The Lyrics

Sings in a yell, things ’bout a spell,
loud as a klaxon horn.
It’s a voodoo-like story he tells
in booming oral form.
For screaming he had quite a yen.
Decibels loud as bells
that ring in the state of Bill Penn.
Much louder than Jacques Brel.

Sings ’bout a spell, louder than hell,
in a very ear-splitting yell.

Sings ’bout a spell, sings it pell-mell.
Tells his girl that “You’re mine!”
On her he puts a spell.
Just giving her a line?
“I put a spell on you”
is the screaming refrain.
“Best stop the things you do!”
You’re risking otic pain.

Sings ’bout a spell; he cannot quell
his so very ear-splitting yell.

But, must he yell to cast a spell?
I guess that’s just the way
he “croons”; gotta say, it ain’t mell-
ifluous…like a bray.
After he has gotten a start,
an aural storm’s released;
eardrums are blown; they’re torn apart.
And your otic nerve’s deceased.

Now, to hear well, go where they sell
aids made to swell up decibels.

never heard of this "Traditional" song, but it seems to match the pacing of "Carol of the Bells." anyway, 5s on the parody.
