Track Name: The Ballad of Sir David Attenborough
Sir David Attenborough
Tell me, do you know
All of the honors and titles you've received
Can you name them off the top
Of your grey, distinguished head
Or do they really not mean all that much to you?

Do they seem excessive at times?
Do they ever trouble your mind?

Member of the Order of Merit
Commander of the Royal Victorian Order
Companion of Honour
Commander of the Order of the British Empire
Fellow of the Royal Society
Fellow of Zoological Society of London

And the only person to have ever won a BAFTA in black and white, and colour, and HD, and 3D.

Oh, Sir David Attenborough
Oh, Sir David Attenborough

I don't know what any of those letters mean
But they're pretty impressive anyway
Track Name: Quite The Guy
"Quite The Guy"

There's times when you meet someone,
and soon as you see their face
You're ready to drag them off somewhere
and get naked in some private place
But other times it takes some time
To realize there's something there
You might not even be sure what it is
that caused this love affair

It's nothing in particular
you can't quite pin it down
He's not even that attractive
His hair's a mousy brown
He's much too old and much too strange
Got 100 ways to kill you in his brain
But you can't seem to deny
Geurrero's quite the guy

It must have been somewhere near the end
of the first season
When his presence on the screen
robbed my brain of all its reason
He's got a pretty shady past
Seen things that'd make me cry
But though I keep telling myself all of this
I can't seem to deny

Sure, Chance is the hunky blonde one
Winston's the sanest in the long run
When Ames shuts up she's pretty hot
But there's something special none of them have got...

It's something in the way that he says "dude"
I can't explain it though I've tried
He should be cruising in the ElDo
With me right by his side
He's dangerous and probably insane
Got a thousand ways to kill you in his brain
But I can't seem to deny
Geurrero's quite the guy
