Overlord

by @jtsteam

Liner Notes

A #ukulele #folk song about every superhero/spy movie ever. I think I'll even call it #filk.

In it, an accountant gets fed up and decides to become a supervillain. That's about it, really. #fuc

Lyrics

I'm fed up of working in an office
Doing the accounts
And so I'm going to quit my job, it's
Time for me to announce
That I'm starting my own business
I'll be self-employed
Working on projects with my own objectives
And things that I'll enjoy

I'll work my three months notice
Measuring the stock
Doing the sums and counting the beans while
Watching the clock
I'll still fulfil my duties
And do what they expect
But the thoughts in my head are really directed at
What I'm doing next

There'll be no time to waste and no time to be bored
When I start my new career as an evil overlord
I'll build a secret fortress in a place no-one can find
I'll have my loyal minions and my sidekick mastermind

They'll build me a MacGuffin like a death ray made of gold
And all of the world leaders will be under my control
And right before I execute him, just because I can
I'm going to tell the hero every detail of my plan

So I'm standing in front of the mirror
Practising my laugh
And doing the exercises they taught at
Supervillain class
I've advertised in the paper for some
Henchmen, so when I
Finally meet you, Mr Bond,
I expect you to die

There'll be no time to waste and no time to be bored
When I start my new career as an evil overlord
I'll build a secret fortress in a place no-one can find
I'll have my loyal minions and my sidekick mastermind

They'll build me a MacGuffin like a death ray made of gold
And all of the world leaders will be under my control
And right before I execute him, just because I can
I'm going to tell the hero every detail of my plan

That is a fantastic song, with an oddly relatable story. The production is lush.
