1992-03-?? Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure (DOS) Bobby Prince 1:10 IMF

Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure (DOS)

Bobby Prince arranged this version of Tush for the title music of Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure. The song has been altered enough to avoid copyright lawsuits, but it's still blatantly recognizable.

This rendition was arranged as a MIDI file in Sequencer Plus Gold and then rearranged for IMF. Bobby Prince said that his originals no longer exist. The type-0 IMF file is named MZZTop.mni in the Cosmo1.vol, Cosmo2.vol, and Cosmo3.vol files.

The song is played as the game's title music, and in E1L10.


Lyrics

The lyrics are not actually featured in any game.

I been up, I been down.
Take my word, my way around.
I ain't askin' for much.
I said, Lord, take me downtown,
I'm just lookin' for some tush.

I been bad, I been good,
Dallas, Texas, Hollywood.
I ain't askin' for much.
I said, Lord, take me downtown,
I'm just lookin' for some tush.

Take me back way back home,
not by myself, not alone.
I ain't askin' for much.
I said, Lord, take me downtown,
I'm just lookin' for some tush.
