I’ve always enjoyed writing parodies to music. I love the challenge of seeing if I could change any song into something different by picking a topic and a song and seeing what happens. One of my other great loves is the game Magic: The Gathering. I decided I wanted to see what I could do with some songs if I changed the lyrics to something about my favorite game.

While driving a few days ago I heard the song, Hey There, Delilah, by Plain White T’s. I have always enjoyed the simple melody of the song and the way it’s presented. I thought to myself, I want this as the first MTG parody I do! I immediately started brainstorming ideas for the song and ended up focusing on a card called Titania, Protector of Argoth. The name fit easily into the song. After that it was trying to come up with lyrics, listening to the timing, listening to the original song (which can be found here:  Hey there, Delilah ) over and over again, then trying my hand at singing.

Sadly, after two bouts of bronchitis I’m not nearly as good of a singer as I used to be, but at least I know enough about music to sing the lyrics and get the timing down. And now, I get to share all that hard work with you wonderful people. Here are the lyrics for my song parody, Hey there, Titania. I hope you enjoy.


Hey there, Titania
You’re my fav’rite new commander
I’ve tried thousands other creatures
But you’ll be the one I’ll feature
Yes it’s true
This deck is focused around you
It’s all bout you

Hey there, Titania
Have a bunch of elementals
Yes you lose some land to get them
But you’ll find they are essential
And besides
Those lands will return by surprise
They never die

Oh, I’m playing mono green
Oh, the ramping scene is keen
Oh, I’m playing mono green
Oh, the ramping scene is keen
The ramping scene is keen

Hey there, Titania
You’ve got creatures with landfall
but don’t forget effects Or you’ll regret
the missed triggers and all The other ways
In which you could have made the plays
That saved the day

Hey there, Titania
I’ve got all these cards to play
and Everyone one of them is land fetch
So I’ll thin my deck away until I draw
The cards to leave them all in awe
at what they saw

Oh, I’m playing mono green
Oh, the ramping scene is keen
Oh, I’m playing mono green
Oh, the ramping scene is keen

A hundred cards seems not enough
for ramp, enchants and global buffs
and all the other token making ways
Enchantments that can double down
And make our token swarm abound
to smash all of the creatures in our way
Titania, I can promise you
for every single land we threw
We’ll get them from the grave and into play
They’ll save the day

Hey there, Titania
You’re so good, you just amaze me
Two more wins and you’ll have shown them all
that you’re the best commander that I knew
I knew as soon as I saw you
You’d be the deck to see me through
They there, Titania, here’s to you
This win’s for you

Oh, I’m playing mono green
Oh, the ramping scene is keen
Oh, I’m playing mono green
Oh, the ramping scene is keen
I’m playing mono green.
