This song tackles the weighty issue of the use of fear as a tool to manipulate the weak and naïve..Anyone who attempts to do this via poxy fridge magnets really needs a few lessons from the nuns that taught us back in the sixties .Terror was their middle names!!!!

I recorded the horror vibes intro bit on a small cassette recorder and added the out of tune, childish "singing" to give it a Dario Argenta "Suspiria" feel. Rather than frighten folks to death by basing the entire song on this motif,I lay down a slow disco beat and got Dave to play some light guitar and bass over which I placed organ,rhodes and sound effects including Bill Millers amazing whiplashes to remind the listener of the subject matter..


Alphonsus will get you,
that's what she said.
The insane penguin held all the cards.
Obey ,or the cane will rain down ,little girl
Obey ,or feel the wrath of Alphonsus..

Alphonsus will get you...
Obey or feel the wrath of Alphonsus..

The world is still full of crazy fuckers.
My guardian angel joined the militia.
I open my paper ,
and there in blackink,
Alphonsus will get you,
Obey little girl...

Alphonsus will get you...
Obey or feel the wrath of Alphonsus..
