Uncle Monsterface Brooklyn, New York

Uncle Monsterface is fun, high energy nerd rock that stares you down from across the bar and dares you not to have a good time with them. They make songs about ninjas, Nintendo, D&D, lobsters, and life. Their live shows often include giant dancing monsters, notably one that shares the name with the band, and is also a sock puppet. Listen up and get down. ... more

Track Name: (don't fear the) NINJA
(you're a ninja, he's a ninja, that guy's a ninja!)

Ninjas are hiding
Creeping everywhere
Their time they are biding
Before they get you in your chair…

There's a Ninja in the basement,
There''s a Ninja in the tree,
There's a Ninja behind the hedge,
and he's comin' (he's comin' for) me (thee).

Perched upon a precipice
Throwing star in hand
You really cannot mess with this
Ninja, understand?
(Knife-hand! Sidekick!!)

There's a Ninja in the basement,
There''s a Ninja in the tree,
There's a Ninja behind the hedge,
and he's comin' (he's comin' for) me (thee).

***
According to Wikipedia, the Ninja is also known as the Shinobi,
(shi-no-biiiiii…revenge of…)
Covert mercenaries from feudal Japan.
Functions of the Ninja included, but were not limited to:
Espionage,
Sabotage,
Infiltration,
and Assassination.
(That's a lot of jobs…That's a lot of jobs…That's a lot of jobs…That's a lot of jobs…)

Like their functions, and their origins, precise abilities are also shrouded in mystery.
But said abilities included, but were not limited to:
Shape-shifting,
Flight,
Invisibility,
and Elemental Control!
I wanna be a Ninja!
(you're a ninja you're a you're a you're a ninja…
you're a ninja you're a you're a you're a ninja…)

Secret by design, shrouded in fear,
Two weapons they liked, two weapons I hear…

Two weapons…Two weapons…Two weapons…Two weapons…
Two weapons…Two weapons…Two weapons…
(they were:)

KATANA! and a THROWING STAR!
KATANA! and a THROWING STAR!
(there's a ninja in the basement, there's a ninja in the tree, there's a ninja behind the hedge and he's comin', he's comin' for me)
(he's comin' for me!)
KATANA! and a THROWING STAR!
(there's a ninja in the basement, there's a ninja in the tree, there's a ninja behind the hedge and he's comin', he's comin' for me)
(he's comin' for me!)

KATANA! and a THROWING STAR!

THERE's a NINJA IN THE BASEMENT!
HEE-YAH!
Track Name: This is (STILL) an Adventure!
I met a monkey made of pine
His best friend was a little girl
She had no legs
But she had both arms
And the prettiest little curls

I told them, "Hey I am looking
For the Dark Diamond."
They thought they could help
But...
"It's a Treacherous Trek!"

We all hopped on
To their airship
(it was powered by marbles)
We threw up our sails
(and arms)
And now there is no turning back
(y'all)

This Is An Adventure!
This Is An Adventure!
And there's no turning back!
This Is An Adventure!
