3-16-10 The Misfits – Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight

Posted by Sean on March 16, 2010

I read about Mister Rogers being a SEAL in a piece of spam e-mail several years ago – an e-mail, by the way, that Snopes.com has debunked. But I don’t care if it’s accurate or not. The thought of Mister Rogers having confirmed kills is just too delicious to abandon.

Anyway, if you’re going to post a song about Daddy, well I’ll just have to post something about Mommy. Here’s the Misfits’ Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight, which some of you may remember will become the national anthem when I’m elected President of the United States on the Bull Platypus ticket. Not Work Safe, just because it’s the Misfits.

Courtesy of blessedwithdeath, and if that’s not the name of a Misfits  song then it should be.  Recorded live in 1981, which means that’s Glenn Danzig (author of that other paean to motherhood, Mother) up on stage.

Singled out the kids who are mean to me
Get straight A’s but they still make fun
I don’t give a… I’ll laugh last

Stayed in every night
Do my homework so I’ll be smart
Girls all say I’m a little fucked

Mommy I’m a good boy
Mommy I’m a fuckin’ savior
Mommy I’m alive

Mommy, can I go out and kill tonight

Rip the veins from human necks
Until they’re wet with life
Razor-blades love teenage flesh
An epidermathy
I’ll bring back a souvenir
For it’s my mommy’s dream

Can I go out and kill tonight, kill tonight

Killed a girl on lovers’ lane
I kept her toes and teeth
Every night I stalk around until I find my keep
I’ll bring back a souvenir
For it’s my mommy’s dream

Can I go out and kill tonight, kill tonight

Killed a girl on lovers lane
I kept her toes and teeth
Every night I stalk around until I find my keep, mommy
I’ll bring back a souvenir
For it’s my mommy’s dream

Can I go out and kill tonight, kill tonight
Kill tonight, kill tonight, kill tonight, kill tonight
Kill tonight, kill tonight

Can I go out and kill tonight, kill tonight
Kill tonight, kill tonight, kill tonight, kill tonight
Kill tonight, kill tonight
