Songs about creepy/pervy/weird people?

Great King Rat-Queen

Great King Rat died today
Born on the twenty first of May
Died syphilis forty four on his birthday
Every second word he swore
Yes he was the son of a whore
Always wanted by the law

Lots of Procul Harum songs were about madness: “In Held 'Twas In I,” “She Wandered Through the Garden Fence” and “Shine on Brightly.”

Mack the Knife

“Riders on the Storm” - The Doors

There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad
If you give this man a ride
sweet family will die
Killer on the road…

I think you’re looking for the “Songs BY creepy/weird people” thread :wink:

Eleanor Rigby (the Beatles’ one, not the Doper)

Though you can interpret it as just about depressed people, it’s still a little creepy. It freaked me the hell out when I first encountered it in seventh grade.

Art Lover -The Kinks
Pretty little legs, I want to draw them,
Like a degas ballerina.
Pure white skin, like porcelain,
Shes a work of art and I should know
Im an art lover.
Come to daddy,
And Ill give you some spangles

You misplaced two of the words: it’s “Straw Hat And Old Dirty Hank”, which is a play on the chorus of “The Farmer’s Song” by Murray McLauchlan, which starts out, “Straw hat and old dirty hanky, moppin’ a face like a shoe (gesundheit).”

A lot of the songs on Coheed and Cambria’s In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3 are creepy and weird, and maybe pervy as well: (spoilers)

In Al the Killer, apparently there’s a serial killer who targets white girls apparently thinking he will obtain part of their soul in the act.

In The Crowing(IIRC), there is someone who complains that the target of his affection apparently doesnt return it by whining “but you, you were my favorite,” which I always imagine as some unrequited lover trashing an apartment or something in anger that his loved one SHOULD love him back just because he does.

And in In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3, the singer asks if “the children really understand the things you did to them,” although in this case he probably isn’t referring to the obvious.

They haven’t filled us in on the backstory of this album, though, and the lyrics are sort of opaque so who knows, but they are definitely sung creepily.

So What -Metallica

I’ve had crabs, I’ve had lice
I’ve had the clap and that ain’t nice
So what, so what
I’ve fucked this, I’ve fucked that
I’ve even fucked a school girl’s twat
So what, so what
So what, so what, you boring little fuck

Country Death Song-Violent Femmes

I gave her a push, I gave her a shove.
I pushed with all my might, I pushed with all my love.
I threw my child into a bottomless pit.
She was screaming as she fell, but I never heard her hit

The guy in Joni Mitchell’s “Rainy Night House” creeps me out.

It was a rainy night
We took a taxi
To your mother’s home
She went to Florida
And left you with your father’s gun alone…

Harry Chapin’s “Dogtown” involves bestiality between a woman and a dog, and his “Burning Herself” is about self-mutilation.

“Always” by **Jon Bon Jovi **

“Creep” by Radiohead

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo…

Aisha, by Death in Vegas (sung by Iggy Pop in all his used-up glory):
Aisha
We’ve only just met
And I think you ought to know
I’m a murderer
Babies need blood
I have a portrait on my wall
He’s a serial killer
I thought he wouldn’t escape
Aisha
He got out

Intruder by Peter Gabriel

I know
how to move quietly
creep across squeaky wooden floors

slipping the clippers
slipping the clippers through the telephone wire

Lump and Boll Weevil by Presidents of the United States of America.

Also Aqualung even though some people beat me to it.

Stagger Lee
Bubba Shot the Jukebox
Betty’s Being Bad
When God-Fearing Women Get the Blues
When He Cheats
The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia
Ballad of Billie Joe
Smackwater Jack
Witchy Woman

Alice Cooper - I Love The Dead

“…while friends and lovers mourn your silly grave
I have other uses for you, darling…”

The Police - Don’t Stand so Close to Me

Temptation, frustration
So bad it makes him cry
Wet bus stop, she’s waiting
His car is warm and dry

This freaked me out too when I was a kid - I always thought she had an *actual * face in a jar by the door. Eww.
