The Lyrics


The old master's work is as 'cocky as ever!

YouTube original Chipmunk version
~
I am The Hitchcocker who framed his shots askew
I am The Hitchcocker whose plots were twisted too
This Master Switch Shocker'll scare the poop from you
When you watch—
Fren-zy, West-North-North, Psy-cho, Stranger-Danger Sha-dow
Wrong-Man, Fright-Rope-Boat, Spell-bound, Bird'er-Murder-Win-dow
~
Fren-zy, West-North-North, Psy-cho, Stranger-Danger Sha-dow
Wrong-Man, Fright-Rope-Boat, Spell-bound, Bird'er-Murder-Win-dow

I am The Hitchcocker who forged Suspense Noir
I am The Hitchcocker who gorged on Le Bizarre
You watch some Hitchcock and you'll shower in Kevlar®
'Cause you saw—
Fren-zy, West-North-North, Psy-cho, Stranger-Danger Sha-dow
Wrong-Man, Fright-Rope-Boat, Spell-bound, Bird'er-Murder-Win-dow
~
Fren-zy, West-North-North, Psy-cho, Stranger-Danger Sha-dow
Wrong-Man, Fright-Rope-Boat, Spell-bound, Bird'er-Murder-Win-dow

I've been frickin' frightnin' folks through fifty film sensations
And everyone agrees I'm pretty smart
My 'audience-as-voyeur' was my crowning inspiration
Well that and shovin' shivs straight through the heart!

I am the Hitchcocker, très portly in black suit
I am the Hitchcocker who's Norman 'don't compute'
Today these copycats my genius *so* dilute
They crank out—
Gore-bore, Blair Bitch-Kitch, Wrong-Ring, Up'y-Chucky Chainsaws
Shock-Schlock, Saw so-so's, Dead-Fred-,Shallow-Hallo--, Lame-Jaws!
Then reprise—
*More* Gore, Blair Bitch-Kitch, Wrong-Ring, Up'y-Chucky Chainsaws
Shock-Schlock, Saw so-so's, Dead-Fred-,Shallow-Hallo--, Lame-Jaws!

(Music: Funeral March Of The Marionette) Good E-ven-ing! Bravo, T.J.C! You pulled this off without a "Hitch". ;D

'And now.....for tonight's drama...we have a 555 special'! Great tribute to the master!
Christie Marie M - March 12, 2010 - Report this comment
You "Hitchcocked" your way out of this one, TJC! Well executed satire! Installed 5 "rear windows", screeching 5 violin chords from that "Psycho" stabbing, and 5 flocks of "birds"fly with this one!
Andy Primus - March 12, 2010 - Report this comment
Great trib to a great movie maker. Always thought Rear Window & N By NW were his best (prob because CG & JS are 2 of my fave US actors)
AFW - March 12, 2010 - Report this comment
And now..for a very commercially correct parody
Fiddlegirl - March 12, 2010 - Report this comment
I *still* get nervous when I see a flock of birds gathered together in a tree or on a lawn!

555 for terrific wordplay and "dead"-on commentary of today's thrillers- which, by comparison, don't at all.

You ommitted one of my favorites: ~MARNE~, 1964 with SeanConnery ( Hot Man ! ) & Ms Tippi. Check it out .
Phil Nelson - March 12, 2010 - Report this comment
Goodevening. It's a classic. 555 birds

High-contrasty, innovative-storyboardin', frame askew, ten-minute take, POV, contra-dolly-zoomin', actors-are-my-cattle thanks out to:
OMR--Thanks for refreshing my mem re the Marchin' Marionettes...dada-da-da-da-dada-da-da!
Mark Scotti--Appreciate it!
Christie--Love the ref to the 'screeching violins' sans too much actual violence!
Andy--Thanks, N by NW also my fave (don't tell Alvin!)
AFW--Thanks... if I can't be PC, CC'll have to do!
Fiddlegirl--Appreciate it! (and thanks for not calling it a flockin' failure!)
unHitched--my harte belongs to Marne... Nixon, that is!

Great take on Hitchcock, but you forgot Marnie
Jonathan S. - March 12, 2010 - Report this comment
Incredible wordplay, and the last chorus was indeed an accurate summary: Today's "thrillers" are truly for 'the birds.' 556

What a tough OS to parody, very fun too. . .
Mount Rushmore Like These Up Here! - March 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Would you kindly tell that jerk to leave my noses alone?

Such an incredible job of fitting the titles/synopses into the difficult scansion of the refrain that for once, repeating choruses is is a delight, rather than a nit. But what's with all this bibliography, reference, ibid, and fooTTnote stuff? ;-)

Voted you South by Southwest with a full spin above the half-pipe. (That's 360 degrees + 195 = 555.)

Thanks 'Mount Rushmore'! Really ppreciate the thoughtful comment@clever.tom... But I was under the impression that these days you're thought of more as a gigantic pile of Oxycontin than a national monument!?
Kristof Robertson - March 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Wowsers! A wonderful tribute to one of the greats....and brilliant job with shoehorning the movies into the "oo ee oo ah ah" refrain! 555
TJC - March 27, 2010 - Report this comment
Belated thanks out to Tim, Jonathan, BAD and the inimitable Kristof... Much appreciated

Gooood eee - ven - ing...
