Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah
She’s the queen of the Voodoo-lah
No, she never went to school-ah
But you know you’ll never fool her
Don’t know anyone who’s cooler
Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah

Way down deep in zombie land
Way down in the deep dark fen
Mammy Beulah keeps a flock
You ought to see them zombie rock

Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah
She’s the queen of the Voodoo-lah
No, she never went to school-ah
But you know you’ll never fool her
Don’t know anyone who’s cooler
Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah

Zombies they don’t have to breathe
Don’t blink their eyes, don’t grit their teeth
Zombies they don’t have to sleep
Mammy said they easy keep

Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah
She’s the queen of the Voodoo-lah
No, she never went to school-ah
But you know you’ll never fool her
Don’t know anyone who’s cooler
Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah

Once I took that zombie home
But she didn’t stay there long
She only cooked a single dish
And I got tired of eatin’ fish

Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah
She’s the queen of the Voodoo-lah
No, she never went to school-ah
But you know you’ll never fool her
Don’t know anyone who’s cooler
Mammy Beulah, Mammy Beulah
