Time's Up! -- Our Losing Entry in the Hatsune Miku Expo 2018 Song Contest
The song was inspired by watching a bunch of YouTube videos of Japanese rock bands in the 1950s and 1960s. Very groovy, man!
We were also greatly inspired by a fantastically snarling performance by Cliff Richard and the Shadows of Move It! on TV.
I got a call saying you wanna meet me in your room, yeah
I'm here just to work so you better not assume, yeah
I'm not the bride and you sure as hell ain't the groom, yeah
You're crazy if you think I wanna watch you take a shower
You've mistaken me for some kind of delicate flower
Time's up old man, you ain't gonna make me cower
We've been keeping silent now for too many years
Exploited and preyed upon and shackled by our fears
here comes the tidal wave baby
it can't be stopped now
Time's up on all of you
Which side will you choose?
On a movie set or in the halls of Congress
We're not gonna put up with any more nonsense
this needs to be more than just a work in progress
We're not gonna let this quietly fade away, yeah
We've got way too much at stake, yeah
Time's up we've gotta make a change yeah
Better move on over, baby, time's up
Did you hear me?
What did I say?
