Song lyrics
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

Best Song in the World. Anyone gonna do a tribute to this one.

It's great to see people not taking music seriously.

is this song supposed 2 be about stairway to heaven? coz on the dvd in the episode "the greatest song in the world" theres a different version and kyle plays stairway to heaven in tribute

its acually a little in joke as they say thay're not playing the greatest song in the world but a tribute...when they play it live they throw the bit part of stairway to heaven because stairway almost always wins those "greatest song" polls that magazines and stuff put out
