Song Lyric Sunday: Zombie Time

For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, writers were tasked to unearth a song with the given words—different or same—in either the lyrics or the title. Chan Sung Jung, also known as “The Korean Zombie,” made a splash into the UFC’s featherweight division in 2011 and has been collecting a cult-like following ever since. Win or lose, fans know when they hear “Zombie” by The Cranberries, “The Korean Zombie” will either continuously rise from the ashes during a spine-tingling fight of the night performance or he’ll go to the grave in pursuit of the win.  

Lyrics to “Zombie”:

Another head hangs lowly

Child is slowly taken

And the violence caused such silence

Who are we mistaken?

[Pre-Chorus]

But you see, it’s not me, it’s not my family

In your head, in your head, they are fightin’

With their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head, they are cryin’

[Chorus]

In your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie

What’s in your head, in your head?

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie-ie, oh

[Post-Chorus]

Du, du, du, du

Du, du, du, du

Du, du, du, du

Du, du, du, du

[Verse 2]

Another mother’s breakin’

Heart is takin’ over

When the violence causes silence

We must be mistaken

[Pre-Chorus]

It’s the same old theme, since 1916

In your head, in your head, they’re still fightin’

With their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head, they are dyin’

[Chorus]

In your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie

What’s in your head, in your head?

Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie-ie, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, eh-eh-oh, ra-ra

[Instrumental Outro]
