| This is a parody using "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts' Club Band" as the framework.
I started this one as an attempt to lighten up the mood during a road trip from Riverside back to San Francisco. It's one of the few parodies that didn't come out of some conversation, jest, caffeine jag or other social merriment.
Click here for the lyrics to the original song.
No one sees them in the light of day --
Those pretentious Goths around the way.
They wear clothing that is out of style
And they’re never seen to crack a smile.
It may not make much sense to you
But they won’t ever seem to care:
Pasty Gothic Chicks in Silk and Lace!
Those Pasty Gothic Chicks in Silk and Lace --
They’ll give you such a morbid show.
Pretentious Gothic Chicks in Silk and Lace
Turn heads wherever they may go.
Pasty Gothic Chicks in, Pasty Gothic Chicks in,
Pasty Gothic Chicks in Silk and Lace
They wear a lot of makeup
It’s mostly black and white
Sometimes they’re lovely, I agree,
But mostly they’re pretentious gits
I don’t really have the nerve to ask
Why they wear their makeup like a mask --
Those princesses with their velvet cloaks,
And their sickly sweet and clove-filled smokes.
Don’t tell me that they’re comfortable
With all that silver in their ears!
Pretentious Gothic Chicks in Silk and Lace!
