Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Down from the ceiling, ropes they're throwing
It's Skylight Crime
Laser alarm's red beams are glowing
It's Skylight Crime..
Two dark as night cat burglars
Quietly descend..
Preparing to pull a Skylight Crime

Down in the dim-lit art museum
Stirs not a sound
Caper well planned, no guards can see 'em
As two hearts pound
Thinking, as dreams are whispered..
Rich, they'll be in time
(If) successful is their Skylight Crime

Quickly and silently they move
And crawl beneath the rays
With skillful ways..
Within the glass case cut a groove
Remove the work of art
And then depart...

But parking lot secur'ty lenses
They've noticed not
Video license plate it senses
So they're soon caught
And now the twenty years should
Give them ample time..
For wishin' they'd skipped this Skylight Crime

They're wishin' they'd skipped this Skylight Crime

Love the OS and your parody. I once read in an advice column - probably Dear Abby - that a contractor was spying through the skylight on a woman in her house while she was nude. He fell through the skylight into the house. Then he sued and won.

Good pun, John...thanks, alvin...and thanks, 2Eagle..I agree, the lady had no business being nude in front of an open skylight.and exciting the poor contractor. :)

Maybe the jury got a look at the woman, in her Teddy, bare, and their sympathy went to the contractor? ... and given the ability of modern spy satellites to read a newspaper over your shoulder, bein' nude under a skylight is kinda' puttin' it out there anyway... What alvin said..
