The Lyrics

Part 5 of a whole-album parody of The Dark Side of the Moon. All of the (completed) parts are linked from the bottom of this list.

(To "Brain Damage")

A herd of deer - is in the sky
A herd of deer - is in the sky
No time to stop; they've got too far to fly
Guess what "rain" in "reindeer" must imply

A herd of deer - is on the roof
A herd of deer - just smashed my roof
The eaves collapsed beneath the weight of forty hoofs
Say Santa Claus ain't real but I've got proof

And if your house breaks open where the reindeer stroll
And if your home insurance says it's bull
And if the lawyers say sue Santa for the hole
I'll see you at the North Side of the Pole

Now Santa Claus - is in my house
[ ~ Santa laughs ~ ]
Yes Santa Claus - broke in my house
I call the cops; I scream in vain
But 9-1-1 thinks I'm insane

I spray the Mace
He bolts through my chim-ney
Now something's in my sock but it's not me

And if you don't count
This assault right here
I've been a damn good boy all year
(Oh oh OH oh uh WHOA)
So fat man if you've left another lump of coal
(Hey hey HEYYY)

A couple of North Pole security guards joke about hiring Arnold Schwarzenegger to remove this latest threat - after all, he already knows the Snow Miser song. They laugh and go back to playing video games.]

Good one, Spaff. One of my favorites of theirs anyway and you captured their spirit (?) 5's

SOTM -- 555! I synched the parody to the recording while singing your lyrics and I couldn't keep a straight face! Excellent job, Spaff!

(sotm) How on earth did I miss a new album from you, Spaff? Your work is great.

I tried sync-ing this up with "It's a Wonderful Life" and it matches perfectly---- if you smoke enough POT!

(SOTM) Rated above...this is an early contender for my 3 pts!

I mistakenly voted early, but my Song of the Month vote is still Chimney Damage. I laughed my ass off reading this parody! Cheers to you, Spaff!

(SOTM) And the misunderstood Grinch was just moonlighting as a tiel repairman! Can't wait for your NSotP collection to be audio, Spaff! - January 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanx, Patagio & Chris The Trademarked One (twice) & Aggro (twice) & Ralphing Luke!
Scathe: No new albums out, alas. Just a parody of one.
RAD: Enough pot and it'll sync with anything from The Wizard of Oz to The Passion of the Christ. But you know that already.

Well, I tried sync-ing this up with "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer", and it matches perfectly---- if you smoke enough ELVES!

Personally I think that PF is a tad to artsy and that their type of arena rock got a bit out of hand before it selfdestructed in the late 70s and early 80s. But what do I know, at that time I had just gotten hooked on what was to turn into the new British wave of Heavy Metal. Now I'm old enought to apprichiate almost every type of music though so here's my 555 and a piece of Christmas Fruitcake:­l

Guys, you have to synch it up with "Die Hard"; now THAT'S a Christmas movie....Anyway, what can I say? Brilliant stuff. "Now something's in my sock but it's not me", the maniacal laughter, even the Mr. Freeze reference -- all brilliant, and I'm not even factoring in the rest of the album, which I'm of course planning to go back and comment on but on the off chance I don't *rolling eyes* it's brilliant too. I'd love to hear it recorded but like you said, not holding my breath. I bet the album cover would kick ass, though.

(SOTM) temporarily DKTOS - can't really do the listening this evening so I will have to try and access your link a bit later in the week...guess I will have to listen to the whole damn thing to see how it goes with your epic project...but I'm expecting a pretty good-sized laugh pay-off in return...gonna wait to really read this thru more carefully at that time.
Phil Alexander - January 25, 2005 - Report this comment
Brilliant, Spaff. I really must get round to doing the whole album: please get Mr Lund to record it in time for Christmas next year.

Really good laugh Spaff. Good read. - January 26, 2005 - Report this comment
Johnny DD: If you got 'em, smoke 'em.
Peterchyd: No argument here. And I'll go check it out.
C4P: Already got the cover designed. Just in case.
P-Rob: Come on - I fully expect EVERYone on the site to know EVERY original song that gets parodied.
Philbo: I'd love that, of course. I'd also love Vivica Fox to show up at my door with massage oil.
Gollum: Thanx!

So what if 911 thinks you're insane. A little insanity is a good thing. Santa's sled pullers are raining 5s on this parody. Very well done, Spaff.

Coulda sworn I commented on this earlier, but anyway: A really different and really good take on the holidays. You gotta do a group like Pink Floyd justice when you go and parody, and you have my friend. Favorite lines: "Now something's in my sock but it's not me" and Santa's laugh in place of the original crazy laughter in the original.

Good job. Not a huge Floyd fan, but knew enough to follow the song. Deer smashed through the roof...must have cost a lot of bucks to fix that! Was that too awful...sorry, bad choice of words. It must have cost a lot of doe.

Wow, excellent excellent job on one of my favorite PF songs. I have to admit I got DSotM CD in part to parody this OS sometime in the near future, but after reading this I'm thinking my efforts are going to fall drastically short of this masterpiece. This is a tough act to follow. TMGLTM but I'll say the "Guess what "rain" in "reindeer" must imply" was my favorite.

Reading and listening to the whole thing now. I guess this is my favorite so far, but that's a toss-up...the others are good too. - September 23, 2006 - Report this comment
Belated thanks, Red Ant & Adagio. Jack, are you still gonna parody "Brain Damage"?
