The Lyrics

This is the 3rd Freddy Krueger parody of a song from the ‘82 album “Abominog.” This is where Jesse goes back to the townhouse from the neighbor’s house to pack his items and take the Greyhound bus from his old hometown to a new town.
On the Greyhound, on the Greyhound
Moving out of Elm Street
Freddy won’t take my life
Or kill my future wife

On the Greyhound, on the Greyhound
That bus is what I’ll take
It is no piece of cake
That Freddy’s not so fake

On the Greyhound, I’m moving out
On the Greyhound, I’m moving out
On the Greyhound, I’m moving out

That Freddy is still around
Freddy’s around to try to steal my soul
But I’ll leave this hellhole
Straight outta the old street

On the Greyhound, on the Greyhound
I’m fighting against my fears
And within a few years,
A girl will marry me

On the Greyhound, I’m leaving Elm Street
On the Greyhound, with my two feet
On the Greyhound, with food to eat

That Freddy is still around

On the Greyhound, I will depart
On the Greyhound, with some Pop Tarts
On the Greyhound, for my own heart
On the Greyhound

On the Greyhound, my ride ain’t free
On the Greyhound, I’ll pay a fee
On the Greyhound, with my PC
On the Greyhound

On the Greyhound, I leave today
On the Greyhound, out of Elm Street today
On the Greyhound, will get away
On the Greyhound, from hell today

On the Greyhound, to a new town
On the Greyhound, for my life
On the Greyhound, to a new town
On the Greyhound, for my life

On the Greyhound, today
On the Greyhound, to a new town
Three Freddy song parodies down, seven more to complete my third Freddy album parody.

Very repetitious with the line On the Greyhound which takes up twenty-seven of forty-one lines. Makes it seem like a half'parody as far as writing is concerned. But I'm generous with horror, so have some clawed 5ers from me. Best lines of NOES: I'm your boyfriend now, Nancy! Welcome to primetime, b*tch! And who could forget, Poor little meatball??? Also, when the guy says, Hey, you're Freddy Kruger, and he answers back Well it ain't Dr. Seuss!!! Hahahajaha!!!! In the future could you please do something about I Madman?

Am I taking a wrong turn on my Freddy Krueger trilogy or something? Have I not been digging in the Alan Parsons category hard enough? When you said "I Madman," were you suggesting I should've chosen to rewrite the "I Robot" album as the third chapter? I thought rewriting the I Robot album would not be quite good enough because of instrumentals. If you want me to rewrite I Robot about Freddy, like next Halloween or something, then perhaps, I could have some people take a vote on which album parody would fit my trilogy, parody of Abominog or I Robot. The part where you mentioned that "On The Greyhound" takes up 27 lines, it does remind me of Weird Al's number 27. Anyways, thank you for your honest opinion on this song parody.

As I was rereading your comment, I realized that you actually have me 5s and I thank you for it. I was also wondering if you were calling Freddy "I Madman" or something. Anyways, I will continue this Freddy album and once again, thank you for your opinion

I Madman is a horror film. It has nothing to do with Freddy or I Robot! I thought you might have seen that film and might wanna do a parody of it . Just sayin'

Not bad, though I know little about the Kruegerverse and Uriah Heep. Variation is a key skill to build here.

@Horror Fan, I did not know there is a movie called I Madman, but I will check it out when I can. @Agrimorfee Thank you for your comment. Regardless of the repetition of "On the Greyhound" numerous times, I did my best to make most lines as different as possible. I kinda thought the repetition in this Freddy Krueger song parody would be similar to Weird Al's repetitions in his song parodies like "I'm Fat," "Yabba Dabba Doo Now," and "Livin' In the Fridge." In the meantime, I will keep up the good work with this Freddy Krueger album parody.
