A haunting but hopefully not-too-horrible take on Bob Seger’s ‘We’ve Got Tonite’ (equally famous as ‘We’ve Got Tonight’ by Kenny Rogers and Sheena Easton). Nothing too graphic, just a bit spooky is all. Maybe a smidgen of cannibalism and face-peeling, but nothing entirely untoward.

LYRICS – ‘Why Don’t You Scream?’, the Spooky version of We’ve Got Tonight

Sung to the tune of ‘We’ve Got Tonite’ by Bob Seger.

I know it’s late
I know you’re weary
I know your plans
don’t include me

Still, here we are
down in the basement
Or maybe a shelter
cellar, or dream

What is your hurry?
No one can hear, girl
Call on your cheer squad!
Bring out your team!

We’ve got tonight
There’s no tomorrow
We’ve got tonight, baby
Why don’t you scream?

I’ve watched you sleep
I’ve watched you changing
Haunted your children
Into their teens

I’ve longed for lungs
Like everyone else does
Or maybe some liver
With fava beans

So there it is girl
You’ve done it all now
Running through quicksand
Falling for me

We’ve got tonight
There’s no tomorrow.
We’ve got tonight, baby
Why don’t you scream?

I know it’s late
I know you’re weary
I know your plans
They don’t include me
Still here we are
We both need our mother
I mean ‘another’

We’ve got tonight
There’s no tomorrow
Cut off your mask, baby
Peel at the seams

Turn out the lights
Run, by all means
I’ve got this knife, baby
Why don’t you scream?

I’ve got this knife, baby
Why don’t you scream?
