The Lyrics

This parody is based upon the live version on Iron Maiden's 1996 greatest hits album, "Best Of The Beast", which includes the prolongment of words, audience participation, and speech that is not a part of the original version of the song's lyrics. This parody takes into consideration every single word sung or spoken in this particular live version, and is therefore worded exactly (including things that aren't actually words, and with no parts lazily labeled "[chorus]").
I am a cat who sits alone
And when I sit in a dark room
At night and typing at my desk

When the light begins to flee
I sometimes find it hard to see
Just little blind
When it's dark

Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a constant fear that typos will be made
Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a phobia that I'm misunderstood

Have you pushed your fingers on the keys
And have you had trouble seeing
Which letters you've been typing?
Sometimes when you fail to take a look
At the middle of the screen
You've sensed that someone couldn't read

Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a constant fear that typos will be made
Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a phobia that I'm misunderstood

Have you been online at night
Thought you typed what you had meant
And looked up to see Gibberish?
And as you squint at your keyboard
You fail to read their messages
Because you cannot see the screen

Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a constant fear that typos will be made
Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a phobia that I'm misunderstood

That's right!....

oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh

oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh

oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh....

TYPE IN THE DARK!
TYPE IN THE DARK!
TYPE IN THE DARK!
TYPE IN THE DARK!

SING IT IN O.C.D.!!!!

TYPE IN THE DARK!
TYPE IN THE DARK! One more time!
TYPE IN THE DARK!
TYPE IN THE DAAAAAAA-AAAAAAAARK!!!!

Watching You Tube Poops the night before
Debating morals and grammar
The absurd troubles on your mind
And O.C.D. is playing tricks
You sense, and suddenly eyes fix
On the keyboard in front of you!

Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a constant fear that typos will be made
Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a phobia that I'm misunderstood

Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a constant fear that typos will be made
Type in the dark
Type in the daar-ark
I have a phobia that I'm misunderstood

When I sit in a dark room
I am a cat who sits aaaaaaaa-looooooooone
