The Lyrics

This is meant as only a parody. I don't condone wrecking things--metal is a high energy release for many. I thought of the title as I was listening to the radio. Part of my parody deals with some stereotypes associated with metal--that all fans are crazy, and full of anarchy, when it's all about havin' a good time.
Listenin’ to Slayer




Once upon a time
Not so long ago
Tommy used to listen to pop
Then he went on strike
He's found some hard rock...it's rough, so tough

Tina plays the metal all day
Thrashing all she can, she thrashes all day
Gore blood – more blood

She says: We've got to headbang and thrash for naught
'Cause the devil makes ‘em shiver
And we shake it real hot
We'll mosh all over in parking lots
and shove – yell “Slayer’s the tops”

Weird headbang hair
Listenin’ to Slayer
Shake and slam and we'll break stuff and swear
Listenin’ to Slayer

Tommy’s playin’ Slayer, not Bach

Now he's boldly playing his tunes

He walks his walk - so tough, he's tough

Tina screams and thrashes away
Then she rides in the night
Tommy rasping: Baby it's real hell to pay
We've got to headbang until we drop
'Cause the metal keeps me riffin’
And we shake it real hot
We've mosh all over in parking lots
and shove – wear riveted tops

Weird headbang hair
Listenin’ to Slayer
Shake and slam we’ll break stuff and swear
Listenin’ to Slayer
We've got to headbang sweaty or not
You live by the sword when it's die by the sword
Weird headbang hair
Listenin’ to Slayer
Metal band and the mosh pit – O yeah!
Listenin’ to Slayer!
