The Lyrics

Well, I wasn't going to post any new submissions until the new year, but, inspired by all the excellent, off-the-wall parodies I've read tonight this one popped into my head (no voices, however). So I will make a New Year's Resolution after all: If I write ANOTHER one like this I will seek professional help. Really, I promise...I really do...OH, yeah, Spaff noted that 2nz said something really nice about my stuff, but I can't find it. Now you know I really lap that stuff up. So where is it? C'mon, gimme-gimme, give it up!
Just got home from Belleview, boy
Got some tales to tell you, oy
Thinking 'bout those crazy people
Locked behind the door
Better not start drinkin'
Messes with my thinkin'
Ooh, ooh, ooh, counting spots on the floor

There's the psycho who has revealed all the anger he feels
Took it all out on a Teacher who had done him wrong
A sign of paranoia, hearing things from no one
Eeeww, eeeww, eeeww, I will spare you the gore

Thorazine and elevil, he did not take as planned
Now he's on a high, raving like a loon
woo, woo, woo
Seeing apparitions, he is in sad condition
Ooh, ooh, ooh, can't go on too much more

Thorazine and elevil, he did not take as planned
Now he's on a high, raving like a loon
woo, woo, woo
He'll come down tomorrow, perhaps he'll feel some sorrow
Boo hoo hoo, what'd I go do that for?

In real trouble, paranoid, get locked up, that's no joy
Now a sad, pathetic creature locked up evermore
Sorry 'bout the Teacher he confessed to the Preacher
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sees blood spots on the floor.

Paul, scroll up a little bit... on the left hand side of this screen, you'll see there's a side-bar menu with links under headings. The last heading is "Other Stuff." Under that heading, click on "Messageboard" When you get there, scroll down and click on the "Song Parodies" message board. When that board loads, scroll down until you see your name. :)

Paul - you WACKY ! Take 555 milligrams of Haldol, settle down in your comfy chair, and watch re-runs of Laugh-In.

Melhi, Thank you, I would not have found it on my clueless own.

Great job Paul! Fives, mate.

Johnny D - Thank you and can I borrow some of your Haldol? I took all mine after I wrote this parody last night. I just read YOUR incredible, totally non-edible piece a moment ago (I can't remember it's title but I made a comment on it. You know, I have one in the works that would kind of dove-tail with yours in a way but it's not done. I post no rhyme before it's time so it'll have to wait a bit). . Hmmm...maybe I've got some of that prozac left over here somewhere, it might help.

Call me crazy, but I liked it.

ABD & David C. - Many thanks. David, I would call you crazy but then you'd have to consider the source.
Johnny D - December 31, 2003 - Report this comment
Paul - are you trying to tell us that trying to drive you crazy would be like trying to kill a dead man ?
Paul Robinson - December 31, 2003 - Report this comment
Johnny D - I don't know for sure, never tried that. Probably won't. But I do know that you wouldn't have to drive, it couldn't be more than a short walk around the corner or up the block.

LOL ! OK, you are certifiable!

Mehli ,thank you. I just found that tribute to me because of you. I had no Idea. I'll get back to responding later... Paul good job you loon, Fives and I'll see you soon.
Melhi - December 31, 2003 - Report this comment
Paul, last night, I voted on all of yours that I had missed, that I knew well enough to vote on. 2nz has good taste, lots of gems! Sorry I didn't leave comments on each... and that I've not left many for anyone, lately. The holidays and what-not have left me feeling talked-out and drained of social energy, so I'm just as silent, if not moreso, in person, right now.

Rick, I got caught up on a bunch of yours, during the extended Rick Duncan Appreciation Week, but I still have a LOT to go... I will, eventually, get to all that I can vote on, though. I keep meaning to ask: Have you thought about grouping some of your Beatles parodies into "album parodies?" (You'd have to talk to Chucky about how to do that.)
Mari D - December 31, 2003 - Report this comment
Paul, the voices in my head all agree that this is a great parody. I liked it, too. We're looking forward to seeing you in SJ! Melhi, thanks for the tip on the message board. Sometimes I think that even I have not seen all of Rick's parodies.
Rick D - December 31, 2003 - Report this comment
Yes, Mehli. I started that whole mess by doing "Sgt Pepper" I wanted to have them loosely connected, moreso than the album. But when I got done, I just kept going and forgot the original intent. I have a very funny list of all the album titles that have nothing to do with the ones I posted, but I'm willing to bet most of them would turn up here on a search. There are still four or five I haven't put on yet, Though one will go on tomorrow to start off the year.

Paul, maybe you wouldn't be so paranoid if everyone weren't out to get you. Nicely done and BTW those committal papers have been processed along with three 5's.
Paul Robinson - January 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, I've come up for air...here I am again, only up in Willitts, CA - kicking back and visiting some long-time friends (43 years & counting). Saw Rick & Mari D at the Espresso Gardens in San Jose last night. Liked their stuff, good music, good humor & good people. Guy & Melhi, Thanks! Melhi, I understand about the comments, I personally love to get involved and put them out there but it is hard to draw a line and walk away without feeling like someone deserving is getting slighted (and for sure there are MANY deserving of note that aren't getting enoughj recognition for their work).

Alvin, Yeah...I remember exactly when I wrote this, too. Late in the evening of December 30th, my next-to-last day at my job at CCH. I was there late making sure I had whatever physical property that was mine, going over my saved e-mails, printing out a lot of writings I had put onto my hard drive there since I did not have a PC at home at that time. When I had pretty much worn myself out for the evening I came over here to check out the current entries and make comments and I started having an absolute ball...I had just reached "25 " postings, which had been a goal I was trying to get to by the end of the year and had pretty much decided to shut down my "parody machine" and not write or post anything new until 2004. I really was pretty whacked out at the time, I was gonna miss all the people there but since I knew it was ending I was chomping at the bit to finally get to that point. Anyway, I'm flying through tons of really funny parodies and loading up the comments (kind of like now, sorta). I checked the time and it was just past 11 pm, I figured I'd better wrap it up and go home. Out of the complete blue I get this totally whacked out idea for this parody. I just HAD to see if I could get it done, I didn't want to lose the train of thought. Had it done in about 25-30 minutes. Sang it all the way home that night, laughing all the way (ho-ho-ho).

Paul, this is excellent. As a future former mental patient, I can thoroughly relate. You said not to vote, so I didn't, but you get all 5's here in the comments. Great work from one wacky to another.
Paul Robinson - August 04, 2004 - Report this comment
Dee Range - Thanks! Yeah, I think a vote will reset the counter here at this time so I figured I'd just point it out to you to check it out. I mean, I guess that wouldn't end the world but...maybe the tabulation part of the site program will get fixed somehow to where new votes on old parodies won't do a reset...or maybe not...
