The Lyrics

This is my Halloween song for 2008, it's not about any of the usual themes for that (i.e monsters, ghosts, bloodsucking vampires and/or politicians) but rather the most scary thing of all; getting old, feeble, vegetabilized and/or gomertosed. The original song dates back beyond King Kobra (for one Wendy O Williams' version came before theirs) and I don't really know how old it is, but somehow that feels appropriate right now.
They were around when a beer's a dime
They've seen the wars an' steam trains go
They once lived by candlelight
But now they can't stand up-right
Even the fast ones are very slow

They caused the dodos death onetime
Now drooling themselves and some of them steam
They think tea-time is very late
Call the cops if they're out by eight
Then comb their lice and let them dream

Oool' - gomers never die
They'll keep on clinging on to life
Gomers never die
But they're in quandaries 'bout time

They know not where they are or see
They think that George V's still king
Lately they're all but late
They survive turtles they predate
They hibernate until next spring

Oool' - gomers never die
They'll keep on clinging on to life
Gomers never die
But they don't recognize their wifes

Takeout mourning, N.D.E*
None pass away, none fall behind
They're all in a garden state
They all act as if sedate'
But none loose their breath though it's off their mind

Oool' - gomers never die
They'll keep on clinging on to life
Gomers never die
Even when post-post-post prime

Gomers never die!
Gomers never die!
Gomers never die!
Gomers never die!
