The Lyrics

This only makes sense if you've seen John Carpenter's masterpiece "The Thing"
This is the Thing
Big slimy Thing
This is the Thing
Meaner than Ming, the Thing

Escaped from Norway's base, the Thing
Burst out a husky's face, the Thing
Took out most of the dogs, the Thing
Sprouts spider legs out of its eyes...the Thing

Can you picture what will be
This Thing and Humanity
Desperately in need of some
Stranger's form
Just to keep it warm

Lost in a frozen
Wilderness of ice
And not all aliens are so nice
Not all aliens are so nice
Thinks of us as white lab mice, yeah

There's danger in the other guys
Might be infected, baby
Weird scenes inside the rec room
Dogs were infected, baby

Copter flight, copter flight
Through the night, the snowy night, baby
Find a guy, burned to hell
Not quite a man
He's dead, and his skin is red

But fire is the best
Yeah, fire is the best
To kill it, gotta burn the rest

One by one, they drop like flies
One by one, they drop like flies
Anything it touches dies

Dr. Blair awoke before dawn,
He put his boots on
He took a gun from his desktop drawer
And he walked on down the hall
He sabotaged all the choppers,
And then he
Smashed the hell out of the radio, and then he
He got locked up in the shed, and
And they found all his notes
And they looked inside
MacReady, yes Fuchs, it doesn't want to kill you
Guys, It wants to...BE YOU!
C'mon Thing

Said MacReady, gotta test our blood
Said MacReady, gotta test our blood
Said MacReady, gotta test our blood
And find out which of us is the Thing's bud
Stuck a hot wire
In a blood pan
Doesn't like fire
So it splashed and ran
One guy's bad!

Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom

This is the Thing
A deadly ring
This is the Thing
Tentacles sting, the Thing

Blew up the whole damn base
Dynamite in the Thing's face
The Thing got blown up real good
The Thing blew up and burned like wood

That was the Thing
