  • Favorite things in Civ

    (Sung to the similar tune from Sound Of Music)
    Cavalry charging, and howitzers blazing
    Infantry marching, and stealth bombers razing
    Seagoing transport ships full of marines
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Fortified legions, and wars for peace keeping
    City improvements, and nights without sleeping
    Citizens crying out, "We love the King!"
    These are a few of my favorite things

    When the walls break,
    When the bombs drop,
    When the air-raid sounds
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And hope my AkAk...
    Has rounds

    Pyramids, Lighthouse, and Great Wall all pending
    Republic governments increasing spending
    Manhattan Project and all that it brings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    When the nukes launch
    When the globe warms
    When the Celts are dead
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And face the workday...
    With dread....

    Merry Christmas all

    that's beautiful! ^_^

    my favorite things are the sound of tromping feet as i march into a captured city, and that special, magical moment when the city's name appears half in the enemy civ's color and half in my color. especially if it's the capital of the most powerful civ and contains nine or ten wonders. ha ha.

      I say, that's pretty good.

      How much time did you spend putting that piece together Orcus?

        As I read this, I am moved to tears(snif)...

        Orcus, your talents are wasted as a consultant. FOLLOW YOUR DREAM, BABY!

            Werefox, thanx :-)

            Dom, about ten minutes to actually compose it. Had the show tune in my head all day, but I don't know the words so I started thinking, hmmm....

            Theben, ummm, my dreams are pretty weird, dude, that would get me into trouble...

            Senor Temba, have at it. If there are any requests for further parodies, I've got about a thousand under my belt from my teenage years, I'd be happy to do more (provided I know the song you're talking about). If they're not about Civ, I'll have to move to the off-topic forum.

              (inspired by Orcus, Jesse tries in vain to write a song...)

              Units that aren't orange
              And bombs that.... CRAP!

              Oh well... so much for my song... My favorite thing is actually (looks down in shame) the foreign minister chick on the city council when she has a russian accent...

                That's funny! I like her best in a Toga. "...there will be time enough to betray them later..." Rrrrrrowf! Rowf! Oh, ahem, sorry.

                  I love parodies, espescially the ones in MAD. But if you have any more I'd like to hear them. Espescially if they are about civ!

                      Jesse,

                      I must also shamefully admit that I enjoy
                      that "aspect" of Civ 2 also. We are sad. ;-)

                      So when is the "adult" version of Civ 2 coming out? Tyra Banks will be my "happiness" advisor.

                          The Foriegn Minister "chick" has a name: she is a talented actress called April Cantor.
                          I believe that those sick enough to want to make love to someone on a stragety computer game better get a social life - there is a huge world outside the Internet and your job/education.

                          Communism and totalitarilism go like cheese and wine - prevention of sick people and prostituition leads to a happy society.

                          Das Wasser soll dein Spiegel sein
                          Erst wenn es glatt ist, wirst du sehen
                          Wieviel Märchen dir noch bleibt
                          und um Erlösung wirst du flehen.

                          The water shall be your mirror
                          Only when it's smooth you will see
                          How much fairy-tale is left for you
                          And you will beg for deliverance.

                              Comrade Dan, are you a communist?
                              Am I (The original) not alone in my quest to impose a new govt. type?
                              Quite frankly, I'm actually an anarchist...
                              But communism is the closest thing so far!
