Rockapella Two From Ny
Zombie Jamboree
(Conrad Mauge Jr., 3rd verse lyric by Sean Altman)
Vocal arrangement: Sean Altman, David Yazbek & Bill Stral

* Back to back! Belly to belly! Yes, my friends,
Back to back! Ha ha ha ha! Belly to belly.

* Repeat

It was a Zombie Jamboree,
Took place in the New York Cemetery.
It was a Zombie Jamboree,
Took place in the New York Cemetery.

Zombies from all parts of the island
Some of them were great calypsonians.
Since the season was carnival,
They got together in bacchanal
HUH! And they were singing:

** Back to back, belly to belly
Well I don’t give a damn
‘Cause I’m stoned dead already!
Back to back, belly to belly
It’s a Zombie Jamboree

One female zombie, she wouldn’t behave,
She how she’s dancing out of the grave.
In one hand she’s holding a quart of rum;
The other hand is knocking a conga drum.

You know the lead singer starts
To make his rhyme,
While the other zombies rockin’ in time.
One bystander, he had this to say,
“It was a trip to see the zombies break away”
SHAH! And they were singing:

** Repeat twice

Back to back! Everyone we sing
“Back to Back!” And Belly to belly;
Then Back to back! One two three four….

Yeah, what a Zombie Jamboree;
>From Times Square to the Statue of Liberty.
Uptown, Downtown, Zombie Jamboree!
Wow! Yeah! There’s a high-wire zombie
‘Tween the World Trades,
A King Kong zombie on the Empire State,
But the biggest zombies, Tokyo to Rome,
The zombies who call this city “home.”

Hah! What they do! Huh!

** Repeat and fade
