about

I do a lot of songs about video games, but this is my first track about tabletop gaming, specifically the game of Dungeons and Dragons.

This track is a parody of 2009's "Run This Town" by Jay-Z featuring Rihanna and Kayne West and features the musical talents of The Stacey in the Rihanna role and the Kayne West of the dementia scene, Devo Spice.

lyrics

[Intro - The Stacey]

Friends are comin' over now
Can't be scared when it goes down
I'm addicted to this game
Dice and pencils all around
All show up except for one
His campaign we were to run
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this game tonight...
Is who's gonna run this game tonight...
We gonna run this game

[Verse 1 - Insane Ian]

Ian's
Gonna be the
DM
I'm the dungeon master
Gonna play all weekend
Gotta let the geeks in
They snack everything
Chex Mix, Cheese Nips
All snacks, everything
Gonna find the treasure chest
Ridin' on an epic quest
Got my lucky D6
If you ready, roll initiative
Boosting my charisma
I'll explain later
But for now let me get back to this paper
I got a couple stats down, now it's time that we attack
I gave Doug the motion, get the potion from his pack
I'm gonna roll me a
sixteen
Seventeen
Hell yeah
You know it's official
When I cast magic missile
Like a pistol

[Chorus - The Stacey]

Sometimes this game, it moves so slow
I read the rules but I don't know
So I keep doin' my own thing
Walkin' 'round in this campaign
Victory's within my grasp
All these spells I have to cast
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna win this game tonight
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
(Is who's gonna win this game tonight)

[Verse 2 - Insane Ian]

We roll
Yeah I said it
We roll
Gotta battle these trolls
Down a dark deep hole
Where ain't nobody goes
Please pass the Doritos
Mountainside prison
My bros fightin' these foes
We knows...
(Cough! Cough!)
We'll sneak past this jailer
And I...think
(Ah!)
I need my inhaler
On our feet we're screamin' at Gordon, read that engraving slow
As he walked over a trap and now he needs a saving throw (No!)
And he ain't earning XP
He should throw his sheet away
'Cause he lost all his HP... (Damn!)
Just to see what's down the hall
So we all grab our books and check the Monster Manual (Yeah!)

[Chorus - The Stacey]

Love this game but don't know how
We've played for nine hours now
Rolling dice with these dorks
Killing trolls and fighting orcs
Just when the game's 'bout to end
My older brother Tom walks in
Only thing that's on my mind
Is he's gonna wreck this game tonight
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
(And he's gonna wreck this game tonight)

[Verse 3 - Devo Spice]

It's crazy how you nerds keep playing this game
That you can't even see how much it is lame
Spending all day long on your campaign
Photos posted up at the big geek hall of fame
Dice rolling, Everybody LOL-ing
You should try to play a sport, maybe bowling
All you do is sit & talk about strolling
'least you're not LARPing, you silly frikkin' halfling
But I know that if I just walked past
And leave you geeks with the spells that you cast
I'd never get to say how much you are out classed
Can you see how you are to me by contrast?
I'm clearly more mature than you, look at my ass
And up top, unh...a thin moustache
Whle you hack and slash, I'll take your lunch cash
All your figurines look like junk trash
Look at all the miniatures carrying nice flags
I see what you're spending, I think I need an ice bag
Thirty dollars on dice? You need to check the price tags
You thought Crown Royal made dice bags!
Is that a wizard, huh? Man, your cloak reeks
He is a mage? What?! Look at these geeks
There's a troll down this hole
So much intrigue!
Now s'cuse me while I check my
Fantasy football league

[Closing - The Stacey]

Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
We gonna run this game tonight!
