Sorry To Have Caused You So Much Pain

by @jtsteam

Liner Notes

I saw the Vonnegut challenge, and tried something similar with a book I picked off the shelf more or less randomly. It turned out to be Reaper Man by Terry #Pratchett, and the first thing anyone said on the page I turned to was (something like) "My friend here is a zombie". So that led to this bit of #silly #ukulele #filk

I bet this is isn't what anyone expects from the title :). But I didn't want it to give anything away... #fuc

(Edit: I tweaked the lyrics a bit, though I didn't update the demo accordingly.)

Lyrics

My friend has had an accident and
You'll need to beware
The same thing could happen to you
If you don't take care

Before we go out he has to have something to eat
Or I have to make excuses to everyone we meet

Sorry to have caused you so much pain
I didn't think he planned to eat your brain
You see it's just that my friend here's a zombie
I'm afraid my friend here's a zombie

He still works in our office
We don't discriminate
But he just chased a customer
With his lumbering gait

It seems he was in need of an afternoon snack
And that was the cause of the unprovoked attack

Sorry to have caused you so much pain
I didn't think he planned to eat your brain
You see it's just that my friend here's a zombie
I'm afraid my friend here's a zombie

Sorry that you had to get infected
And we didn't keep you suitably protected
I'm afraid my friend here's a zombie
I'm afraid my friend here's a zombie

Classic JTSteam here. I love the sound out of your ukulele here, very rich. And, of course, it's weird and twisted, in exactly the best way. Keep pushing this!

I really enjoyed this! I liked where you hung a little on "everyone we meet", and the play on words was nice. The humor throughout was sweet and gross and all the things I enjoy, and I really liked all of your couplets! Keep it up 👍
