The Lyrics

DKTOS - Click HERE for a Youtube video of "Tin Man" by America.

This is an Alvin Rhodes inpired write. Alvin wrote a parody entitled "Rundown" that published on or about Jan 11, 2007. Pippin revived it on Jun 21, 2008 using the "random" feature on the site. Pippin commented on it and that comment caught my eye in the latest comments thread and I just had to write another Bates parody. Thanks Alvin - I've gotten a lot of mileage out of your great writes on the Hitchcock thriller 1960 movie of "Psycho". You are indeed the master of Bates gradification. And I don't have to worry about hurting my eyes any writing these.

Some come late when things are still,
When people need a quiet flat to rest themselves.
If they pick to stay at Bates,
Best watch for hectic guy lays wait for young sweet belles.

His ma always did do something to this inn man,
He was smitten, smitten by female half.
His ma only knew the reason for his seething,
And the logic of why girls are bad.

Deceived, so well was he.
When he slays these women down, down, down, down,
Croaked lass slain... bright color,
Carnage going round, round, round, round,
Soapsuds clean blood troubles.

No, laws never did mean nothin' to the inn man,
As he's slittin' slittin' these girls in bath.
He caused severed veins and lesions and much bleeding,
He gets chronic, with shears comes his wrath.

He's seized, can't leave 'em be.
When his prey is wincing round, round, round, round,
Stoked lad, blame his mother.
Finished... going down, down, down, down,
Soapsuds stream blood bubbles.

The laws did a little somethin' to the inn man,
Deemed him flippant, flippant of deadly wrath.
These flaws impaired him from reason and for grieving,
Treat his logic in funny-farm land.

Still seized, but he's not free.

Thanks for the shout out Guy. In what seems like BS on my part (but I swear, isn't), I just got up from watching Psycho (it is still going as I type) on Fox Classics. I had never seen the start of the movie. Still chucking about Janet Leigh's bras which were obviously designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, using his famed cantilever principle :)

Oh, yeah, the parody! Sorry, I had somethings in my eye :) Excellent, sums our friend Norman up to a tee!

Pip - Hope your eye is OK :;-) I had never seen the original "Psycho" until a few months ago. I had to rent it from a video store but then I ripped it off to bootleg. I could not find a copy to buy in any retail outlet that I searched. There are actually 4 "Psycho" movies that I know of - the orig and 3 sequels. I have them all. Thanks to Alvin I have gained a vast wealth of cultural diversity from my romance with the "Psycho" phenomonon. Thanks.

Alvin - it's all you that makes this possible. Thanks.

JB - Thanks Sir John.

Parody Pete - Thanks for finding this INNteresting. Writing "Psycho" parodies for a while with me were an addiction within an addiction. The first of which is writing parodies. Hi, I'm Guy and I'm a parodolic.

M'Lady - I knew you were growing tired awhile back when I was putting these out constantly. I will from here on out only do them sparingly. Thanks.

Merry - If not for the psychoness we would not need be worried about the inn-ness. Thanks.
