The Lyrics

This is the 4th Freddy Krueger parody of a song from the ‘82 album “Abominog.” The reason why I typed “Uriah Heep/John Cougar Mellencamp” is because John Cougar Mellencamp, known for his #1 hit “Jack & Diane,” did “Hot Night in a Cold Town” before Uriah Heep did, back in the early ‘80s. In other words, this FK parody can also be credited as my first song parody of a southern rock song, which is the song by John Cougar Mellencamp. I do not listen to country music, but I like southern rock. Anyways, this FK parody is where Jesse checks himself in a rundown hotel at a new town, where he sees another Elm Street. He would be like a couple blocks away from that Elm Street.
I got off the bus...with all my bags
Checked in the worst hotel
There’s too many cockroaches
Crawling all over walls and ceilings
It all ain’t well
I hear wailing of ghostly sounds
Of dead children
Buried under the ground

Something is not right
In this new town
And it’s just a bad night
In this new town

There is no good food
In the restaurant
Rotten salmon
And a stale wedding cake
The TV’s broken
In my hotel room
I fear the slasher
Might be at a nearby lake
Freddy Krueger is a disgrace
He’s such an evil man
With an ugly pizza face
And I see

Elm Street
In this new town
And I sense Freddy’s feet
In this new town

Well, I see there’s no computers
Or any Wi-Fi
To access around
My cell phone is out of service
No way for 9-1-1s
Cause there’s no red phones around

And that’s just
Not right in this new town
Got me, got myself a
Bad night in this new, new town
New town

Something just ain’t right
In this new town
Freddy’s such a fright
When he’s around

I’m wasting this night
In this new town
It doesn’t feel right
In this new, new town

Such a bad town
Sounds like a hotel near a graveyard! Creepy, isn’t it? Anyways, four Freddy song parodies down, six more to complete my third Freddy album parody.
