I liked the Mega Man 3 one quite a bit, but I just now noticed that I can't hear certain riffs from the MM3 theme without immediately expecting to hear the desperate scream: "HOPE RIDES... ALOOOOONE"

Here is a Tetris with Lyrics that is full of genius history lessons and amazing production values...no sophomoric sexism.

Scrooge McDuck is not a mallard.

And if you're discounting Tetris at all, much less with the most random point of sexism I've ever heard, then your opinion on games is worthless to me.

I saw BrentalFloss last weekend when he emceed at Bit Gen 5. He's a pretty good artist, and a pretty good performer to boot.

The only acceptable lyrics for the Tetris Song are, "The Tetris Song", sung intermittently* and in the style of Andy Kaufman's rendition of Mighty Mouse.

If the song is in a brisk 4/4, the pickup to measure four indicates where the lyrics go: "Dun dun dun dun dun dun | dun dun dun dun dun dun | dun dun dun The | Tetris Song."

Other than the tasteless Tetris song, there are some quite clever lyrics there in the "with lyrics" compilation. Unfortunately, once you've picked up one set of lyrics for the theme it can be hard to hear any other - and the more-known the theme, the more likely it is to already have been done.

A few alternatives:
Rabbit Joint - Legend of Zelda (often, and oddly, misattributed to System of a Down)
Game Over - Little Mac's Confession
The Mario

His rhymes in the Mega Man rendition were ok, but Duane and BrandO did it better.

But the Tetris song is already a Russian folk song, complete with lyrics!
