The Lyrics

norman bates' mother says...norman is dizzy
too dizzy, its plainly been shown
norman bates' mother says...norman is cryin'
he wants to live life on his own
norman bates' mother says...norman is snappin'
so you'd better leave him alone

and the leglislator says...forty years more
for this deadly menace

geez....he seems crazy...if...you stay and talk to him
he's been a loner....a while
please...he's my baby...i...just want to tell him...goodbye

norman bates' mother says...norman is wack-o
he's goin' to be leavin' today
norman bates' mother says...norman's been buryin'
some folks that had wandered his way
norman bates' mother says...he don't mean nothin'
i think he'll recover one day

and the leglislator says...forty years more
for this deadly menace

geez....he seems crazy...if...you stay and talk to him
he's been a loner....a while
please...he's my baby...i...just want to tell him...goodbye

norman bates' mother says...norman's not worryin'
though everyone says he's insane
norman bates' mother says...he's quite a fella
just something's gone wrong with his brain
norman bates' mother says...he hears me callin'
and he's gettin' riled up again

and the leglislator says...forty years more
for this deadly menace

geez....he seems crazy...if...you stay and talk to him
he's been a loner....a while
please...he's my baby...i...just want to tell him...goodbye
tell him goodbye
i'll tell him goodbye
goodbye

Norman Bates mother is,...down in the basement. She's wasted to just skin and bone... I was just thinking of doing a Norman Bates parody only yesterday. 5 stabs with kitchen knife.

A friend and I used to sing TOS in the most overwrought, melodramatic way we could, just for laughs - and to mortify our respective spouses, of course. I printed this out and am mailing it to him, and I bet he'll give it fives, too.

Rats, Chuck took my joke... that one went down the drain... I suppose I shouldn't wig out over it... But this parody definitely makes the cut.

anyone who uses "geez" in a song gets my vote - of course i dont know how the heck you decided to write about norman. im sure we could discuss it but im not one for de-bates. ok, that sucked, but i had to follow in everyone elses footsteps. nice job.
