– “Dead Cheerleaders” (mp3 download)

See below for guitar chords! No offense meant to any present, former, living, or dead cheerleaders.

Cheerleaders came to the door selling cookies
They were raising money for crazy acrobatics
But I told them I could not support their evil cause
So many cheerleaders fall and break their necks

And I don’t like dead cheerleaders
They are much cuter when they’re alive
I don’t like dead cheerleaders
So please don’t take revenge on me and mine

And think of all the jocks, what would they do?
After all, high school years are their peak
The cheerleader slaying scourge must be stopped
Before there are no popular girls left

And jocks don’t like dead cheerleaders
Plus, we run the risk of a zombie army
I don’t like undead cheerleaders
…that look in their eye …just like the living ones

On the other hand, perhaps cheerleading was invented
By the rejects, the geeks, the readers, the people of my tribe
Perhaps school spirit was all a genius plan to exterminate the cheerleaders
To make sure that the downtrodden students could thrive

If so, it backfired, so I won’t be buying cookies
From girls in short skirts risking their lives
So that they can snub the people with less fashion sense
I cannot support this systematized oppression

That’s why I don’t like dead cheerleaders
They are much cuter when they’re alive
I don’t like dead cheerleaders
And we need some left over to make
Bring It On Five.

Yes we need some left over to make Bring It On Five…

  1. Sick. The perfect holiday for it. :)

    Now I must get back to digging tiger traps in the front lawn for the beggars that decide to leave the safety of the sidewalk on their way to ring the bell. Can you loan me some sharpened bamboo stakes?

  3. Ok Raph….

    I don’t like dead developers
    Their evil knows no bounds
    They are the envelopers
    of fun wrought by Hades’ hounds

    Your time they’ll take
    While taken to the hill
    In the story they bake
    Your grave they will till

    The worlds they make
    Will suck all your will
    And when you wake
    They’ll send you a bill

    I don’t like dead developers
    Their evil knows no bounds
    They are the envelopers
    of fun wrought by Hades’ hounds

  4. Thanks for the lyrics, I ll download that song.
    Regards from Germany
