A parody of the Portal end-theme, as written

earlier this afternoon. Confused? See this post
for background on the original song.
I've taken a few small liberties with the bleeding lawbot's original lyrics to make it scan a bit better out loud, but it's all cosmetic tweaks.
And the vocals are, of course, nothing to Ellen McLain's. If I'd been taking the time to really do it Right, I'd have used a vocoder to really roboticize my vocals. As it is, I just tried to sing it fairly straight, then compressed the hell out of it, threw on some funky chorus plugin, and EQed it a bit for kicks.
Inspired, in part, by how freakin' awesome the original is; in part by how awesome Valve's output in general lately has been; and in part by new user Soup's eyebrow-raising but innocent enthusiasm in posting about the above the last few days. Hi, Soup
