Anime Songs – The Night Shinji Went Crazy

The Night Shinji Went Crazy

Sung to the tune “The Night Santa Went Crazy” by Weird Al Yankovic
Lyrics by Michael Proctor, Copyright 2002

Down in NERV HQ all the guys were doin’ tests
On the plug-suited girls and the plug-suited boys
When the next child busted in, nearly scared ’em half to death
Had a rifle in his hands and cheap whiskey on his breath
From his tie to his boots he was covered with ammo
Like a big fat drunk disgruntled Angel Rambo
And he remembered his mother, as a tear left his eye
‘It’s her anniversary today – now you’re all gonna die!’

The night Shinji went crazy
The night 3rd child went insane
May as well of done another impact
Something finally must of snapped in his brain

Well, the schoolyard is gone now, he decided to bomb it
Everywhere you’ll find pieces of Toji and Aida
And he tied up the students and he held the teacher hostage
And he ground up poor Hikari into pieces of sausage
He got Misato and Kaji with an old German Luger
And he slashed up Ayanami just like Freddy Krueger
And he picked up a flamethrower and he barbequed Maya
And he fired more shots then shouted ‘I could do this all day-a!’

The night Shinji went crazy,
The night Ikari went nuts, now ya
Can’t hardly walk around the geofront
Without stepping in penguin guts

There’s the National Guard and the F.B.I.
There’s a van from the CBN News
And helicopters circlin’ ’round in the sky
And the bullets are flyin’, the body count’s risin’
And everyone’s dyin’ to know, oh Shinji, why?
My my my my my my
You used to be such a reserved guy

Yes, Aoba, now Shinji’s doin’ time
In a German prison for his infamous crime
Hey, little friend, now don’t you cry no more tears
He’ll be out with good behavior in 700 more years
But now Ritsuko’s in therapy and Gendo’s still nervous
And the MAGI system has been put out of service
And they say Asuka, she’s on the phone every night
With her lawyer negotiating the movie rights

They’re talkin’ bout – the night Shinji went crazy
The night the Eva pilot flipped
Broke his back for some curried noodles
Sounds to me like he was tired of gettin’ gypped

Wo, the night Shinji went crazy
The night 3rd Child went insane
Realized he’s gettin’ a raw deal
Something finally must have snapped in his brain
Wo, something finally must have snapped in his brain
Tell ya, something finally must have snapped… in his brain.
