The Lyrics

When they hear us shrieking
Ghostbusters are busting in
Unsurprising they do it all the time
When your home is haunted
You know that we’re hunted
Scream in fear and then you’ll get slimed

Float through chimneys and from sidewalks
From the gravestones or straight from an urn
To scowl’s our mission
Glisten and glow sometimes
We’ll possess your beagles until we learn

They’re everywhere we haunt
As soon as someone screams
Because every time we frighten you
We get blasted it seams
If we sprout a demon’s wings
We’ll get shot before we fly
And there’s nothing that we can do
But just try, try, try…

They carry proton packs
In order to gather
One ghost or a whole stack, they’ll send us away
They are spirit hunters, Beatlejuice ducks and covers
They won’t stop until we are decayed

They’re everywhere we haunt
We no longer can succeed
In putting loads of fright in you
Cause they catch us with speed
We used to be all mighty
Now less scary than a mime
Now there’s nothing that we can do
And it’s such a crime

Used to spook you all night
And you’d lose your mind
The Ghostbusters help you sleep and snore
We emerged from shrines
And we made you whine
But thanks to them death is a bore

We hide under the sand
Cause we are too afraid
We’ll get locked in cases or we might just burn
Tried to warn the novice
Told him to hide away
Of course he got strangled and did not return

They’re everywhere we haunt
We no longer hear pleads
We used to have fun scaring you
So frightened that you peed
We once we’re the kings
Now we’re servants with bowties
And there’s nothing that we can do
No fun once we’ve died

We are everywhere you haunt
With our weapons you’ll recede
We were hired to dispose of you
And to try to be discreet
Soon you ghosts will be in slings
And we will earn all of our dimes
And there’s nothing that you can do
So don’t even try
Cause you’ll be denied
There’s no hope

(Artistry) A serviceable, if not hilarious, work from you Matty. It was weird to have a cameo from Beetlejuice, and for the beagles to be possessed, and for the ghosts to have bowties.

(Artistry) Interesting take on the Ghostbusters films, being from the ghosts' point of view. 555 for you!

(Artistry) Frighteningly well done! Fav line: "...less scary than a mime".

(Artistry) It's a funny idea, being a fan of TOS though--I have to point out you have some odd stress pacing spots in there, and if you are going to pick on me for fat/poor/food etc parodies (despite the varying themes) I have to pick on you for being addicted to Halloweenish themes. I don't have a problem with that at all--it's kind of a staple, but just pointing it out, that you can do a theme a million different ways and be funny--which you did here. . MIMES AREN'T SCARY!!! less we forget the one in your life:)
