Mortal Kombat Extraordinaire

Now this is a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the Mortal Kombat Extraordinaire!

In East Flagstaff born and raised
In the anime club is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And playing Shadow Run with friends after school
When a couple of DDR nerds were up to no good
Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little dace off and my mom got scared
And said you're gonna be a Mortal Kombat Master Extraordinaire!

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she placed me in front of the Nintendo and made me play
She kicked my butt with Raiden said that was the ticket
I put on my Zelda sweater and said I might as well kick it
First round of the game was going bad
My mom was royally kickin' my ass
Is this what a gamer's life is supposed to be like
Sitting in front of the TV screen all day and night?

But wait I hear they're kings, have YouTube channels and all that
Is this the type of game I should be the best player at?
I'll see when I do flying high kicks in the air
At the game convention as the Mortal Kombat extraordinaire!

Well uh the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude looked like a cosplayer standin' there with my name out
I ain't tryin' to get in costume yet I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightening disappeared

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said "Johnny Cage", and had Pikachu in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought nah forget it, yo home to the convention as the Mortal Kombat extraordinaire!

I pulled up to the convention about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie, "Yo Holmes, smell ya later!"
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Mortal Kombat extraordinaire!
