Lizard Disco

("Hey, guess what! This song is sung by someone else than me. It's Milli Pilli! And soon we all get to dance!")
 
The gig is over
I feel restless
The swinging ship is trying to lull me to sleep in vain
With my hair standing on end
I leap out of bed
I peek out into the silent hallway
Like a sea urchin
I secretly sneak out to the disco
I assume everyone else is still snoring in their cabins
But by the lemonade counter
I find my band
Everyone's been hoping for some excitement
 
A new kind of rhythm is beckoning me
Infecting me with disco fever
Let's clap together! ("Yeah!")
 
Yeah, the lizard disco is kicking off
Let's everyone dance together
When our tails are wiggling
Even the tensest ones will begin to relax
This is fun, isn't it?
 
("Even Muffi Puffi is dancing like a three-legged moose! Quite the ballerina! Yeah, yeah, I'm feeling this groove! But I wonder what happens next?")
 
Enthralled by the dance
In the flashing lights
We go around in a circle on the dance floor
Mister Hevisaurus
With his hair over his face
Knocks over a lemonade on the table ("Whoops!")
Poor Muffi Puffi
Got his paw stuck in the gunk
And it started off a terrible multi collision
And so, that each and every one
Fall on their snouts
Everyone's tails and toes all mixed up ("Oh no!")
 
The lizards guffaw with laughter
When the green knot is untangled
It's time to clap together again! ("Oh yeah!")
 
Yeah, the lizard disco is kicking off
Let's everyone dance together
When our tails are wiggling
Even the tensest ones will begin to relax, won't they?
Yeah, the lizard disco keeps on going
We'll bounce like kangaroos until morning
The sun rises
And everyone says hello to it, oh yeah!
 
Now disco and rock music are playing
A seagull crashes into the disco ball
It was cooked into a meal by a cook
Who has a very fancy tuxedo
Ready to go, rough and tumble
We're all grooving, and still the smile
Widens
What an infectious smile! ("Time to rock!")
 
Yeah, the lizard disco is kicking off
Let's everyone dance together
When our tails are wiggling
Even the tensest ones will begin to relax, won't they? ("Lookin' good!")
Yeah, the lizard disco keeps on going
We'll bounce like kangaroos until morning
The sun rises
And everyone says hello to it, oh yeah! ("One more time!")
Yeah, the lizard disco is kicking off
Let's everyone dance together
When our tails are wiggling
Even the tensest ones will begin to relax, won't they? ("Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!")
Yeah, the lizard disco keeps on going
We'll bounce like kangaroos until morning
The sun rises
And everyone says goodbye to it ("Bye-bye!")
We'll come back here again for sure!
 
Lizard disco!
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

The title and subject of this song contain a sort of joke or play on words. Colloquially, "liskodisko" or "liskojen yö" ("the night of the lizards") refers to a powerful hangover or detox that persists overnight and disturbs one's sleep. This song, however, is taking the expression literally, as an actual disco for actual lizards.

"Etukeno" ("forward leaning/slanted") usually refers to some kind of forward-thinking attitude or initiative, but in the context of this song, it could also be taken to refer to moshing or headbanging.

Yoarastrophe, this is DSM. I might have forgotten that Herra Hevisaurus says something right after "Ja tarttuu jokaiseen", at the end of the solo and through the last choruses. Do with that as you may.

Hey Yoroastrophe. I see you've added the spoken parts in the last choruses.
Are you able to put them in Finnish so I can add them to my lyrics?
