Default Tau theme song

well i was listening to a song, about 10 minutes ago and it reminded me of the tau, so ive re-written the lyrics a bit. ive only been working on it for about 5 min. so the lines dont actually ryhme. Sing it with the tune of Bang Bang(my baby shot me down) by Nancy Sinatra.

Their range is 30 their str is 5
They ride on fishes made of steel
Their armours beige and clothes black
They will always win the fight

Bang bang, they shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, the tau shot me down.

tanks rolled out and got destroyed
Our armour was a joke
they would always laugh and say
"Remember when they had real armour"

Bang bang, they shot us down
Bang bang, we hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, the tau shot us down.

Rifles shot, and marines died
For their raiders, the rail guns shot.

Now the empire lost, I dont know why
And till this day, the greyknights cry
We didnt even say goodbye
Didnt take them time to get our guys

Bang bang, they'll shot you down
Bang bang, you'll hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, the tau will shoot you down...

Any ideas of lines that would ryhme in there?

Ok lemme see what I can do.

Their range is 30 their str is 5
They ride on steel fish not alive
Their armours beige and clothes red
They will always win and we'll be dead

Bang bang, they shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, the tau shot me down.

tanks rolled out and got destroyed
Our armour was most enjoyed
they would always laugh and say
"Remember when they could really play"

Bang bang, they shot us down
Bang bang, we hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, the tau shot us down.

Rifles shot, and marines died
For their raiders, the rail guns cried.

Now the empire lost, I dont know why
And till this day, the greyknights cry
We didnt even say farewell
Our defeat was not hard to tell

Bang bang, they'll shot you down
Bang bang, you'll hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, the tau will shoot you down...


Ok thats the best I can get it to rhym while changing as little as possible.

Sure mate, no problem

Does your writing include writing 'I', I'd and generally using capital letters? ^^

Also, if you're starting to write correctly, or at least, writing formal, perhaps you should attend your signature ^^?

Well give me some time, I've been writing like that online since im twelve correcting myself isn't and over night thing. and as to my signature.......it just sounds too cool. I don't know ill think of it. "I dont need manners, ive got railguns" I'm a rebel and I'll be a rebel untill I die, even if I follow the rules.(And yet ive never used O'Shovah)

I've always get a snippet of the song "Radar Love" caught in my head when I play my Broadsides...

"We've got a thing.. that's called Railgun love.
We've got a line on your tank. Railgun love." * ;D

always brings a smile to my face...

never mind...

Set it to the music of you favorite "song to kill by". Find the lyrics, then swap them for your own so they rhyme in the same way. Then you can set it to some kick@** song.

Wow, that's pretty good, Elessar and Vash! Occasionally I see something like this, and wish I could somehow alter the original version, and put it on a mix CD to play at GW while I play.
