The Lyrics

Amongst other things, nostradamus is said to have predicted the death of jfk (jack).
Nostradamus
How could you predict the future
(he knew just who would shoot ya,
Long ago, jack)
Ohh, you're that french guy
And you wrote encrypted quatrains
That some use to explain how
You could look ahead

Did you see the sands of time drop by
Good job if you were able
And yet some doubt the worth of your clairvoyancy
What the future holds, most don't know
Some have found your thoughts quite stable
And they point with pride to your
Accuracy

Nostradamus
Man, you ain't foolin' nobody
Your visions are shoddy
You're way off the mark
You're nothin', yeah nothin'
Just got some crazy folk talkin'
Me..I am just balkin' at all your prophecies

Did you know back then just who shot jr
Where the bones of jimmy hoffa are
And how about deep throat's identity
Or the tour wins of old lance armstrong
Ain't it funny how it seems you're wrong
You see...

Nostradamus
I can't believe all the hoopla
Could easily scoop ya (hate being hosed)
You may be famous, but there's no hall of fame for you
You know I could easily floor you
(could easily floor you)
You know I could easily floor you
With both my eye..Eyes closed

I wonder if he predicted what happened at the 4x100 freestyle relay race as well? Great work 555 in the future.

I predict this song will get lots of 5's. I love the whole psychic/paranormal theme- very TIm Burton-esque. I love anything that's remotely Tim Burton-esque simply because it's beautiful. This song is enchanting, it really speaks to me.

"Nostradamus! Nostradamus! Something terrible has happened!"

"I knew you were going to say that."

"There's been an accident at the Royal Joust!"

"I knew you were going to say that."

"The King has been unhorsed!"

"I knew you were going to say that."

"His Majesty has been injured!"

"I knew you were going to say that."

"Hey Nostradamus, do you know what I think?"

"Yes."

"NOBODY LIKES A KNOW-IT-ALL !!"

"I knew you were going to say THAT, too."

:-D 555

(Amiright Idol) Good job on a difficult song. Although a 555 in the most normal of situations, it's not quite up there on the funny, competition-wise..

This parody is one of Gianni's finest yet. Although it is a bit dark, it is also very complex and shows the talent that Gianni has to parody songs.. Great job here and worth all 5's!!!

Thanks, Max, Alvin, Dr. Music, and Johnny D. Glad you guys liked it. Agri- I just went to Weird Al's "original" and I have to believe that mine is a bit funnier than that. I guess I can't be on target all of the time Carmelita- Some one control that woman!!!

(AmIRight Idol) Expert write to a really boring OS. . .I admit it's not one of Weird Al's best moments either which helps you in this particular competition, but I can't say this would be the funniest recording (the other two rounds were great for recording purposes), not like the other two rounds, but expert write.

(Idol) Better than Al's, but that's not saying much given his partial recording. Good topic, Gianni, and I liked this.

Thanks, BAD and Red Ant. I appreciate your comments. I thought this one was kinda fun.

Great job on a tough song, although I agree with Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller: "Where were all the 'Nostradamus people' on September 10th?"

This parody has got me entranced. It's truly enchanting.
