The Lyrics

Part of my "50 Shades of Pop" self-challenge. A teenager is on the run from a deadly killer...guess which one!
Ah, ah
I'm gettin' drowzy, I can't lie down
Because he's comin', comin' after me now
He won't just stab you, that's borin', please
He's gonna murder, murder you in your dreams
Whether in a huge shower of blood
Or by usin' that Powerful Glove
He'll end your existence either way, he's crazy
Gonna leave much more than a big scar
With that freaky glove, that's his trademark
With puns spewin' from his messed-up fa-ace

Krueger, Freddy
Watch out, cause he'll kill you in your sleep
Your worst fears will quickly
Be used by him to murder with glee
Or he'll use what you're lovin', twist it with spite
Like that fan of puppets, strung up, ri-ight
Krueger, Freddy
One encounter then you're scared to sleep
Ey, ah

In life I heard he was quite messed up
A kiddie-killer, killer of kids, that sucks
So all their parents, swift revenge, they took
Inside a boiler, boiler room, burned him good
Should've stayed dead, but no, he did not
Made a deal with demons or some rot
To come back and kill more kids one day, that's freaky-y
Don't ask me how I found all this out
Not the point, that's to warn you about
The dream-walker with the crispy fa-ace

Krueger, Freddy
The unendin' nightmare of Elm Street
He died here and now he
Wants to murder ev'ry single teen
Or at least those whose parents killed him that night
Though I doubt he'll stop there, bet I'm ri-ight
Krueger (Krueger), Freddy (Freddy)
Seems to come back after each defea-ea-ea-eat

How's that rhyme go? One, two; Freddy's comin' for you
Three, four; you'd better lock up ev'ry single door, it's true
Five, six; best go and grab your precious crucifix
Don't know if anybody's tried that particular trick
Doesn't matter, seven, eight; now I'm gonna stay up late
Nine, ten; you know I'll never sleep again, cause

Of that Krueger, Freddy (creep)
Don't know how to end his murder spree (murder spree)
Cause I fear (cause I fear) he won't leave (he won't lea-eave)
Til this franchise stops makin' money (not likely)
Look, I don't know if movin' will help our pli-i-ight
Hard to think with all the sleepless nights (yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah)
Krueger (Krueger), Freddy (Freddy)
Is there no way to escape his reach (fro-om hi-is rea-each)?
Krueger, Freddy (wooh)
No, I haven't seen him myself, see (no-o, no, see-ee)
Overhear (overhear) other teens (other tee-ee-eens)
Screamin' his name while I'm tryna sleep (so, so, so)
After doin' some research, made up my mind
I will never sleep another ni-ight
Krueger (Krueger), Freddy (Freddy)
That is why I just drank all your V (all your V, all your V)

Ah, hoo!

As a stickler for pacing, I'm never sure whether to mark out the times where a vocal breath is taken right before a word ("A-Sugar, a-yes please" as opposed to just "Sugar, yes please"). This time I erred on the side of "not necessary".

Great title sub, and you covered the movies pretty well. Although, I think you may have forced the "One, two..." jingle in there a bit too forced for my liking. But still a solid, scary piece of business.

Love Nightmare on Elm Street and you included some good refrences like the poem & the puppet death scene which is great.

"Drank all your V"? Huh? But anyway, a great tribute.

(ABC) Really really fun, man! I love horror movies and Freddy is my all time favorite,, so I really dug this. I agree the Freddy chant was forced, I appreciate the try, but it was really disjointed and awkwardly phrased. I liked the other references you pulled, and being a huge fan of the franchise, I would've loved to see more. Like the time her turns a girl into a cockroach! That was insane! I totally get that you would want to make it a bit more general for non-fans like myself. This was so freaky cool. Freddy would love it!
