Really Awful Stranglers in the Night – Just as a Choke

*proudly* I can do Really Awful Artwork, too!

 

As a public service, I thought it would be a good idea to update soppy songs like the following one, to bring them more in tune with modern times:

 Stranglers in the night
Look for a victim
Lurking out of sight
And now they’ve picked ‘em
 Wanting a good choke
   Before the night was through 

Something in that throat
Was so inviting
Something in that  neck
Was so exciting
Something one could squeeze
  Until they’re turning blue 

Stranglers in the night, two lonely people
Separate stranglers in the night
 Up to the moment when
  We said our first hello
  Little did we know
 Murder just a glance away
 A throat-embracing dance away 

And ever since that night we’ve been together
Partners at first sight, to kill forever
 It turned out so right
 For stranglers in the night 

Isn’t that so much better than the boring one sung by Frank Sinatra? :- 

Strangers in the night
 Exchanging glances
Wondering in the night
What were the chances
 We’d be sharing love
    Before the night was through 

Something in your eyes
was so inviting
Something in your smile
was so exciting
Something in my heart
   Told me I must have you 

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when
 We said our first hello
 Little did we know
Love was just a glance away
A warm embracing dance away 

And ever since that night we’ve been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
 It turned out so right
 For strangers in the night

    hahaha 😆 Weird Al Yankovic might offer you a job as his lyricist.

  3. Do know of “Weird Al”? He took popular songs and changed the lyrics to very entertaining alternatives. What you did to “Strangers in the Night” reminds me of that! You may have a career and a cult following in your future!!! 🙂

    This must have been the version sung, not by Nancy and Frank Sinatra, but by Nancy and Bill Sykes…

    Ha, don’t think hearing “Stranglers in the night” would give me a feeling of peace even if it had been sung by Sinatra himself!

    Not so sure that I like the subject, and maybe I prefer ‘ole blue eyes’ but I will givefull marks for effort…so good that I could not think of a reciprocal verse

  15. Well now you come to mention it, Col, I’m sure that’s what Frank really meant to sing. 😯 I saw your title and expected something about ‘Strangler Figs’, but this is far more interesting. Are you perhaps thinking of ‘branching out’ into horror fiction? 🙂
