The Lyrics

You know how you're watching TV or a movie (or both), and things seem to be going okay, and then creepy music comes on, and you know someone's gonna die? Or you see something creepy happen and you then expect the creepy music to come on? Well... Hey, what's behind this door? Oh, look, a basement! I wonder what's down there...
Hey!
Do it now!
Yeah! Hey!

Hey, once I was a TV watcher
watching me a crime-drama flick.
I never had no problems, yeah
finding me good show to pick.
And everything around me, yeah
stopped when creepy sound came by.
And I decided quickly
(yes I did)
someone on the screen would die.

Yeah, they was shootin' and blastin' and leadin' to some bleedin'
and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
"Play that creepy music, sound man!
Play that creepy music, right!
Play that creepy music, sound man!
Lay down the organ and play that creepy music, someone dies!"
Someone dies!
Whoa, someone dies!
Oh, yeah, yeah!

I tried to understand this.
I thought that they were out of their minds!
How could I be so foolish?
(How could I?)
To not see it was that victim's time!
The other characters kept walking.
They got stalked every step of the way.
I said, "Don't you guys go back there!"
(You must not go back!)
And, sure enough, nothing's the same.

Yeah, they was slicin' and stabbin' and leadin' to some bleedin'
and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
"Play that creepy music, sound man!
Play that creepy music, right!
Play that creepy music, sound man!
Lay down the organ and play that creepy music, someone dies!"
Someone dies!
Whoa, someone dies!

(instrumental break)

(Hey, wait a minute!)
Now, first it wasn't easy
looking while I'd hide my eyes.
And things were getting shaky
every time a new guy dies.
But now, its so much better!
(It's so much better!)
With guys like Jason and ol' Fred.
Now, I'll never lose that feelin'
(No I won't!)
of liking how guys end up dead!

Yeah, they was screamin' and growlin' and leadin' to some bleedin'
and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
"Play that creepy music, sound man!
Play that creepy music, right!
Play that creepy music, sound man!
Lay down the organ and play that creepy music, someone dies!"
Someone dies!
Whoa, someone dies!

They shouted
Play that creepy music!
(Play that creepy music!)
Play that creepy music!
(Play that creepy music!)
Play that creepy music!
(Play that creepy music!)
(repeat 'til fade)
So what was in the basement? Oh, nothing special, just my late evil twin brother Bernard's Mets cap. And some dandruff in the cap. Wait, can dandruff be used to reanimate someone? No, not possible, right? Right? Hey, where's that music coming from?
