The eighth track of Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog’s Commentary: The Musical, Ninja Rope. Sung by Jed Whedon, Neil Patrick Harris, and Nathan Fillion.
Jed: There’s a game,
On my phone,
That I sometimes like to play when I’m alone.
Go to Google,
Type it in,
Click the “Extreme Edition”,
And in moments you’ll begin and you’ll be thinking,
“This is dope”
All: We did not,
NF: I thought Neil was given far too many songs. (Ninja Ropes)
NPH and NF: Both threw insults at each other,
NPH: – Told you how I f**ked your mother –
NPH and NF: – But what made us tight as brothers
and forever, one would hope,
All: Ninja Ropes…
Careful as you hurtle from one circle to the next,
Sometimes double back to dodge the gravity vortex.
Two ropes is the key to keep from wheelin’ way too far.
Nathan holds the record:
NF: One-ninteen-point-seven yards…
NPH: Now the shoot is complete
All: And into our separate lives we do retreat
NPH: But instead of Solitaire,
NF: Sinking deep into despair,
All: It reminds us the connection that we share and helps us cope,
You’ve got just one life
to fly and dive from place to place. (Ai-hai…)
Don’t ask why a ninja can survive in outer space. (Ai-hai…)
Friends say, “Hey, man, can I have a go?” And I say “Nope” (Yeah, Yeah Yeah)
Simple in its gameplay,
And yet epic in its scope.
Ninja Ropes… (NF babbles something here)
Ninja Ropes… (NPH: Swing, little man… swing and fly so high!
Ninja rope… Ninja rope is swingin’, yeah!)
Guitar: Ninja Ropes… I like Ninja Ropes… I like Ninja Ropes… Ninja Ropes…
