Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A greatly simplified look at Dante, for more detail: http://www.wsu.edu/~alake/the_circles_of_hell.htm. Old Nick: the devil; Malabolgia: literally "evil hellpit," Lower Hell in Dante's "Inferno"
Hell, if you ever plan to go down south,
Look for a cave with way paved to Hades mouth.
You'll meet Old Nick on Route 666.

Well, it winds from Vestibule to The Well
In Dante's nine levels of Hell.
You'll meet Old Nick on Route 666.

Hell, you'll meet St. Lucifer, if you're a misuser,
Past Limbo, no pity; 6--Heretics city.
You'll see, after Limbo, slatterns, 'tutes, and bimbos
Gluttons next, then Hoarders, to #5's borders.
Wrathful, Violent, Pimps, legs akimbo

Here's a tip: don't let your kindness slip,
Or you'll make that Malabolgia trip
And meet Old Nick on Route 666.

John, it happens to me. I came up with a brilliant idea the other day. I was going to do "Watching the Defectives" And Mari went "Ahem, I already did that one" Oops.

Oh, good, Malcolm hasn't checked in yet. That means I can do the obvious joke: This was one hell of a good parody! You might also want to check out "Dante's the Guy": http://www.amiright.com/parody/80s/billyjoel77.shtml.
