The Lyrics

These cloistered nuns they all lived there, they stayed inside,
A painting chore they would soon share, they did decide.
And I swear this is a true story,
How would they paint, what would they wear?
There were no old clothes to find there.
What could they wear?

Well let me tell you just how much they looked,
For some old clothes and a cover for their hair,
They searched around the school,
They searched both left and right,
No clothes there.

Well no old clothes did they find there, they did conclude,
Since no old clothes did they find there, why not paint nude?
And I swear this is a true story,
How would they paint, what would they wear?
There were no old clothes to find there.
What could they wear?

So they had to make sure no one could look,
The doors they'd lock then they color up their lair,
This painting job was cool,
They heard a knocking light,
Someone was there.

------ electric piano ------

"You can't come in we're very sorry,
Please tell us now who is out there"?
A male voice said it's the blind man,
And they're bare.

Well then one said there's no way he can look,
He'd never see all of us bare,
Let him in it's cool,
His arms were full of blinds,
Install them where?

Good job, Guy. I couldn't remember how the song went, so I found a MIDI here... http://www.garyrog.50megs.com/midi3.html

Hmm...good comments taken. :) Well, it was a really good job, Guy!

Mac, I had to use a midi to refresh my memory too, might have been the same one.

Guy, 5's

Oh, yeah, Guy! Exceptional job!! Perfectamente!! It took me a bit to remember how the first verse went so I just skipped to the 2nd and just fell right into the original Zombies grove on this song...The way they RRRUUUSSSHHH into that "Well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked...", well, you just nailed it! I know this whole album (original title was "Odyssey and the Oracle", a lot of re-releases are titles for the major hit on it, "Time of The Season") pretty well although it has been a while (I have it on a 25 year-old cassette tape that I as I recall I recorded with slightly too much volume...has some distortion from that in parts, but if I were to dig it out it would probably play ok...took good care of my tapes). Geez, did I remember to vote yet? Well, I will find out. Anyway, great job.

funny punchline

Very good, Guy! The story line reminds me very little of "The Tale of the Vinder Viper", in which a scared young maiden (aren't they all) calls out, "Wh-who who's th-there?" . . . "I am the Vinder Viper! . . . I've come to Viper yer Vinders." You fit the storyline to the Zombies' song like a glove. And if the glove don't fit, you must acquit.

I thought it was brilliant that you took a joke and turned it into a parody. I might have to try that in the future.
