The Og Mad Magazine parodies (373* d) RE: Mad Magazine parodies 09 Jun 21


To Suzanne from Australia...


IN PRAISE OF STEPHEN KING (C)
My take on a 19 January 2016 "Mudcat Cafe" post, by Suzanne from Australia, of an item that had appeared earlier in a MAD Magazine from the 1960s; tune = "There's No Business Like Show Business"

C                      Am                      C                   Am
I sing glories to King stories they bring disquieting,
G                                                       C
Most of them are filled with untold terror,
G                                        C
Don't be in error, I do not lie.
G                                             Am                         D
If you like your stories full of evil, with much upheaval,
             G
I'll clari-fy.
             C                      Am                C                            F
There's no villains like King villains, maybe living next door.
Am                      G                         C       A
If you think that demons are just everywhere,
         D             G          C       A
With vampires lurking…in midair,
         Dm                         G                   C                A
Then maybe you're just waiting for a King-sized scare.
         Dm             G               C
Just stop at your local bookstore.
