The Lyrics

As sung by a chorus of cartoon characters:
They'we thewwing pothcawthz of da hanging
They'we painting da pathpowthz bwown
Da beauty pawwow ithz fiwwed with thaiwowthz
Da thiwcuth ithz in town
Hewe tomethz da bwind tommithionew
They've got him in a twanthe
One hand ithz tied to da tight-wope wawkew
Da othew ithz in hithz panthz
And da wiot thquad they'we wethweth
They need thomewhewe to go
Athz wady and I wook out tonight
Fwom Dethowation Woaw

Thindewewwa, she theemthz tho eathy
"It takethz one to know one," she thmiwethz
And puthz hew hanthz in hew back pockethz
Bette Davith thtiwe
And in tomethz Womeo, he'thz moaning
"You Bewong to Me I Bewieve"
And thomeone thaythz," You'we in da wong pwathe, my fwiend
You bettew weave"
And da onwy thound that'thz weft
Aftew da ambuwanthethz go
Ithz Thindewewwa thweeping up
On Dethowation Woaw

Now da moon ithz awmotht hidden
Da thtawthz awe beginning to hide
Da fowtunetewwing wady
Hathz even taken aww hew thingthz inthide
Aww exthept fow Tain and Abew
And da hunchback of Notwe Dame
Evewybody ithz making wove
Ow ewthe expecting wain
And da Good Thamawitan, he'thz dwething
He'thz getting weady fow da show
He'thz going to da tawnivaw tonight
On Dethowation Woaw

Now Ophewia, she'thz 'neath da window
Fow hew I feew tho afwaid
On hew twenty-thecond biwthday
She awweady ithz an owd maid
To hew, death ithz quite womantic
She weawthz an iwon vetht
Hew pwofethion'thz hew wewigion
Hew thin ithz hew wifewethneth
And though hew eyethz awe fixed upon
Noah'thz gweat wainbow
She thpenthz hew time peeking
Into Dethowation Woaw

Einthtein, dithguithed athz Wobin Hood
With hithz memowiethz in a twunk
Pathed thith way an houw ago
With hithz fwiend, a jeawouth monk
He wooked tho immacuwatewy fwightfuw
Athz he bummed a thigawette
Then he went off thniffing dwainpipethz
And wethiting da awphabet
Now you wouwd not tink to wook at him
But he wathz famouth wong ago
Fow pwaying da ewectwic viowin
On Dethowation Woaw

Doctow Fiwth, he keepthz hithz wowwd
Inthide of a weathew tup
But aww hithz thexweth patienthz
They'we twying to bwow it up
Now hithz nuwthe, thome wocaw wothew
She'thz in chawge of da thyanide howe
And she awtho keepthz da tawthz that wead
"Have Mewthy on Hithz thouw"
They aww pway on penny whithewthz
You tan heaw them bwow
If you wean youw head out faw enough
Fwom Dethowation Woaw

Atwoth da thtweet they've naiwed da tuwtainthz
They'we getting weady fow da featht
Da Phantom of da Opewa
A pewfect image of a pwietht
They'we thpoonfeeding Tathanova
To get him to feew mowe athuwed
Then they'ww kiww him with thewf-tonfidenthe
Aftew poithoning him with wowthz
And da Phantom'thz shouting to thkinny giwwthz
"Get Outa Hewe If You Don't Know
Tathanova ithz jutht being punished fow going
To Dethowation Woaw"

Now at midnight aww da agenthz
And da thupewhuman twew
Tome out and wound up evewyone
That knowthz mowe than they do
Then they bwing them to da factowy
Whewe da heawt-attack machine
Ithz thtwapped acwoth theiw shouwdewthz
And then da kewothene
Ithz bwought down fwom da tathewthz
By inthuwanthe men who go
Check to thee that nobody ithz ethcaping
To Dethowation Woaw

Pwaithe be to Newo'thz Neptune
Da Titanic thaiwthz at dawn
And evewybody'thz shouting
"Which thide Awe You On?"
And Ezwa Pound and T. Ethz. Ewiot
Fighting in da taptain'thz towew
Whiwe tawyptho thingewthz waugh at them
And fithewmen howd fwowewthz
Between da windowthz of da thea
Whewe wovewy mewmaidthz fwow
And nobody hathz to tink too much
About Dethowation Woaw

Yeth, I weceived youw wettew yethtewday
About da time the doow knob bwoke
When you athked how I wathz doing
Wathz that thome kind of joke?
Aww thethe peopwe that you mention
Yeth, I know them, they'we quite wame
I had to weawwange theiw fathethz
And give them aww anothew name
Wight now I tan't wead too good
Don't thend me no mowe wettewthz no
Not unweth you maiw them
Fwom Dethowation Woaw
