The Lyrics

One wonders if any song parodized here has entirely escaped a "Psycho" treatment. Indeed, tho' I haven't looked, I'd be much surprised if this OS hasn't had the treatment before. Oh well ... I wonder, too, if may not have set a some sort of record by hanging around here for 2 whole months before taking a "Psycho" whack at something. Maybe Marion Crane could've saved herself a lot of trouble had she visited a Tarot reader and heard her future thus:
"Norm Bates"

Norm Bates (Norm Bates)
May seem friendly and shy,
Too late, (Too late)
You’ll learn he’s no normal guy.
He’s mad, (He’s mad)
He is his mama’s son.
Mind’s blown (Mind’s blown)
He’ll feed you, then Marion,
Norm Bates (Norm Bates)
Will move you in next door.
Irate, (Irate)
Mom’ll say you’re a whore.
You’ll bleed (You’ll bleed)
From a fatal jab
When in Mama-form Norman thru’ the storm comes to stab.

Now, Norman doesn’t know that he and Mom are one
And when he discovers what his Mama has done
He’ll flip out at first, then in double-time
He’ll clean the scene of Mama’s crime.

Inside (Inside)
Your car he’ll swamp-sink you,
And think (and think)
That’s all he needs to do
‘Til Milt (’Til Milt)
Arbogast, PI,
Suspects (Suspects)
Norman of a lie.
When Milt (When Milt)
Follows Norm to where
He runs (He runs)
He’ll die upon the stair.


Your sis (Your Sis)
And your love, Sam Bloom,
Won’t hear (Won’t hear)
From Milt, and sensing doom,
They’ll call (They’ll call)
Sheriff Chambers in
-- And that way send the story’s plot from sick to thick

Then your sis and beau, Sam’ll, visit on their own
At the Bates Motel; Sam gets bopped; alone
Your sis’ll explore, searching for a clue;
So Norman as Norman needs to kill her, too.

Downstairs (Downstairs)
Mama sis will find
“Ms. Bates!” (“Ms. Bates!”)
She calls from behind.
When tapped (When tapped)
Mama swings around
Sis screams (Sis screams) --
She’s mommy mummy found!
Norm tries (Norm tries)
In dress and wig with knife
To kill (To kill)
Sis. Sam’ll save her life.

There will be . . . unNorm was weird!! Sir Day-Lewis aptly deserved his Oscar for protraying another weird dude. Weird & twisted seems to be the desired focus here . . .

The good news is that nearly every one of these "Psycho" parodies has been good. The bad news is that I'm running out of puns to use in the comments. It's giving me sang-Freud.
