Werewolves of London
A quick switch to the lighter side…Besides the famous movie, there is a song called Werewolves of London. Sung by Warren Zevon, the Werewolves of London song was a part of the 1978 album Excitable Boy and hit number 21 on the American Top 40 charts. Since it was originally released, the song has popped back in and out of popular culture with some regularity..probably because it’s so catchy. In fact,many of you may be familiar with the tune since the beat became very popular in a recent hit by Kid Rock who actually samples Werewolves of London in his own song “All Summer Long”!

Lyrics to Werewolves of London:
I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand
walkin through the streets of Soho in the rain.
He was lookin for the place called Lee Ho Fooks, gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein
Aaahoo, werewolves of London
Ya hear him howlin around your kitchen door, ya better not let him in.
Little old lady got mutilated late last night, werewolves of London again.
He’s the hairy, hairy gent, who ran amok in Kent.
Lately he’s been overheard in Mayfair.
You better stay away from him, he’ll rip your lungs out Jim.
Huh, I’d like to meet his tailor.
Well, I saw Lon Chaney walkin with the queen, doing the werewolves of London.
I saw Lon Chaney Jr. walkin with the queen, doin the werewolves of London
I saw a werewolf drinkin a pina colada at Trader Vic’s
And his hair was perfect.
ahhhooooo, werewolves of London
