Mystery Science Theatre Picture Show

from Carpe Dementia by the great Luke Ski



A parody of "Science Fiction/Double Feature" by Richard O'Brien, about the television show Mystery Science Theater 3000.


(In the not too distant future next Sunday A.D.
God said let there be cheese and there was and it was good)

Dr. Forrester’s dream way down in deep thirteen
Execute his master plan (Master Plan!)
In green lab-coats with flare, a streak of white in his hair
And TV’s Frank his right hand man (Yay! TV’s Frank!)
Bad movies unfold for Mike Nelson and Joel
While they’re caught in a satellite can (Yay! Can!)
Needed a real head case shot them to (Where?!) outer space (Thank You!)
And this is how the credits ran

Mystery Science (la la la) Theater 3000
Dr. X (la la la)
Deep Space Hausen
See small droids watching (la la la) cheesy movies
Comedy Central (la la la) was really groovy
Wo oh oh oh oh oh
At the Mystery Science Theater Picture Show
(Tom Servo has no freaking neck!)

I know Gypsy and Cambot are not seen a whole lot
They’re helping the ship stay in flight (Eeh Eeh!)
And you know my heart sank when I saw Tv’s Frank
Fade away along with Torgo the White (Torgo! Torgo!)
Tom Servo and Crow both watch the show
while making quips known by their fans (Chief McCloud)
Dr. Forrester’s mad though, he’s not unlike Manos
He’s holding their fate in his hands, On The

Mystery Science (la la la) Theater 3000
Kim Cattrall (la la la) is quite arousing
The Oscar Academy (la la la) is not awarding
The movies made by (la la la) Burt I. Gordon
Wo oh oh oh oh oh
On The Mystery Science Theater Picture Show
With Tom Servo and Crow
On The Mystery Science Theater Picture Show
Thought up my Joel, from Minneso
On The Mystery Science Theater Picture Show
(Where’s The Best Place To Watch!)
In The Front Row
Let’s Go
To The Mystery Science Theater Picture Show
