Electric Chair

about

You might only know the original song if you own a copy of They Might Be Giants' "Here Comes Science."

This is a really dumb parody idea from a long time ago.

lyrics

Electric chair in rooms so bare
They’re justified by who is there
Electric chair cause we don’t care…

Electric chair for those who kill
But don’t use gas or cyanide pills
Electric chair, you know the drill…

Let’s take a ride in the electric chair
It will soon be fine in the electric chair
You don’t have to cry in the electric chair
Just plug yourself right in and see
You battery get in the seat

Electric chair runs through your veins
Revolting and quite inhumane
Electric chair, conducting pain

Electric chair, connect the dots,
Just flip the switch and call the shots
Electric chair, we love it watts

Let’s take a ride in the electric chair
It will soon be fine in the electric chair
You don’t have to cry in the electric chair
Don’t try resistance, it’s no use
It’s ample to be calm and loose

No cattle prod or firing squad…

Let’s take a ride in the electric chair
It will soon be fine in the electric chair
You don’t have to cry in the electric chair
Unless the power’s out, it works
Just crank it up to all the hertz

Let’s take a ride in the electric chair
You will soon be fried in the electric chair
If you're the wrong guy too bad, electric chair
Just plug yourself right in and see
The state can kill you currently
