The Lyrics

Kind of works as a tribute to one of my favorite bands.

Wow. I do believe this counts as my first "two-n-one" parody (sorta like Weird Al's "Bedrock Anthem"). For pacing-judgement purposes, the "One" parody-fragment concerns only the OS's bridge, starting with "Darknes imprisoning me" and ending with "..my holding cell."

As for the titular line, just speak the first syllable quickly, like "M'tallica." And, oh yeah, and I was thinking you should maybe picture this with the backing music played in this band's style.
You parents watch out
You're gonna just cry
Your eardrums will throb
I'm tellin' you why
Metallica is comin' to town

They're makin' setlists
And they will include
All of their big hits
Not sad, but it's true
Metallica is comin' to town

They will get you head-banging
With guitars, drums, amplifiers
Did they come 'cause we told St. Nick,
[briefly break into "Fuel"]
"Gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire"?

[O-kay, back to the regular song]
So, kids, grab your mics
And sing a few bars
Or play right along
With Jimmy and Lars
Metallica is comin' to town

Now, we'll see for whom
The jingle bells toll
And ride the lightning
Up to the North Pole
Metallica is comin' to town

[music for "One" starts; parody begins]
Shoppers
Imprisoning me!
Really tight squeeze
Prices are horrid
All the hot gifts,
I cannot buy!
Crabby cashiers
Trapped in this gosh-darn mall!

A 5-5-5 vote is coming over the Cork and Kerry Mountains (as in "Whiskey in the Jar") for your great Metallica-themed parody!

Great job. I love how it cuts into Fuel out of nowhere! 5s, and hopefully you'll get to see Metallica around Christmastime.
