The Lyrics

As far as I know, this is the first "Die Hard" parody on this site.
He walked in to the party to try some making up with his wife.
But guys strategically infiltrated the place and threatened everyone's life.
There was one guy in the bathroom who could put an end to this strife.
The Family Matters dad became his partner, became his partner and

John McLane
you prob'ly think this film is about you.
John McLane (McLane)
I'll bet you think this film is about you
don't you, don't you, don't you?

Well he moonlighted a few years ago, and now it is Christmas Eve.
And he took off his shoes, such a pretty pair, but he won't get no relief.
And he called the cops on Channel 9, his story they don't believe.
"Hey, do I sound like I'm ord'rin' a pizza? Ord'rin' a pizza?" And

John McLane
you prob'ly think this film is about you.
John McLane (McLane)
I'll bet you think this film is about you
don't you, don't you, don't you?

(guitar break)

They killed the boss, now there's blood in his coffee, blood in his coffee and

John McLane
you prob'ly think this film is about you.
John McLane (McLane)
I'll bet you think this film is about you
don't you, don't you, don't you?

Well he got through to the LAPD, but the FBI had some fun.
And he saved his wife from that nasty ol' Kraut, who's really a Brit named Rickman.
He said, "Yip-pie-oh-ki-yay" and a word I can't say or else I'm done.
"Oh, God, I hope this film don't have no sequel, don't have no sequel!" And

John McLane
you prob'ly think this film is about you.
John McLane (McLane)
I'll bet you think this film is about you
don't you, don't you, don't you?

John McLane
you prob'ly think this film is about you.
John McLane
you prob'ly think this film is about you.
(repeat 'til fade)

Excellent Michael - This guy don't know what side of the fence he lives on anyway. And did ya know that he is a war hero just like Kerry? Same war and everything. Hmmm. I gave you fives for great pace and smart lyrics.

Um...Guy, I know you were probably making a joke or something, but that's John McCAIN, not McLane...and I think in the movie he's billed as "John Maclean".

Don't mind me. I have been at work since midnight last night with no sleep. Could have sworn that was McCain. Anyway now I know what Michael was talking about with that film thing. I thought I missed something.

Not bad. I always thought it was "McClain". Liked the "yippie ki yay and a word I can't say" bit
