MUSIC MADE HIM DO IT

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


        I.  AC/DC sent Ramirez off his rocker.
            now there's blood on the blade of
            the insane Night Stalker.
            music made him do it.

 CHORUS A:  music made him do it,
            vibrations in the air,
            tremors rising like a cold nightmare.
            it should be illegal.
            it's dangerous, you know.
            that heavy metal music has to go.

       II.  John Wilkes Booth was an actor.
            Broadway messed his thinkin'.
            after Sound of Music,
            he shot Abraham Lincoln.
            music made him do it.

 CHORUS B:  music made him do it,
            vibrations in the air.
            tremors rising like a cold nightmare.
            it should be illegal.
            it's dangerous, you know.
            those musicals from Broadway have to go.

      III.  Wagner wrote an opera.
            Hitler was impressed.  and
            soon he's waging a war.
            you know all the rest.
            music made him do it.
            music made him do it.

 CHORUS C:  music made him do it.
 (half      music made him do it.
 chorus)    those heavy classic operas have to go.

       IV.  Cain was born before the
            first song had been written.
            silence made him raise a
            rock to Abel and he hit him.
            silence made him do it.  (oh, no!)

 CHORUS D:  silence made him do it,
            the stillness of the air.
            turn on MTV and nothing's there.
            it should be illegal.
            it's dangerous, you know.
            those peaceful quiet moments have to go.

 CHORUS E:  everybody's looking
            to find some kind of sound
            that won't cause death when mummy's not around.
            we sang of love and dancing,
            but it was no use.
            you can't fight a guilty man's excuse:

   ENDING:  music made him do it.
            music made him do it.
