Heck, I’ve had so much fun with these song lyrics I’ll be posting them here (still need to think up a name for this little side-song, though…) - I’ll be singing the companion parts, since I’m voicing her anyway, and my dear Doctor voice actor will naturally be singing with me, since he’s pretty awesome.
‘The Doctor Departs' side-animation song (telling the story of how the Doctor and Tara meet – regular dialogue underlined):
[TARDIS beeps, lights flash red]
Doc: “What’s happening to the Earth?”
[TARDIS starts flying to Earth of its’ own accord.]
“Daleks! When I get there, it’s a pain,
What if my efforts are all in vain?
Why can’t I just have a quiet day!?”
Tara [hiding from Daleks]:
“Doctor now please heed my call,
They’re really going to end it all!
My world is doomed now, can’t you see?
Why won’t you come and rescue me!?” [TARDIS materializing sound]
Doc [standing with TARDIS doors open, light streaming in behind him]:
“I’m the Time Lord of your dreams,
Oh won’t you come and follow me?
It’s up to you now, don’t be shy…
I promise you won’t die!”
“These space monsters I will defy,
All I really need’s a timely guy,
To fight the baddies by my side,
Or the world will set alight!”
“With you beside me, throughout time,
I have the space to realize,
Beneath this cerulean sky,
We can only but try!”
“Daleks, you will meet your fate,
Your invasion we will abate…”
“I only hope we aren’t too late!
I’m the doctor who, with just cause,
Will gain your wonder and applause,
Go now dear, the TARDIS awaits-
And why aren’t you making haste?”
“Doctor… I’m sure you’re a real swell guy,
But that just ain’t what I am like.
I respect your courage, really I do,
But I was kinda hoping to… fight with you?”
“Oh, um… I didn’t really plan for this.”
“I’m sure you planned on getting yourself killed.”
“…It happens occasionally.”
“Helping each other, we can’t fail,
These dorky Daleks will not prevail,
With you and I-”
“Wait… you never told me your name!”
“If you must know, it’s Tara.”
“Well Tara, you never answered my question…
Are you willing to follow me,
To save your world from this Dalek siege?
I cannot lie, I don’t have a plan.
So won’t you give me a hand?”
[Catches plunger that flies from an exploding Dalek, and holds it out to the Doctor, smirking]
And that’s about it. I’ve been trying to write my own songs for a while, but this was the first one that really clicked.
