"Scissor Man (xtc Cover)" as written by and Andy Partridge....
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Putting end to evil doers games
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Maybe you are in his book of names
Maybe you are in his book of names
So be kind and helpful to your mother
Just think twice before you try and steal
When he cuts with sticky silver snippers
You may find the wounds will never heal
All self made bad boys
If you refuse to believe he exist
You won't be frightened when you find out
You're on his list
You're on his list
You're on his list
So be good and never poison people
Just think twice before the deed is done
When you wake up guilty in the morning
You may find important pieces gone

    General Commentcool cover. I love that da na da na naw part (you'd have to hear it to know what i mean). THis song is just using "Scissor Man" as a metaphor for carma. What you do will come back to you ten fold. You screw someone over, justice or whatever you want it to be will get ya -- so be good!

    General CommentI recon this would be a good song to play to 11-13 year olds, a little bit twisted and kinda funny with a kids song sound to it (like The air is getting slipery) a good solid moral message. Not to mention it beats the hell outa any crappy pop songs that they'd listen to otherwise

    General CommentActually this is not the composer of the songs idea of Karma, it's actually based on a tale by Heinrich Hoffmann about this man who comes around and cuts off parts of naughty children's body (thumbs specifically) check him out kirjasto.sci.fi/… . Also please note that this specific story was referenced in the take your daughter to work episode of the American version of the Office
