EVIL PRINCE: (mammified fake-Broadway singing)
What is happenin' to me!
An' also to de ol' ZOM-BIE
I used tum know?

Of c'ose dey once was so spectaculuhhh!
Now we be talkin' de vernaculuhhh!
Dis a strange kind o' reactium
To de pig we et befo'!

I's immune to de Re-zease,
I s'pose fum suckin' up de greeze
Fum de duo-deenum dribblin's outa de pig befo'!

I can laugh 'n rub my chin
When my Re-zease come rollin' in,
It's jes' like catchin' a second win'!
I feel so gay-y-y-y-y-y!

Some mights refer to me as scum,
'Cause where dey all be comin' from
When de GALOOT CO-LOG-NUH rushin' down de plain
Is underneef some ragg'dy dirt
In de suburbean out-skirt
Of ol' Manhattin',
Traffick pattin'
Near de gay white way!

I gets clammy, sayin' "MAMMY"
I gets chills all up my spine!
I gets wistful wit a fistful
Of ve-ne-she-um bline!

Jes' like tuggin' on de heart-strings!
Jes' like dem lil' ol' fallin' apart things,
Jes' like whatevuh dat is rotten, yessir!
We has sho'ly has not fo-gotten
How t'pretend to sing!

Now, deys hope, we ain't gwine die!
Only de suckers forced t'buy
Dem 'spensive tickets we be sellin' at de doo'!

We gots an' ugly, ugly O'PHAN ANNIE!
An' de traditium will go on, 'n on, 'n on

I loves t'see de, see de ZOMBIE fly!
It sorta makes ya, makes ya wanna cry!
'Cause we is Broadway!
We's expensive,
An' we can't,
I said we can't,
Can't never die!
Can't never die!

Yessir, you're too kind!
