The Lyrics

On a head start from a zombie
I was running for my life
There were ants and worms and maggoty things
There was flesh hanging off in strings
The first thing I’d met was some flies all a-buzz
On this guy, lying dead on the ground
Then he lurched upright with a groan and a grunt
And he started to shuffle around

I’ve ran through the desert from a corpse with no brain
He smelt just like an old sewer main
In the desert, you’ll get dismembered and slain
‘Cause there ain’t no zombie who don’t like to eat brains
La, la, la-la-la …

After two days in the desert sun
His skin began to decay
After three days in that desert fun
He was looking for the brain buffet
And he wanted a load of my brain a’ la mode
Made me retch to smell his bouquet

You see I’ve ran through the desert from a corpse with no brain
I think he might be starting to gain
Oh, my legs hurt, I’m really feeling the pain
‘Cause there ain’t no way that this pace I’ll maintain
La, la, la-la-la …

After nine days, I let that corpse catch me
‘Cause I was too exhausted to flee
He ate my brain and before I knew
I became a zombie too
Demotion to a zombie is like life underground
And a world full of food above
In the cities lie the graveyards we haunt
And the human brains that we love

You see, I’ve been served for dessert to a corpse with no brain
It felt good to be put out of pain
When you’re a zombie, you can’t remember your name
‘Cause you ain’t really “you” now that you’ve got no brain
La, la, la-la-la …

I liked it, but John McCain won't. (Ba-dump-bump-ching!)
