Discotheque of Discombobulation

This song was created for Game of Bands round 9 : "Odd Times and No Rhymes"

Lyrics:

At the discotheque of discombobulation
Everyone is moving much too fast
Their motions are so jerky and disordered
There?s not a single thing that beats in time
The strobe light is inducing sudden seizures
The dancers are all wearing stripes and plaid
Please watch out what you?re doing with that elbow
The girl inside the cage, is she quite sane?

Chorus
At the discotheque of discombobulation
To move like Ginger Rogers is a crime
At the discotheque of discombobulation
Couples aren?t allowed to speak in couplets

Everyone is out of syncopation
The bride is dressed in black, the priest in white
The princess gets Mongolian carpet treatment
The conjurer pulls possums from his hat
The barrelful of monkeys got disheartened
They rolled off from the bridge and met their fate
The skeletons are sucking down the daisies
The fishes are all chomping at the bar

Chorus
At the discotheque of discombobulation
To move like Ginger Rogers is a sin
At the discotheque of discombobulation
Couples aren?t allowed to speak in rhyme

Everything?s defying explanation
The early bird is choking on the worm
Congress has approved the war on Christmas
I see the devil sitting on the tree
The lambs are forming packs to hunt the children
At the housing project at the rainbow?s end
The ice storm makes its way across the desert
The libraries are full of books to burn

Chorus
At the discotheque of discombobulation
To move like Ginger Rogers is a crime
At the discotheque of discombobulation
They?re playing songs with words that always clash

At the discotheque of discombobulation
I?m suffocating in the smoky air
My thoughts become detached and disconnected
I think there must be something in my drink
The music is so loud and so distorted
I?m sweating like a hippo that?s in heat
I can?t recall the name of my companion
She wears magenta shoes upon her hands
[Exit]
