The Lyrics

I'm at
I drank a Red Bull late one ev'ning, trying to stay up 'til two .
Back began bursting and it hurt--such a horrid pain
Had trouble sitting, couldn't stand or ever wear a shirt again
Next thing I knew I was floating in the air

All I know, is these strange, wings have popped right out of me
Not a dream, cannot change, I've been flying since last eve
Not on pot, or cocaine, I must strain to land on ground
I revealed, Red Bull makes wings-Oy Vei!

Thought their commercials were insane
I drank it down, pumped up my veins
I didn't know it'd cause such pain or that I would then lay eggs
How do I end this silly game
I didn't want this kind of change
I felt a tail pop out my Haines out my backside

Flying high, speed I gain, how do you control these things.
Though I try, it's in vain, I did not want big fat wings
Hear wise cracks, 'round the town, as they point and laugh at me
Can you heal, me right now, I will pray

It's after that-when these horns came
I lost control of my whole brain
My eyes turned red and I grew fangs and I forgot my name
Someone controls me, I breathe flames
and tells me that Amp* is to blame
A victim of some evil game--that's what I fear

(Guitar solo as a bunch of winged people attack the Pepsi Amp plant and the creators

of Monster*)

Oh no the voices start again
I should have stuck to drinking gin
I really didn't want to sin or chase the world today
I was just on a study binge
but now all mortals make me cringe
Now it's on heroes our lives hinge to end night-mares.

Now I feel, my eyes change, feeling that the chains released
Yes it seems, no more pain, wings falls off-I'm not a beast
Fin'lly land, on the ground, Yes the evil plot is toast
World will heal, saved by cows--Chic-Fil-A

(The Moral: Eat More Chicken!!)
Red Bull, Monster and Amp are popular energy drinks

Great take on those stupid Red Bull commercials, Don't really know what gave you that idea for this song but it was brilliant nonetheless. Also like the shout out to Chic-Fil-A and the end of this parody... I don't know whether it's Red Bull you're drinking to give you this crazy ideas for something a little more high octane.

(Artistry) All those drinks tasted like sugared up Mountan Dew to me. I like how you made a wacky story that could easily be construed as a satanic parable by biblethumpers...which has happened to many an Iron Maiden tune! Points for originality on this one.

(Artistry) My first thoughts when I read the title were "Red Bull? Nah, not likely". Thanks for proving me wrong, and doing it with a brilliant parody to boot. 555!

(Artistry) You drank a whole case of Red Bull before writing this, didn't you? Brilliantly twisted.
