The Lyrics

Woke up, it was a Norm Bates morning
And the first thing that I heard
Was a chain saw at my window and the screeching of a bird
It was ripping up my reverie
And tearing my up very nerves
Oh, am I alive? Hope I will survive
I'll tear out before the night comes

Woke up, it was a Norm Bates morning
And the first thing that I saw
Was a shroud in yonder window
It was Norman's sweet ole ma
Norman shouted out, we welcome you
But his manner didn't beckon
Oh, won't you stay? I'll kill ya today
There's a victim every second

Now my curtains open and I see this creepy man
And the street's a dead end, got to fly!
Cause surely I don't wish to die
Mom will blow me away

Woke up, it was a Norm Bates morning
And the last thing that I knew
There was screaming from the shower
And I wondered what to do
And the blood gushed down the cold sidewalk
And stuck to all the fences
Oh, won't you stay? I'll kill ya today
Then I got hold of my senses

Flung the door wide open and you know I ran away
And now Norman's mother howls at night
That place ain't right, Norman's uptight,
you know I couldn't stay
Pretty baby, won't you
Wake up, it's a Norm Bates morning

DKTOS but was it my "Tarzan and Jane, Norman Bates and his Mother" comment that inspired this? :-)

Peter, no, it had nothing to do with your comment, I have just wanted to do a parody of this song, Chelsea Morning, and this is what I came up with. But your comment was funny.

Royce, If I can't go to sleep tonight, you'll be the one to blame!

Mama mia, what a parody! Yeah, I know, that joke was for The Birds, and it didn't exactly have you Spellbound. I just hope it didn't give you Vertigo. Maybe that makes me The Man Who Knew Too Much.
