Wombie Zombie - Billy Taylor And The Tear Drops

Wombie Zombie

Billy Taylor And The Tear Drops

(Fields - Morgan, FELCO, 1959)

The night was dark and gloomy
And tombstones flipped their lid
And out jumps this daddy bird
With a lily on his head
He said hey hey hey ho ho there
Who has stirred my bed
Who's this crazy wise guy
That said rock'n'roll was dead
Wombie zombie, wombie zombie wombie zombie

Yeah skeletons they jumped out
And they lined up two by two
And then they started strollin'
To the san-a-doody-boo
The hop began to rock
Said to kill the leader
Take me to this this cat
They call the purple people eater
Wombie zombie, wombie zombie wombie zombie

By the door of inner sanctum
Ivy leagues were lurkin' by
Little zombies were shoutin'
It's either rock or die
Well Short Blue's eyes were shinin'
The skeletons were wed
The wedding march of man
Because rock'n'roll ain't dead
Wombie zombie, wombie zombie wombie zombie

The earth began to tremble
The guitars made a sound
Raunchy men and remron
They were rockin' all around
The tombstone of a cat
Written as it read
Didn't mean all you crazy ones
'Cause rock'n'roll ain't dead
Wombie zombie, wombie zombie wombie zombie
