Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Holy Robert Lund Recording, Batman!
He was a tall, moody man
And a billionaire orphan
He looked a bit like George Clooney
His partner was young
With excessive endorphins
And certifiably loony

They had awesome abs and triceps
And their hair smelled great
They said it's platonic
They said they were straight

They had one thing in common:
They looked good in tights
They wore Lycra and latex
On those crazy Gotham nights
And it was

Life in the Bat Cave
Surely they could use some blinds
Life in the Bat Cave

(Are you with me so far?)

Holy bat guano!
Holy bat bong!
Alyssa Milano!
Is not in this song

They had all the right gadgets
And their crib was unreal
With the Alfredest butler
And the battest mobile

They had bats in the belfry
Batshit insane
Was the whole city clueless?
Dude was clearly Bruce Wayne

Out every evening
Finding hotties to save
So who pimped the grotto?
Extreme Makeover Cave Edition?

Life in the Bat Cave
Call me on the Fruit Bat Line
Life in the Bat Cave

Life in the Bat Cave
Wear a cape - all the time
Life in the Bat Cave

Jokers and Riddlers!
And Penguins and worse!
Meant less time for drag-racing
With the Ghostbusters' hearse

Bruce said, Listen Robin
Why are crooks all costumed freaks?
All our wacky nemesis-es
Must have been drama geeks

Dick said, Call the doctor!
Last week when I got smashed
I must've messed with Poison Ivy
'Cause now I've got this rash

They were the gothest goths in Gotham
Livin' out the bat dream
Though people yelled out, You BAT!
...For the other team
And it was

Life in the Bat Cave
Ain't that Christian Bale just fine?
Life in the Bat Cave

Life in the Bat Cave
Kickin' bats - takin' names
Life in the Bat Cave

[Sorry I missed your BAT mitzvah.
I was in BATon Rouge.
With an acroBAT.
On sabBATical.
Playing Mortal KomBAT.
...Hey, look, it's Casey at the BAT.
Heh heh.]

I don't know why, but Batman parodies tend to be better than Superman parodies (must be the whole "B&R are gay" idea), and this one may be the best one yet. Yes, as Gothamites go, they are gother than most. At least you managed to filter the Ambiguously Gay Duo question with Robin fooling around with Poison Ivy. In the immortal words of Cosmo Kramer, "Uma, Jerry... Uma!" (Though, shouldn't she have been named Poison Sumac?) This must have been a tough one to write, but I'm glad you didn't Bale out on it.

The Alyssa Milano line wins my non-sequitor of the month award. Brilliant job here!

This is so damn good, if we had a Hall Of Fame for parodies here....(Somebody start a Thread on the Messageboard)....this would go straight in without the mandatory 5 year waiting period. But first, to avoid the Bonds/McGuire/Sosa scandals, we should probably test you for steroids first. Your brain muscle is obviously overdeveloped, and methinks you are juiced. My favorite Parody Of The Year, so far, although I have missed several months of submissions this year. If Demento doesn't play this, he truly IS demented. Keep 'em coming, man.

Big sound-effects-laden bat-thanks to Jeffaroo & Local Celebrity & e.e. rhodes & M. BoTox & St. Matthias & Michaelopedia & MasonjaR & Rantyn Rave & Aggro & Midol Bait!

Dee: I do have a muscle that's overdeveloped, but I probably shouldn't say here which one it is. I have sent this song to the Doc; we'll see if he can find a use for it. Have you and/or Rick sent him "Sixteen Sons" yet?
Matthias - September 15, 2006 - Report this comment
I forgot to add that The Gothest Goths in Gothem sounds completely Suessic!

Spaff, I sent "Sixteen Sons" to Doc...mailed an MP3 on Tuesday, snail mail, so it should get there this year. I don't know if he has a way to email MP3' do you send yours in?

Wow! Very funny, and outstanding recording. TMGLTMSIOMO: "you BAT!/ ...For the other team". The guitar work sounds especially close to TOS: did you build the song from the ground up or were you able to buy a good karaoke track? If it is the latter, please let me know where you got it.

thank God I'm getting your downloads to play now, Spaff, because I would NOT have wanted to miss this one - totally loved the ending (had me LOL-ing) and the BAT for the other team get was brilliant, and the pimping the grotto, and the whole holy-taking-the-piss-out-of-us Batman thing....yes Robin, but remember young man, that taking the piss is every law-abiding American citizen's right...golly yes Batman...555

Holy parody, Spaffman! This is bat-tastic! And Alyssa Milano isn't in the song because she's busy sliding down the batpole. - September 17, 2006 - Report this comment
Wow - I appreciate the response y'all. Thanx, St Matthias (even more) & Tea Jay Sea & Smeagol & Lucky Charns & Hammond It Up & Wrecks (heh heh)!

Dee: I usually put it up on my site and email him the link, then follow that up by mailing him a CD burn. I look forward to seeing your song on his playlist.

Ant in Chains: Thanks, and I don't know - I'll see if Robert will answer that.

s2art: Ooh - you've just given Michael some stiff competition for the best comment award. We'll have to try to get Burt Ward in here to judge the finalists.

Great stuff as allways Spaff!!! I wonder if Adam West knows about this song....LOL!!! - September 23, 2006 - Report this comment
Shawna: If you're gonna say stuff like that, then please come around more often.

Spoof-Man: Well, SOMEONE keeps calling on the Bat Phone. I suppose it could be him, but I never answer the thing anymore. Ever since Robin filled out one of those "Win a Free Kitchen Makeover" forms at the mall, it's always just freaking telemarketers.

So if you're a Batman fan, today is like Christmas and your birthday combined. In honor of the release of The Dark Knight, Robert and I revisited this one and made a couple of tweaks to it. Dr. Demento opened Sunday's show with the "new" version, which you can get free from The Funny Music Project by following the link above the lyrics.

And Red Ant: Sorry it's taken me two years to answer your question. Robert created the backing track from scratch. He's a bat-ass musician.
