The Lyrics

You might know me, well my name's Annabel Lee,
Annabel Lee, the one who lived so long ago.
I have lived there, in a kingdom by the sea
Yeah, by the sea, the time has come for me to go

There was some drunk, well he always bothered me,
He bothered me, the man who thought I loved him too
And he was creepy, he could really never see,
He'd never go away when I would say adieu

But he was all so creepy smiles
And he looked like an ugly boar
Just to run from him I'd walk a thousand miles
'Cause that guy I abhor

And he's smelly - yeah the stink is killing me
It's sickens me, reminds me of the number two!
And then the creepy weirdo tells me "I love you",
With his mouth that smells like someone's unclean loo

He was named for (he was named for) yes for some Teletubby
Teletubby, although which one - that I don't know
Was it La La? Well could be Tinky-Winky,
or just Dipsy, or was it Edgar Allan Poe?

So I have asked my cousin Kyle
To build one tombsone on the shore
And to tell the creep that I passed away while
I flee forevermore

Bye bye bye bye, bye bye bye bye, bye bye La La, (Tinky Winky?)
bye-bye bye, bye-bye Edgar Allan Poe
repeat...

I feel freedom - far from kingdom by the sea
Yeah, by the sea, in distant land where I got to
And still I wonder, did he yet go crazy,
(he was crazy) when heard my life's already through

What's he doing? (What's he doing?) Still obsessing over me,
He's gonna be the man who writes a dirge or two
And he'll write songs (and he'll write songs) - 'bout his dear Annabel Lee
Annabel Lee who died when chilly, strong wind blew
He's gonna be the man who won't find someone new!

But I still hope that he'll be fine,
That he would pay some trashy whore
Just to do that thing, that's better than to whine
'bout seeing me no more

Bye Bye bye bye...

Now there's a tale that I have heard
That he has girlfriend named Lenore
And the two of them have bought a little bird
And named it Nevermore...
