Can't wait to see the video. Here are the lyrics to the song so all you cats can sing along.

"Tribute"

[spoken]

This is the greatest and best song in the world... Tribute.

Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,

we was hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.

All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon... in the middle... of the road.

And he said:

[sung]

"Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your soul." (soul)

[spoken]

Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other,

and we each said... "Okay."

[sung]

And we played the first thing that came to our heads,

Just so happened to be,

The Best Song in the World, it was The Best Song in the World.

Look into my eyes and it's easy to see

One and one make two, two and one make three,

It was destiny.

Once every hundred-thousand years or so,

When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow

And the grass doth grow...

Needless to say, the beast was stunned.

Whip-crack went his schwumpy tail,

And the beast was done.

He asked us: "(snort) Be you angels?"

And we said, "Nay. We are but men."

Rock!

Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,

Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

This is not The Greatest Song in the World, no.

This is just a tribute.

Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World, no, no.

This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Song in the World,

All right! It was The Greatest Song in the World,

All right! It was the best muthafuckin' song the greatest song in the world.

[2-part skat]

[spoken]

And the peculiar thing is this my friends:

the song we sang on that fateful night it didn't actually sound

anything like this song.

[sung]

This is just a tribute! You gotta believe me!

And I wish you were there! Just a matter of opinion.

Ah, fuck! Good God, God lovin',

So surprised to find you can't stop it.

[skat]

All right! All right!

In case you didn't know, MuchMusic and MusiquePlus are airing Tenacious D's video for "Tribute" (and MP has it as their BuzzClip this week, IIRC).

It's pretty fun. The two of them go into a "Record Your Song" booth at a mall, and once inside go through a re-enactment of what made them write the song to which "Tribute" is a tribute. (The booth shots alternate between the re-enactment and the reality of them inside the booth.) There are also shots of what's going on in the mall while they're recording (with a muffled bleed-thru of the song from inside the booth).

Aloha,

Brad
