Parody Song Title:

"Strangers in the Night... Bang!"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

Strangers in the night, don't prosecute them
Once they've got inside, just go and shoot them
Just ensure they've died
Before the cops come through.

Something in their eyes was kind of frightening
Something in your trig...ger finger tightening
Pointing at the heart,
You knew that you must shoooo...t

Strangers in the night, and so instead of
Warning strangers in the night
Just blow their head off
Only then reach for the phone
Say you were at home
Make sure that your story's straight, just
In case they investigate, and

Ever since those guys you blew to pieces
You have had to hide from the polices
It turns out those guys
Were p'licemen in the night

Thanks, all :-)
Alvin - groan
Oh, Kristof - you've spotted the one rhyme I (in the words of Tom Lehrer) "researched"... originally:
Crippen was a great guy, he chopped his wife in pieces
Put them under the cellar floor to hide from the polices
Dressed his woman as a boy, and took her on a ship
A pity there was radio to go and spoil their trip
..from the poem "Second thoughts on Matrimony", by EJ Alexander
