Track Name: Goin Down To Eville
Going down to Eville
To have a bit of fun
Going down to Eville
Bearing gifts for everyone
Those who fail to love me
Those who've done me wrong
A taste of their own medicine
From the barrel of my gun

Going down to Eville
I'm not getting there by car
Going down to Eville
No, it's really not that far
Whichever way you're going
Eville lies ahead
You can always find it
Just follow the trail of dead

Eville! Dead ahead!

*break*

Going down to Eville
Where the blackness always shines
Where everyone's in hiding
There's no need to draw the blinds
Whether just for pleasure
Or punishment for your crimes
Death will always find you
It's just a matter of time

Death will always find you
It's just a matter of time
Track Name: Graveyard Shuffle
GRAVEYARD SHUFFLE:

V1:
If you want to be hip
And you want to be cool
Then we've got a new dance
You don't need no school
Try to clear your mind
Be ready for a scuffle
I hope you're strong enough
To do the Graveyard Shuffle
And it bleeds like this

CHORUS:
Two steps to the left
Two steps to the right
One big step back
One big step...(SCREAM!!)

V2:
It can't get no worse
Take the easy way out
Too tired to work
Take the tombstone route
To be a funky guy
You just have to let go
Could be fun to die
And join the Graveyard Show

Chorus:

SOLO:

V3:
Repeat V1 (hushed tone)

Chorus:
Track Name: Zombie Eskimos
Let us not forget the March of the Zombie Walruses---

A one-two, a one two three...

We march across the frozen tundra
Treading through the snow
Looking for some polar bears we Zombie Eskimos
Lost another finger, lost another limb
Wind cutting through our toes
Looking for brains on the frozen plains
with zombie eskimos

All we want is some human brains
Oh what a tasty dish
But there ain't no human soul 'round here
So I keep on eating fish

Oh zombie, zombie, zombie eskimo (2x)

We don't read no books, we don't watch no tv
Don't go to picture shows
There ain't a whole lot to do around here
For zombie eskimos
We're hiding in an igloo from the zombie walrus
Think they're getting close
And I've got a hunch that they're looking to lunch
On zombie eskimo

All we want is some human brains
Oh what a tasty dish
But there ain't no human soul 'round here
So I keep on eating fish

Oh zombie, zombie, zombie eskimo (8x)

*break*
Track Name: Butter Knife
Flowered upholstery
My starched white laced curtains
I water the flowers
My cat sleeps in sunlight
Which glows in the foyer

Butternut squash and deep dish apple pie
Twiced baked potatoes and fried green tomatoes
I flavored with fennel but you need your ketchup
Your ketchup, your ketchup, your ketchup, your ketchup, your ketchup

I have done what I've had to do
Now I'll do what I have to do
Do what I have to do (2x) (4x 2nd time through)

I want to saw off your head with a butterknife (saw off your head)
I want to saw off your head with a butterknife (saw off your head)
I have done what I've had to do
Now I'll do what I have to do
Do what I have to do

Solo:
I want to saw off your head with a butterknife
I want to saw off your, Saw off your, Saw off your head with a butterknife
I want to saw off your head with a butterknife

I have done what I've had to do
Now I'll do what I have to do
Do what I have to do (3x)
Track Name: Blood Suckin Baby
Blood Sucking Baby

You're my blood sucking baby
You're my little vampire queen
You're my blood sucking daddy
You know just what I need
You take the heart
Honey you take the neck
I love me a fresh aphrodisiac
You're my blood sucking daddy
You're my little vampire queen

I've never been a patient girl
I want it now
I don't know how I'm gonna get it
But I will some how
You better bring a fresh one home for me
Last time it was Italian
Tonight's Chinese

Feast all night 'til the sun comes up
Drink warm blood from a loving cup
You're my blood sucking daddy
You're my little vampire queen

*break* (add patter... you're just my type, type O negative, etc)

You're the master of seduction
You know you're such a scream
You're the sexiest little vamp tramp on the scene
I love your fangs
I love your smile
I love your dead on vampire style
You're my blood sucking daddy
You're my little vampire queen

We're living in our coffin built for two
You can lie next to me honey
And I'll lie next to you
Around about midnight we'll seek our prey
We'll have little snack before the break of day

Feast all night til the sun comes up
Drink warm blood from a loving cup
You're my blood sucking daddy
You're my little vampire queen

You're my blood sucking baby
You're my little vampire dream

You're my blood sucking daddy
You're my little vampire queen
Track Name: In The Yard
in the yard, in the yard they will search
in the yard, in the yard covered with earth
in the yard with the insects and birds
in the yard with the ashes we burned

run wild darlin
they’ll never find you in the forest
I’ll be crying in the basement
cleaning bloody palms and fingers

in the yard, in the yard they will search
in the yard, in the yard covered with earth
in the yard with the insects and birds
in the yard, ashes we burned

hide deep under the ground there
where no one goes to seek a killer
I’ll bleach the floor and hide the pieces
and wash the fingerprints that you left behind

in the yard, in the yard they will search
in the yard with the ashes we burned
in the yard in the yard with the insects and birds
in the yard, covered with earth

it’s over now and what’s done is done
like a fugitive, I’ll live
my life on the run
shed no tears, don’t cry for me
let my memory fade
what is, is
and what shall be, shall be

so run, run run
run run wild
run run run
in the yard
in the yard with the insects and birds
Track Name: See You Soon
I'll See You Soon

Digging for gold, digging for gold
Dig myself a deeper hole
The thought occurs beneath the moon
I'm stealing diamonds from your tomb
I'll see you soon, ooh, I'll see you soon

Piles and mounds, piles and mounds
A backwards way of keeping grounds
Tarnished rings and vintage bling
Picking fruit off of boney things
I'll see you soon, ooh, I'll see you soon

Another handful and I'll find
Peace of mind, peace of mind
Another handful and I'll find
Peace of mind, peace of mind

Carved in stone, carved in stone
Dates and letters, beloved sons
All your names are blurred by moon
But I will bring this home to you
I'll see you soon, ooh, I'll see you soon
I'll see you soon, ooh, I'll see you soon
Track Name: Chunks The Clown
I was only four years old
He came towards me in red nose
I'm scarred for life I'm sure it shows
And his name was Chunks (Chunks!)

Chunks always treated me so bad
And the thing that was most sad
Is that he was my step-dad
And his name was Chunks (Chunks!)

Mommy why'd you do it?
Mommy why'd you do it?
Mommy why'd you marry it? (2x)

Chunks the clown he made my mom his wife
Chunks the clown where're you going with that knife?

Chunks never gave me candy or pie
Just vodka, bourbon, gin and rye
No balloons no birthday cake
Mom you've made a big mistake
And his name was Chunks (Chunks!)

Chunks the clown brings all the children down
Chunks the clown, he always wears a frown
Chunks the clown he made my mom his wife
Chunks the clown where're you going with that knife?
