Are you ready? (yeah!)
I got a brand new dance here for you,
This one, it's called, the Zombie (Arghhh!)

W-when you hear that zombie rockin' slow,
Til the break o' dawn in the Congo,
Ain't gonna lay to rest, 'til the mornin' light,
Gonna raise some sand in the dead o' night

(To the left, to the right)
M-mama hear them mumblin' low,
(Til the dawn breakin' light)
They go shufflin', shufflin', across the floor, (ooh ooh ooh)
(In the dead of the night)
Can you hear the little children cry?
(Cryin' "Mama, mama") Watchout!
(Arghh!!) Zombie's a terrible fright
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

This old new sensation,
Nuther stone cold hit,
Comin' up out the radio,
It go so slow, it don't never quit
(ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
Man, you can't fight it, don't even try,
Left an' right, they's goin' in drag-step time,
This old repetition make 'em lose their mind
(ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
So children,
Direct your feet right way on 'long
That all infectious beat, c'mon,
Everyone you know's out in the street,
We gon' see if you can't sing along..

W-when you hear that zombie rockin' slow,
Til the break o' dawn, in the Congo,
Ain't gonna lay to rest, 'til the mornin' light,
Gon' raise some sand in the dead o' night

(To the left, to the right)
M-mama hear them mumblin' low
(Til the dawn breakin' light)
They go shufflin', shufflin', across the floor, (ooh ooh ooh)
(In the dead of the night)
Can you hear the little children cry?
(Cryin' "Mama, mama") Watchout!
(Arghh!!) Zombie's a terrible fright
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

I grown so 'fraid of the man in the street,
With a finger on the pulse, look dead on his feet,
Way he say, "All I wanna do is eat, an eat.."
(ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
I close my eyes,
But why can I not rest ?
Cause the fear of death that do not die,
Unsettle me where I lie,
(ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
That's why I bring 'em my best ol' slow-footed jump,
Here rollin' with the things in the night go bump
I wanna rid my head of all that nasty, nigglin' junk

W-when you hear this zombie rockin' slow,
Til the break o' dawn, in the Congo,
Ain't gonna lay to rest, 'til the mornin' light,
Gon' raise some sand in the dead o' night

(To the left, to the right)
M-mama hear them mumblin' low
(Til the dawn breakin' light)
They go shufflin', shufflin', across the floor, (ooh ooh ooh)
(In the dead of the night)
Can you hear the little children cry?
(Cryin' "Mama, mama") Watchout!
(Arghh!!) Zombie's a terrible fright
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
