The Lyrics

Paramount Television's 1969 logo contains perhaps one of the scariest jingles ever composed for a closing logo, the Closet Killer. It's interesting to note that the Talking Heads referenced Paramount's one-time parent Gulf+Western in the song "Puzzling Evidence" - "Got your Gulf+Western and your MasterCard, got what you wanted lost what you had".
This logo follows the Brady Bunch
This logo's gonna make you lose your lunch
Composed by Dominic Frontiere
The fanfare makes you close your ears

Closet Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better
Run run run run run run run away oh oh
Closet Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, away oh oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah!

You start watching Mannix you can't even finish it
You're thinking about what's coming at the end of the show
Watch Mission: Impossible, your fate is sealed
Watch something once, why watch it again?


The brass fanfare gets to you
Can't sleep at night, what to do?
I think there's someone
Hiding inside my closet oh no!

Can't watch Brady Bunch no more
I think you know why that is the score
