The Mummy
Bob McFadden & Dor Lyrics


[MUMMY:] I'm a mummy. I scare people. Watch what happens when I walk up to
somebody.
I'm a mummy.
[FIRST PERSON:]
[MUMMY:] I was born one thousand nine hundred and fity-nine years ago. My
daddy was a mummy, too. Watch what happens when I walk up to somebody.
I'm a mummy.
[SECOND PERSON:]
[MUMMY:] I don't try to scare people. I really came back to life to buy a
copy of "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb", but people run from me.
Watch what happens when I walk up to somebody.
I'm
a mummy.
[THIRD PERSON:]
[MUMMY: ]I wish there was somebody somewhere who wasn't afraid of me. Oh,
well. Watch what happens when I walk up to somebody.
I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] That's cool.
[MUMMY: ]I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] You mean you're a mother.
[MUMMY:] No, I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] I'm a beatnik.
[MUMMY: ]People are afraid of me.
[BEATNIK:] Yeah, I'll bet.
[MUMMY:] I was born one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine years ago.
[BEATNIK:] Oh, yeah, like that's a long gig.
[MUMMY:] Where can I buy a copy of "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb"?
[BEATNIK:] Oooh, man, I don't dig that trash. You know like Brubeck,
Sherwin, modern jazz quartet?
[MUMMY:] I'm a mummy.
[BEATNIK:] Man, you got a warped groove.
[MUMMY:] Aren't you afraid of me? Aren't you gonna scream?
[BEATNIK:] Oh, yeah, like "help."

I was in the sixth grade when this song came out. We had a "talent" contest and one kid put on a biker costume and pretended that he was the beatnik.

Alex Buckellew

1959 years old is actually pretty young for a mummy.

Salty Llama

Heard it on the radio once while traveling. Just remembered to look it up. We all got a kick out of it.

Noah The Troll-Hunting Christian Spy

This year he'll be two thousand and twenty years old.

It's OK mummy, you can find "Kookie Kookie Lend Me Your Comb" on YouTube now.  Also, it might help if you come up with a better opening line than "I'm a mummy."

In the tradition of schoolkids the world over, I'd've had to call him a bitch where he, and tattletails, couldn't hear.

Doug Montgomery

I wouldn't have called him that. He wouldn't tolerate it.

Sailor Barsoom

@Doug Montgomery
Bitch!

Doug Montgomery

Somebody had a copy of that book at school. The teacher confiscated it and tore it up and said, "That's the way the Kookie crumbles."

+Sailor Barsoom I suggest "UNDYING!"
