The Lyrics

Fans of the original series will understand; based on the episode that Burgess Merideth played a fellow (who worked in a bank) that just wanted enough time to read. By the way, I don't know how Santa got mixed up in all of this . . . --Ol' JB
(somewhere in a lonely bank vault, there's a Burgess trying to read and
eternal fate has turned it's back on him, it's two a.m...........)

It's two a.m., the ceiling is gone
She blew it away with her old shot gun
Maybe Rod Serling is tired of takin' his chances
Yeah there's a bomb on the loose, words are in his head
He's wrapped up in a book, all the people are dead
A new episode, my whole night spins into a frenzy

Help I'm tunin' into the Twilight Zone
Burgess Meredith, he has been cloned
He looks like Floyd the Barber under moon and star
Where is he to go, now that he's played his part
Help I'm tunin' into the Twilight Zone
Poor Burgess can't read, with out being known
His wife tore up his book and she went too far
He was the only one safe, down in the vault
Soon you will come to know, when you enter The Zone
Soon you will come to know, it's The Twilight Zone

Burgess in a spiral, destination unknown
Santa Clause messenger, all alone
Then he dropped his glasses, can't see now, where are you
Well the night weighs guilty on his heavy mind
This far from free reading time
and when the plot twist comes
he knows dern well he has been cheated

Help I'm tunin' into the Twilight Zone
Burgess Meredith, he has been cloned
He looks like Floyd the Barber under moon and star
Where is he to go, now that he's played his part
Help I'm tunin' into the Twilight Zone
Poor Burgess can't read, with out being known
His wife tore up his book and she went too far
He was the only one safe, down in the vault
Soon you will come to know, when you enter The Zone
Soon you will come to know, it's The Twilight Zone

I loved that episode. Instead of "spins into a frenzy" you coulda said, "the poor guy turns into a Penguin." Anyway, great job.

A great parody of one of the best TZ episodes.......aside from the one where the doctors and nurses are aghast over the woman who is "horribly disfigured"
