VERSE 1: In a different time Where no one's gone before You came into my sight So cute, could not ignore You purred at me You purred at me You purred at me And I guess I didn't think That there would be a catch And so I fell hard And then I brought you back With me With me With me PRE-CHORUS: Now it's gone wrong And it won't cease And I realize the blame is on me CHORUS: 'Cause I didn't know the tribble that I brought in Would make such a mess now Who knew you'd go multiplyin' When I put you down, no I didn't know the tribble that I brought in So shame on me now Who knew you'd go multiplyin' Now I have so many more to pass around Oh, oh, tribbles, tribbles, tribbles Oh, oh, tribbles, tribbles, tribbles VERSE 2: They take up cargo space They do not seem to stop The crew is obsessed They even got Spock We're drowning We're drowning We're drowning And now they're everywhere On the bridge and in the vents And when I order food they come out instead And now I see And now I see And now I see PRE-CHORUS: That it's gone wrong And it won't cease And I realize the blame is on me CHORUS: I didn't know the tribble that I brought in Would make such a mess now Who knew you'd go multiplyin' When I put you down, no I didn't know the tribble that I brought in So shame on me now Who knew you'd go multiplyin' Now they're covering the cold hard ground Oh, oh, tribbles, tribbles, tribbles Oh, oh, tribbles, tribbles, tribbles BRIDGE: And it's all come clear I'm wearing thin I am losing it 'cause all I think about is shooting them CHORUS: I didn't know the tribble that I brought in Would make such a mess now Who knew you'd go multiplyin' When I put you down, no I didn't know the tribble that I brought in Phasers set to kill now Getting into absolutely everything Wanna stomp them on the cold, hard ground Oh, oh, tribbles, tribbles, tribbles Oh, oh, tribbles, tribbles, tribbles I didn't know the tribble that I brought in (Tribbles, tribbles, tribbles) I didn't know the tribble that I brought in (Tribbles, tribbles, tribbles)

VERSE 1: Flying in my X-wing as the chrono ticks to certain doom Enemies encircle me, confusion is nothing new Plans were stolen from deep inside Trench run, they come TIE after TIE... VERSE 2: Asteroids surrounding me, I may be in above my head 3720 to 1, I can't hear what you've said We weave and dodge, we must evade Let's land inside that cave CHORUS: You can run, you can hide but they will find you TIE after TIE If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting TIE after TIE VERSE 3: Over the forest moon, the final battle rages on Han will have those shields down, what is taking him so long? Armed and ready, Death Star attacks We learn that it's a trap CHORUS: You can run, you can hide but they will find you TIE after TIE If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting TIE after TIE TIE after TIE TIE after TIE I can't shake him What should I do? And now I've lost Artoo CHORUS: You can run, you can hide but they will find you TIE after TIE If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting TIE after TIE You can run, you can hide but they will find you TIE after TIE If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting TIE after TIE TIE after TIE TIE after TIE TIE after TIE TIE after TIE

VERSE 1: I can show you a world Shiny, pixely, splendid Tell me, princess, now when did You last love the game you played? I can open your eyes 3D graphics a-wonder Watch me as I fight and plunder When I do this raid CHORUS: A virtual world With many different camera views You get to play a role Maybe taunt a troll It's really not demeaning A virtual world It's baffling this is what you choose Now that I see it here It's crystal clear I won't go to this virtual world with you (It's not so bad just look what you can do) VERSE 2: Unbelievable time Wasted here I am reeling As you sit there revealing You're a really nerdy guy CHORUS: A virtual world (Watch me sit here and grind) It's very boring don't you see (Social life, it don't matter) I find this all bizarre We've come so far Don't go back to what you used to be A virtual world (This is not a surprise) With new quests daily to pursue (As you sit and get fatter) Not getting anywhere Now let's be fair I want to/won't share this virtual world with you A virtual world A virtual world That's where we'll be But not with me An online space A useless place For you and me

VERSE 1: Here I start new, I don't want to But I watch them stack First fall slowly, always fool me Then I can't react Games...too many to count How long have I spent? Keep playing them out CHORUS: Can't complete this row, there is a hole I've got no time No more hope, no joy, there's too much choice Won't make it now VERSE 2: Falls too quickly, I feel sickly And I can't go back I can't resist, need a Tetris This is worse than crack I have suffered enough "Stop," I tell myself But I know it’s won CHORUS: Can't complete this row, there is a hole I've got no time No more hope, no joy, there's too much choice Won't make it now Falls too quickly, pieces I can't see I'll win somehow...

Look at this junk It's such a mess It's no surprise that it causes me stress Wouldn't you think he would stop Once he had everything? Look at this room Feels like a tomb You'd think the guy's never heard of a broom Looking around here you'd think Wow, he collects...everything He's got comics and consoles a-plenty Doctor Who stuff, it covers the floor Creepy action figures? There's so many And this house Stuffed so full but He wants more Wants a TV that's as big as a car To hook up a game where he flails about dancin' Jumping around with the - what do call it? Oh - Wii! Invites all these friends who are quite bizarre Going around quoting, yelling, ranting Playing some game called - what's that stupid thing? D&D Up until dawn, they call this fun? Day after day without seeing the sun So I found out, there is no doubt My partner's a nerd Oh I have cried, "Let's go outside, we could go biking!" A walk in the park before it was dark, that would be grand When you are done that Star Trek rerun There's a trail I have found for hiking Up before noon, we could go soon Just take my hand! He grunts and he nods but still plays his game Ask him my questions but get no answers What's otaku and why does he - what's the word? Cosplay? All night and day Wouldn't I love to understand the things he speaks of And what's more you see He's ADHD My partner's a nerd

VERSE 1:
 Just take those old floppies off the shelf 
I'll load them up and play them by myself
 Today's gaming ain't got the same soul
 I like my Commodore 64

 VERSE 2:
 Don't try and give me a Nintendo
 You'll never get me trying other consoles 
Unplug the Xbox, leave it there on the floor
 I like my Commodore 64 CHORUS: 
 Still like that Commodore 64 That kind of gaming just soothes the soul I reminisce about the days of old With my Commodore 64 VERSE 3:
 Won't go near to play a PlayStation 4 I want to harvest food and even smithore Take out your valkyrie with my manticore! All on my Commodore 64

 VERSE 4:
 Call it so Epyx, here's another visitor
 Found Ambrosia in a whirlpool I explored My Cobra Mark III mined an asteroid
 I like that Commodore 64
 CHORUS: Still like that Commodore 64
 Rescued a Kindar in the roots below
 Max helped me battle that AI that went rogue
 All on my Commodore 64

 Still like that Commodore 64
 Blew bubbles in that game by Taito
 I learned to type with words like 'kill troll with sword'
 With my Commodore 64

 Still like that Commodore 64 That kind of gaming just never gets old
 'LOAD "*",8,1' wore out my keyboard
 On my Commodore 64 Still like that Commodore 64
 I nuked a hamster, didn't know what for! Marshmallow Man, couldn't get through the door Just love my Commodore 64

 Can't beat the Commodore 64.... I love my Commodore 64 I adore my 64, my Commodore 64

VERSE 1: If I were an undead crawler (If I were an undead crawler) I would break into your house (I would break through your windows) If I were an undead crawler (If I were an undead crawler) I'd wreck all the furniture in your house (That you fruitlessly piled up against the door) If I were an undead crawler (If I were an undead crawler) You could run but you wouldn't get far (A nice and tasty two-legged meal) If I were an undead crawler I'd bite your leg... CHORUS: If I were an undead crawler I'd hide in the dark waiting in your yard If I were an undead crawler I'd make you scream, wouldn't be that hard If I were an undead crawler Maybe I could make some gurgling noises... VERSE 2: If I were an undead crawler (If I were an undead crawler) We would make a nasty mess (Make a nasty mess of your FACE!) If I were an undead crawler (If I were an undead crawler) I would gnaw on all your pets (Especially the cat, because it deserves it) If I were an undead crawler (If I were an undead crawler) I would savour your remains (Maybe suck on an intestine) If I were an undead crawler I'd chew your arm... CHORUS: If I were an undead crawler You wouldn't guess what we'd have in store If I were an undead crawler There'd be lots of blood and guts and gore If I were an undead crawler You know I don't actually like that, the whole blood thing... VERSE 3: If I were an undead crawler (If I were...I don't want to be an undead crawler) I would feast on the flesh of the living (I don't even like my steak rare) If I were an undead crawler (But I don't want to be an undead crawler) I would tear out your tongue (You know, I had tongue once. It was gross. It was spongy too...) Would you rather be the victim? (Maybe I'd survive the apocalypse) They would target you because you are chunky (What?! No, I don't think I'm chunky!) When I am an undead crawler You'd rip my / I'd rip your flesh... (You know, that just makes me all uncomfortable) CHORUS: If I were an undead crawler (Fine, I'd be an undead crawler) If I were an undead crawler (You'd still be the first one to die) If I were an undead crawler I'd eat brains

about

'CTRL+ALT+DUETS' is the second official album/EP-like thing from musical geek comedy duo Debs & Errol! While 'Songs in the Key of Geek' contains only original songs, this one is all parodies! It features the awesome musical talents of Devin Melanson (recording engineer, instrumentals), Aaron Tsang (mixing, mastering, instrumental bits), Bedford Level Experiment (instrumentals) and Kari Maaren (accordion).

'CTRL+ALT+DUETS' exists because our amazing funders made it so. Score another victory for geek music! We hope you enjoy it.

We'd like to note (because some lovely people have asked) that this is a digital-only release;.
