"History" as written by Thomas Jacob Black and Kyle Richard Gass....
This is a song called the history of Tenacious D
And its not just a list of bullshit that we've done in the past
It's a chronicling of our rise....TO POWER

We ride with kings on mighty steeds
Across the devils plain
We've walked with Jesus and his cross
He did not die in vain, NO!

We've run with wolves, we've climbed K2
Even stopped a moving train
We've travelled through space and time my friends
To rock this house again, ROCK!

We ride and we ride and we'll never subside
And we'll ride till the planets collide
And if you say that we do not ride
I'll tan you're fucking hide, RIDE!

Kyle's fingers be silver, Jacks voice then be gold
But lest you think we're vain
We know you're all robots and we don't care
Tenacious D, we reign!

We rei-eign, surpreme, OOOHH GOD!
Burrito supreme, and a chicken supreme
And a cutlass supreme
SUPREEEMEEEEE YEAAAAAHHH
SUPREME!!

(New album version has longer ending)

    General CommentI don't know what "weezerific:cutlery" was thinking when he typed this up but this isn't right at all, in anyway, and the beginning is a completely different song "Kielbasa" from the first album... Oh well, here's the correction just so you all can see it.

    "This is a song called 'The History of Tenacious D' and it's not just a list of bullshit we've done in the past. It's a chronicling of our rise, to power!

    We ride with kings on mighty steeds across the devils plain

    We've run with wolves, we've climbed K2, we've even stopped a moving train.
    We've travelled through space and time my friends to rock this house again, ROCK!

    We'll ride, we'll ride, we'll never subside, we'll ride till the planets collide.
    And if you say that we do not ride I'll turn your fuckin' hide, RIDE!

    Kyle's fingers be silver, Jack's voice then be gold, but lest you think we're vain.
    We know you're all robots and we don't care, Tenacious D, WE REIGN!

    We reign supreme, well oh God, burrito supreme and a chicken supreme and a cutless supreme, supreme yeah.

    Go now Kyle 1, 2, 3.

    Supreme.

    Go now Kyle 1, 2, 3.

    Supreme.

    Go now Kyle 1, 2, 3.

    Burrito supreme and a chicken supreme and a cutless supreme.

    SUPREME!"

    That turn your hide part is the only bit that I don't get because it doesn't make sense to me, but I could swear that's what he says.

    General CommentQOTSAEnthusiast I think he says "I'll tan your hide" not turn. Tan your hide is just an expression that basically means 'I'm gonna spank you' or some similar punishment. It comes from the tanning of animal skins (or hides).
