About this song: "Wuthering Heights" is track #6 on her debut studio album, "The Kick Inside", released on 17 February 1978. The power ballad topping the UK Singles Chart and also reaching the Top 20 internationally.

Song Parody Fragments:

"Running Up That Hill"
Better Lyrics:
When he comes inside,

we all call out "Norm!",

and he gives us a witty comment.

He's sitting on that stool.

He's guzzling that beer.

He's running up that bar tab.
Original Lyrics:
If I only could,

I'd make a deal with God.

And I'd get him to swap our places.

Be running up that road.

Be running up that hill.

Be running up that building.
