The Lyrics

Another song parody inspired by The Witches. Another hit performed by Luke Eveshim and Bruno Jenkins. It's based upon witches who plan to eliminate children, while those boys, who were turned to mice by their Formula 86, warn future children not to be lured into the witches traps as they posed as normal, respectable ladies.
(Luke Eveshim):
Watch out! Those witches just might trick you!
Ooh, baby! They make perfect strangers.
I'm a normal little boy!
Turning to a Mouse.

Good Lord! Bruno is their first victim.
Good Lord! He's in for big disaster.
They have found another way.
(To) turn him to a mouse.

They had found me what a drag,
time for running far ahead.
It is dangerous here.
Go somewhere you'll be so far,
so they don't know where you are.
Fighting magic with magic.

(Bruno Jenkins):All Set!
(Luke): I got to get the formula!
(Bruno):Takedown!
(Luke):Those witches who harm children.
Their formula's one good recipe!
(Both): Turning to a mouse!

(Luke): It was once upon a time those witches
trapped a child alive.
They are such a disgrace!
People wonder why their kids just vanished
out of thin air.
Witches just have no shame!

(Bruno): This mouse!
(Luke): Is just not ordinary!
(Bruno): We might!
(Luke): Not want to scare nobody!
Just beware of humans' walking feet!
(Both): Turning to a mouse!

(Luke): In a large world we're so small,
and you have not seen nothin' yet!
We're all in this together!
I don't know what you expect,
those witches just have no regrets.
Fighting magic with magic!

I thought this was going to be about an actor signing to do a film with Disney.

Thanx for your kind words and vote, raddog!! I also enjoyed the movie as a child. I had no idea anybody else remembered that movie! That is so cool!! If you loved that parody, you should see "Life as a Mouseboy"! (That is also under Talking Heads: Life During Wartime)! I thought that it would be cute for young boys performing rock music or new wave!

Thanks R 'N R and very belated thanks to Mike and Kristof! :)...RNR, "The Witches" is a very fun and exciting book and I enjoyed next to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I also love the movie version of it, too!...Mike, this is actually about the 1990 movie "The Witches" based upon Dahl's children's novel...Kristof, glad you enjoyed my parody! It's been 2 years since I've posted this parody!

555, I remember seeing that movie awhile back.

Thanks, Step-Chan! :)....Yeah, it was an awesome movie. The first time I set foot on AIR was when I was a die hard Talking Heads fan (still am) and when I saw this awhile back on HBO. Thanks for taking a look at one of my outdated parodies. At the time I like to tie my fave movies and my fave song together.
