Innsmouth girl
She's been living in her Innsmouth world
I bet she's never had unchanged guy        
I bet the Marshes never told her why

I'm gonna try for an Innsmouth girl
She's been living in her black reef world
As long as anyone with fine gills can
And now she's looking for a Arkham man
That's what I am

And then she knows what
He wants from His Sign
And then He'll wake up
And shake up her mind

She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an Innsmouth girl
You know I've seen her in her Innsmouth world
She's getting tired of her sea port's noise
And all her trinkets from her Innsmouth boys
She's got a choice

Innsmouth girl
You know I can watch her gills unfurl.
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll swim

And when she's changing
She's looking so fine
And when she's swimming
She'll say that it's time

She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because I'm in love
With an Innsmouth girl
She's been living in her black reef world
As long as anyone with fine gills can
And now she's looking for an Arkham man
That's what I am

Innsmouth girl
She's my Innsmouth girl
You know I'm in love
With an Innsmouth girl
I was in a shop that was playing 'Uptown Girl' when my sniggering brain substituted "Uptown" for "Innsmouth" and "downtown" for Arkham. It should have ended there, but the more stupid an idea is, the harder I find it to resist...which explains a lot.

'Uptown Girl' belongs to Billy Joel, you can find the video here: [link]
Although Westlife covered it too: [link]
"Shadow Over Innsmouth" belongs to HP Lovecraft: [link]

This was nice! I liked the how you managed to almost completely copy the beat and feel of the original song and still it didn't feel 'awkward
'. Really good!

Thanks! It was fun to do, but I'll never be able to hear the original again :D

this work made me smile... as awkward as that sounds.

Ah good, good! Glad it made you smile. I don't think I'll be able to hear the original being played in a shop again without thinking of Innsmouth. As long as I don't start singing along, everything will be just fine. :D

:D but when you do, it would be so epic... what if all of you started dancing like in "Thriller"... that would really be something...
