My name is Cloud
I have a sword
I fight Cactuars
Because I'm Bored
I like to ride on Chocobos
It's better than
Having Afros

And when I go
Into an Inn
Fifteen seconds
It's day again
And I will use
A phoenix down
So when I die
I will not Frown

Because I am Cloud
My Hair defies all gravity
And I can't have too many potions
Or I might get cavities

If I can't slice you
Then that's ok
I'll use my magic
Anyway
And I will defeat
That Sephiroth
Because he's not
David Lee Roth


One reason why the animation has been so successful may be because the cuteness of Chibi Cloud (Omega meaning very and Kawaii meaning Cute). Cuteness (take Babies laughing for example) has a long history of appeal. The song also had silly lyrics set to a catchy tune.
