The Lyrics

...the red riding hood story from the wolf's point of view...
woke up this morning...felt unkind
i got a slaughter...on my mind
last night i met a young girl...in the neighborhood
oh yeah
something tells me i'll get red riding hood
(something tells me i will be grinding)

she's the kind of girl...who's doomed to die
i'm as mean as hell...a jerk of a guy
she gets close to me...and i'll nail her good
(comes close to me and i'll nail her good)
something tells me i'll get red riding hood
(something tells me i will be grinding)

she'll visit gran in a minute or two
but instead she'll see me...her gran is through
will she be calling my bluff ?
my eyes too big and my voice too gruff
(my eyes too big and my voice too gruff)

into the home of her poor late gran
discovered it was me and away she ran
she dashed off and started to shriek
yeah, she started in good
(she started shrieking just as loud as she could)
something tells me i'll get red riding hood)
(something tells me i will be grinding)

ax in my dome...from a big fierce man
i said "oh woe-is-me"...i'm too weak to stand
my blood then cascaded and leaked
cause he sliced me good
(just like a woodsman in a fairy tale should)
something tells me i may be dead for good
(something tells me fate has befell me)
(something tells me fate has befell me)
sliced me good...oh yeah...sliced me good
(something tells me fate has befell me)
(something tells me fate has befell me)

2Eagle - June 11, 2008 - Report this comment
Good parody. I wonder if that tale is about a more dangerous kind of "wolf".

Super, Alvin - especially liked the "(just like a woodsman in a fairy tale should)" line... reminds me, I've got a "Sheriff of Nottingham" parody to this tune to finish :-)

. . . sounds like a Cowboy put the brakes on ya! Very good tale, Sir Alvin.

There's nothing grimm about a jaunty melody, a devoured granny, a frightened girl and a wolf with an ax in his head. May I use this tonight at bed-time ?

The wolf is just a carnivore doing what carnivores do, but I like your alternative perspective on this tale.

Great idea alvin. I love the way the neighborhood line hardly had to change but was so appropriate.
Guy - June 13, 2008 - Report this comment
Now this is one I could get my canines into. Now I ax you is this good or what? Great write on little Red from the hood. Sam the Sham should be envious.
