The Lyrics

Part III of the Series of Unfortunate Events musical saga... God Bless and enjoy... ^_^
Is this the real life?
Is this from Lemony?
Our life just messed up,
Wish this is just a comedy.
Oh what a life, Look into my bro and 'sis,
I'm just a rich girl, I'm in a tragedy,
I guess it's easy come, man it blows,
Outta' luck, kinda owned,
I've heard that Count Olaf,
Just wants to steal money from me, from me.

Olaf, just killed a man,
Put a harpoon on a guy,
Pulled the trigger, now he died.
Olaf, he had blown our home,
So now I'm gone and broke and ran away.
Mama, ooh, didn't mean to leave you pied,
I would've came back home that time for dinner,
I dunno, 'bout the Count, but he just wants all our money.

Too late, ol' Poe has come,
It's chilling on my mind, when our mansion blew that time.
Goodbye, my dear lib'ry, I have to go,
Gotta leave you with my 'sis and go somewhere.
Sunny, ooh, I don't wanna cry,
I sometimes think I'd live in the streets at all.*

I see a lardy silhouetto of a man,
Mr. Poe, Mr. Poe, will you give us some bank notes?
Theatre troupe and arson, very, very fright'ning me!
Punctilio! Punctilio!
Punctilio! Punctilio!
Punctilio, V.F.D.

I'm just a rich nerd and somebody slapped me.

He's just a poor nerd from a rich family,
Living their lives in a darned travesty.

Outta luck, outta buck, will you let me go?

Count Olaf! No, we will not let you go!

Let us go!

Count Olaf! We will not let you go!

Let him go!

Count Olaf! We will not let you go!

Let me go!

Will not let you go!

Let me go!

Will not let you go!

Let me go! Ah...

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Oh puttanesca, puttanesca! Uncle Olaf, let us go.

Aunt Josephine has a drumset put aside for me, for me, for me...

So you think you can fool me with your thin disguise?
So you think you can slap me and leave me to die?
Oh, Sunny, won't let you mess up, Sunny,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

He just wants our money, Lemony can see,
He just wants our money,
He just wants our money, from me.

Anyway, this book slows...

Never saw the movie but this was good

I'm not familiar with the Snicket oeuvre, but congrats on tackling this monster, and thanks for an idea.

Thanks. Parodying Freddie's "Rhapsody" was a bit of a challenge, and I did left bits of the original lyrics intact since they make sense with the rest of the parody.

I am familiar with Lemony Snicket's series, as my niece read these; the book's graphics are quite good/scary . . .

I find the storyline somewhat as cynical and as jaded as Grand Theft Auto IV, except that involved three wrongfully accused kids and a sadistic count. It may have sparked criticism and controversy due to its depictions of murder and violence, but if you take a good read out of it, it is a quite excellent piece of satire and social commentary for children.

Haven't seen Lemony Snicket's yet, but still enjoyed your parody, and 5's!

I'm currently reading the books as of now, although I have to admit that I'll spend hours reading all 150 or so pages.
