The Lyrics


I run a motel from my home
People stay and then they croak
If you stay here overnight
You’d better watch out for a knife
I might just seem like a weirdo
I’m insane, just so you know

You’ll hear that “Eee-Eee-Eee”
I’m stabbing you so mom is pleased
I hear you whine, but still I hack
So either stink or be attacked
The shower’s on and in you go
Then you’re slain, cause I’m psycho

Had to slay cause I’m psycho now!
Had to slay cause I’m psycho now!
Dressed like a chick with lots of stubble
And with my knife I stabbed those bubbles
Your stay here is gonna blow…

Incrimination leads to me
Although my shower’s freshly cleaned
The police think that I’m nutty
They saw that my mom’s dress even fits me
The swamp is where she’s stowed
Should I admit mom killed this ho?



Had to slay cause I’m psycho now!
Had to slay cause I’m psycho now!
Not good business for my Motel
Since I made that dame bid farewell
And now I stabbed some cop fellow
Should I heed my mom’s bellows?

Had to slay cause I’m psycho now!
Can’t ignore my mother’s grumbles
Cause you know I’m much to humble
There’s only one problem, you know…
Mom has been a corpse, Oh no!

The original is the most annoying song on Rock Band [you're doing that Parodies Rock thing, I guess this goes with that]. Great parody, 5's from me... I was almost afraid not to. xD

Very good, Matthias. Loved the "Eee-Eee-Eee" part especially.

EEE EEE EEE was very ingenious, cries out for a recording! Wonder how many Norman Bates themed parodies there are on site?

(ABC) There were a couple of funny lines (mainly the "Eee-Eee-Eee" bit), but otherwise this just felt like a plot synopsis of Psycho. Although hearing the plot of a Hitchcock film to the OS is very amusing in itself. A couple of pacing stumbles here and there. This'd probably work better as a recording than just text, IMO. Still worth 555
