SONG: The Dumb Ones Don’t Live Long

So earlier today in her journal, cadhla made a statement to the effect of how she even doesn’t pretend to be a dumb blonde, as it doesn’t fit her self-image, and besides which, she said, “The dumb ones die fast.”

And, that got me to thinking. This usually indicates danger.

The Dumb Ones Don’t Live Long
by Rob Wynne
TTTO: “Only The Good Die Young” by Billy Joel

Well, hey there, Blondie, don’t make me search
You think you can run faster than I can lurch
Or that you’ll be safe if you hide in a church
I hate to tell you that you’re wrong

Well, they showed you a house and they said stay away
But you couldn’t wait past the end of the day
Now your brains are the center dish on my buffet
You will not outlive this song
You know the dumb ones, they don’t live long

You might have heard I died and was buried and gone
But I’ve come back and I’m here until dawn
When you see my hand coming up through the lawn
It might be best if you ran along

So come on, now Blondie, leave me a trail
Your attempts to escape are predestined to fail
Sooner or later, I’m bound to prevail
And your flesh will make me strong
You know the dumb ones, they don’t live long

You had a nice white dress that you shed for no apparent reason
Then you came down the stairs
Mmmmm, In your underwear
Oh, but Blondie you’re a morsel who has just come into season
Your night will just get worse
Once I stop to eat your boyfriend first
Whoa-oh-oh

You might think that the dead would just stay in the ground
But I’ve never been one for just lying around
And you can’t hide long before you are found
You shouldn’t go where you don’t belong
You know the dumb ones, they don’t live long

Oh, your mama said fast living only leaves you in a poor condition
This isn’t what she meant
But now you’re cornered and your luck is spent
Whoa-oh-oh

Come out come out come out, Blondie don’t make me search
You think you run much faster than I can lurch
Or that you are safe if you hide in a church
I hate to tell you that you’re wrong
You know the dumb ones, they don’t live long

  1. Now stop that! Only Jeff and Maya have my permission to ruin my favorite classic rock songs! 😎

  2. That’s . . . that’s . . . that’s . . .

    That’s so true.

  3. …I love you, darlin’.

  4. Blondie?

    TTO: The Stranger

    She is blond, she is hot
    She is out where no girl should be
    You have risen you are hunting
    You are looking for fresh meat
    So you stalk and taunt your prey
    And the panicked little blondie
    Tries to run away in terror
    So you play with her and follow
    Rushing eager for the treat

    Oh the hunt is such a thrill
    Yet some nagging sense of danger
    Like some disregarded warning
    Seems to echo in your ear
    Now the girl’s no longer running
    And things keep on getting stranger
    As the blond girl turns and smiles
    And the Slayer stands revealed

    You try to scare her once again
    But she only laughs, and strikes swift as the wind
    Now it’s you that tries to run away
    To flee the hunter’s laugh, to live another day

    You may never understand
    How this Slayer is inspired
    She is not afraid or stupid
    And you’ll find she’s very strong

    As her stake goes through your rib cage
    You disolve like ash in fire
    As yet one more vamp expires
    When the Slayer comes along!

  5. Classic. Just love it!

  6. *claps merrily* Bravo! Encore Encore!

  7. Fun! Will we be hearing this at the April housefilk?
