leader's loco!

Wound up on old Perseph'ne, wouldn't run from Ath's dumb fight

He won the duel, and he showed some mercy

But stabbed him twice, so he's just all right

He helped the folks of Triumph, stopped the roadway-thief campaign

Zoe didn't wear the dress, he made a tight-pants change

Yeah, he played the wife of Jayne

CHORUS:

CAP-TAIN MAL REY-NOLDS, oh look out, our leader's loco!

He's wearin' women's clothes, look out, our leader's loco!

He brags of good air flows, and we think that's not just a joke, oh

Swears by bonnet oaths, look out our leader's loco! Come On!

Look out, our leader's loco! Come on!

Oh look out, our leader's loco!

He'll enter an Alliance bar on Unification Day

He proudly shows his brown coat off, and he starts a barroom fray

What's he thinkin' anyway? Come On!

CHORUS:

CAP-TAIN MAL REY-NOLDS, oh look out, our leader's loco!

He's sure a mite too bold, look out, our leader's loco!

He's crazy, we've been told, well per-maybe-haps just un poco*

Doesn't fit the mold, lovin' our leader oh so! So much!

Lovin' our leader oh so! So much!

We're lovin' our jefe loco!*

----------------------------------------------

*SPANISH

un poco, a little

jefe loco, crazy leader

Oh. My. God.

That is the funniest, most amazing thing I've ever read...

Now every time I hear that song it's this version I'll be singing!
