Cool Zombie

For a time I lived in Tennessee
A pretty hillbilly
A Cool Zombie

The people there were real friendly
Flat top cats and dungarees
A Cool Zombie
The town of Dayton suited me
'54 pickup, eggs over easy
A Zombie

Took him a trip to London town
Goldfish eyes and a permanent frown
A Cool Zombie
Y
ou haven't seen me in a while
Would give you anything but a smile
A Cool Zombie
Took the King's shilling
And the body was willing
But not playing with a full deck

The dead man eyes a giveaway
His baby blues a thousand miles away
A Cool Zombie

(Come closer)
Dead man with a famous head
(Come closer)
Earning him a crust of bread
(Come closer)
I'll sign my book of the dead
(Come closer)
I might even sign your leg
(Come closer)
Gimme your best side Baby (kissing sound)
(Come closer)
Come learn my vocabulary

I bought an A framed house that suited me
On top of the vale in Tennessee
The place that made world history
The Monkey trial of '23
A Cool Zombie

The kind of place that a lost soul could hide
Hadn't changed since Bonnie and Clyde
And this goes out to Ronnie B.
The sailor man on his Harley
He showed me how good life could be
A real live tour of God's country
The good folk there were good to me
They never ever twigged
I was a Cool Zombie

Yeah


A big thank you to the die-hards from Ant Rap, the adam-ant.net forum, with special thanks to iCkY for his hard work in helping to decipher these lyrics.
The above is the version Adam uses on stage (see photo), so I figured that should be considered the "official" version, even though the single sounds slightly different.
