This freaking song is terrible. I've heard it a hundred times, but i still cannot get over how freaking stupid it is. None of it makes any sense. I just heard it on tv and became enraged. thoughts? if u love this song, please explain why. And his hair was perfect? WTF does that mean?

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.

Chorus:
Aaahoo, werewolves of London
Aaahoo(2x)

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.

Chorus 2x

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.

Chorus 2x

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
Draw blood

Who the hell knows how accurate any of this stuff actually is but
http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=1287
Seems like the song just came together organically.
Also, I love this song, I have no idea why really but I'm pretty sure that its got alot to do with the one lyric that is left out of your post....

After the "and his hair was perfect line" there is a pause and Warren says "YUP" or maybe just makes some weird noise. Dumb reason to like a song? For sure, but for some reason it does it for me.

I will say however that Kid Rock kinda ruined it for me with that song he sampled this for.

I don't love this song, but I do like it. His vocals are a little over the top for me, but I guess that is the point. I don't think the lyrics are bad at all, just surreal. Alot of Bob Dylan and Beatles best work have lyrics that are alot more obscure than this - see I am the Walrus

www.songfacts.com I really don't think there is a meaning to this song. Do songs need to have meanings? I like the song, why would the lyrics need to have some deep poetic meaning to make it a good song?

only diff is that the beatles and dylan backed it up by having other songs that were amazing instead of just one ridiculous song that makes no sense whatsoever. i'm ranting, sorry, i don't hate the song that much, but i actually do b/c the lyrics are so freaking stupid

no, ur right, i'm just commenting b/c this song annoys the $hit out of me. it has no meaning and it doesn't have to, maybe i wish i wrote a song about nonsense and lived off of it for the rest of my life. hell, i could do it right now

I love this song. I don't find it necessary to find a deep or even superficial meaning in it to enjoy it. The tune is catchy and infectious, and the lyrics paint a comical picture of a beast with classy/upscale mannerisms.
