Song Parody Contest
1st place

 

by Charlotte Dekany, Grade 8

 

Brief explanation of the lyrics:

A Pokèmon Trainer is battling the Champion of the Pokemon League in Pokemon X/Y. He has her down to her last fighting Pokemon, but he’s down to one himself – an Espeon that seems to be his secondary battler. Espeon’s low on health, but the trainer used all the healing items he bought on his primary Pokemon, Mega Lopunny. The trainer resorts to using the healing move Morning Sun, which Espeon only knows because the trainer thought it would be cool to have it know Espeon’s signature move.

 

The main verses are from the Espeon’s point of view, and the chorus is from the trainer’s point of view.

Pokèmon Parody of “True Faith” by New Order

 

I feel so extraordinary
Something’s shining down on me
I get this feeling I’ve just rested
A sudden rush of energy

You now care ’cause you’re up there
We both hope you’re not there tomorrow
Again and again, I’ve needed too much
Of the milk that cost you so much

I used to think that the day would never come
I’d have to use the move Morning Sun
The morning sun is the drug that heals my team
From the super-effective Dazzling Gleam
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the Espeon

When I was a tiny Eevee
Tiny Eevees played with me
Now that we’ve evolved together
They’re afraid of what they see

‘Twas the price you had to pay
To heal your precious Mega bunny
I can’t tell you what went wrong
I guess it fought strong Pokèmon

I used to think that the day would never come
I’d have to use the move Morning Sun
The morning sun is the drug that heals my team
From the super-effective Dazzling Gleam
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the Espeon

I feel so extraordinary
Something’s shining down on me
I get this feeling I’ve just rested
A sudden rush of energy

The chances are we’ve gone too far
The Moomoo Milks took all your money
Now I feel you’ve left me standing
Against a champ that’s so demanding

I used to think that the day would never come
I’d have to use the move Morning Sun
The morning sun is the drug that heals my team
From the super-effective Dazzling Gleam
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the Espeon

I used to think that the day would never come
I’d have to use the move Morning Sun
The morning sun is the drug that heals my team
From the super-effective Dazzling Gleam
I used to think that the day would never come
I’d have to use the move Morning Sun.
