ODE TO FIGHT THE FUTURE
(or: PEOPLE WITH TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS)
There once were some girls at Orion
Over previews for X they were dyin'
Till one sad day in May
The show ended, but Hey!
A movie would keep them from cryin'!
There once was a building called Showplace
Charged six bucks a head, but on Tuesdays
Just 4 dollars then,
So it wasn't a sin
To keep shelling out dollars in great haste
There once was a G-man named Mulder
"I love you," he should've just told her,
And maybe would he
If not for the damn bee
Causing fury, in Showplace, to smolder
There once was a woman named Scully
Who never did realize her folly
Not to kiss her good friend
'fore the film reached its end
Crushing fans from 'Diego to Raleigh
There once was a damn f*cking bee
Who thought he could just steal the scene
He never forsaw,
Didn't think it at all,
That we'd kill every bee that we see.
There once was a horse at Orion
Who never, now, got to go ridin'
'Cause his rider was gone
From the onset of dawn
'Twas a movie pass she was out buying
There once were some girls from Orion
Over hallway scenes they were just dyin'
Till the movie stopped playing
On the couch they were laying
Till November's premiere stopped their crying.
