The Lyrics

This is the 5th Freddy Krueger parody of a song from the ‘82 album “Abominog.” The reason why I typed “Uriah Heep/Gary Farr’s Lion” is because that Lion band did “Running All Night (with the Lion)” before Uriah Heep did, back in the early ‘80s. Anyways, this FK parody is where Jesse takes a short walk outside of the shitty hotel, and ends up catching a ride with a girl named Alice in her red Ferrari to a graveyard. Lisa, named after Jesse’s girlfriend in “Freddy’s Revenge,” is the one who survives in my 1st FK album parody and dies in my 2nd FK album parody. Alice, named after one girl in “The Dream Master” & “The Dream Child,” would happen to be the next girl for Jesse to start dating in this 3rd FK album parody I am working on right now. Anyways, here is the following FK song parody.
(Jesse takes a walk outside that one bad hotel, and sees a red Ferrari appear in front of him.)

Hey, you remember me, Jesse?

I guess so. You look kinda familiar.

It’s me, Alice. Remember when I danced with you at a school dance in Elm Street Junior High?

I do remember. You were one of the first girls I danced with, before Lisa was my girlfriend. Unfortunately, Freddy killed her when I was in the mental hospital a few years ago.

I’m sorry to hear that. Do you need a ride?

I would never say no to a ride, Alice?

(Jesse accepts the ride, and Alice gives Jesse a ride to a graveyard. When they enter the graveyard, they discover a secret tomb. After they do, they choose to spend the night at a gravekeeper’s abandoned shed)

So we’re gonna spend the night here?

Yes, sleeping here tonight is our only way to fight against Freddy Krueger. When we’re asleep, we will enter that secret tomb.

How will we enter the tomb without a key in our dreams tonight?

Easy, when we get there, we will pull the pointing finger of the grim reaper statue to open the door.

I see. So we will kill Freddy in any way tonight.

(The music begins, and Jesse breaks into song in front of Alice)

I am getting sick of Freddy
But we will fight him to the doom
Tonight’s dream may be so fatal
Once we step in the secret tomb

We both know that Freddy Krueger
Will pay for all of his crimes
Against many teens and children
He’s just a nightmare on Elm Street
Who is just wasting our time

We’ll be fighting tonight against Freddy
Even though it sounds so bloody
You and I will both be ready
To find a way to kill Freddy

I took the town bus this morning
To get out of my old town
Then I checked into a hotel
It was the worst in that new town

And that hotel looked so shitty
I walked out, you gave me a ride
To this place to kill off Freddy
In any way and I hope that
One day, I’ll make you my bride

We’ll be fighting tonight against Freddy
He won’t destroy your Ferrari
Even though Freddy looks deadly
And his clothes are really smelly

In our dreams tonight
We’ll go to the tomb and enter
Our way into the labyrinth
A very long maze we will encounter

You are my only lady
Who could guide me right to the end
Where we both will kill off Freddy
If I save you from the slasher,
Will you be my new girlfriend?

We’ll be fighting tonight against Freddy
You are the only girl to me
We’ll sleep tonight to fight Freddy
We’ll enter the tomb with no key

Fighting tonight against Freddy
Though this fight may not be easy
Sooner or later, we’ll break free
From the nightmares about Freddy

Fighting tonight against Freddy
He won’t win against you or me
You are gonna come with me
To a battle against Freddy

Fighting tonight against Freddy
F**k yeah! We’re gonna kill Freddy

(The music ends, and then Jesse and Alice have their last talk before their bedtime.)

Are you really asking me to marry you?

I said someday, Alice. Someday. You’re the only girl in the world to me.

But are you sure Freddy won’t murder me and leave me to die in your arms?

Freddy will not kill you, like he did to Lisa. Freddy will die one last time and he won’t come back alive. We will fight Freddy together. I will save you. I will love you forever. And yes, I will marry you one day.

Well, if you say so.

Goodnight, Alice. I love you.

I know.

(Jesse and Alice fall asleep on the two beds in the shed.)
Part of the ending dialogue, where Alice responds “I know” to Jesse saying “I love you”, is similar to the part of The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo responds “I know” to Princess Leia saying “I love you.” Anyways, five Freddy song parodies down, five more to complete my third Freddy album parody. This is great! I am halfway through that Freddy album parody.
