Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Well, this is another sort of "smooshie" parody - I'm taking the song structure, melody and pacing from "Don't Fear the Reaper' and combining it with another song by the Blue Oyster Cult, "Godzilla" and coming up with "We Fear Godzilla"...Oh, yeah...throwing in another character you may be somewhat familiar with near the end here...
[instrumental intro]

Now the monster comes
He'll destroy our town

Reasons to fear Godzilla
He's really big; his toe crushes trains

(Yes, we fear Godzilla)
Crushed the subway
(We fear Godzilla)
Like a building he stands
(Things sure look bleak here)
Over eighty feet high
(Got real big peepers)
Please don't crush me, man

Go, Godzilla, go
Please, Godzilla, go

[brief instrumental]

Monster, he's not done
Picks up train, throws down

Tokyo he's trashed and left
What a mess now, we sure wish he would leave
(He sure did leave us a mess)

The Monster, he trashed what was in his way
(Man, that sure made a mess)
He stood up and he roared; it brought down the rain
(Our ears - they ached with pain)
He shorted all the power here ev'ryplace
(He's a big, damned Reptile)
He's got bad breath
(The reek; quite severe)
Good thing he cannot fly
(I think that's "Rodan')
Wish right now I was high
(To help me sleep, Sir)
Now he's back - Oh, Damn!

Monster; now he's back
Wish he would leave town

[Instrumental break]

Tokyo; in ruins
Not much left of town
Hope that tonight
he stays home
Maybe there is a good reptile show on

Yeah, we're all hopin'
that he won't appear
When he gets moody
he must be feared
Where's Superman?
wish that he were here
(He would not be afraid)
He would save us
(kick Godzilla's rear)
Yeah, he'd kick his can
(Superman's a great guy)
Hope he comes before we're dead
(We'd buy him drinks down at the bar)
He would kick Monster's Ass
(Yeah, he would kick it real hard)
"Supe', please save us
(We're in deep sh*t here)

[Instrumentals out to end]

Paul, this is a riot. I hope you don't mind a little criticism though.......I think it could use a little more cowbell. 555

Rick C - DRAT! I NEVER remember to add enough Cow-Bell to this piece...However, the audio version has a few frantic villager "Aiiieee" type cries towards the end...Kristof - yes, what other Gigantic, Japanese city-destroying monster has ever so captured the hearts and minds of the multitudes so thoroughly...in my (twisted) mind Godzilla is just THE Monster...all others are just pale, limp imitations...I'm only speaking of the ORIGINAL, 1950's Godzilla, not the soul-less knock-offs from any of the re-make attempts...OH...had a friend in High School who had memorized the ENTIRE dialogue for the Original Movie...complete with all the various Villager "Aiiieee's"...and could recite it verbatim WITHOUT the movie actually being on...he's probably institutionalized by now, but it really was quite an amazing feat...
