The Lyrics

I didn't have time (or the inspiration) to write and submit something for Hallowe'en, this year, so I'm submitting next year's Hallowe'en offering early.
I tried to wave,
"Hello" to someone I remembered,
But she ran away
I don't understand
Why she is...

Running just as fast as she can,
Screaming out in terror, crying and
Begging "please spare my life", what's with the fright?
She doesn't want to be around me,
And I don't know what I've done
It's really strange...

Could I be a zombie?
I never learned to swim and it seems I drow-owned
My flesh is all crumbly
It might explain how I woke up undergrou-ound

Look at the way,
The maggots writhe as they're chewing
And what is that smell?
I hope it's not true, but look, they're

Running just as fast as they can,
Screaming out in terror, crying and
Beggin' "Please spare our lives" something ain't right
And no one wants to be around me,
And I don't know what I've done,
It's really strange,

I think I'm a zombie,
I must have ceased to be, now I'm back in tow-own.
I'm just skin and bones, now
The beating of my heart doesn't make a sou-ound.

I think I'm a zombie,
Was pinin' for the fjords, now I'm back in tow-own.
I must look a fright, now
They're fleeing for their lives when I stare them dow-own


Running just as fast they can,
Something's ended my eternal nap,
Daisies got pushed away, I look a fright
And now I'm dripping worms around me
And I'm stumbling around
I'd have to say,

I must be a zombie
That explains the dress and this stupid shrou-oud.
I must be a zombie,
I must not need the parts that keep slipping ou-out!

I once was no more, now
It seems I've un-expired for a walk-abou-out
I must be immortal
If I'm already dead, they can't take me ou-out!

I think I'm alone now, (alone now)
I look but I don't see anyone arou-ound.
But I'm not alone, now (alone now)
The beating of their hearts is the only sou-ound.

I'm hungry and cold, now, (and cold now)
Following the beat and it's getting lou-oud
I'm hungry and cold now (and cold now)
The beating of their hearts is a yummy sou-ound.

I'm hungry and cold, now (...so run, now!)...

Even if it's late, you'll still be getting some freaky 5's from me. I was wondering about that smell too.

Great job Melhi. Seems people are dying today that never died before. Hold up your treat bag so I can put these three 5s in it.

The chewing maggots line was hilarious!

Thanks Merry! I was hoping someone, besides me, would think that line was funny and not just gross. :)
