Music Monday! The CheeseBergens!

Fellow blogger and poetess extraordinaire, Marissa Bergen is an accomplished musician, as is everyone in her entire family. Occassionally she and the rest of The CheeseBergens put one of her hilariously brilliant poems to music, kind of like a heavy metal Partridge Family. Here’s their song Mommy and Daddy Worship Satan:

I hoped they wouldn’t notice but
My friends suspicion’s roused
They ask me why I never let them
Come play at my house
It looks as if I may have to
Invite them to my home
And pray dad doesn’t greet then when
He’s wearing his black robe

The coast is clear they wonder what
The worry on my face meant
When suddenly a chanting starts
To rise up from the basement
Why can’t I be a normal kid
It’s so much less complex
To say I think it’s just my mom
And father having sex

My mother says “I guess I just
Don’t get your generation”
And that’s what life is like when mom
And daddy worship Satan.

And before I know it they
Are running to explore
And follow the odd noises that
Are coming from the floor
And soon they find my parents
In their favorite recreation
Conjuring up spirits in
An evil incantation

And daddy says “Oh visitors
Well isn’t that just nice?”
I hope he doesn’t think them virgins
To be sacrificed
But mom ignores my gestures and
She sports an evil grin her
Mouth waters as she says “We’re happy
To have you for dinner!”

I fear they will accept her offer
And agree to stay
Do they not know she means to have them
As the main entree?
I’m just about to tell them run
But briefly I think twice
A break from eye of newt and toe
Of frog would sure be nice

My mother says “I guess I just
Don’t get your generation”
And that’s what life is like when mom
And daddy worship Satan.

You can find The CheeseBergens on Bandcamp. Have a great Monday! ~Phil

  1. How awesome is this Phil!
    I’ll put it everywhere
    On Twitter and Facebook
    All worthy to share
    And wouldn’t you know
    You now possess
    The title of he who wrote
    Our first bit of press!
