    This is the greatest and best song in the world...
    Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here
    We was hitch hiking down a long and lonesome road
    All of a sudden
    There shined a shiny demon
    In the middle of the road
    And he said
    Play the best song in the world or I'll eat your soul
    Well me and Kyle....... we looked at each other......
    And we each said.....

    And we played the first thing that came to our heads
    Just so happened to be
    The best song in the world
    It was the best song in the world...

    look into my eyes and it's easy to see
    one and one make two, two and one make three
    it was destiny.....

    once every hundred thousand years or so
    when the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
    and the grass doth gro....ow

    Needless to say....
    The beast was stunned....
    Whip-crack with his whoppy tail
    And the beast was done
    He asked us
    snort Be you angels?
    And we said nay
    We are but men. But!
    aaahhhh aaahhh ahhhhooowhooohooo hoowoo hoowoo aiyahaaho

    This is not the greatest song in the world, no
    This is just a tribute
    Couldn't remember the greatest song in the world
    Yeah no
    This is a tribute
    To the greatest song in the world
    It was the greatest song in the world
    this is the greatest motherfuckin' song, the greatest song in the world oh

    barbershop quartet-style bit Lucifer

    And the peculiar thing is this my friends
    The song we sang on that fateful night
    It didn't actually sound anything like this song
    This is just a tribute
    You gotta believe me
    And i wish you were there
    Just a matter of opinion
    pow Good God
    Gotta love him
    So surprised to find ya can't stop him

    Allright x2

      I don't usually post in song discussions but when I saw this on active topics I thought I'd say just how great it is.
