The Lyrics

The OS came out in 1959, right around the time the 1960 film's murders would have taken place. There can never be too many "Psycho" parodies. Oh, you think there CAN be too many? Well... Your mama!
(instrumental opening)

It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
Don't you go to his home!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
You'll be dead 'ere long!
He's bad!
(He's bad!)
Don't give him any time!
Po-lice!
(Po-lice!)
Come and stop all his crime!

It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
About to run through that lass!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
You gotta stop him fast!
Must speed!
(Must speed!)
He's in a crazy zone!
Norman, look at your mother!
Can't you see that it's wrong?

If she'd found a hotel at a quarter to nine
she wouldn't have signed on the Bates Motel line.
But she took shower, and then it was too late.
She wigged out at Norman Bates!

Look up!
(Look up!)
Is that a loon I see?
Wow-ee!
(Wow-ee!)
Looks like the son to me!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
And so where was his dad?
Too bad!
(Too bad!)
Mom has driven him mad!

It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
Don't you go to his home!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
You'll be dead 'ere long!

(instrumental break)

It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
About to run through that lass!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
You gotta stop him fast!
Must speed!
(Must speed!)
He's in a crazy zone!
Norman, look at your mother!
Can't you see that it's wrong?

If she'd found a hotel at a quarter to nine
she wouldn't have signed on the Bates Motel line.
But she took shower, and then it was too late.
She wigged out at Norman Bates!

Look up!
(Look up!)
Is that a loon I see?
Wow-ee!
(Wow-ee!)
Looks like the son to me!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
And so where was his dad?
Too bad!
(Too bad!)
Mom has driven him mad!

It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
Don't you go to his home!
It's Bates!
(It's Bates!)
You'll be dead 'ere long!
(It's Bates!)
