The Lyrics

Are Boy Bands the Music Industry's equivivalent to The Walking Dead? I'd say yes, but this parody ended up more like an episode of Scooby Doo.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
We heard it's haunt... heard it's haunted, filled with ghosts
We'd go about it like houses saved by Scooby-Doo
We've broken in tonight
Now you can hear us scream
Things from the other side
They give us the creeps

But we're here tonight
Alone in this ghost house
We're in dismay
Why can't we get out?
We can not hide
We can not flee here
Seems there's no way
Why did we come here? Oh Gee!

Heard a word, heard a word, but it was "Boo-o-o!"
Jumped high, terrified, out of our shoes and clothes
This mansion's tenancy
Is out of time and place
Now demons nibble me
I hope it's not foreplay

We're stuck here tonight
All lost in a damned house
Dark passageways
Why are the lights out?
Trapdoors and slides
We can not flee here
Bolted doorways
Why did we come here? Oh Gee!

Hey! An opening I see
This way we'll get away
We're no longer constricted by ghosts
Hell, we're rushing through a mine
Behind us banshees cry
We hear them in the distant
They scream "No-o-o-o-o-o-o"
Don't you go-o-o-o-o-o!"

We run for the light
Behind us the ghosts pout
They're in dismay
Don't wanna go out
They're on their hides
Not gonna leave there
This is the way
What is it they fear?
Break free!
We're free!
Scott free!
Why did we go there? Oh Gee!
