Cyclops Got Run Over by His Ex-Wife

Happy Holidays, everyone. =) Another little piece of my history here, the revised edition of a filk written on my last day of college, back in 1995. I disappeared offline for a few years, and have been making up for lost time ever since, and this gets posted SOMEwhere every Christmas since then. So without further ado...

"Cyclops Got Run Over By His Ex-Wife"

(to the tune of: "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" - by Elmo & Patsy)

Idea: Jason "The Phoenix" Bourgeois
Lyrics: Jason Bourgeois, Brucha Meyers, CRETIN, and DkPhoenix
Created in December 1995 in IRC, slightly revised December 1998

Cyclops got run over by his ex-wife,
Patrolling 'round the mansion Christmas Eve,
You may say there's no such thing as cloning,
But as for me and Essex, we believe.

He'd been swigging down his eggnog,
And we begged him not to go,
But Scott (that dork)'s so dedicated,
So he wobbled out the door into the snow.

When we found him Christmas morning,
At the scene of the attack,
There were claw-marks on his forehead,
And Infernal-looking symbols on his back.

Cyclops got run over by his ex-wife,
Patrolling 'round the mansion Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as cloning,
But as for me and Essex, we believe.

Well, we're all so proud of Cable,
He's been taking this so well,
Not a tear to rust his metal,
He just sits there playing cards with Sis Rachel.

It's not Christmas without Cyclops,
All the X-Men dressed in black,
And we just can't help but wonder,
Should we go to Sinister and clone him back?
(CLONE HIM BACK!!)

Cyclops got run over by his ex-wife,
Patrolling 'round the mansion Christmas Eve,
You may say there's no such thing as cloning,
But as for me and Essex, we believe.

Now that Scott is six feet under,
Jean's conscience is clear and clean,
My! Her luck is so uncanny,
At last she can go out with Wolverine.

I've warned all my friends and mutants,
Maddie could be after you,
They should have never given powers
To a gal who had Phoenix to live up to.

Cyclops got run over by his ex-wife,
Patrolling 'round the mansion Christmas Eve,
You can say there's no such thing as cloning,
But as for me and Essex, we believe.

Sing it, Nathans!!

Cyclops got run over by his ex-wife,
Patrolling 'round the mansion Christmas Eve,
You may say there's no such thing as cloning,
But as for me and Essex, we believe!
