Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I've been away for a few days. Got this idea from a comment I made after reading Rick D's "Motel Off the Road".
Master Bates, in that dingy, old motel he waits
Guests check in at four, they're gone by eight
All victimized by Master Bates

Suddenly, you are half the girl you used to be
You'll fit better in the trunk in threes
Oh, Master Bates strikes suddenly

Why he fidgets so, I don't know, a quirky trait
He's a peephole person for sure, this Master Bates

Master Bates, offers motel rooms at real cut rates
Mother never lets him go on dates
So, he just stays in, Master Bates

Don't give up your keys to this twit, a poor valet
All guests cars end up in the lake and there they stay

Master Bates, offers motel rooms at real cut rates
Mother never lets him go on dates
So, he just sits there, Master Bates

Hmm Hmm Hmm Hmm
Hmm Hmm Hmmmmmmmmm

Oooh, clever on a number of levels, you "psycho" you!

Very good

I was expecting something else, but from you I knew it would at least be funny, so I took a chance. Really good job! 5's

Always happy to provide inspiration. Even if it's just you cracking yourself up with witty repartee.
ChuckyG - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Just for reference, I recognize the pun involved here, but since the parody subject isn't about that other subject... it's fine by me
John Barry - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Dare I say it? Hitchcockian. 5s
AFW - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Real good job,here...I think Martin Ballsome and Janet Lay were in this film, too
Rick C - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Agri, Royce, Adagio, Rick D, ChuckyG and AFW. For the record, Chucky, I have no idea what that other subject is but, John and AFW left a couple of horrific double entendres in their comments that shocked me.

Not much time to check out new entries today, but of course I had to with this one, loved the "cut rates" pun! :-)
Michael Pacholek - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
This could have been a sticky situation... especially considering Norman's affinity for knives... but you remain a cut above.

What was with that hum job at the end? I'm offended!
Red Ant - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Good job Rick (hate to say that but everyone already took the good puns).

Rick C - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Alvin, Peter, Michael, Rick D, Red Ant and PMS. Rick, that wasn't a hum job. It was the sound of the fly that Master Bates is not going to harm in any way. Oh no, he'll just sit there.....

So I just sit here....voting fives. Great stuff, Rick.

Rick C: You had to dredge that scene up, huh?
Jeff Reuben - August 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Well done (Ah...but the servant waits...)
Stuart McArthur - August 06, 2005 - Report this comment
nicely done, Rick - did you toss around the ovious "cut-throat rates" for "real cut rates" although I know the former isn't really in keeping with the film - Psycho parodies have suddenly almost become a sub-category! - 555
Rick C - August 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Thank you Dee, Michael, Jeff and Stuart. Stu, no, I didn't think of that line. My wife says I'm oblivious to the obvious. :-)

Mine says that too (about me, not you) - although she phrases it more "You ugly daft baboon" - why is that?

I thought I commented on this already... evidently not: maybe I just couldn't think of anything suitably witty to say ;-) Very unexpected, Rick, and not even a mention of Pugwash (this reference may not travel across the Atlantic, but the Brits will know what I'm talking about)
Rick C - September 13, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks everyone. OK Philbo, what is Pugwash???

Haha, very late on this one, but very funny. Great use of a song that's already seen a lot of use.

I had no idea that another amirighter beside Alvin Rhodes and I have done "Psycho" parody. Now I'm not so sure who actually started the original idea of writing about the Hitchcock thriller, "Psycho". I just know that I tagged along and it is good to know that there are other writers out here that like the macabre side of humor that "Psycho" so generously lends itself to. I was absent from the site during the period that this was penned. No wonder it is only now that I see it.

This is about as well writen as a "Psycho" parody could be. Amazing wordplay and you captured the sick bond between Norman and his mother so well. This is absolutely on the "cutting edge" of "Psycho" horrordy. Well played. High fives!
