Penguin Dreams(Inspired by my sleep-deprived mind hearing Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Christmas Dreams" for the nth time.)
The reviews are all in
and theyve all come back swell.
The theatres are packed
and the tickets they sell.
The folks are flocking down to their theatres
because penguin films are so groovy.
And if this continues as the trend
I want penguins in every movie!
Ol Don Bluth was a visionary
when he went and made penguins his stars.
He foretold the way we should all go
if we want to drive expensive cars.
Yes, if you want to make some quick money
then shoot a cute penguin flick.
Just be sure that its family-friendly
and focus on the little chicks.
Now I want those tuxedos in prime time.
I want to see the ice and the snow.
And if the shows do as well as the movies,
those lard butts will win Golden Globes.
Lets get Opus to star in the series
Its not as far-fetched as it seems.
Our feathery friends will make us all rich.
And all thanks to folks pen
