Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Doris Day (of the Dead)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 205 : "Halloween"

Lyrics:

With motherly coolness
she slices the pie
for lunchtime - the school bus
Waves her kids goodbye
The happiest housewife
There's ever been
home making life
Let the cleaning begin!

She opens the door
and frowns at a smell
It's another chore
She's not doing well
Grabs her mop and a wet rag
Then climbs up the stairs
Puts hubby's heart in a bag
and cleans up clumps of hair

The flavor of fingers
Never tasted so good
The telephone ringers
are left of the hook
So she can just enjoy
This meal that she made
Her husband now devoid
Of body and brain

Eat your way out of marriage!
And swallow your rage
He'll never again disparage
How the house was arranged
No more complaining
That his dinner was burned
A few pieces remaining
You think his lessons's been learned?

Don't think it's absurd, DORIS
DAY OF THE DEAD
Got what he deserved, DORIS
DAY OF THE DEAD
Dining on his brains, DORIS
DAY OF THE DEAD
And freezing what remains, cleaning up all the bloodstains, and it
FEELS GREAT!

Kids are home from school
and it's time for a snack
with meat cutting tools
carves the spine from his back
The kids are good eaters
Fried Husband Rangoons.
Thankful for the Cleaver
A gift from her good friend June!

Eat your way out of wedlock!
Swallow your fears
You've ended the deadlock
No more insults and jeers
Can you smell the freedom?
Burning smell in the air
A Backyard bonfire
Her husband's bones and hair

No more dinner's burned, DORIS
DAY OF THE DEAD
He got just what he earned, DORIS
DAY OF THE DEAD
Devouring your husband, DORIS
DAY OF THE DEAD
Now joy is so abundant, dinner was just triumphant, and it
FEELS GREAT!

Doris sweeps the front hall,
Humming such a happy tune, and
The kids are playing ball
In the yard, in the sun, In the late afternoon
She's starting to get hungry
need to use the peas and prunes and
She smiles oh-so smugly
The In-laws, they are here, and come into the room
[Exit]
