The Lyrics

Original song here and original recording here.
We’re running out
A gentlemen drought
Got no passion for dudes
Got a poker face glued
To my mandible
Boys seem problematical

Men are obscene; each date is a bust
They like what they see
So I groan in disgust
All this shallow praise
Ready now to make a change
To a guy who wants my brains

I don’t need a man
I’m longing for an undead hottie
Hot for, hot for zombies,
Many think I’m prey to danger
Well, I think they’re faulty
I’m hot for, hot for zombies

True, no man, no cry
That’s why I’ve got first dibs when they all die
Saints even proclaim
The fame of resurrected bodies
Hot for, hot for zombies

Not much for words
In fact, he just groans
He’s soft-spoken and smart
Has a quiet, dead heart
Silent men – my favorite

None too concerned
By his fear of sunburn
He’ll run back inside
Boy, I swear I don’t mind
When he screams in fright
We don’t need direct sunlight
For the things we’ll do tonight

Hey, don’t need a tan
I’ll love you if you’re pale and ugly
Hot for, hot for zombies
Baby who could run from you
I heart your aimless stumbling
I’m hot for, hot for zombies

Call him unrefined
He’d argue back if he half a mind
Babe if you’ve got fangs
Let’s tango while you’re chilled and rotting
Hot for, hot for zombies

Ew, blood
He cracks open craniums
Snap, snap
Goes your neck when he’s raiding, yo
Can’t stop - us with your guns
Can’t blast him cause he’s stiff and numb!

I’m at your command
I’ll follow in your deadly army
Hot for, hot for zombies
Braving hordes of U.S. troopers
When the dead are walking
I’m hot for, hot for zombies

Bomb us? We’ll survive
We’ll bring apocalypse to all mankind
Take me, all your brainless
Bankers, clowns and killer Nazis
Hot for, hot for zombies
Dedicated to my boyfriend. We'll talk when you get home.

Love the way you mentioned "poker face" in your parody, Emi! Now I'm about to be "zombified" with your song! Zombies make me think about Michael Jackson's Thriller and this South Park Halloween Episode from 1997...another thing I like to add is that after reading your Japan parody awhile back, I wrote this parody titled "In France" using that same Gaga (Just Dance) song. It's sort of a response to your parody and that's what inspired me to write it. I'm a die hard Gaga fan myself, like you are! Anyways, spook-tacular parody! 5's!

Hot off the Lady GaGa burners, I love her music and I've never heard this song before... This one is almost as good as your "Japan" parody (Which is most likely going to win for SOTM)

Thanks to Christie (I'll be sure to check yours out!) and Matthias for the kind words. :-)

Just reading this makes me think of Resident Evil for some reason. DKTOS, but I'm pretty sure that if you wrote it, it'll be paced perfectly. 555 severed zombie heads.

Not to mention. . .she recorded it. . .this one is great Emi, 5s
Silver Power - July 03, 2009 - Report this comment
I actually thought this was better than Emi's Japan parody.

"Ready now to make a change
To a guy who wants my brains" - One of the best lines I've read from you. 555, well deserved.

Very good song. I loved the recording too. Soon, you'll have the zombie paparazzi chasing you!
Matthias - July 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Somebody has been playing a bit too much "Resident Evil" and "Left 4 Dead", that person might just be me which actually makes me more happy and pleased to read this parody. One on your long, long, long list of bests.

SOTM: This is the greatest parody I've read today!!! Very excellent job!! 555

SOTM - I'm "hot" for this loving dead parody!!!
Barry Harrison - July 22, 2009 - Report this comment
This is drop-dead funny!!!! LOL Real good job! I just wanna say, I'm not an obscene guy, I'm likeable, lol! Good job! 555

(SOTM) LMAO!!! I've never heard TOS until now, and I got a total kick out of this. This is a really tough month for SOTM, because they're all so good. 555 brains to you!

(SOTM) DKTOS, but very well written. Now I wanna watch Shaun of the Dead (I've been meaning to since watching Hot Fuzz a few weeks ago). 555 decaying lumps of flesh for you (which is kinda creepy, but who cares it fits)!

SOTM...LOL! Lady Ga Ga drives me more than a little bit crazy, but you seem to have a knack for parodying her stuff. LOVE this!

I've probably used this tasteless joke before but necrophilia has got to be the ultimate sexual perversion; a hobby for life - and beyond...

SOTM...I'm hot for Gaga. Hilarious song, loved being able to hear the recording.

You already know my opinion on this one, see the show I played it in
Phil Alexander - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
I thought I'd commented on this one already - I thought it was (un-)dead funny, a take on zombies that I can honestly say I wouldn't have tried myself (even after "Brain glops keep fallin' from my head")

I thought it was very smartly done and fit perfectly to the OS! Great job and effort! :)

(SOTY) Seems like every few months or so you poke your little head in here and give us a work that just simply an undeniable classic. Loved the Pokerface ref, the "quiet man" verse, the "don't need light/for what we'll do tonight" couplet.
Mark Scotti - March 03, 2010 - Report this comment
(SOTY) This one was "Dead" on!!!

SOTY...I love this even more now, Emi. Your talent just astounds me. Seriously. I have no words...

Let's just put it out there, Emi. I love your stuff.
"Let’s tango while you’re chilled and rotting" conjured a particularly vivid image.
Also, your digs toward "the perfect man",from a woman's point of view are clever and revealing...

Damn, so many good parodies happened on my year away from the internet! I think this is my new favourite parody! Amazing!
