The Lyrics

The Coasters originally covered this Leiber-Stoller song, but most people know the wonderful Elvis version.....(OS available, in a new window, by right-clicking here).....I paced this to the OS's general rhythm because each OS verse behaves differently and I wanted to make it a fun read for the DKTOS majority – I also added a verse so I could finish the story (!) ..Based on a poor and short-lived career move I made a few years back
Well I was just a newbie exorcist
I wuzn't too prepared for this
solo-o-o-o-o
Til then I'd been a watcher - I
suspected there was much more I
should know-ow-ow-ow-ow
The girl to cop the exorcism
hurled a lot - and never in the
bowl-owl-owl-owl

these were
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs

I sprayed some holy water, but it
made her go cavorting up the
wall-all-all-all-all
"You!" I thundered, "Down!" - and then she
grew a hundred pounds and ten feet
tall-all-all-all-all
She growled, "It's doubtful I'll surrender"
now she sounded like Lauren Ba-
call-all-all-all

these were
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs

[BRIDGE]
I noticed in the corner while she gorged on cottage chips
4 blokes who looked like horsemen waiting for the 'pocalypse
(and then)
she SPAT her chips at one who turned all numb and serpentine
which insofar as I'm concerned's a worrying sign

I waved around her knees a cross, and
prayed "Cast out these demons God, puh
lea-ea-ea-ea-ease!"
She super-barfed and covered it in
gloopy stuff the colour of mint
lea-ea-ea-ea-eaves
The choc'late milk I'd brought for lunch she
clotted into sordid pungent
chee-ee-ee-ee-eese

these were
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs
wo-rrying signs

So now, my mojo faltering
I found my phone and called up Lin-
da Blair-air-air-air-air
She said "You schmuck, without a doubt
you'd better get the f*** right out
of there-ere-ere-ere-ere"
The girl then 360'd her head, she
hurled and screamed "Yeah, he's already
scare-are-are-are-ared!"

Goddamm...
RIGH - igh-igh-ight!!
Pet - ri-fi-ied!!
I - fled in fright
I - had no pride
Deep - in the night
me - on my bike
beat (well, not quite)
the - speed of light
etc. etc

wonderfully weird..my favorite of the day

Loved the intro comment about a poor, short-lived career move. The parody is equally impressive. The Linda Blair and Excorsist references are all great. 555

thanks alvin and Dee - my aim was to get at least 4 rhymes into each couplet - and I've been wanting to do this Elvis song (my fave) for ages :-)

Don't have headphones on me at the moment, so will get around to singing along to the OS at a later date. Couldn't resist this title, though. Did you get my Wombats verse?

I got a bit lost singing this to TOS but I think that's possibly the first Elvis song/parody I've tried to karaoke as well. Regarding the pacing/extra verse decisions, I think it was a great move overall for the DKTOS crowd (which I was before the download) and finishing the story. 5s.

thanks Luke - I haven't checked my PMs - I'll have a look

it's a very distictive tune if you know it, Jack, and it's always been my favourite Elvis song since I was a kid, with all the gradual building semitones, so maybe I know it too well if it's possible for others to get lost - thanks for going to the trouble though! :-)

(ABCW) I d/l this again since the first one was lost when my old computer died. I followed it much better this time.

(ABCW) I had trouble pacing it, but it was very funny.

Holy Sh*t!!! Great parody of a great movie, or a great parody of a great parody (Repossessed, with Leslie Nelson)

(ABC) "now she sounded like Lauren Ba-call-all-all-all" .... LOL!! You know how to whistle, don't you?

(ABC05) "The choc'late milk I'd brought for lunch she clotted into sordid pungent chee-ee-ee-ee-eese". Great line! (among others)

(ABC) DKTOS, Stu...but I'll fall in line with the other voters as far as pacing goes.
I noticed in the corner while she gorged on cottage chips
4 blokes who looked like horsemen waiting for the 'pocalypse
Now that's a couplet to write home to ma about! Funny stuff, amigo. 555

ABC: Also DKTOS, but enjoyed reading it.

Groovy OS. Still a brilliant title and theme!
Tommy Turtle - February 13, 2006 - Report this comment
Being of a different species, it's no surprise that I prefer the Coasters' version to E. Nonetheless, this was still a good exorcise in creativity. Five crosses, and hope your new career is working out better.

thanks Rick, Kristof, Larry, Jeff and Luke

thanks Tommy - yes, most turtles prefer the Coasters' version over Elvis's, yet tortoises are fairly evenly split - which has always been one of life's mysteries to me...
