Post subject:  Filk: Watching the Macabre

(To the tune of "Watching the Detectives" by Elvis Costello:)

Little girl with a can of Faygo Red
Watching teevee when she ought to be in bed
Hugging her pillow just as tight as she can
In the lap of her beloved old man

She is Watching the Macabre
"That monster's neat!"
She is Watching the Macabre
See who they eat, eat, eat, eat!
Too young to get the dumb jokes yet
A silly vampire on a cheesy set

Long shot of the haunted house
Screaming actress with a bloodstained blouse
Cut to the shadows playing on the walls
The hungry monster charging down the halls
You munch your popcorn and swig from your pop
The terror in her heart will never stop
You don't know how much more she can take
Just hope it's due for a commercial break

She is Watching the Macabre
"That monster's neat!"
She is Watching the Macabre
See who they eat, eat, eat, eat!
And then the antics of the spooky squad
Led by the Late Marquis DeRod

The Army shows up by the final act
They're rolling tanks and set to attack
By now the monster's bigger than a city block
And time is running out from the cuckoo clock
Too tired to stay awake but too scared to sleep
For in her dreams all the monsters will creep
You know the creature is going down to defeat
But she's building a nest right there in your seat

Just like Watching the Macabre
The monster's dead
It's just like Watching the Macabre
Time for bed, bed, bed, bed
Wave goodbye to the spooky squad
And say "good night" to Marquis DeRod
Watching the Macabre
It's just like Watching the Macabre...
