The Lyrics

To any fan of Stephen's books or films, I present this as a challenge. Find the 31 of his works hidden within the song.
This is a Tommyknocker invasion.
Is it four past Midnight yet?
Insomnia deprives you of your beauty rest.
The Mangler impares ability to operate machinary.
Can't quite tell just what IT means to me.
Gerald's game is not for children.
Don't make fun of Carrie.
Get your philosophy from Dolores Claiborne.

Chorus: Steve King.
Readin' bout' Stephen King.
I said Steve King.
Readin' bout' Stephen King.
About. All right.

Work the night shift, rid's you of your misery.
Bury your mother in the pet sematary.
A green mile long walk down 'Salems Lot.
If you car's name is Christine,
odds are that she's dangerous.
Desperation, destination,
towards good ol' Derry, Maine.
Boarded up because my dog Cujo has gone insane.


My dreamcatcher helps me telepathically.
The Skeleton Crew takes the stand triumphantly.
Nightmares and dreamscapes lurk inside the dark tower.
It's the shining prize that's getting thinner by the hour.
Creepshow's different seasons play on my television. Hey!
A firestarter lurks in The Dead Zone's south precinct.


This was a talisman's bag of bones.
Pierced by silver bullets.

This young man and the author Stephen King are true examples of a complete deranged mind. They should be condemned by God and sent to the fiery pits of hell. Even though both were raised under a Christian homelife. And also, I'm not a real reverend... I have no license and I should be condemned to hell for my evil sins against Josh Bain and Stephen King.

This Was Awsome! I never even thought about writing a parody about a book or author. Not even Stephen King who I've read since I was 12.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
