    [Musical Parody] - Castle in the Sky by Utsune

    There is a castle in the sky,
    Ev'rybody's dream vacation,
    Pirates, peasants, agents alike,
    Up in a castle in the sky.

    There is a movie action-packed,
    There have been chases here and there,
    I got kidnapp'd and brought up high,
    Up in a castle in the sky.

    There is a sal'ryman in red,
    Fixing my hair-do with a gun,
    His head is big, it's a sight to see,
    He says, "Sheeta, return the stone to me."

    I know a place where no-one lives,
    I know a place where robots sleep,
    Guarding some walls and trees so high,
    Up in a castle in the sky.

    Rewritten the lyrics to Castle on a Cloud from Les Mis, parodying Ghibli's Castle in the Sky. It's one of my favourites from the musical ever since we sang it in the choir many years ago, and the immediate impression back then was: "Laputa!" (One of my first Ghibli's.) Song sung from Sheeta's POV instead of Cosette.

    The original lyrics are here:
