Holding Out for a Healer – World of Warcraft Parody


Where have all the good monks gone? …and where are all the priests? Where’s the group-wise paladin to dispel my disease? Isn’t there a holy knight upon a shiny steed? Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream
of what I need! I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer to the end of the run. They’ve gotta be skilled… …and they’ve gotta be calm …and they’ve gotta be second to none. I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the rise of the sun. They gotta be geared… …and they’ve gotta be buffed… …and they’ve gotta stay joined ’til we’re done. Stay joined ’til we’re done… Somewhere past the fourth wipe… …without a druid tree. Someone just pulled all the mobs… …and tricksed them onto me! Breaking all the frost traps… …and disrupting all the sheep! It’s gonna take a mistweaver who knows how to leg-sweep! I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the end of the run. They’ve gotta be skilled… …and they’ve gotta be calm… …and they’ve gotta be second to none. I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the rise of the sun. They’ve gotta be geared… …and they’ve gotta be buffed… …and they’ve gotta stay joined ’til we’re done! I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the end of the run! Up where the waters tear the land and the dirt… …out where the Maelstrom splits the sea… …I could swear there’s a shaman… …somewhere just for me! Through the wind, and the chill, and the rain… …and the storm, and the flood! I can feel his approach like the fire in my blood! I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the end of the run. They’ve gotta be skilled… …and they’ve gotta be calm… …and they’ve gotta be second to none! I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the rise of the sun. They’ve gotta be geared… …and they’ve gotta be buffed… …and they’ve gotta stay joined ’til we’re done. I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the end of the run! They’ve gotta be skilled… …and they’ve gotta be calm… …and they’ve gotta be second to none. I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the rise of the sun. They’ve gotta be geared… …and they’ve gotta be buffed… …and they’ve gotta stay joined ’til we’re done! I need a healer! I’m holding out for a healer ’til the end of the run.

  1. I can't be the only one having to dance with my arms each time I hear this song or any parody song. I'm sweaty now.

  2. Side note: she clearly doesn't just "need a healer" she then states he gotta be l33t bassicly. Can't be picky when you're in dire need

  3. I'm a freaking amazing Shaman healer, every time my boyfriend and I play with our wow friend I'm always the healer. Though more often then not people drop me from the group for no reason even though I keep all their dumbasses alive. Side note: did she mention Shamans? I heard druid, priests, paladins, and holy knights or whatever but no shamans.

  4. ok, can you do a Give me a man after midnight parody? please, porfavor ♥

  5. This reminds me of my boyfriend who did mechagone with his tank monk and change 5 times healer during the run and I was like do you want I play my healer monk like the old mythic run times xD (ps if I misspelled it's because english isn't my primary language) But I mean all during his run only healers left… How funny of how this turns to be true ah ah

  6. Raid Leader : Can someone switch to a healer please ?

    Me : Laughs in warlock ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  7. OMG love, I always thought this game is for children but… I play a healer in Archeage, ESO and Black Desert Online and this just got me laughing so hard!!! =D

  8. That was pretty Epic!! Ty looks like a metric shiton of work went in to that. Shorr/priest

  9. !Great video! What software do you use to record these amazing camera angles ? My char can't fly in closed spaces, lol 😛

  10. Love the song and the video…but…in a time where monks exist you dont have to be skilled or geared to be op. Faceroll pug raids yay. Shoulda made it for a time when you actually needed skill and gear

  11. You forgot to mention the Shammy rez'ing the tank, the tank dc'ing, and the hunter pet-tanking after. Probably in other videos though. Freaking good job putting the healer stuff into the hero song.

  12. As a healer. Thank you for appreciating us. We really dont get enough love despite the fact that we are the gatekeepers between life and death.

  13. I am not a healer but a BM Hunter that protects any healer in my group. No healer dies if I am there.

  14. That is SUCH a good video, imagery, action, music, voice! Brings tears to my eyes, honestly.

  15. So now you will get healer if you ask about it,because now everyone who has heard the song knows you XD

  16. there was no Leeroy Jenkins 0/10 XD (seriously my one complaint is how brutally mispronounced Shaman was. its Shaaman not Shameman. XD JFC)

  17. She has such a good voice, I like this more than the original song. Wish she'd do a cover of the real song!! Haha

  18. awesome.. why can't i meet any cute girls to heal for or tank or dps for : P : ( left all alone in classic.. no friends

  19. This is really literally the best you ever did, omg that song is so amazing. Even my Non-WoW Friends aprove it. Legendary song. <3

  20. Ok, I'll heal but you have to take my noob friend and a guildie of mine. By the way he's on the legendary quest and wants the drop from the endboss. Oh, and if any druid tier drops I get dibs. I also need the agi weapon for my offspec. Does anyone have food, flasks and pots? I hate paying for that stuff. Who here can enchant my weapon? I need a jeeves before we clear trash.

  21. This is Genius.. Back in the days used to love the parody's of nyhm and such as well, although they weren't sounding as good as this one. This could be an official production. I vote Blizzard buys the rights to the original, just so thay can use this parody on everything without any stress xD

  22. Healers always disappear when new expansion landed and they rerolled as DPS alts. But they come back.

    Thinking of rolling up a healer myself!

  23. "Don't you too notice a drop in healers on the server?" "Indeed. Wait, I know how to fix that.." promotes epic healer machinema music video "O my god, everyone is respeccing resto!!!"

  24. I don’t play this game, but this song is making me want to. Especially as a healer. ^-^

  25. I think my favourite part of the editing has to be the 'has to be geared' transitions. So beautifully timed! So witty! (Also, how'd the camera get up so high outside of Silvermoon?)
