Alternate Lyrics, Part Deux

As you might remember, sometimes I get the urge to sing songs out loud even if I've forgotten some (or all) of the lyrics.

Today, it was the Bauhaus classic, "Bela Lugosi's Dead".

Here now is what I was singing this afternoon under the influence of hydrocordo... err, hydroco... ah, pain meds...:

Bela Lugosi's dead
He got shot in the head
Eating Fruity Pebbles with Fred
Bela Lugosi's dead
[Break it down, dawg!...]

Those two sittin' around eating fruity pebbles, I bet that would be quite a conversation.

For some reason, though, I keep picturing Martin Landau as Lugosi a la Ed Wood...

That is going to be stuck in my head all day. :)

What about that old Eric Clapton song, "Forever Man"? I *still* don't know the lyrics -- I've always thought it sounded like he was singing "I'll be your bald-headed man, and you'll be my bald-headed woman."

Speaking of Clapton, IIRC his song 'Pretending' was misheard as 'Nintendo' so often, Eric got his teenaged son to write alternate lyrics for it and recorded the parody hisself (!!!) (however, this might also have been a complete mental hallucination on my part, of course, of course...)
