Tripod: Love-Making Music for Gamers

MrBig (who should really start his own blog) showed me this video clip of this Aussie trio called Tripod and at first I thought “OK, another pretty fine acapella group”. Upon listening closer though, something became unmistakably clear. It’s a hilarious love song meant for the hardcore gamer in you! So far I’ve seen references to Halo and Mario Brothers… can you spot more?

Check out their official web site or this tune’s lyrics below…

Tripod: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Scod: Baby,
Tripod: Gonna make you happy tonight.
Yon and Gatesy: Gonna make you happy tonight,
Scod: Oh, sugar.

Tripod: Give my love to you,
Oh baby.
Gonna make you feel so right.
Yon and Gatesy: Gonna make you, make you happy,
Oooh, sugar.
Scod: Yeah!

Tripod: Spend some time with you,
Do the things you want me to.
Scod: Gonna make love…
Yon and Gatesy: Gonna make some sweet, sweet love, sugar.

Tripod: So get ready,
Oooh, get ready, get ready.
Scod: Get ready for lovin’,
Tripod: Tonight.
Yeah, oh.

Before we get down to love,
Yon and Gatesy: Before we get down…
Scod: … I just gotta finish this level.

Yon and Gatesy: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Scod: You see, I got a high…
… score tonight.
Tripod: And I just want to save my game.

Yon and Gatesy: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Scod: Well, I’ll be with you in a minute,
Sweet darling, baby, honey.
Tripod: I love how you dance for me.

Scod: Oooh, la la la la la la la…
Yon and Gatesy: Could you move a little to the left, baby?
Scod: I can’t see the TV.

Yon and Gatesy: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Tripod: Baby, I can’t want ’till we start,
Scod: It’s just that the save points are quite far apart,
In this game, baby.

Yon and Gatesy: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Scod: Oooh, la la la la la la la…
Yon and Gatesy: Doo-doo doo-doo.
Scod: This bit’s got a multi-player section, honey,
Maybe you can operate a turret with me.
Would you like that, baby?
Yon and Gatesy: Doo-doo doo-doo.

Scod: Games give you hand-eye co-ordination,
And spacial intelligence, together with…
Tripod: … map-reading skills.
Scod: Oh, sugar.

Yon and Gatesy: Turn the lights down low…
Scod: Turn the lights down, just a little bit lower, baby.
Yon and Gatesy: Turn the lights down low…
Scod: Turn the lights down low.
Yon and Gatesy: Turn the lights down low…
Scod: It’s just that it helps me feel like I’m in a spaceship.

Tripod: Sweet, sweet love,
Yon: Honey…
Scod: Sugar…
Gatesy: Baby…

Tripod: Oooh, you look so great to me.

… Baby.
Have you brushed your teeth yet?

Take your time, no hurry.
It’s just that I’m not tired.
Are you tired?

I’ll see you in the bed, then.
You might want to take a book.

Scod: Baby…
Yon and Gatesy: Ooo ooo ooo,
You’re so fine, baby.

Scod: You know I can’t stop thinking about you, baby.
And all of the magic coins that I need to collect.

Yon and Gatesy: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Scod: See, I just gotta find one more point of armour class,
And then I can take on the robots of Zirgon B,
And then we can make love…

Yon and Gatesy: Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Doo doo, doo doo,
Doo-doo doo-doo.

Tripod: I think this X-Box,
Scod: Is the best present I ever bought for you,
Baby!

  1. I caught these guys on TV last year. They’re decent singers — it’s awesome when they hit that first gamer lyric, though, and the the song shifts from uninspired love song to a weird but funny X-Box ode.

  2. Tripod are SO clever with what they do. They can make anything funny. The true title of this song is ‘Gonna Make You Happy Tonight’. A personal favourite, Scod finally doesn’t have to play the guitar!!! ­čÖé
