Zombie Lyrics

Artist: Nellie McKay
Album: Obligatory Villagers

Should you plan to travel way down South (woah)
Woman to woman, I gotta tell you 'bout (a curse)
A curse that rose out of the deep, green swamp (uh huh)
It hollers "murder", and it makes you jump

And then it says
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah

When I was younger, just a little girl (woah)
Lennon glasses and a ponytail (uh huh)
My mama told me, "Honey, pack your trunk" (woah)
"We're goin' to Mississippi, do the Bayou Bump"

Where they say
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

One day, I set out for a walk
The path soon grew quite dark
I saw my shadow runnin' faster
Hurry, slow-mo, comin' after me
After me

And it said
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah

And zombie don't have to dance (sha, la, la)
And zombie don't dance at your command (sha, la, la)
But zombie don't have to wait (sha, la, la)
So come on (come on)
Do the Voodoo Shake

Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie
Woah, yeah

One day, I set out for a walk
The path soon grew quite dark
I saw my shadow runnin' faster
Hurry, slow-mo, comin' after me
After me

And it said

Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, woah, yeah

The sun is shinin' and you're feelin' fine (woah)
As you pass the Mason-Dixie line (uh-huh)
The forest echoes, and the tree leaves snap (woah)
Hey, what's that sound, spin around
Who dat

Then they say
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Do the Zombie, Zombie, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie
Woah, woah, yeah
Do the Zombie
Do the Zombie, Zombie, Zombie, the Zombie
Do the Zombie, Zombie, Zombie
