Getting the Lyrics Right

#1 Posted by JakeLogan (221 posts) -

So, Ronimo just dropped a link over to an extended version of the Awesomenauts Theme Song by Sonic Picnic over Facebook the other day, which you can download from the link over here for the low, low payment of a Tweet or Facebook shout out.

I'm too impatient/lazy to wait/go look for an official lyrics sheet, so I tried to write down the lyrics while listening to the track on continuous loop (surprisingly, it's not stuck in my head but I've got mad cravings to go play).

I'm'a drop this right here for everyone's enjoyment. I know for a fact it's not 100%, but I couldn't figure out anymore words without my brain melting (so many mondegreens), so please Duders and Dudettes drop fixes and suggestions in the comments below. I'll edit this as more skilled audiophiles/80's song enthusiasts lend their powers. Thanks in advance.

Awesomenauts Theme

*Instrumental Intro*

Awe-some! Awe-some! Awesomenauts!x2

Mercenaries join the fight!

Take it star by star!

The target is in sight, we're in for war!

A message to all champions comes from outer space!

To heed the call-to-arms, fulfil your fate!

(And Live Your Dreams)

Know that this time there will be no hiding place!

You can't let them, fighting cannot wait! (?)

This is the Battle you've been waiting for!

You will fight them, Power in your heart to underscore!

Awe-some! Awe-some! Awesomenauts!x2

Mercenaries join the fight!

Take it star by star!

Down before the right(?), we're in for war!

Clunk: TARGET TERMINATED

Leon: All is Fair, in Love and War!

Can you see the fire in their eyes so bright?

Their weapons burst(?), their iron will so strong!

(And-and Awesome!)

Together as a team will surely win the fight!

(They're In-vin-ci-ble!)

This must be the place where we belong!

We can blaze a path across the atmosphere!

Powers breaking loose!; The way to Victory is CLEAR!

Awe-some! Awe-some! Awesomenauts!x2

Mercenaries join the fight!

Take it star by star!

Charge your weapons, hold on tight!

Victory's in sight, it's time for war!

*Guitar/keytar solo*

Awe-some! Awe-some! Awesomenauts!x2

Mercenaries join the fight!

Take it star by star!

Use your powers, show your might!

Win the Cosmic War! The AWESOMENAUTS!
