“Some Zombie That I Used to Know” (Gotye Parody)

Hey all,

I thought this up a few minutes ago and wanted somewhere to post this in public. I don’t usually post this sort of stuff on my blog, but I thought it was funny and thought a few people might enjoy it.  Weird Al Yankovic, if you want to use this, you are more than welcome to it.  I’ll sue anyone else who tries to make this into a song without giving me credit for the lyrics.  That said, enjoy!

“Some Zombie That I Used to Know”

Now and then I think of when you weren’t infected,
When you were dead but then you opened up your eyes.
I told myself that you’d be kind to me,
You were still my friend so far as I could see,
But then you groaned and it’s a sound I still remember.

You can get addicted to a certain kind of organ.
Said you were hungry for some brains…always some brains.
So when I found your hands around my head
I started wishing you had just stayed dead
And I’ll admit I started thinking “Yep, he’s a zombie.”

But you didn’t have to gut me out.
Make out like you wouldn’t eat me and then bit my shoulder.
And I don’t even bleed that much, but
You started with my kidneys and it feels so rough.
No you didn’t have to start so low.
Had your friends devour my legs
Because they shared your hunger.
Guess that I just ran too slow,
Now you’re just a zombie that I used to know.

Now and then I think of all the times you chewed my liver…
But had me believing it was always supper that I was.
Now you don’t want to eat my brain.
Said you’d never cause me pain.
You said that you could let it go
and I wouldn’t catch you gnawing on somebody that you used to knoooowwwww…

But you didn’t have to gut me out.
Make out like you wouldn’t eat me and then bit my shoulder.
And I don’t even bleed that much, but
You started with my kidneys and it feels so rough.
No you didn’t have to start so low.
Had your friends devour my legs
Because they shared your hunger.
Guess that I just ran too slow,
Now you’re just a zombie that I used to know.

Now you’re just a zombie that I used to know.
Some zomBEEEEE…(that I used to know)
Now you’re just a zombie that I used to know.

    I started giggling around this point. Sounds like something out of a horror comedy.

    I can’t tell you if you have the rhythm right, but I can see this as a YouTube parody.

  2. This reminds me of the book The Zombie-Wilson Diaries for some reason.

  5. My favorite line: “You can get addicted to a certain kind of organ.” Very poetic!
