Ghost Quartet the Musical - Any Kind of Dead Person Lyrics

(Music and Lyrics by Dave Malloy)

DAVE
If you could be a bird
What kind of bird would you be?

BRITTAIN
A robin

GELSEY
If you could be a cat
What kind of cat would you be?

BRITTAIN
A lion

BRENT
If you could be a part of breakfast
What part of breakfast would you be?

BRITTAIN
The piece of toast

DAVE
And if you could be a dead guy
What kind of dead guy would you be?

BRITTAIN
I’d be a ghost

Don’t wanna be a zombie
Cuz zombies are just good fun
Don’t wanna be a vampire
Cuz they can’t feel the sun
Don’t wanna be a medical corpse
The students would cut me wrong
No i wanna be a ghost
And go wooooo all night long

Don’t wanna be a ghoul
Cuz i respect myself
Don’t wanna be some ashes
In a coffee can on the shelf
Don’t wanna be a wraith
I could never be that strong
No Ii wanna be a ghost
And go wooooo all night long

Don’t wanna be a poltergeist
Cuz i’m no movie star
Don’t wanna be a lich
I’m not even sure what they are
Don’t wanna be just a brain in jar
In a lab in south hong kong
No I wanna be a ghost
And go wooooo all night long

Don’t wanna be a spook
Cuz that word’s a little racist
Don’t wanna be a mummy
I admit it, i’m an ageist
Don’t wanna be a white walker
That’s some other fellow’s song
No i wanna be a ghost
And go wooooo all night long
