Dearly Beloved...

We are gathered here 2day 2 get through this thing called life


Atlantic word, "life," it means 4ever and that's a mighty long time,


But I'm here 2 tell U something...

There's something else.

The surface world...

A beautiful world of never-ending consumption and U can always see the surface men


Day or night...

And if the undercurrent tries to break U down,


Get Wavy


And drop a fathom down...!


If U don't like--the world U're living in


Take a look around


Least U got fins


I got a hate on


For the whole surface world


Got a big prawn,


For the Invisible Girl,

Hey now are U gonna let the undercurrent take U down?


Oh, no let's go!


Let's get way-hey-vey,


Let's get moist!


Let's look for the purple sea snake


'Til the mermaids all rejoice...

[Purple Reign]

NAMORITA: That was a righteous set, cousin!

DORMA: Truly, my love, you were very "rockin." The crowd was very much "hot!"

PRINCE NAMOR: Screw that, I command thee! How is the Avenging Son's hair?

DORMA: Your hair is very high, my love.

NAMORITA: It's the highest in all Atlantis!

DORMA: It piles high like the black smoking towers in the Marianis Trench, and it is ever so greasy, just like the surface man in that movie, this I vow.

NAMOR: ...And my pants? R they both tight and feminine? Is the view of my rear simply 2, 2, 2 mouth-watering? Do not attempt 2 lie 2 a scion of Atlantis!

DORMA: Oh, yes, my love. Your trousers both revealing and strangely-womanly...

NAMOR: Ur words reek of deceit!

NAMORITA: No, no, it's true, cousin. And you totally rocked the room, too!

NAMOR: Well...it is difficult 2 rock this room. While my people r far advanced in many ways beyond the cursed surface-dwellers, it is true that they do not yet understand the meaning of a "dance club." Little do they understand the value of glitter paint.

ATTUMA: AHA! So the pathetic, weak princeling believes he has a hot band, eh? Sit back and watch how a REAL superstar does it!

MERMAN MC: Ladies and gentleman: ATTUMA AND THE TIME.

ATTUMA: Do the fish! Squack! Hallelujah! Woah woah woah woah!

[Purple Reign --------------]

ABALONE: Hey, man, don't listen to that big jerk. I really dug your song.

NAMOR: Owwwah! Truly, U r watta-tight, lovesexycool, aiyaya!

ABALONE: My name's Abalone. I'm a pretty good singer and dancer...maybe you could use me?

Namor hops onto a passing megaladon...

NAMOR: Get on.

[Purple Reign --------------]

ABALONE: This is nice, riding with you, Namor.

NAMOR: I have decreed that I shall now be called the Artist Formerly Known As Prince Namor.

ABALONE: Well...okay. Sorry. You know, at first, I was like all the other Atlanteans--I was confused by your obsession with this bizarre surface-world musician, what with the hair and the ridiculous clothes...

NAMOR: Do not mock the Purple One! Truly does he exemplify the funk!

ABALONE: Yeah, yeah, of course...sorry. I didn't mean anything by it. I just meant that, now I see that you're trying to reach out to the young ones...

NAMOR: I command U 2 disrobe and jump in2 the waters of Abyssal Minnetonka!

ABALONE: Let me guess, this is some sort of initiation I need to pass to get into the band, right?

NAMOR: Er...alrightie!

[Purple Reign --------------]

DORMA: Namorita?

NAMORITA: Yes, Dorma.

DORMA: Is the water warm enough?

NAMORITA: Yes, Dorma.

DORMA: Shall we begin?

NAMORITA: Yes, Dorma.


DORMA: I was swimming when I wrote this, forgive me if I go downstream
NAMORITA: But Namor saw this movie and because he is our liege supreme...
NAMOR: ...Now U all must dress like pirates, all in puffy shirts and seven-inch heels...

And party on the dance floor like u're mating with electrical eels...

ALL: Cause they say two thousand zero zero global warming Oops!

Outta time!

And 2night we're gonna party like it's nineteen eighty-nine.

[Purple Reign --------------]

NAMOR: For the last time, the Avenging Son shall not play ur stupid songs!

DORMA: But, my love...!

NAMORITA: You know, you can really hurt people. Doesn't that make you feel like kelp?

NAMOR: ...U do not understand. Atlantean youth...they are no longer concerned with the old ways. And because of the brilliance of Prince's music, I am able to warn them of the dangers of the surface world. Now I command U 2 shut up and look for my mascara.

[Purple Reign --------------]

NAMOR: Dig if u will this picture...


A surface man engaging a net...


Murdering thousands of dolphins


Cowards, my darling, they don't even need 2 get wet...

Touch if you will my ankles,


Feel my trembling wings


U got 2 wonder how I can manage


2 fly at all on the strength of these dinky-ass things...

How can they just throw their garbage


In2 the shimmering sea?


Why do they worship the rainforest


Why doesn't Sting do a benefit for me?

Maybe I'm just like my mother,


The surface world I can't deny...


Why do we war with each other?


This is what is sounds like, when fish fry.

[Purple Reign --------------]

NAMORITA: Cousin! Abalone has been eaten by an eel!

NAMOR: It is sad 2 hear, but the show must go on...IMPERIUS SEX!

DORMA: EVERYBODY DANCE!

NAMOR: I was singing in a show a thousand fathoms below


When she swam her way on up 2 the bar


My hair stood up because, it was just like the buzz


When I plugged in my electric guitar

It seems that she was busy wearin' something close 2 nothin'


She woulda made a heavenly meal


Deep under the ocean, I got the same notion


As a hornified and hungry eel

Ate by a raspberry moray...

The kind U thought... wouldn't do U no harm

A raspberry moray...

And isn't it cruel the way he chewed off her arm...

A raspberry moray...

It ate my lov-oh, oh-ver!

[Purple Reign --------------]

A YABS REMINDER: Thousands of Atlanteans are killed every year by plastic soda can holders. Throw them in the forest, where they belong!
