The Lyrics

A friend recently showed me a YouTube music video of Europe performing The Final Countdown. The band members' costumes, hairstyles, and concert choreography inspired this parody.
They're screaming together
Butts tilted, hair swell
And maybe they'll come back
To earth, who can tell?

I guess hair is so fun to flame
They're heaving 'round (heaving 'round)
Will things ever be this lame again?
They're the vinyl bounce-clowns!
The vinyl bounce-clowns!

OH, their heads are from Venus (Venus)
Hair silv'ry and tall
So maybe their Genus
Ain't "Homo" at all

With so many fright-wigs to show
And strings to fling 'round (to fling 'round)
I'm sure that they'll all miss hair so
They're the vinyl bounce-clowns!
The vinyl bounce-clowns!

The vinyl bounce-clowns! (vinyl bounce-clowns!)
Oh...No!
The vinyl bounce-clowns!
Oh...Noooo!
It's the vinyl bounce-clowns!
The vinyl bounce-clowns!
The vinyl bounce-clowns! (vinyl bounce-clowns!)
It's the vinyl bounce-clowns!
They're squeezing in pleather!
The vinyl bounce-clowns!
They'll all miss hair so!
It's the vinyl bounce-clowns! (vinyl bounce-clowns!)
OH, IT'S THE VINYL BOUNCE-CLOWNS!

I love this song and your parody! Yeah, saw the vid myself and Europe's rockin'! Dug their silver hair as well! Also it's nice that the video inspired you to write this parody and I myself get inspired to write parodies as well when I watch something on TV or my favorites as well. Vinyl-bouncing 5's for this one!

Not familiar with this group, or the song parodied, but did some Wikipedia research, and you seem to etch a good sketch of the group and the song..

Hi JD.. been a while.. Brilliant stuff - I can definitely see where the inspiration for this one came from, and the "Maybe their genus/Ain't Homo at all" really was inspired. You going to be singing this one?

Hi philbo...thank you, sir! No plans to sing this one. Glad you like the "Genus" lines!
