cracks me up every time since i first saw it 10 years ago long live monty python

And by request.....

I didn't want to be a barber anyway. I wanted to be a Maker.
Crafting from dusk to dawn in the toolshead in my backyard
The power tools, the sandpaper, the sawdust, the miter saw.
The smell of freshly baked bread. The clang of metal being beat.
With fresh batteries by my side. I'd sing....sing...sing...

I'm a Maker and I'm OK
I sleep at night and I hack all day

He's a Maker and he's OK
He sleeps at night and hacks all day

I carve on wood, use a nail punch
I work with L.E.D's
On weekends I'll be working, on electronics I got for free

He carves on wood he'll use a nail punch
he works with L.E.D's
On weekends he'll be working, on electronics he got for free
He's a Maker and he's OK
He sleeps at night and hacks all day

I've cut some wires, I weld some pipes
I learned to press wildflowers
I've made some duck tape clothing, and made some cake in jars

He's cut some wires, he welds some pipes
He's learned to press wildflowers
He's made some duck tape clothing, and made some cake in jars?
He's a Maker and he's OK
He sleeps at night and hacks all day

I've cut some wires, use Altoids tins, paracord and some tires
I wish I had a motor, that wouldn't start wild fires

He's cut some wires, use's Altoids tins, paracord and some tires
He wants to have a motor, that wouldn't start wild fires.

just a suggestion:
change "i love all the paracord" to "and all the paracord"
i just think it sounds better...
sounds sorta familiar...

I know I'm answering myself, but this idea appeals to me. How about people post their own verses, plus links, and then somebody can put together a movie of still shots and clips from ible videos to match the collectively-written song?




see thats what I was really thinking everyone can collaborate (for those who want to) and they can give me pictures or video clips or both.

What if everyone who submits a verse also submits a video clip of them singing that verse while doing the thing in the verse? And then put them all together. We could require that the key and tempo match the Discovery Channel commercial.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Shy people could just submit a voice recording, and Acidbass could put it over a series of matching stills.

Perhaps we can get the instructables team in and they can select some good lyrics which we can sing in?

I'd be happy to do some lyrics :)

Get it recorded, upload the file to your image library, then PM the link to acidbass.

So, write a verse or three of your own, and get your friends to do the same.


Bit cute for my taste, but a possible.  Who'll be on the receiving end of this bit, though?


Your first video has children singing in it...

Very amusing.

Ah, but the cuteness of the kiddies is balanced by the crawling through sewers and eating of invertebrates.

"Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails..."

...and if you're interested, here are the "proper" lyrics:

Astronaut1: It never gets old huh?
Astronaut2: nope
Astronaut1: it kinda makes you wanna…
Astronaut2: break into song?
Astronaut1: yup

I love the oceans
I love real dirty things
I love to go fast

I love the whole world

Gotta make a thing
Gotta make it now
Flashing lights galore
Bells and whistles more

Boom Dee Ahh Dah
Boom Dee Ahh Dah do

Smoke test it just to see
If I should stay or flee
Does it work or detonate
Am I in time or way too late

Boom Dee Ahh Dah
Boom Dee Ahh Dah do

Workbench mess into a thing new
At least that’s the plan for you
May make something oh so odd
Like flashing lamps for my bod

Boom Dee Ahh Dah
Boom Dee Ahh Dah do

thats right
