The Lyrics

Numb in the face an’ the fingers…stingin’ is rife in his loins
Killin’ him slowly with poison…killin’ him slowly with poison
Yellin’ “My damn wife” his slurred words…feelin’ so sickly for so long

She heard he had a fortune…she knew she had the guile
An’ so she gave it to him…the liquid from a vial
An’ when he coughed his lungs hurt…an’ tears came to his eyes

Whack in the face from her crimpers…cursin’ his wife an’ her moods
Killin’ him slowly with poison…killin’ him slowly with poison
Yellin’ “My damn wife” his slurred words…feelin’ so sickly for so long

He looked all flushed with fever…his groanin’ was so loud
She had him bound in fetters…in dread the man was cowed
She said “This soup will nourish”…but that’s a downright con

Glum in the face as he lingers…losin’ his life on the cards
Killin’ him slowly with poison…killin’ him slowly with poison
Yellin’ “My damn wife” his slurred words…feelin’ so sickly for so long

In vain he tried to chew free…like rats do in a snare
She said “Why don’t you sue me…as if I really care”
An’ so to life he’s clingin’…clingin’ not for long

Wife’s a disgrace as he lingers…clingin’ to life as he fades
Killin’ him slowly with poison…killin’ him slowly with poison
Yellin’ “My damn wife” his slurred words…feelin’ so sickly for so long

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Argh-argh-argh-argh-argh-argh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Argh-argh-arghhh-arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Arghhh-argh-arghhh-argh-argh-argh-arghhh

Swarmin’ his place are the leechers…grabbin’ his wealth are the frauds
Takin’ his last bean is so wrong…takin’ his last bean an’ his bong
Yellin’ “My damn wife” his slurred words…feelin’ so…

He is groanin’ in pain…yeah, he is losin’ life
Killin’ him slowly with poison…killin’ him slowly with poison
Yellin’ “My damn wife” his slurred words…feelin’ so sickly for so long

When I read and sung the parody, it's like a twisted version of "Romeo and Juliet". It also got me thinking about No Doubt's music video of "It's My Life" and "The Addams Family Values" where Uncle Fester's wife tries to kill him for money. I enjoyed singing and reading your parody. What some women I know would do for money. If the wife was clever, she wouldn't get caught killing her husband. It's all good! 555.

Very cleaver one, Andy! Title sub, along with everything else, is outstanding! 555 antidotes...

About Lucrezia Borgia, I assume? Good flack, no flak here for reaming the cheesy OS. 555

Mark Scotti: I think Christie MM is closer: Sounds more like the Addams Family than the cleaver family. Can't picture June doing this to Ward. :)
