A song based on a joke based on a movie based on a play based on a legend, as heard in the Weird Video Games episode "Kid Niki (Arcade)" ( youtu.be/3aU67aUWZSU ).


There's something rotten in the city.
Captial of grimdark Denmark's gotten really gritty.
There's a man in a metal exoskeleton,
terrorizing people, turning officers to gelatin.
But there's one MC who struggles.
taking up rhymes against a sea of troubles.
Straight forward or deep and subtle.
Wild, whirling words have you seeing double.
His name is Janks and he's competent and confident.
He's got a mic and a doctorate in rocking it.
He's very talkative, provocative, evocative of all the
philosophical thoughts he's jotted in his pocket of
notepads, to use against crooks and ghost dads.
Been on his primrose path and post grads
with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, and skills he's learned
has him keeping close tabs on those lads.
Folks think his flows mad, thinking makes it so
and it takes its toll on his aching soul,
but to take control of the kingdom back,
he's gonna keep them thinking that, spitting rap
like he's flipped his cap so they'll underestimate him
while he's investigating the murder of the head of state in
Copenhagen so there's no mistaking the motivation
and the misdeed by which the throne of the nation's been overtaken.

Dr. Janks, Hip Hop Crime Fighter:
Dope on the mic vigilante rhyme writer
is here to save the day. If you came to play
foul in Copenhagen you've made a grave mistake.

The play is the thing
that sayeth who slayeth the king.
Not by arrow, a blade nor a sling but the poison
that seeps into his head and destroys him.
Janks gathers his boys and puts on scathing show,
to beats by Horatio.
with a diss track to Claudius that makes you go
"Ohhhh! That's a crazy flow!"
And when things get worse, he's waxing metaphoric
to his sidekick, the beatboxing head of Yorick.
and the more it rims his gorge, he inches towards
the madness he thinks he's forged.
But no matter what, he'll seize all of the bad guys
and be back for the next installment of the franchise.
That's all for now on the subject of Dr. Janks.
