http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsRHDdHsFo8 from 15:14 to 18:43

These lyrics were written by Benjamin Cook (ninebrassmonkeys on YouTube) to the tune of ‘I Am the Very Model of a Modern-Major General’ from GILBERT & SULLIVAN’S 1879 comic opera The Pirates of Penzance. I do not own this song. I was procrastinating and thought I could do this. Do with it what you will.

Kickthepj: (sung) I am the very model of a YouTube individual, I’ve information, vegetable, animal and mineral, I know my YouTube history, sxephil to BertieG, I didn’t choose this so-called YouTube life, the YouTube life chose me. Pikachu’s my homeboy and my bedroom is our picaroon, my sensitive side and big green eyes and accent make the fangirls swoon, my ‘Sleepover with Crabstickz vid’ is teeming with a lot’o views. (spoken) A lot of views, shoes… kangaroos? AHA! (sung) The homosexual undertones make big waves on the shipping news!

ninebrassmonkeys + khyan: (sung) The homosexual undertones make big waves on the shipping news, the homosexual undertones make big waves on the shipping news, The PJ/Crabstickz slash fic thing makes big waves on the shipping shipping NEWS!

Kickthepj: (sung) My videos might sometimes seem absurdly hallucinatory, but my drugs of choice are tea and chocolate, tea and cake and then more tea. In short, in matters vegetable, animal and mineral, I am the very model of a YouTube individual!

-pause-

ChewingSand: (sung) I can recite the Hundred Most Subscribed and quote accounts historical, from charlieissocoollike to Sam Pepper, JacksGap, Dan and Phil. I’ve watched all of slomozovo and thumbed up his vids just for the craic, but Marcus Butler’s ‘Shit Girls Do’ is precious time I won’t get back! I’ve tripped the light fantastic for ‘Good Morning Sunshine”s Alex Day. Unnecessary Otter is my taxidermic protégé! My audience retention stats are amongst the best I’ve ever seen… (spoken) keen, mean, obscene. HA! I’ve got it! (sung) And the otter’s crazy famous now like mad boss Jack from Jack and Dean!

itswaypastmybedtime + nerimon: (sung) The otter’s crazy famous now like mad boss Jack from Jack and Dean, the otter’s crazy famous now like mad boss Jack from Jack and Dean, the otter’s crazy internet famous now like mad boss Jack from JACK AND DEAN!

ChewingSand: (sung) I’ve more Irish charm than Steven Byrne and bigger balls than Bribryontour, I’ve covered songs by Sheeran and sung that infernal nonsense ‘Pinafore’. In short, in matters vegetable, animal and mineral, I am the very model of a YouTube individual. (spoken in style of Marcus Butler) HELLO.

dicasp + MarcusButlertv: (spoken in style of Marcus Butler) HELLO!

Kickthepj: (sung) I’ve slurped more English tea than any man from here to Timbuktu, and now girls want to marry me, and it seems that a fair few boys do, too. 

ChewingSand: (sung) Analytics prove that guns don’t kill YouTubers, ‘dislikes’ do, so the ‘H’ upon my chest isn’t ‘H’ for Hazel it’s ‘H’ for FUCK YOU!

Kickthepj: (sung) If you kicked out ‘kickthepj’ who’d tell stories brave and whimsical?

ChewingSand: (sung) If you spat out ‘chewingsand’ who’d make sure otter remained invincible?

Kickthepj: (sung) In short, we’ve more than a smattering of YouTube channel strategy…

-pause- 

Kickthepj + ChewingSand: (sung) You’ll say a better YouTuber has never, ever sat a gee!

FunnyCatVideos: (sung) You said a better YouTuber has never, ever sat a gee, you said a better YouTuber has never, ever sat a gee! YousaidabetterYouTuberhasnev (crash)

Kickthepj + ChewingSand: (sung) For our prowess on the YouTubes, we are plucky and adventury. It’s the social media platform that will redefine the century! But still in matters vegetable, animal and mineral-

ChewingSand: (sung) I AM THE VERY MODEL- (scream)

Kickthepj: (sung) I am the very model of the YouTube individual.
