Cool Zombie
Adam Ant Lyrics


For a time he lived in Tennessee
A brilliant hillbilly
A cool zombie
The People there were real friendly
Flat top cats and dungarees
A cool zombie
The town of Dayton suited me
54 Pickup, eggs over easy
Zombie

Took him a trip to London town
Goldfish eyes and a permanent frown
A cool zombie
We haven't seen ya in a while
Would give you anything but a smile
A cool zombie
The pink's shilling
And the body was willing
But not playing with a full deck

The dead man eyes a giveaway
His baby blues a thousand miles away
A cool zombie

(Come closer)
Dead man with a famous head
(Come closer)
Earning him a crust of bread
(Come closer)
I'll sign my book of the dead
(Come closer)
I might even sign your leg
(Come closer)
Here's my best side baby
(Come closer)
Ten words in my vocabulary

I bought an A-framed house to suit me
On top of the Vale in Tennessee
The place that made world history
The Monkey Trial of 23
Cool zombie

The kind of place a lost soul could hide
Hadn't changed since Bonnie and Clyde
This goes out to Ronnie B
The sailor man on his Harley
Showed me how good life could be
A real-life tour of God's country
The good folk there were good to me
They never ever twigged
I was a cool zombie

Yeah!

2019, saw him this summer at the Beacon Theater here in NYC. Friend or Foe Tour. First time seeing him and I was blown away. Great presence, great moves, great personality, tight band and an especially amazing PAIR of drummers. His early work is so rhythm/percussion focused but you really feel it live. On certain songs in the set there are these undeniably primal moments, both drummers playing their parts and the two guitarists playing stand-up drums of their own—the audience jumps to their feet, not a soul sitting down. Highly recommend seeing him live if you’re a fan of great Rock and roll, punk/post punk, rock-a-billy etc—sh*t that makes you move! #antmusic
