Gold-diggin' is a fine tradition—
The courtship of the purse.
But when you wed for greed, you find the vows still read
"For better or for worse."
Y'know we've had our share of stresses;
Guess every marriage has its messes.
Right now, I'd greet them with elation;
Divorce is better than mutation...

Y'know, I didn't do nothin' wrong,
But now I'm living in a country song.
I don't care who sings it, it was written by Stephen King.
The stupid zombies killed the truck,
My husband ate the dog, and now it seems I'm stuck.
I just can't believe this started with a damn bee sting.

With no face he came from outer space—
An interstellar flu.
Now Brenda's fit to bust, what does this mean for us,
And what are we supposed to do?
My husband's face is rearrangin;
That's not the only thing that's changin'.
What sort of fellow gets rejected,
Goes out and gets himself infected?

Y'know, I didn't do nothin' wrong,
But now I'm living in a country song...

This unexpected terror from the sky
Means it's survival of the fittest, do or die.
So if you'd contrive to stay alive, come on now, grab your gun.
Havin' marital fidelity doesn't mean that I won't run!
You can say that I'm a cheatin' whore, that I haven't got a heart,
But the vows I took on the holy book read "until death do us part"!

"And baby...you're dead."

It may be it isn't right of me
To tell my husband "no."
It's true the vows did say "love, honor, and obey,"
But now it's time to let that go,
Because our nuptial equation
Was for a man, not an invasion.
I have to trust there was a reason,
This happened during hunting season...

Y'know, I didn't do nothin' wrong,
But now I'm living in a country song.
I don't care who sings it, it was written by Stephen King.
The stupid zombies killed the truck,
My husband ate the dog, and now it seems I'm stuck.
I just can't believe this started with a damn bee sting.
I just can't believe this started with a damn bee sting.
I just can't believe this started with a damn bee sting!

"That is...awesome."
