[MUMMY:] I'm a mummy. I scare people. Watch what happens when I walk up to
somebody.
I'm a mummy.
[FIRST PERSON:]
[MUMMY:] I was born one thousand nine hundred and fity-nine years ago. My
daddy was a mummy, too. Watch what happens when I walk up to somebody.
I'm a mummy.
[SECOND PERSON:]
[MUMMY:] I don't try to scare people. I really came back to life to buy a
copy of "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb", but people run from me.
Watch what happens when I walk up to somebody.
I'm
a mummy.
[THIRD PERSON:]
[MUMMY: ]I wish there was somebody somewhere who wasn't afraid of me. Oh,
well. Watch what happens when I walk up to somebody.
I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] That's cool.
[MUMMY: ]I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] You mean you're a mother.
[MUMMY:] No, I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] I'm a beatnik.
[MUMMY: ]People are afraid of me.
[BEATNIK:] Yeah, I'll bet.
[MUMMY:] I was born one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine years ago.
[BEATNIK:] Oh, yeah, like that's a long gig.
[MUMMY:] Where can I buy a copy of "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb"?
[BEATNIK:] Oooh, man, I don't dig that trash. You know like Brubeck,
Sherwin, modern jazz quartet?
[MUMMY:] I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] Man, you got a warped groove.
[MUMMY:] Aren't you afraid of me? Aren't you gonna scream?
[BEATNIK:] Oh, yeah, like "help."
