The Lyrics

Last year I declared the zombie parody song genre dead and buried forever, but it just won't stay dead in my head so here it is again, resurrected, alive (sic!) and kicking in two new parodies today.
Their shrilling mute lips divide as they
High pitch some sort of cry
And no way I'm gonna go outside today
They're gonna make me stay inside
My rifle I keep close at hand, if
They're breaking through it'll be worth more than gold
And I can see none living
'Cos there are none living
But hunger's why they come here and moan

Hear them cry!
I don't like zombies
Hear them cry!
I don't like zombies
Hear them cry!
I don't like zombies
I wanna shoot
The whole lot down

This years Halloween's the worst I've seen
As old friends are living dead
And mother's in the flock
Father punched the knock
When they caught up with their own little girl
Sweet sixteen
No more peachy keen
On the door she beats
To come in and eat
And I can see none living
'Cos there are none living
These zombies' here for me

High and dry!
I don't like zombies
High and dry!
I don't like zombies
High and dry!
I don't like zombies
I wanna shoot
The whole lot down, down, down
Shoot the buggers down

All the resting's stopped in the graveyard now
They seek to eat on my flesh a while
I'll go postal surely
Either late or early
As the offer today is to undie
'Cos when the dead's unshackled
And the door is tackled
I'm just seconds from my un-demise
And I can hear them coming
How their feet are drumming
This seasons is the season to die, die, oh-oh-oh

Say bye-bye!
I don't like zombies
Say bye-bye!
I don't like zombies
Say bye-bye!
I don't like, I don't like, I don't like zombies
Say bye-bye!
I don't like, I don't like, I don't like zombies
Say bye-bye!
I don't like zombies
They're in pursuit, oh-oh-oh

My...
Pants...
Are...
Brown!

This is that song WLUP FM plays at 1am on mondays, isn't it? I remember the chorus--but nothing else, right now, so, I can't vote. (Sorry!)

Thank you Alvin, PMS, Stuart, Merry, McKludge and Jonathan.

Stuart: I'm not sure if it's really that funny, but IMOHO the pacing's among the best I've managed.

Jonathan: That's why I'm linking to the original (for a limited time).
