The Lyrics

...norman sings...
the mode is wrong
unmanly, my mind upturned
it leaves me blue...who's in there ?...who is bared ?
i'm not strong
though she's stuffed, she carries on
it ain't healthy...i'm my mother

so on she goes
my welfare ain't her concern
gross burden is she...to bear...i get scared
for i know
she will still encumber me
it ain't healthy...i'm my mother

i've been shaken...i'm galled
i've been laden...with madness
i've been...torn apart
i've been filled up with badness
i've snuffed...cause of mother

my own thoughts slowed
while her thoughts have grown, i've learned
she will get her way...i swear...gets her share
and this crone
really weighs me down...appalled
it ain't healthy...i'm my mother
it ain't healthy...i'm my mother

How can you be your own mother? Especially if you're a guy (as the intro seems to suggest)?

`Another fantastic "Psycho" parodu. Hu, you might want to watch "Psycho", the Hitchcock film, to understand Norman Bates,

Another fine Psycho parody, alvin. As a matter of fact, I would say that for you...this is the norm.
I'm not sure why, but everytime your charactor mentions that his mother is "stuffed"...I chuckle.

Sir Alvin, The Mighty Duke 0'Dice, I guess we all have a 'monkey' on our back, eh Sir?

Good one, Alvin! Yep, I could hear Norman Bates sing it now! I saw this clip on YouTube where Bates is in jail when he hears the voice of his "mother" saying what kind of person she is and not going to swat that fly. Makes me want to go see "Psycho" again. 555! BTW, glad you enjoyed that YouTube clip I showed you last time.
