The Lyrics

The last, but certainly not the least, of the parodies comprising Hits 1 & Hits 2 from Prince. Thanks to K1chyd for the song idea!
We had meant to go camping tomorrow
Never meant to walk in that acid rain
It was strange how we both started convulsing
And only had a thought re-main-ing to eat people's brains

People's brains, people's brains
People's brains, people's brains
People's brains, people's brains

We all be-came rav-e-nous zom-bies eat-ing people's brains!

This was a whole new world to discover
I really didn't like the thought of being undead
I couldn't stand to see you eat your mother
She would be glad to know we got a-head

People's brains, people's brains
People's brains, people's brains
People's brains, people's brains

I only want to be a zombie eating people's brains

Honey, I see, I see your tastes are changing
A dead baby fillet could be something new
How about a stew?
You want to eat him or eat her,
But you can't seem to make up your mind?
I think you should combine 'em
Let me cook you up some scrambled brains

People's brains, people's brains
People's brains, people's brains
(If you're getting the munchies my dear, let me lend you a hand!)
People's brains, people's brains

I only want to eat them, I only want to eat them!
Eat the people's brains!!!

(DEMONIC GUITAR SOLO)

(ZOMBIE CHORUS MOANS INTO THE FADEOUT...)
UUUUNNNnnnhhhhhhhh....
UUUUNNNnnnhhhhhhhh....
UUUUNNNnnnhhhhhhhh....

Zombies don't eat the flesh of the living.

555. I'm a zombie, and I only eat flesh of the living when it's good... when it's bad...

Clever parody of The Artist Formally Known As Wince.

(SOTM) It's about time Prince comes up with an answer to Thriller! I mean, it's been twenty-two years already, and this parody is well worth the wait. Sure, the pacing wasn't exactly perfect, but everything else made up for that. I love your Purple Rain substitute, the guitar solo, and the zombie moans at the end. You're just about to give Johnny "Fry a Yellow Liver" D a run for his money! 555

SOTM - Have you seen last years remake of "Dawn of the Dead"? Best zombie movie I've seen, though I have to add "so far" because "Land of the Dead" hasn't made it here yet. *Jumps up and down in chair in Tom Cruise type excitement* :-)

(SOTM) Mmmmm, sauteed cerebellum. Excellent writing here.

(SOTM) Eew. Zombies. Hate them. Always interrupting when I'm trying to comment. Nice work, Agrimorfee.

(SOTM) If Prince had done "Thriller", it might have gone something like this. Lovely flow to TOS.
Johnny D - May 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above ... still a great send-up of The Artist Formally Known As Wince!

(SOTM) well, someone's brain is scrambled, Agri - mine I think - LOL - great subs!

SOTM...this makes me think of every bad zombie movie I've ever seen...but then, it also makes me think of "Shaun of the Dead," which is hilarious...so...I"ll forgive you. Also, it's just plain fabulous...good job!

(SOTM) Scarily goofy. Also one that was released when I was on my vacation. 555.

(SOTM) I know someone who claims to be a zombie...he'd love this. And it makes just as much sense as the OS...which I could never understand anyway.

(Halloween) Very lucky I stumbled upon the OS a while ago, this is just GREAT! Better than Seamonkey's version (Poo Poo Stains)... Infact... WAY better than Seamonkey's... Anyway, 5-5-5

(Halloween) The Artist Formally Known As Wince doesn't need to eat anybody's brain -- he's a smart music business magnate!

(Halloween) See above! You had brass writing the "dead baby fillet" line. Brass is good.

I'll give this one a run through - can see it going down well if I can play the thing.
Matthias - February 29, 2016 - Report this comment
It's been awhile since I read this one but it really holds up well especially with the popularity of "The Walking Dead" and anything zombie related coming out recently.
Max Power - March 01, 2016 - Report this comment
It is alright though the zombie thing have been played out due to the media popularity lately but still, not a bad work. So as said before, "Heh."
Jeff Reuben - March 08, 2016 - Report this comment
This was great! Hard song to match the lyrics/pacing, great topic, and timely with the Walking Dead.
Abbott Skelding - March 08, 2016 - Report this comment
I could definitely see this as a super power ballad with zombies in the background. Very nicely done and I love the title sub!
bobpiecheese - March 08, 2016 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Wait, I've read this one before? Maybe that knowledge got eaten by a zombie, who knows. Great parody here, even if the echo-y nature of the OS made it a bit tricky to pace. You've got 5's on you.
Blaydeman - March 08, 2016 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Purple rain would to people into zombies. Lol! Liked the switch. Usually I'd like a change-up in the choruses, but you even said, We only have one thought remaining" so It made me laught to have the chorus repeat just that one thought. Good job on this one.
