The Lyrics

I'd like to think that these are the full lyrics to the version of "Who Are You" used on CSI. Sort of like looking at the first five minutes of the show through the eyes of The Who; the parts of the song that are in the show are unchanged. Perhaps this should have been on The Who Sell Out album?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

They found him in Vegas hotel
The police didn't know his name
Brass said, "get Grissom and his team on this"
And the coroner rolled him away
The camera went in the gunshot wound
And came out his head sideways
Grissom made a rather witty remark
And this song began to play

Chorus:
Well, who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me, who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
'Cuz I really wanna know
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Another body was found in town
They called in Sara and Nick
Looked like a guy was crushed to death
With a big ol' pile of bricks
A cop saw him and threw up
As Nick gathered up some D.N.A.
They started working in the crime lab
And, again this song did play

Chorus:
Well, who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
C'mon, tell me, who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Ah, who the (bleep) are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?

Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

I really want to know
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Ah, who the (bleep) are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, tell me, who are you?
(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really want to know!
I really want to know!
C'mon tell me who are you?
You!
You!
Ah, you!

This, my friend, is FAN-freaking-TASTIC. I LOVE the OS...I LOVE the show...and this parody was dead on! I especially loved this:

Grissom made a rather witty remark
And this song began to play

LOL!!!

Thank you, Arwen. You are too kind. I hesitated submitting this at first because it is not a typical parody and I didn't think people would get it. I appreciate the feedback!

Now this is a parody worth reading/singing. The OS is amazing, and the show is awesome, three 5's are in order

I had to mark you down for pacing because the original has three verses, but what you have here is great (and I don't even watch the show).

You know your Who, No 56279. I parodied the radio edit because it is what's on the greatest hits compilation I have. Thank you for your feedback - your honesty helps me improve!

Okay, I didn't know there was a shortened version. Sorry about that.
