Track Name: Retirement
What am I gonna do for the rest of my days?
I just quit Basketball, I must be insane
Gotta find a new sport for me to pick
Just make the ball smaller and give me a stick
make the ball smaller and give me a stick

Trade in my shorts for polyester pants
Give me a bat and give me a chance
Used to be in the NBA All-Star Team
Now my team is kinda lame and so are my dreams
Now my team is kinda lame and so are my dreams

I’m the tallest man on the team this year
I’m a baseball player, this feels kinda weird
This isn’t even fiction even though it seems
My name is Michael Jordan, don’t question my dreams
Track Name: Aliens Exist 2 (Swackhammer's Lament)
I can’t believe this
My life is pointless
I have a theme park
It’s unsuccessful
Sometimes I feel like
I’m just an alien
living in space, man
Because I am one

And this not how I expected my life to turn out
I’m overweight and lonely there’s no doubt
And maybe if the Looney Tunes were here
I could stop living my every single day in fear

And so I’ll send my
only friends to
the Looney Tune world.
I guess I’ll see you
In a few days,
you know I’ll miss you
You better come back with Bugs Bunny, too

And this not how I expected my life to turn out
I’m overweight and lonely there’s no doubt
And maybe if the Looney Tunes were here
I could stop living my every single day in fear
Track Name: Take It From Me, Michael Jordan
I’m sorry Bill Murray but you’ll never be
The star of my NBA all-star team
I’m sorry Bill Murray but you’ll never see
A minute of play, unless it’s on TV
I’m sorry Bill Murray I wish you wouldn’t cry
You’re an actor and a millionaire and a pretty good guy
I’m sorry Bill Murray it’s just not in the cards
You’re too short, and awkward, and basketball’s hard

I’m sorry Bill Murray I wish I could say
Something to make you feel better make everything go away
I’m sorry Bill Murray maybe you’re right
Maybe an alien spaceship will come in the middle of the night
I’m sorry Bill Murray if it’s possible at all
That maybe all the aliens will just want to challenge me in basketball
I’m sorry Bill Murray but that could never happen
Unless we were in a cartoon world, oh man, could you even imagine?

I wish I could believe in you
I wish I could believe in you
I wish I could believe in anything
I wish I could believe in you

I’m sorry Bill Murray but you’ll never be
The star of my NBA all-star team
Track Name: Short People by Newman From Seinfeld
What should we do
What should we do
These tiny aliens want to turn us into space slaves
We only have chance
We only have chance
To beat them in a competition of our choice

We should challenge them in a game of Basketball
I don’t know much, yeah I don’t know much at all
But I know short people have trouble playing Basketball
Besides Mugsey Bogues, the exception that proves the rule

This plan is foolproof
Oh, it’s a full proof plan
I guess we’re assuming that these aliens don’t have undisclosed powers
Cause that would suck, man
That would really bust my gourd
If they could do something crazy like harness NBA player’s skills
Track Name: The Ballad of Charles Barkley
It doesn’t feel the same
It doesn’t feel the same
I feel like an alien
Took everything I’ve got

It doesn’t feel the same
I don’t know what’s going on in my brain
I feel like I’m goin’ insane
But I know I’m not

And I need you more than ever but you’re gone
Yeah I need you more than ever but you’re gone
Track Name: Mon-tage
This would be so much easier as a training montage, a cool eighties song in the background, please. Speed through this, we’ve got a bunch of other stuff to do, now.
[SHRED]
Now we’re good at basketball
Track Name: The Big Game (Movements 1 & 2)
The game begins, hopes are high
We need to win, we need to try
our hardest

The game is tough, we’re already losing
We’re taking some hits, we’re taking a bruising

Everybody get up its time slam now,
we got a real jam going now
welcome to the space jam
here’s your chance do your dance at the space jam

Know what are we gonna do?
Everybody is falling apart

We need you, Bill Murray
We need you to play
It’s your time to shine
It’s time to save the day

We need you, Bill Murray
We need to play
We just need a warm body
And I guess you’ll do today

[spoken]
So, miraculously, after an eloquent motivational locker room speech by bugs bunny and some questionable “performance enhancing substances,” the Looney Tunes have managed to orchestrate an insane comeback. Time-wise, I’m not really sure how it all worked, but the important part is that Bill Murray is there and they’re only down one point with just a few seconds left. Now, Michael Jordan has the ball and he’s honestly about half way across the court with mere moments left on the clock. NOW CONVENTIONAL KNOWLEDGE would dictate that this is an impossible situation. There’s no WAY he can make it, the Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan are going to be Space Slaves at an amusement park, YOU GET IT. But Michael doesn’t play by your rules, and he understands something that none of us do. So he jumps, and he stretches, and his arm starts stretching, and it stretches and it stretches and the clock is counting down and he’s stretching and he’s stretching and you know what?

he makes it.
he makes the shot.

Everybody get up its time slam now,
we got a real jam going now
welcome to the space jam
here’s your chance do your dance at the space jam
