One-chorus-and-verse quickie that I sometimes use as a sound check, inspired by the wonderful final speech by Cave Johnson (J.K. Simmons) in Portal 2

Words by Joseph Abbott
Music: “Burning Down the House,” Byrne/Frantz/Harrison/Weymouth

You think that you can hand me lemons
Watch out — my company does science
They’ll send all your lemons back
Burning down your house

That’s right, you’re dealing with Cave Johnson
That’s right, you’re gonna rue the day now
They will have to find a way
For burning down your house

We do things you’ve never seen, turn your blood to gasoline
Gels and portals are here
My engineers won’t stop until they’ve made your fruit combustible
Lemons burst into fire

This is the bio am I doing this right? Probably not.
