The Lyrics

Since Walken did a reading of the Raven by Edgar Allen Poe, I thought that is would only be a most appropiate song to parody, given that the poem in general is about someone dealing with loss of a loved one and also going insane slightly - I decided to have a little bit of a twist on this by having said creature be a real supernatural being - and as an added twist, it's Chris playing a supernatural version of himself.
It was past midnight.
And all were sleeping.
I heard some hissing coming from nearby.
I looked, turning over to the darkness.

And so I looked over once more
To my shock and surprise.
There stood the 'Walken'.
Who lurked right by my door.

His skin was pale.
His fingernails were long.
His teeth were sharpened.
His eyes were sunken.
And in aquamarine blue.
With his mysterious voice.
He spoke those words.
That I will hear forever more.

More cowbell.
Thus quoth the Walken, more cowbell.
And still the Walken remains in my lair.
No matter how much I implore
Nothing can slay him.
Nothing can tame him.
And so he lives furthermore.

Quoth the Walken, more cowbell.
Quoth the Walken, gimme more.
Quoth the Walken, gimme more.
Gimme more gimme more, cowbell.
Gimme more gimme more cowbell.
Thus quoth the Walken.
More cowbell.
