Chocobo Warrior – lyrics

Yo! (Wark!) I’m gonna tell you about my Chocobo brethren
who dress in full battle gear. Wark with me.

I’m a
Chocobo Warrior
Chocobo Warrior
Chocobo Warrior
Chocobo Warrior

I’m a chocobo warrior,
I’m coming for ya.
Peck you with my beak
yellow freak bird tore ya.

Race me, chase me,
no one here can pace me.
Fools coming from the East side wanna waste me.
Taste my dust, as I stampede and you must,
be wondering. Chocobo? Can’t be.
Yes it is, and when I’m all up in your face
you’ll all be screaming Chocobo in the place.

I’m a chocobo warrior
I’m a chocobo warrior
I’m a chocobo warrior
I’m a chocobo warrior

Breaking away from the flock, have you heard?
I came to bring you a word of warning
This big bird is about to drop a …beat
On your head and your ears
My armor’s strong
Enough to take a Meteor blast with no fears

No saddle, ’cause I don’t need a rider
These two claws are for shredding foes like Strider

Hey Shinra, or any other evil corporation
I’ve got a three toed punch with enough force to break your face in

I was bred for intelligence, power, and speed
I didn’t get to be this strong by eating chicken feed
Healthy greens is what I need to lead these people
To rise up against those evil ones motivated by greed

I’m a chocobo warrior
I’m a chocobo warrior
I’m a chocobo warrior
I’m a chocobo warrior

Off the battlefield I always keep my feathers clean
Lady chocobos love my radiant sheen, I ain’t mean
I’ve got compassion when they’re feeling hurt
Romantic scratching for the best worms in the dirt
To make a wormy dessert

On the battlefield’s a different matter
I strike hard and fast and make my opponent splatter
The rest scatter
Attack like an adder, going crazy on your crew like the Mad Hatter
Hitting heavy like a cannon ball
Just before my enemies fall
From the distance getting closer they can hear the battle call of a

Chocobo Warrior
Chocobo Warrior
Chocobo Warrior
Chocobo Warrior

Chocobo Warrior, a rap song

Chocobo Warrior album art

Chocobo are the large bird-creatures from the Final Fantasy game series. They are usually harmless and in many FF games can be tamed and ridden.

Over 12 years ago, I had this idea for a song about a Chocobo Warrior. The hero of this song presented himself as independent and confident in the rap music style. The song idea always amused myself and only a couple of friends and family members until I finished it this year.

I created the “Chocobo sound” from a synthesizer in Ableton Live. I modeled the sound after a Chocobo sample, but rather than simply sampling the sound and throwing it into the song, I wanted to have the flexibility to extend the Chocobo’s call and make human like inflection. So, I really needed to create the bird call from scratch, but once I did, I was able to have a bit of fun “playing” the Chocobo sound on a keyboard. 🙂

Since it has journeyed from more than 12 years in the past, I hope this song finds you well, particularly if you are a fan of Final Fantasy, or Chocobo in general.
