The Lyrics

Always awkward when you wake up from unconsciousness and your first question is "why am I in a grave?".
I'm no corpse

Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo

Well, I know that I'm not the picture of good health
But I do think that you're overreactin'
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
I woke up in a grave in the middle of nowhere
Look here, I'm no corpse, why'd you bury me?
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
This is all a bit weird, I coughed and hacked
And you think that calls for sudden action?
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
I'll soon be a corpse one of these days
And so you figured you'd best bury me
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo

But I say no, no, no, no-no-no
I say no, no, I'm healthy as can be
No, no, no, no-no-no
I say no, no, you jumped the gun, you-ou see
Hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo

All I had was a coughin' fit, not really dire
Even had my pills in my right hand, dude
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
But you chose your course, which was "knock me unconscious
And then lay me to rest", when was your last bee-ee-eer?
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
Woke up with dirt in my face and inside my underwear
I'm sure I'm no corpse, please don't bury me
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
Don't give me that crap "Oh no! You're a zombie!"
Can't be delusional to this damn degree-ee-ee, yeah
Whoo-hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo

Cause I say no, no, no, no-no-no
I say no, no, there's nothin' wrong with me
No, no, no, no-no-no
I say no, no, to conclusion, you-ou leaped
Hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo
Pretty big-ass leap, yeah-eah-eah (hoo-ooh, whoo-hoo)

I said no, no, no, no, no, no-o
No, no-o-o, I've no fatal disease (whoo-hoo-ooh)
No, no, no, no (whoo-hoo), no, no-o (whoo-hoo-ooh)
No, no-o-o, except for your "help", geez

No, no (I'm no corpse), no, no-no-no (why'd you bury me?)
No, no (missed a few steps there, I'm not too sure how you reached, yeah, yeah, yeah) (whoo-hoo-ooh)
"No, no (he's a corpse) (whoo-hoo), should be buried deep (whoo-hoo-ooh)"
No, no (few brain cells loose there, stop pilin' the dirt on me)

Clearly the dude freaked when he thought he had a body to dispose of...
