And now for something completely different:
A fic with no character development, no plot, and no description!

This is a parody of "Y.M.C.A." by the Village People, and was written for the latest chapter in my main fic. An abridged version appears in chapter 44 of the fic on that other forum, but since it'll be a long time before I'm up to chapter 44 here...

Note: The dance is similar to the YMCA dance, except that the letters formed are "P", "K", "C", and "T". Also, at the end of the chorus, a dance move involves spinning around and throwing an imaginary Pokeball.

I think this is allowed; after all it is a work of fiction that revolves around Pokemon so... without further ado...

The Po-Ke Cen-Ter!

Trainer, Are you feeling down?
I said, trainer, cause you were beaten sound?
I said, trainer, when you arrived in this town
You don't need to worry at all

Trainer, we've got a place you can go
I said, trainer, when your Pokemon feel low
Heal and stay there, and it won't cost a dime
I'm sure you'll have a good time

It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

They're ready and waiting for you to enjoy
You can get to know a Nurse Joy...

It's fun to stay at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to stay at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

You can call up your folks, you can take a nice snooze
In here you simply can't lose

Trainer, your Houndour looks weak,
I said, Trainer, Taillow's wounded its beak
I said, Trainer, their health is far from their peak
But help is not far away

When the Gym Leader shows your team no mercy
I said, Trainer, get them refreshed for free
And just go there, to the Poke Center
You'll be welcome each time you enter

It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

They're ready and waiting for you to enjoy
You can get to know a Nurse Joy...

It's fun to stay at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to stay at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

You can call up your folks, you can take a nice snooze
In here you simply can't lose

Trainer, I was once just like you
I said, Trainer, when Weedle poisoned Pikachu
I felt even a Magikarp could beat me
I felt that training just wasn't for me

That's when someone saw me just about dead
And said, Trainer, look for the roof that is red
There's a place there where you can heal up your team
For Trainers, it's a welcome scene

Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

They're ready and waiting for you to enjoy
You can get to know a Nurse Joy...

Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to stay at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to stay at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

You can call up your folks, you can take a nice snooze
In here you simply can't lose

Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke Cen-ter
It's fun to heal at the Po-Ke-Cen-ter

    This bit is slightly awkward; the first bit seems to have too many syllables.

    Odd, yes, but strangely awesome. You got a smile out of this kid. What an utterly perfect song and description XD

        Oh man, if I was listening to Y-M-C-A on CD instead of another song, this would have been perfect!

        I was laughing through the entire reading of this. Probably because Y-M-C-A is such a fun song, and also probably because you did such a good parody with this. Awesome. ^^

        x.x Agreed.

        But hey, DP, I liked it.

        Hmmm... Would just having "Leader" work better in that line?

        Thanks! I had this idea for awhile as just a fun little song I came up with

        I listen to it and "In the Navy as sort of guilty pleasures xD. And, aren't Pokemon Centers like the YMCA's of the Pokemon world - places where you can hang out, meet people, and get your Pokemon refreshed?

        Thanks again! Glad y'all liked it!

        Oh my gosh!

        I love eet! :3

        But, in some spots, there were too many syllables, and some rewording could've been done.

        But I love it nonetheless!! ^^

        Wow, nice work with that! Throughly enjoyed that - worked well and everything. Seemed to come out quite well and smoothly - the places with an extra syllable or two still fitted in well to the tune, and it's frankly impossible to incorparate it perfectly.

        Oh dear, I fear this is better than another 'song parody' that I've come up with eariler for a super-soon upcoming chapter... oh well - quite nice.

        Thanks! It's really tough matching up syllables, especially while trying to come up with something that sounds somewhat coherent and still rhymes, though.

        Awesome! Actually, for the full effect, you should take a look at the related scene in chapter 44 in my main fic (on that other forum). Methinks you'll like who sings it in the context of the story xD

        Thanks for reviewing, and I'm glad y'all liked it!

          Thanks! I might have said it before, but it is a bit tough to match syllables exactly. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it!
