Lyrics for Horror Business by Misfits:

Verse 1
Too much horror business
Driving late at night
Psycho '78
My bathroom is new
You, you don't go in the bathroom with me
Psycho '78
12 o'clock, don't be late
All this horror business
My mirrors are black
You don't go in the bathroom with me

Chorus
With you
I'll put a knife right in you
I'm warning you
I'll put a knife right in you
I'm warning you
I'll put a knife right in you

Verse 2
Too much horror business
Driving late at night
Psycho '78
My bathroom is new for you
You don't go in the bathroom with me
Psycho '78
I'm talking 'bout
12 o'clock, don't be late
'Cause there's all this horror business
My mirrors are black for you
You don't go in the bathroom with me

Chorus
With you
I'll put a knife right in you
I'm warning you
I'll put a knife right in you
I'm warning you
I'll put a knife right in you

Outro
I'm warning you
I'll put a knife right in you
I'm warning you
You!
Nobody can do what I can do

Song Facts

This song is based on two different but similar plots; Nancy Spungen’s death and the 1960 movie Psycho. Concerning the prior, Nancy was murdered on October 12, 1978, allegedly by her boyfriend and Sex Pistols bassist Syd Vicious. The Misfits' bassist; Jerry Only, Vicious' close friend, was present the night before Vicious' death.

Psycho is a cult classic Psychological Thriller, usually considered one of the greatest films ever made. The violent imagery references the famous shower scene.

The song was released in June 1979, however it was recorded in just over a week in January and February of that same year, while Vicious was still in prison.
