Song Parody Lyrics:

Original Song Name
Parody Song Name
Parody Author
"You're haunted by the Celtics of the night
So Jerry* take my lead, It'll be allright
Surrender all your chokes to me tonight
Well pull thru in the end

Its a cold world when your dreams swirl
Cause Russel's inside your brain
Fight the good fight, then get all tight
And it all goes down the drain
We had their @sses back in '69
How the **** did that shot go down*

Still stymied by the Celtics of the night
But Magic shake it off it'll be allright
Redemption will be yours someday some night
We'll pull thru in the end

You know that sometimes, it just feels like
That they're always gonna kick our ass
But we'll be redeemed by that Kareem guy
And put it all in the past
You can try your thug tactics, Celtics
Thats just fine
You can try to make us choke but
Not this time

We're pushing past the Celtics here tonight
So Cap'n hit that hook, well be allright
Redemption has come true for us tonight
We came thru in the end

Were gunning for the Celts again tonight*
So Magic make that hook, it ll be allright
Pull even with The Bird again tonight
Its a duel to the end

And now the scales are balanced now
Jerry Buss, wont you take a bow

Still running against the Celtics of the night
So Westie take a bow, you did allright
So go for that kid Kobe here tonight
He'll come thru in the end

"Shadows Of The Night"
It's not the song really that was banned (not that I know of anyway) but the music video for it. The video for this song from the 80s was and is banned in Germany (it's never been played on German tv to this day). It was banned because of the storyline for the video. Which wasthought up by some record executive at Pat Benatar's record company at the time. It's a black and white video and it takes place during World War II and it features American soldiers and German Nazis. With swastikas and everything. It's an OK video (no real violence or anything), but I think it's kind of dumb and boring since the WWII storyline doesn't really pertain to the song at all. The lyrics have nothing to do with and never reference anything having to do with Word War II. I've also heard because of this, and the fact that she felt the video didn't fit her image (it was called a "costume" video) Pat Benatar wasn't very happy with it. And she never again let her record company tell her how one of her videos was going to be done. It was banned by the German government because of the Nazi imagery. The German government (and I dont' blame them) doesn't like anything in the entertainment media that would appear to advocate or promote Nazism or Hitler or any of his ideas. The same thing happened with an episode from Star Trek TOS. For those of you who don't know, that means the original show with Captain Kirk and company. When the show went into reruns around the world, the episode PatternsOf Force was banned in Gemany. It's never been shown there. The episode concernsthe crew of the Enterprise going to a planet with a Nazi worldwide government. It's a pretty dumb episode. Mostly because of the really lame acting. They tried to be humorous with it, but then there's nothing funny about Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
