The Lyrics

"Bob! I thought you were dead!" "Nope!" "But how?"
I visit you
I visit you and chat like a couple of dudes
And e-even though you're six feet underneath my shoes
I've never felt that you were really-y gone, it's true-ue
But now there's a mystery
I gotta find out how you're here in front of me
Once I-I've finished the requisite "what the hell" speech
Must kno-ow if I should dance or run in fea-ear, yeah

I gotta kno-ow how you-ou're no longer dead
No longer dea-ead
I saw you take your last breath of life
Now you're ali-ive again, bu-ut why-y?

How were you raised?
Some ancient wizard? Maybe a dark deal was made?
If so-o, what was the fee? Your soul? No, your mate's?
Hang on a tic, would that be why-y you came here, Bo-ob?
Am I off the mark?
So we-ere you never dead at all? That's harsh
Could've told me you were plannin' a false depart
Graspin' for terms, this is a new thing for me-e, yeah

I gotta kno-ow how you-ou're no longer dead
No longer dea-ead
Was the doctor's diagnosis shite?
This isn't ri-ight, you lost your li-ife
That much I kno-ow, but you-ou're no longer dead
No longer dea-ead
There's no way I can believe my eyes
Must be a lie-ie, it must, mu-ust

It's clear to me there's some hoodoo he-ere, I can't
Help but think you're a zombie no-ow, man
At least you're not a rottin' o-one yet
I'm checkin' round
The funeral grou-ound if there's holes there now
See if it's only you-ou or there's a horde out
Don't take that tape off no-ow, it's only for my hea-ea-ea-ealth

Ma-an, I gotta know ho-ow you're no-o longer dead
No longer dea-ead
Only been a few weeks since you "died"
That's enough ti-ime for you to-o cli-imb
Out of your grave, that would make se-ense, ri-i-ight?
Doesn't answer how you're no longer dea-ead
How you're no longer dea-ead, I'm beggin', right
I gotta kno-ow how you-ou're no longer dead
No longer dea-ead
Are you immortal? Some prank gone wild?
I need a ni-ice cold bee-eer o-or fi-ive

Just thought of a twist that I could've used: "Bob! I thought you were dead!" "Nope!" "But I killed you myself!" "I know, I was there." "Oh yeah" "And there's a policeman right behind me" "As well as MONKEYS!" "Monkeys? There aren't any monkeys the- where'd you go?"
