The Lyrics

Your soul's been infected a smidge, dear
So I've got to expunge what's within, dear
Might hurt like hell, guess it's fitting, oh well
Let us dance to the exorcism tango

First, I'll read out this eviction le-etter
Please sit still, don't reach out for my member
I'm not the guy desi-ires will break, right
Let's just dance to the exorcism tango

Out thee, I cast
You devils, leave this lass
You great pains in the ma-ass
That pun was sinful, geez
I still entreat
For you to calmly leave
Don't make me roll my-y sleeves
And play Newsboys CD's

If I've translated this Latin horribly
Well then this might get a tiny bit vomit-y
I hope I'm a liar, your soul's safe from the fi-ire
And that all you desi-ire is a mango

Round your head goes
You a contortionist, love?
That's way too far a twist, love
Guess I'd better press on
This is getting quite gross
Got something in you-ou-our teeth, love
Some black goo undernea-eath, love
Hope it's barbecue sauce

Think there's something wrong with your digits
Makes me wish that I was more religious
Nails are tainted black, getting real sharp, oh crap
Think that I've failed the exorcism tango

How did I fail?
I missed not one detail
And now you've grown a tai-ail
And wings and horny parts
Oh bloody hell
I think I cast a spell
To possess you more, well
I'd better re-check my charts (gulp) dear me

Upside down, that's how I was ho-olding
Should've paid attention when unfo-olding
And now my life is forfeit, cause I
Failed the dance called the exor...cism tango

Yay! Somebody else has done this song :-) Nice job (some of the rhymes are just off enough, but some of them are maybe just a bit too assonant), but a fun storytelling :-)

A great spoof of my favorite Lehrer song. Love the title sub and the "mahogany/vomit-y" rhyme was hilarious. The switch at the end was really fun too...better than if you would have made it a successful exorcism. Solid work!

A compelling parody, to be sure (yar yar). Subtle Christian pop music reference of the Newsboys is a plus (Amy Grant would have been a more clear joke, but that of course couldn't pace well!).
