LYRICS

Hello? A party? At the graveyard?
Well, that’s exclusive!
I hear people are dying to get in there!
I’ll be right over.

It was a Zombie Jamboree.
Took place in a Cape Town cemetery.
Oh, it was a zombie jamboree.
Took place in a Cape Town cemetery.

Zombies from all parts of South Africa
Jumped from their graves and started to rock,
And since the season was carnivale,
They got together to have a ball.
Singing…

Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
Well, they don’t have a care ’cause they’re stone-dead already!
Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
At the Zombie Jamboree!

Oh, all them zombies don’t behave.
Jump up and down on each others’ grave.   
They twitch and jerk and snap their thumbs.
Bang on their headstones like a drum.

You know the lead singer starts to make his rhyme.
The other zombies, they rock in time.
The more they dance, the more they smell,
So when they’re coming you can always tell!

Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
Well, they don’t have a care ’cause they’re stone-dead already!
Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
At the Zombie Jamboree!

Oh, hi, my name’s Paul. I see you’re a zombie. Fantastic!
Hey, uh, by any chance, are you a musician? Do you play by ear?
Oh, I figured you did because you seem to have left your ear right by the keyboard.
If you’ll excuse me, I have some other zombies I want to mingle with.
Well, then I have to get back to the song.

One zombie lady says, “Come over here!
I’m gonna catch you now, my dear!
I’m gonna make you call me ‘Sweetie-pie!’ ”
And I says, “Oh, no! I’d rather die!”

“Well, that I can do!” And she swung her hips,
And she tried to kiss me with her zombie lips.
I’d never seen such a horror in my life!
Can you imagine me with a zombie wife?

Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
Well, they don’t have a care ’cause they’re stone-dead already!
Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
At the Zombie Jamboree!

Oh oh oh, back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
Well, they don’t have a care ’cause they’re stone-dead already!
Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
At the Zombie Jamboree!

Back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
At the Zombie Jamboree!

Oh, oh, oh, back-to-back, belly-to-belly!
At the Zombie Jamboree!
