The Ludovico Effect

This song was created for Game of Bands round 92 : "Soundtrack"


"Come and get one in the yarbles...if you have any yarbles.."

Verse 1:

Out for a spell of ultraviolence
A horrorshow life for this violent mind
Knock, knock, knock, here's your surprise
Serenade as the raindrops fall from your eyes


My appy polly loggies now, for what you're about to viddy
but brother I am not a monster, just a product of society
Oh sister, can't you see my strings?
Another clockwork orange coming off of the assembly
"And there I was, your humble narrator, in the Korova Milk Bar for a little milk-plus.."

Verse 2:

Milk from the breast keeps our eyes open,
Smile on my face when the bell starts tolling nine
but when dim wits spit on Ludwig Van,
can't help it when my temper starts to rise


"Singing in the Rain" Interlude
"I'm not going to school today, Mum! I've got a bit of a pain in the ole gulliver.."

Verse 3:

Saying I've done wrong, now don't be silly
I've simply gone off script, you see
And when I'm "fixed up", eyes open wide
Viddy my droogs and victims prove me right!
