The Lyrics

on a southwestern highway
cool cash in my care
norm yelled "glad to meet ya"
rising up from his chair
i, of course, kept my distance
i felt a shivering fright
my thoughts grew heavy
as i eyeballed him
i took a room for the night
then i walked down the hallway
i found my lttle cell
and i was thinking to myself
check out at seven and drive off like hell
then i took off my sandals
put my suitcase away
there were voices in my head, for sure
i thought i heard them say...

how dumb is this motel paranoia ?
its a lovely place...norman's full of grace
won't be no doom...its just motel paranoia
any kind of fear...needs to disappear

his mind is definitely twisted
he's got no neighbors or friends
he's such a snotty little mama's boy
he's 'round the bend
creepy house in the back yard
sweet mama's dead
some parts are dismembered
some hang by a thread
and her head is all bashed in
fleas prance on her spine
he says, "she hasn't really been all here
since nineteen sixty nine"
that's what those voices were crowing, from far away
just a dream in the middle of the night ?
its just hard to say

how dumb is this motel paranoia ?
its a lovely place...norman's full of grace
i'm getting fed up with this motel paranoia
its been very a decent price

staring at the ceiling
my body, stabbed and sliced
and he said, "mama hates all women, its clear"
i was sacrificed
for in his mother's chamber
he changed into the beast
he stabbed me with his steely knife
he was quick at it, at least
last thing i remember
i was sliding towards the floor
wounds were on my side and back
i was bloody red with gore
attacked by this mad man
who was dressed up to deceive
he's his mama any time he likes
her spirit never leaves

Other than seeing "Norm" and thinking "Peterson from 'Cheers'" before "Bates from 'Psycho,'" and "1969" when the movie came out in 1960 (considering the decay on Mama Bates, "1949" might have been more appropriate), I gotta say this was a killer parody.
