THE COCKROACH THAT ATE CINCINNATI (Doug Drill) Rose & The Arrangement - 1974 Also recorded by: Sing No Evil. Uh-uh, don't touch that dial! (Aah-aah-aah, aah-aah-aah) (Aah-aah-aah, aah-aah-aah) I must offer to you a confession, I like movies that give me a fright (Aaaaggghhhhh!) If the subject is horror, I got to see more or I won't be contented all night You may call it my ghoulish obsession It's a subject on which I get chatty But the worst one it seems, haunting all of my dreams Was the cockroach that ate Cincinnati I've seen ghouls and hobgoblins and witches And some moth-eaten werewolves with fangs There were creatures that chattered and others that clattered And Japanese monsters with fangs (Ah-so) Frankenstein gives me the shakes And Count Dracula's driving me batty But they're not on a par with the worst one by far The cockroach that ate Cincinnati (Ha-ha-ha-ha) (Ho-ho-ho-ho) (Ha-ha-ha-ha) (Hee-hee-hee) (Ha-ha-ha-ha) Oh, he must have needed a seltzer It's amazing how much he got down For lunch, he'd just chew up a suburb or two And for dinner, he ate the whole town (BURP!) Willard just sent me out laughing I thought Ben looked a little bit ratty (sorry about that) But they're not half as bad as the worst scare I've had The Cockroach that ate Cincinnati! Oh, my heart nearly stopped, he will never be topped The cockroach that ate Cincinnati, OLE! Ole? That's dumb (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2010)
