Once upon a morning dawn
Ninja Brian and I happened upon a gold pond
In a forest enchanted where we
Both gazed upon a bold sight so fair, see there!

Beneath the blue waterfall
A mermaid was swimming, and my heart, enthralled
Became lost in the beautiful lines of her face
Her every lithe movement was exquisite grace

I trembled in silence
At the love of my life
Such a delicate moment
I must play this just right

“Hey, do you want pizza?” I screamed loud as shit
Then I grabbed a whole pizza, threw the fuck out of it!
It soared through the air like some pizza-ass doves
Now marvel, and witness the glory of love!

The mermaid looked off with her hair in the breeze
For she’d noticed not my love letter of cheese, I don’t see
How I may get her soul to listen
Like sunlight she shines, like crystals she glistens

I need to dream an ingenious new scheme
So this angel shall open her heart up to me

More pizza, Brian! With onions and ham too!
Now coat me in pizza and throw me, goddamn you!
As choirs of angels sing out to the sky
In a cheese crust of passion my true love shall fly

  1. Watch it at least once a week. I laugh every single time. One of my favorite things ever. Thanks Danny! Keeping being you.

  2. “You come across a mermaid at a waterfall.”
    rolls die
    “20 for presentation, impressive”
    rolls die again
    “…and a 1 for seduction”
    “Oh god just get it out of the way”
    “Your start singing to the mermaid about pizza. Loudly”

  3. Danny must have an incredible healing factor for the amount of times he gets broken bones and stabbed, usually by ninja brian.

  4. Be honest. If someone screamed "Do you want pizza?" And threw a whole pizza at you, would you fall in love with that person?

  5. Everyone is talking about the "hey do you you want pizza" but no one is talking about how amazing the "I screamed loud as shit" verse was sang

  6. First time I was hearing this I thought it was an actual song that wasn’t meant to be the usual NSP style. Well I was proven wrong very fast 😂

  7. I don't know where he went wrong 🤔 that was the perfect way to get a girls attention maybe it was the ham on the pizza…. I would've went with sausage…

  8. Listening to the song the first time, I thought at first “wow, such a nice medieval themed song” and then Dan destroys it in the most perfect way. “HEY YOU WANT PIZZA??!!?!” xD Almost died there, because I was laughing so hard. Perfectly describes my flirting skills, though. xD

  9. I’m very scared about the fact that dan not only wasted about a dozen pizzas but he decided to make a suit with a majority of said pizza on it

  10. Listened to this song several times since I bought the album, but first time watching the video and I'm gifted with Adam and Lawrence in as a pair of enchanting fairies. NSP is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
