  • Guys, Michael Bolton is here
    Oh great, send him in
    Hey guys (hey, thanks for coming!)
    Sorry I'm late
    I just got caught up watching the Pirates of the Caribbean marathon
    Have you seen those things?
    Oh yeah, yeah, those are, those are great
    Well, I checked out the track and I loved it
    And I wrote you this big, sexy hook
    I think you're gonna really dig
    Oh wow, that's great (awesome)
    Should we just lay it down?
    Boys, let's get to it (to it, to it, to it)

    Here we go
    Uh, Lonely Island, Michael Bolton (yeah)
    The night starts now
    Together on the track, the boys are back
    The night starts now
    Night starts now, baby, roll with us
    Chickens snapping at the neck when we rollin' up (rollin' up!)
    Blow through the doors, ain't no holdin' up
    Black Card at the bar like I gives a fuck (come on)

    Ladies shifty eyed when we walk into the set
    Fuck the fellas looking jealous
    Play the back and get wet (yeah, yeah)
    Three pound in my waist, shank in my sock
    You either get cut, get stuffed or get shot

    This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow
    Pirate so brave on the seven seas (what?)
    A mystical quest to the isle of Tortuga
    Raven locks sway on the ocean's breeze

    Yeah, that was kinda weird, but we're back in the club
    Buying up the bar so the groupies show us love (Keira Knightley!)
    Motherfucking ice-man, I'm the top gunner
    Heater on blast, I'm the number one stunner (Jack Sparrow!)

    Watch it girl, 'cause I ain't your "Mr. Nice Guy"
    More like the "meet ya, take you home and fuck you twice guy" (yeah yeah)
    All dressed up with nowhere to run
    And now I make you feel crazy with the- (now back to the good part!)

    From the day he was born
    He yearned for adventure (no!)
    Old Captain Jack (yeah)
    Giving them what for
    He's the pauper of the surf
    The jester of Tortuga (0h God)
    But is Davy Jones' locker
    What lies in store? (Yeah, we've seen the movie)

    Throw your hands in the air
    And say hells yeah, c'mon
    Captain Jack (what?)
    Johnny Depp (no)

    From the front to the back
    Say we count stacks, c'mon
    Davy Jones (nope) giant squid (wrong)
    Michael Bolton, we're really gonna need you to focus up

    Roger that let me try it with another film (wait)
    Life is a box of chocolates and my name is Forrest Gump (not better)
    Though I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed
    I give Jenny all my love (come on)
    Okay, then I'm a legal aid
    Erin Brockovich is my name (oh God)
    Then you can call me Scarface
    Snortin' mountains of cocaine (close enough)

    You cockroaches wanna play rough?
    Okay, I'm reloaded! Ha ha!

    This is the tale of Tony Montana
    Cubano flame with the Miami nuts (take it home)
    Got a basehead wife
    But her womb is polluted
    This whole town's a pussy
    Just waiting to get fucked (just waiting to get fucked

    (Okay, it turns out Michael Bolton is a major cinephile)
    You complete me (yeah, yeah, okay) Writer/s: Akiva Schaffer, Andrew Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Michael Woods
