from Gamera

Written and Arranged by Michael J. Nelson
Transcribed by J.D. Shull and Lisa Jenkins

[On the satellite:]

[Tom Servo talks to a toy turtle in a fishbowl. The bowl spins on a record player on the SOL desk.]

TOM: More fish flakes, sweet friend?

[lights dim, Servo sings]

Oh, Tibby, my Tibby,
My heart is a mess.
I don't have a protective shell
Over my chest.
So people can HURT me
With the cruel things they dooo!
Yet somehow, sweet Tibby,
I know you hurt, too.
Oh, Tibby, my Tibby,
Reality's hard.
So Tibby,
Let's play in the yaaaaaaard!
Oooooooh, Tibby! Oh, Tibby!

[Crow enters]

He runs like the wind.
A couple of inches--aha!--
And then back again!

CROW: Uh, may I take a verse?

TOM: Oooo-doo-doooo. Well, if you feel it, Crow.

CROW: Oh, I--do. Ahem!

TOM: Well, Crow. Then by all means. Join me, won't you?

CROW: 5, 6, 7, 8.



CROW: Oh, sorry. Sorry. Sorry.

I love you my fine lit-tle fellaaa!
Even though you gave the whole fam-i-ly salmonellaaa!

[lights rise, music stops, Joel enters]

TOM: No! No! It's not their fault!

CROW: Hee hee hee hee!

TOM: It isn't their fault! Crow, you take everything good and--! You rip my heart out!!! [sobs]

CROW: Geez, I'm--I'm sorry.

JOEL: C'mon, Crow, let'm finish his song.

CROW: Oh, okay.

JOEL: Go ahead, Tom.

CROW: It's just a stupid ol' turtle.

JOEL: Go ahead, Tom.

[Servo stops crying, lights dim, spotlight on Tibby]

TOM: Thank you, Cambot.

[music begins]

Tibby, my Tibby,
Your blood may be cold,
But I know that your heart
Burns as hot as a coal!
It burns with the love
Only turtles can feel!

Is our love real?

My Tibby, I'll never let the dog nose around your bowl, but you know that don't you? I can see it in your beady, little eyes! If you high-center on your rock, Tibby, I'll be there to help you down!

The toilet's not your fate, friend!
You'll always run freeeeeee!
Long as you have meeeeeeeeeeee!

[music ends]

CROW: D'you realize a robot just sang a love song to a turtle?

JOEL: That was really good, Tom.

TOM: [sob] Thank you.

JOEL: We got Commercial Sign.
