I’m on a Blimp
Dragon*ConTV feat. The Extraordinary Contraptions
Lyrics by Brian Richardson, Stephen Granade and David Tyberg

Aww yeah, get your goggles ready it’s about to go up
Everybody in the parlor get ready to dab it up
Dragon*ConTV about to let it fly
We blimpin’ this, let’s fly

I’m on a blimp
I’m on a blimp
Everybody look at me ’cause I’m floatin’ on a blimp
I’m on a blimp
I’m on a blimp
Take a good hard look at the motherfraking blimp

I’m on a blimp dollymop oh take a look up high
Straight flowing all above ya in a wide blue sky
Crusin through the sky on a big airship
You can’t stop me bloody wanker cause I’m on a blimp

Take a daguerreotype
I’m gonna blimp it
We drinking earl grey hot
With our crumpets
I got my long coat
And my google-goggles
I’m all steampunk, you in a mall
at Hot Topic

You ain’t a steampunk, you’re full of poppycock
I got steam babe, keep the boiler temperature hot
Go around the world, eighty days is too long
Look at my blimp fool and listen to this dope ass song

I’m on a blimp now
Runnin’ gear power
You need a Google Map
Just to find your shower
I’m the king of the skies
Straight hot air blimpin’
You’re all under the trees
While I’m here big pimpin’

(spoken) I say, that blimp is quite legitimate

Frak land, I’m on a blimp in the sky
Frak space, my ship’s up so high
When I say I fly you say balderdash
But I’m up above ya with a sweet mustache

Jules Verne, if could see me now
My extraordinary league would take a bow
Gonna float this blimp to the moon somehow
Babbage and Lovelace, anything is possible

Yeah, never thought I’d fly on a blimp
It’s a stratospheric trip
Look at me, oh


Never thought I’d see the day
When a airship coming my way
Believe me when I say
I led an air raid

I’m on a blimp
I’m on a blimp
Everybody look at me ’cause I’m floatin’ on a blimp
I’m on a blimp
I’m on a blimp
Take a good hard look at the motherfraking blimp
