Lovecraft, Baby!

Master_Nick-HPLoveShack4webAfter having created a bit of Lovecraft/Love Shack art, I had an overwhelming urge to write Lovecraftian lyrics to the tune of the B-52s’ “Love Shack.”
If you don’t get all the references, just read more Lovecraft!

Lovecraft, Baby!

In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming,
or is he a dream of
Looovecraft
Lovecraft, yeah, yeah 

I’m headin’ back from the sunken R’lyeh!
Lookin’ for a corpse to re-animate!

Diggin’ up a corpse from a fresh grave!
I got me a hearse, and I think that it’s cursed, 
And we’re headin’on down to meet Lovecraft.
That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons even death may die! 

That Lovecraft wrote us many a page of dark and cosmic horror!
Lovecraft, baby (a-Lovecraft, baby)
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft!
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft!
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Lovecraft, that’s where it’s at, yeah.)
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Lovecraft, Doom to Sarnath.) 

I say, “Stay away, fools!”
‘Cause Abdul’s spake by Lovecraft!
Well, R’lyeh’s sunk down in the middle of the sea
Just a city of doom, it’ll be your tomb!
Madness at the mountains,
Madness down at R’lyeh!
Madness up at Arkham,
Colour out of Space! 

That Lovecraft wrote us many a page, that dark fantastic author!
Lovecraft, baby (Lovecraft, baby!)
Lovecraft, that’s where it’s at!
Lovecraft! Doom to Sarnath! 

Fungi from Yuggoth, Shoggoth, Yog-sothoth,
Scare men o’ the cloth
‘Cause it’s darker than Goth!
The Nameless City,
Yeah, the Nameless City,
The Nameless City  where everybody’s readin’
Necro-nom-icon and on and on!
Everybody’s rantin’, everybody’s chantin’, baby,
Ph’ng-lui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh
R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!” Graven idol, baby!

Necronomicon!
Necro-nomi-con! 

Great Old Cthulhu is a tentacled thing
and it’s got claws and long wings!
That is not dead which can eternal lie!
With strange aeons even death may die! 

That Lovecraft wrote us many a page of dark and cosmic horror!
Lovecraft, baby (a-Lovecraft, baby)
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft!
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft!
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Lovecraft, that’s where it’s at, yeah.)
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Lovecraft, Doom to Sarnath.)  

I’m that thing on the doorstep.
Edward Pickman Derby…
I’m that thing on the doorstep.
Can’t be at the door…
I’m that thing on the doorstep.
In a stolen body!
I’m that thing on the doorstep.
A hunch-backed dwarf! 
I’m that thing on the doorstep. (Derby is a corpse!)
I’m that thing on the doorstep.
Dagon! (Undersea, baby!)
Dagon! (Undersea!)
Dagon! (Undersea, baby!)
Dagon!
You’re what?
Wilber Whateley! 

Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft!
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Lovecraft, that’s where it’s at, yeah.)
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Lovecraft, Doom to Sarnath)
Lovecraft! H. P. Lovecraft! (Pickman, Erich Zann, Dagon, and From Beyond)
All by Lovecraft.

P.S.
The Jabberwock art updates will return.
In the meantime, For twisted fiction, including some dark allusions to Alice in Wonderland, do peruse a copy of “Gonzombie and Other Dark Tales” (edited by acclaimed author of vampire erotica, Suz deMello!) http://tinyurl.com/gonzombie
