The Lyrics

A song about A Series Of Unfortunate Events.
Oh, he's a mean one...
Chases the orphans to get their fortune...
Well, he'll disguise himself and fool everyone...
Except the children...

Yes, he's an actor...
He pretended to be their father...
He'll keep on trying and trying to keep them from getting away...

And when the kids say that this man wants to grab hold of them
Their banker, Mr. Poe, won't believe them
His henchmen go along with him to help him with his plan
You know, he's so cruel...

His name is Count Olaf and he'll stop at nothing
He'll try to be friends with their new guardians and then, he'll start attacking
He's got that kind of habit of being so cruel...

Chasing them since the start of the season
He won't forget about them

Oh, I'll tell you something...
If he'd give up, things would be much different, you see...
He shaved his head and let his beard grow
In order to fool their second guardian...

His name was Montgomery...
Olaf injected him with snake poison...
The next morning, they found he was dead...
They knew Olaf was to blame...

And he said that the deadly viper must have bitten him
The kids say it couldn't because it doesn't bite anyone...
They finally proved that Olaf made a contraption
Because he's so cruel...

He has an eye on his ankle in the form of a tattoo
When he's in disguise, it's the only proof he's Olaf
The way he treats the orphans shows that he's so cruel...

Why does he hate them so much?
"Because it's fun"
That is what he said...

He sailed across the ocean just to get to them
He adopted a new character that had a wooden leg
He's got the kind of habits that make him so cruel...

He'll even pretend to be female
He still hasn't fooled the orphans...

He won't forget about them
He can't forget about them
Oh, just forget about them
(Once he starts, he won't be able to stop...)
Hey, just forget about them (hey)
He won't forget about them
(No oh no oh...)
He can't forget about them
(No no no oh...)
Oh, just forget about them
(Hey no no oh...)
He won't forget about them
(Hey hey hey...)
I got this from the Netflix series. I haven't finished the series yet. Let me know what I should make my next parody about.
